With the excitement of New Year officially over, it is the time of year where we can look ahead to next season’s key fashion and jewellery trends. Okay, so there may still be snow on the ground and a weather forecast that will frighten even our warmest of coats, but dreaming of the Spring/Summer’13 paradise is definitely warming us up.
Hilary Alexander, fashion correspondent from The Daily Telegraph, recently wrote an article for International Jewellery London highlighting the upcoming jewellery trends that graced the catwalks in Fashion Weeks across the world last Autumn. Hilary sighted jewelled brooches, Liz Taylor inspired necklaces and “pearls the size of marbles” used to accessorise the staple S/S’13 designs. With these beautiful designs ready to be worn and loved this S/S’13, it is clear statement is extremely important and certainly something worth adding to your jewellery box in the forthcoming seasons.
It is no secret that I am obsessed with statement jewellery; from collars to cuffs, there is always room to accessorise my outfits with a uniquely bold and exciting piece of jewellery. One of my must-have pieces that I refuse to leave the house without is my watch - not just any watch - a bold, eye-catching and of course statement watch.
In the past few years we have seen the rise of women sporting androgynous clothing, from loose fitted shirts to tailored trousers and blazers. This trend has opened up women’s wardrobes not only to a whole new structure of clothing, but has also given birth to the statement fashion watch.
From DKNY to Michael Kors, we have seen a surge in chunky, masculine watches worn by women, not only as a timepiece, but as a striking fashion must-have.
This DKNY ladies watch is the perfect example of masculine chic. With a sleek stainless steel bracelet, diamante encrusted bezel and a clean black face, this watch is ideal for adding a touch of glamorous functionality to your look. This watch is sure to look equally as impressive with a casual daytime outfit as it would with a sophisticated evening ensemble. Enhance the bezel with a pair of your favourite diamond earrings for ultimate night-time styling.
As a self-confessed gold addict, Michael Kors has long been one of the favourite men in my life, with his desirable range of gold-plated watches. With the popularity of rose gold soaring over the last year, this rose gold plated watch from Michael Kors is a fresh alternative to the classic gold statement watch would be a welcome addition to my jewellery box. The Spring/Summer trends for 2013 are set to bring the ever popular pastel palette back to our high streets, making the perfectly pink tones of rose gold the perfect accompaniment to this delicate and feminine trend.
Monochrome is also set to be one of the feature trends for S/S’13 trends which I blogged about here, so if you’re looking for a contemporary take on the statement watch, why not opt for this Emporio Armani white ceramic watch? This fresh white bracelet combined with the subtleness of the mother of pearl face is a great and simple way to tie the monochrome flair into your wardrobe.
If you’re looking for more of an alternative to the statement watch, then unleash your wild side with this Gc rose gold-plated, snakeskin strap watch. The perfect way to add eye-catching glamour to any look.
Not forgetting the men themselves, of course, this Emporio Armani black ion-plated watch exhibits contemporary sophistication. This watch is sure to keep up with the monochrome trend as well as adding an edgy styling to both a daytime and evening look.
