Watches Rule This Summer

What time is it? Time to invest in a stylish watch!

If you keep up with celebrity style like I do, then you’ve noticed how popular watches are this season. From dainty watches, including the $57,000 Jaeger-LeCoultre Art Deco watch which graced the wrist of Diane Kruger at the Cannes Film Festival, to the substantial Rolex watches that adorn Brad Pitt, watches reign as the “must have” accessory this season.

And the best part about this style sensation is that anyone, not just stars and socialites, can grab a piece of the action.

The Fossil website is a great place to begin your search. They have both men’s and women’s watches starting at just $75.00. For men they feature neon bright orange and yellow dial watches, camo dial watches, and navy dial watches. For the more traditional male, there’s silver, black, and brown as well.

For women, Fossil offers a great selection of the popular white silicone and white ceramic styles. Also hot this year is the color – rose gold, which provides an elegant touch to any outfit. More casual outfits call for fun watches such as their white, brown, or black woven styles.

Another hot company this year is Michele. According to the Michele website, they strive to keep up with cutting edge fashion, including runways trends. Some of their most unique styles include deco, urban, and the uber bright Tahitian Jelly Beans. Although more expensive than Fossil, these watches, are extremely popular with twenty and thirty-somethings.

Michael Kors watches have excited the young set as well. His glitz and tortoise and horn watches offer the “it” factor that many seek. In an interview, Kors stated that when it gets warm again, people have feelings of joy. He adds, “It’s as though people have finally shed all those heavy winter layers – both physically and mentally – and are ready to embrace life again!” That’s what Kors’ watches offer, zest for any outfit.

A visit to the Cartier website is a valuable tool to see what’s hot this year. In existence since 1904, this prestigious company continues to create watches that are actually pieces of art. The prices of styles featured on the web site range anywhere from $2,500 to $18,000 and above. These watches are definitely investment pieces!

Of course your choice of what company to purchase a watch from remains completely up to you! Dozens of companies cater to those who value time pieces, not only for keeping track of appointments, but for completing the specific look of an outfit. Whatever watch you buy, you can rest assured you’re jumping on board one of the hottest style trends this summer.

The future is something which everyone reaches at the rate of 60 minutes an hour, whatever he does, whoever he is. C.S. Lewis
