A watch is a style essential that every girl should have. Now watches may be nowhere near as popular as they once were, thanks to the invention of smartphones. But they make a fantastic accent piece for almost any outfit. A watch is the ultimate accessory, and yet, far too many of us girls have no idea how to go about buying one. What it’s important to remember is that as with our clothes, makeup and other accessories, we all have our own unique style. However, one thing that every watch needs to have in common is an elegant, timeless look. After all, if you’re going to invest in a watch, you want it to last you for years. Think about what you want from a watch. Will you wear it every day or are you looking for something as an occasion piece? Do you want a metal watch strap or a leather design? What shape face would you prefer? Is there a certain metal — gold, silver or platinum — that you’re after? Who knew there was so much to think about when selecting a watch? When choosing a new watch, here’s what you need to think about: Digital Or Analog First things first, you need to focus on the type of watch you want. Are you an analog girl or someone who prefers digital? There are lots of beautiful analog watches for women — just for the record, they actually have hands to tell time! If the truth be told, digital watches tend to be designed more for sports than everyday wear. So for a stylish watch, your best bet is to select an analog design. There are plenty to choose from, so whatever your style there’s sure to one that’s perfect. The Perfect Face Shape The next step is to select the perfect face shape of your watch. The shape of the watch face is what gives it its own unique style, so it’s crucial you pick the perfect shape.

Last but not least, there is also a range of watch shapes that are unique – triangles, ovals, etc. These types of faces are perfect if you like to be different and have your own sense of style. Picking The Right Strap Now it’s time to think about the type of watch strap you would like. The two main choices are metal – gold, silver or platinum or material, like leather. The type of strap you opt for will depend on a range of things, including your personal tastes and how often you plan on wearing the watch. For example, metal watch straps have a fancier look to them, making them better suited as occasion pieces. While leather straps tend to work well for everyday wear, as they’re simple and stylish. If you are someone who loves timeless styles, a leather watch strap will be your choice.
