When you have a favorite watch and a favorite bracelet, the ideal thing is to wear them together. However, not all watches and bracelets are made for each other. In this guide, we'll walk you through some tips and tricks on wearing those two accessories together. It's not science, but there is some know-how about this combination. Our team at CLÉONE knows better than anyone how to style these traditional pieces of jewelry.
MATERIALS MATER GREATLY!
Ensure that both accessories' materials and textures match because you need to have a leading material in both. If your watch has a metal strap, you have to pick a bracelet that's metal or has some charm of metal accent. If your watch has a leather strap, then go for more casual bracelets that have leather in them. The colors of the materials matter since you can’t mix and match gold and silver, for example. That’s the rule! If you can find a color like rose gold to help even out the two metals, then it’s all good.
WHAT COLORS CAN DO THE JOB?
If you're going for a subtle business look, it's good to match both the strap and the bracelet's nude colors. However, if you love a bit of an edgy style, then go for huge contrasts in colors. There are so many watch straps that can do wonders for your accessorizing. Nevertheless, it's a beautiful way to update an old and rugged watch by getting a cool rainbow strap, for example. It’s all in the imagination of the wearer. If you want to make sure that your jewelry goes well together, you can spread your bracelets and watches on a table and start arranging them. The main goal is to express yourself freely and look great!
AMOUNT OF BRACELETS
Here you have to be proportional and don't go overboard. It can be tempting to put all your favorites together and call it a day. However, if your watch is a bit chunkier, we suggest combining it with a slim and delicate bracelet. The maximum amount for bracelets is around three since more seems a bit cluttered. On the other hand, if the timepiece is more delicate, you can add three bracelets for a fuller effect. Remember that the watch is the main star here and bracelets are there to highlights its beauty!
DECIDE ON A SUITABLE OUTFIT
When deciding on how to combine bracelets and watches, it's good to think about what you're wearing. We recommend a sparklier metal watch combined with one delicate bracelet of the same color and material for an evening dress. However, it could be fun for coffee with friends to mix and match textures and colors like beaded leather bracelets and a fun colored watch.
However you choose to create your style, it’s worth it, as long as you’re having fun and enjoying it. You can arrange your very own bracelet and watch duo/trio with accessories from our collections.
