3 Chic Watches that Stand Out for Fall

Although the day goes by fast when you're busy, sometimes a hot watch makes the day go by even faster. A cool looking watch always catches my eye. Whether the watch is bold and chunky, or delicate and feminine, it works for me. A fashion statement that serves a purpose can never be a bad thing. It is a very justifiable purchase.

Since purple is a hit this time of year, I recommend the Elite Sport Watch from BCBG. I love the casual silicone rubber band and the explosive purple color. The simple band material offsets the square metal case and rhinestone pave dial. With the date and time glaring back at you, you will never be late or get your dates confused again.

Rose gold is the "it" trend right now and for a good reason. Rose gold is very eye catching and matches everything. But, as popular as it is in magazines and in jewelry design, many people are hesitant about embracing rose gold. This seems odd to me, so I decided to showcase a rose gold watch. The Michael Kors Glitz-Top Chronograph watch is a rose goldtone stainless steel case with a classic round bezel adorned with Swarovski crystals. Wear it by itself or with your different gold jewelry to give your wrist a sassy golden kiss. This is truly simplicity at its best...

Next up is the famous Michele watch that everyone in the world seems to have. If you don’t have this watch, then I seriously recommend you make the purchase because it's popular for a reason. You can easily switch out the band for a substitute band. The interchangeability and excellent substitute selection enables you to get creative with your everyday wear. I absolutely love the Olive Night Urban Night Explorer Collection strap. This funky multi-colored strap is whimsical and perfect for the upcoming winter. Whether you buy the watch with the strap or buy the strap if you already own this watch, you're making the right choice. With the endless strap options and ever-evolving styles, this watch will never bore you. You will never regret the initial purchase.
