How to Style a Wood Watch

One of my favorite accessories this fall is my Koa & Ash Wood Watch from JORD watches. This is a standout piece in my accessory collection. Today’s post is all about how to style your wood watch. This is my first wood watch I’ve ever owned. I’ve traditionally worn silver or gold metal watches both in the office and everyday life. I was so excited to receive a wood watch because it’s a timeless piece with a material twist. I had to think about how I wanted to build an outfit around this special watch and today I’m sharing two things to think about when styling your wood watch. I also am sharing with you a chance to win an e-gift card to JORD!

Next, this is How to Style Your Wood Watch
1.       Embrace Earth Tones: Play up the natural elements of your wood watch by pulling together earth tones in your outfit. Blues, greens, creams, greys, and browns will all compliment your standout accessory. Embracing an earthy palette will also add cohesiveness to your look. Your fall outfit could either be a warm or cooler aesthetic depending on which colors you decide to pull together.
Style Tip: Aside from pulling together earth tones, you can add pops of color from a fall palette to help play up your outfit and keeping together your aesthetic. Add a burgundy or rusty orange scarf to a grey or cream shirt. Or add a structured navy jacket with the sleeves slightly rolled up to show off your wood watch.

2.       Keep it Simple: When building an outfit around your wood watch. Keep in mind how busy or simple your outfit might be. Are you wearing bright colors or bold prints? If so, you’re outfit may be cute, but it will distract people from seeing your watch. If you’re looking to create a similar look, search for simple t-shirt dresses, army green or tan jackets, and your staple fall bootie to pull together. You’ll be on trend and also be wearing an outfit that helps your wood watch stand out.
Style tip: If you love bold prints and want to incorporate them into your outfit without making it too busy, think about adding the prints subtly. Pair your outfit with a printed clutch or ballet flat. There’s simple ways to still add prints without overwhelming your entire look and pulling the focus away from your watch.
