Did you receive a brand new watch for Christmas? Lucky you! Now, how to style it?
Sure, you can wear it the ‘old-fashioned way’ and slip it on your wrist. Or you could try something different in 2017? Blaze a trail when it comes to style and stand out for all the right reasons.
Here’s how to wear your watch this year:

Turn It Into a Quirky Accessory
You might not own a pocket watch but you could still turn yours into one – and don’t be afraid to wear one in this way as a woman. Generally, pocket watches are worn by men but the vintage look is still very much a thing in 2017 and this is a cool, retro wear to style your favourite timepiece. Why not pop your watch in your pocket, fastened on a brooch or even around your neck on a long chain? If you do decide to try any of these ways to wear a watch, keep other accessories pretty minimal so there isn’t too much going on in your outfit.
Want to be really quirky? Wear your watch upside-down; a simple flick of the wrist will ensure you can still tell the time but it’ll add interest to your outfit and may also prove to be a fun ice-breaker at parties and work events.
Make a Statement of a Subtle Watch
Did you receive a simple, delicate-looking watch as a gift? Make a statement of it by pairing it with several bangles or small bracelets. Choose multi-coloured pieces to ensure a plain silver strap really stands out on your wrist. This look works best when your outfit is pretty understated – a black pair of trousers and a crisp, white shirt – but it can look just as good when dressed up too. You could also wear your watch over your shirt or sweater, to give added oomph to a simple-looking piece of wristwear.
Attach it to Your Handbag
As far as style statements go, this is a fairly bold one. But if wearing a watch on your wrist irritates you, why not find a way to attach it to your handbag so you can check the time at a glance while still showing your new timepiece off? Be very careful when attaching your watch to your handbag; you won’t want it to drop off onto the floor. If this doesn’t take your fancy, try the method we mentioned above: fashion your watch into a brooch and wear it on your coat.
