With men’s watches often stealing the limelight, watches for women can sometimes take a backseat for women. Some women mistake the significance a timepiece has to play in fashion, often clubbing it in the same category as jewellery. Watches, much like handbags and shoes, are true investment pieces that will elevate even the simplest ensemble.
But when picking out a watch for yourself, one must keep a few factors in mind. On occasions when you want to make a fashion statement with your watch, it is best to keep the glitzy and bold colours to only your wrist. On the other hand, when you wish to pull off a formal look, it would be ideal to tone it down, avoiding watches that are overtly flashy or blingy. Here’s looking at the best watches for women to suit every personality and occasion. You can have a diverse collection at your disposal to help build your wardrobe — something timeless like a Cartier watch, or something making a little bit more of a statement like a Bvlgari timepiece.
