WATCH IT! Trends: Spring Has Sprung Just In Time!

Flowers are in bloom, buds are bursting and the sun is shining - that's right spring has sprung! No more dreary and cold winter days, it is now time for brights, bolds and saturated colours. If you are making your spring fashion shopping list and find yourself in need of some new pieces to spruce up that wardrobe of yours, a watch is simple and easy way to do it. WATCH IT! "Canada's premier shopping destination for watches, sunglasses and service" has a slew of colourful watches to decorate your wrist so that you can keep track of the time in style.

Scroll down below and feast your eyes on the ticket to the hottest arm party this Spring as well as some stylin' outfits to go along with them.

The Bold and the Beautiful 

After the intense winter that we have had what better way to ring in the warm spring weather? These eye-catching watches that pack a punch with their intensely coloured wristbands and brightly hued faces, are not for the fashion wallflower. It would be hard to blend in the crowd while wearing watches as bold as these as they are for the risk taking, outgoing and extroverted fashionista.

The vivid rubberized Diesel Franchise Chrono Purple watch above has a sporty-chic vibe lending an air of fun to any outfit that it finds itself a part of. The bright purple Diesel Franchise Chrono Purple watch would create a striking contrast if paired with the neon yellow long-sleeved sweater,  black pleated skirt and purple quilted bag in the outfit above, which is a great way to make a statement this Spring.

This rose gold Michael Kors Lexington Petite watch with fuchsia face is every bit glamorous and eye-catching while the Roman numerals add a soft and elegant touch. This watch is the cherry on the sundae of an outfit especially if worn with a fabulous floral gown like the one above. This gown has a Springtime charm that spells glamourista, making it an ideal outfit option for a fancy gala and you are sure to feel like the belle of the ball.

Rolling in the Deep 

So long cold, frozen lakes and hello bright blue waters. Now that winter has thawed out, we can embrace the various shades of blue that are hard to miss on a beautiful Spring day, unless of course it is raining. Wet weather is a natural part of Springtime and if the grey skies ever get you down, you can brighten your mood by wearing a beautiful blue watch.

Cheery colours are synonymous with Spring but deep, rich jewel tones have their place as well, just think of lovely blue irises. This Fossil Grant Chronograph leather watch in blue is a nice way to add classic navy to your Springtime look. Navy works well with canary yellow, lavender, white and grey. If a monochromatic look is what you are after, wear the above watch with different shades of blue or rich magentas and juicy purples such as the carefree dress in the above photo. Classic navy appears fun and modern when it is paired with prints such as animal print, stripes or dots.

One of the my favourite pairings in fashion is two contrasting colours as they have a way of making a look standout and while still making an impact. Much like the bright yellow sun in a clear blue sky,  this Michael Kors Bailey Chrono Turquoise watch with its bright blue face and yellow gold hardware will keep your outfit looking cheery all day long. If you are in the mood for an outfit that allows your accessories to pop, I suggest wearing a more neutral outfit like the one above. This white blazer and black and white graphic print dress are a chic and simple way to look Spring/Summer fresh while drawing attention to your fabulous watch. The rose coloured clutch is a nice added touch to the overall look because it does not compete with the contrast coloured watch and is pretty for Spring!  

Spring Fling

Green, beautiful green. The colour of four-leaf clovers, the birthstone of May and the unavoidable hue that glows in every shade literally under the sun once Spring is in full swing. Mint does not have to be reserved to your breath freshener, with the watches below every outfit you wear can have a fresh Spring touch, all you have to do is slap one on your wrist! The soft, feminine details to these watch styles create a refined look from Spring that will complement your outfit and not compete with it.

The combination of green and pink has always reminded me of Kermit The Frog and Miss Piggy. An unlikely yet adorable pairing that can't help but keep us entertained. Wearing the above mint coloured Fossil Georgia watch with a coquettish pink dress is just the right way to capture the same unique quality that Kermit The Frog and Miss Piggy have together. To soften the strong impact that the two colours have together is to wear them with a neutral, such as a classic beige handbag and warm weather-ready nude strappy sandals. To top off the look, slide on a pair of aviator sunglasses for an edgy touch.

The thin straps, delicate details and large face on this Skagen Leather Two Hand watch collectively make a masculine and feminine statement. Soft and hard, big and small this watch provides you with the best of both worlds in your fashion look. This season's trendy floral print shorts put a whole new spin on floral prints because they still have the daintiness of floral prints and the hem line is 100% sexy. Adding a magenta quilted bag with this outfit tops of the look as it matches the shorts and counterbalances the watch.
