What’s our ultimate must-have accessory that we’ve been drooling over lately? Watches with statement-making straps of course! If you have a small wrist and you’re not into the over the top large-face trend for watches this season, then this trend is definitely for you. Bulgari has been embracing this trend for quite some time, and now designers such as Roberto Cavalli, Hermès, and Chanel have been joining the bandwagon by incorporating pearls and diamonds. Timeless yet unique, these types of watches are amazing for bracelet-lovers, because they can be effortlessly paired with some chunky bangles or bold cuff without looking too over-the-top. CK loves that this trend comes in so many styles to choose from; studs, charms, and spikes make a unique look for spring! We’re excited to score a few of our favorites on our most-wanted list during Madison Avenue’s Watch Week in New York City.
To stand out in the crowd, try this handcrafted La Mer Collections beauty for only $92.00 at LaMerCollections.com. La Mer is known for their wrap watches, sold at some of our favorite online retailers like ShopBop and NastyGal. The inspiration for this watch was based on a trip to Kruger National Park in South Africa. The designer, Martine Ilana, went to a game preserve and was inspired by all of the snakeskin and reptiles, and created a “snake” watch, wrapping around the wrist four times. We love it for it’s small case and stylish black and white color combo.
Seen on celebrities like Blake Lively and Emma Watson, this trend is taking over wrist’s everywhere. If you decide to take part in it, make sure that you don’t add too many bracelets along with it, especially if the face of the watch is fragile and can break easily. The perfect thing to add with this trend? A sweet new crop top or tank — don’t let long sleeves cover up this hot item.
