Hollister - Different Styles of Womens Watches Its rare to find a woman who doesnt love jewelry. After all, its a generally accepted maxim that diamonds are a girls best friend, and that the way to a girls heart is paved with Tiffany boxes. We love necklaces and chokers, dangly earrings and pearl studs, diamond and ruby rings, delicate tennis bracelets and clunky, chunky bangles. One piece of classic jewelry that we often overlook, though, is the timeless wrist watch. Ever since the Swatch craze died down, you just dont hear much about womens watches in the fashion press. And thats a downright shame because womens fashion watches are among the best, most utilitarian and most stylish jewelry pieces you can buy. From timeless classic wristwatches to fun and funky watches with interchangeable straps, womens watches should take the forefront of the fashion jewelry stage. What should you be looking for in womens watches? Heres a handful of the fashion and styles that youll be seeing in the stores and on womens wrists this year.
Fun and Funky Watch Wardrobes Why give one watch when you can give a whole wardrobe of watches? The concept dates back to the 1970s, when Timex came out with a single watch paired with seven different colored straps that could be swapped out a different watch for every day. Invicta has carried this tradition through in several of its womens watch lines. The Classique from Invicta includes seven interchangeable straps in Hot Pink, Pearl White, Lime green, Orange, Golden Yellow, Black and Sky Blue and a watch with a mother of pearl face and sixteen diamond accents. The Invicta Baby Lupah features seven straps in the same colors with crocodile embossing, and the Baby Lupah timepiece, a classic timepiece based on the Invicta Lupah watch for men.
