Metallic over-sized watches


As you might have suspected, the over-sized watch trend, which has been around for 2-3 years, is not fading anytime soon. In fact, it just keeps on getting better!

Last summer, the ceramic white band was all the rage (see last year’s post here). This spring, I am seeing metallics – from silver to gold to rose gold.

I just got this silver Michael Kors one and am super excited at the way it looks on my arm!

 
I’m also noticing people are opting for less glitzy watches (no crystals or diamonds around the face) and pairing them with big sparkly, chunky bracelets.  It adds to the watch and creates one big statement on your arm.



What over-sized watch are you going to wear this summer?

Fashion Trend: Colorblock

The colorblock trend is hot for spring.  True to its name, colorblocking is pairing bright bold blocks of colors (two or three max) together in one outfit.  It could be an azul blue skirt with a bright pink top.  Or, more subtle, it could a completely gray dress with the bottom 5 inches of the skirt in a straight-cut navy fabric.

It's fun, (mostly) bright and, if we all partake, I think Spring will come faster!

Here are some of my picks:

Row 1: (1) Max & Cleo Strapless Colorblock Chiffon Gown, $198, Nordstrom (2) Sparkle & Fade Colorblock Top, $54, Urban Outfitters 
Row 2: (3) Petite Colorblock Top, $78, Ann Taylor 
Row 3: (4) Cynthia Steffe "Lola" Top, $145, Bloomingdale’s (5) BCBGMAXAZRIA "Roma" Colorblocked Pleated Dress, $228, Bloomingdale's 
Row 4: (6) Tri Tone Dress, $128, Jessica Simpson (7) BCBGMAXAZRIA Colorblock Asymmetrical Silk Top, $148, Nordstrom
