Ask Belle: Watch Basics in the $250 Range
Sep 15, 2015
What do you know about watches? I want to find something in the $300 price range that is stylish but still classic. Can you make a few suggestions, maybe in more than one style? I haven’t worn a watch since the Sanrio one my Gamma gave me in 2nd grade.
I love your blog! Anja
Watches are making a comeback as people tire of using their cell phones as a time piece. A nice watch also gives you both form and function, and who doesn’t want to wear more jewelry? Let’s see what we can find in your price range.
Silver-Tone Watches. I know some of you ladies love silver tone jewelry, so I thought I would throw up a couple of stainless steel and stainless-look watches. This Skagen watch has a cool, modern look with an interesting design. This Michael Kors mid-size watch has a good look. I also like the look of this classic Tommy Hilfiger watch for $148.
Chunky Gold Watches have been on trend for a few years. If you want one that feels substantial, you want a Nixon watch. For the price, they feel and look great.
Leather Strap Watches. I don’t like to wear something heavy on my wrist, so a leather strap watch is perfect for me. I own a leather strap Philip Stein that I picked up on closeout a few years ago. And luckily, they’re coming back into style.
I adore this all navy watch with rose gold accents. It’s very cool. I also like this DKNY watch that mixes soft grey and rose gold. This double wrap watch from Marc Jacobs is another fun choice. And don’t miss the unique shape of this small Fossil watch in tan leather.
Black Watches are a sleek, slightly masculine choice. I like the unexpected simplicity of the all black. Other all black choices include this Nixon watch and this DKNY watch with a metal band is truly cool.
