2018 Spring Trend: Wooden Watches

2018 Spring Trend: Wooden Watches

This is a paid partnership with JORD Watches. All opinions are my own!


My favorite season has finally arrived! Spring has always had some of my favorite trends, which is why it's no surprise I am in love with this 2018 trend: wooden watches. They are simple, beautiful, and the perfect accessory for any outfit. 

style meets minimalism

I've never been a big accessory girl, but, when I do spice up my looks, I prefer to keep it simple. In the past, I never found a watch that was perfect for work and date night. This meant I only wore my Apple Watch when I was dressed casually and always had to result to a pair of earrings or a necklace to add some sparkle. When I found JORD, I was thrilled to find a large collection of watches that would fit my personal style: elegant, relaxed, and chic.

Meet JORD watches, a local STL company that offers an array of wooden watches for women and men. They offer custom sizing and custom engraving, helping make your watch the perfectly personalized accessory (hint: also a great gift idea!). They offer a huge array of watches from different collections, but my personal favorite is the Frankie Purpleheart and Plum watch.

While a nice neutral toned watch offers a clean and classic look, I wanted to take it a step further. When I came across this watch, I knew this was my answer. The plum and pink toned watch offers a subtle pop of color that blends perfectly with any color palette. Plus, if you've been following me for a while, you know I have a soft spot for anything with a pink tone! 

how to style it

Unique watches provide a great touch to a lot of outfits. Here are three different ways I love to style my watch.

keepin' it casual

Casual wear in the Spring just might be my favorite. I always reach for my favorite pair of denim and a cute white top. There are so many different white tops that are in right now: eyelet, lace, and, of course, a basic white tee! If it's still a little too chilly, you can pair the outfit with your favorite cardigan. 

The neutral color palette is a perfect match for the Frankie Purpleheart and Plum watch since it allows the subtle pop of color to make a statement, without going over the top! Depending on how the sunshine reflects off your watch, you'll get different tones of plum and pink. How beautiful!?

business ready

When you're checking on the time while heading to your next meeting, you want to look stylish and on your game. I have always been a lover of a floral blouse/top paired with a skirt or white denim. You can add a pair of nude or black pumps to add a little height. Whether your top has hues of blue or red, the watch will blend with the color palette. The floral design is also a great way to compliment the watch.

feelin' fancy

Does anybody else have that moment when they're getting ready for a date night or special event and you look at the time and think "yikes!". We've all been there. Good news is this time, you'll look at the time in style. I'm daydreaming about all of the springtime dresses that I can style with my watch. Perfect for date night, wedding guest attire, mother's day brunch, and so much more.

Because I love this collection (+ y’all)...
