I have wanted a watch with a colored face for quite a while now. I love the statement watches. Well, I love watches in general. They are fashionable and functional so you can't get much better in my mind! When the wonderful people at JORD contacted me to try out one of their watches I was so excited! Of course I chose the the gorgeous Cora Turquoise Watch with a Zebrawood strap.

While I have a few statement watches, I think the reason I hadn't invested in a watch with a colored face was because I was scared I wouldn't get enough wear from it. After wearing this beauty from JORD, I was completely wrong! There are a lot of ways to wear it. Here are some of my suggestions:

1. Make a statement and use alone or in combination with accessories to contrast with other colors in your outfit. I did this here. Turquoise contrasts with coral making the watch stand out more. 
2. Pair with a similar shade. Perhaps the most obvious, but pairing a colored watch with the same or similar colors always looks great! Just careful to only pair it with one (maybe two) other clothing items so it doesn't get to matchy-matchy.
3. Wear it with a complimentary color. If you don't want a bold contrast, but don't want matchy-matchy either, pairing the watch with a complimentary color is a great option! For this watch, you could wear shades of blue or green. It still pairs well with the turquoise of the watch, but doesn't make it stand out too much.

    I am really starting to love these wooden JORD watches. I don't have a watch with a colored face for the same reasons... but, you make it sound so easy to style one. Oh, and I am in love with your printed pants!

  25. Such a pretty outfit! Love the pops of color!

  26. I've been looking at Jord watches for a while now. I love the great wood deatils it has. I didnt look at the colorful ones like yje one your wearing, but might have to look back at it. I agree, I like wearing watches too. Not so much for time purpose, I'll use my phone for that, but as an outfit item.

  41. How heavy is your watch? I love statement watches, but find so many of them to be too heavy for my wrist.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I think it's very light. I typically wear metal watches and I would say this one is maybe half the weight? It's comparable to my running watch which is light by design. The wooden strap makes a difference!

  43. What a gorgeous watch! I'm also loving your shoes.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I do love the watch but it is the relaxed pantrs I am reality after. Your cocktail ring is gorgeous also and goes so well with your manicure as does teal and coral, always.
