5 women’s statement watches for every budget
Who says fashion can’t also have function? One of the most practical ways to make a big style impact is with a statement watch.
Here are some of our favorite ways to wear a watch as a fashionable accessory this season.
1. Elegant, classic and feminine.
A statement needn’t be bold. This rose-gold watch from Fossil makes a soft statement that’s perfect for summer. The style is timeless, and the tiny rhinestone embellishments around the face make this watch appropriate for an elegant occasion.

2. Vintage, thin “boyfriend” watches.
You’ve heard of “boyfriend jeans,” looser fitting denim that is timeless and comfy. How about a “boyfriend watch?” These watches have bold, circular faces and thin straps, so they look old-school. Try this green-band watch at Fossil, with an almost military feel. Jacqueline Three-Hand Date Leather Watch, $135 (plus 4% Cash Back), Fossil.com
3. Mixed metal minimalist.
If you are looking to make a big statement with few details, a sleek, minimalist watch is for you. This mixed metal (gold and silver colored) watch at Charlotte Russe is minimal on the pocketbook, too, at under $20. Mixed Metal Cut-Out Watch, $19.99, CharlotteRusse.com
