When it comes to accessorizing, women have loads of options. For a man, the single most important accessory is the watch on his wrist. With spring right around the corner it’s time to refresh your look with by matching the hottest colors of the season in your dress and timepiece. Colors that are getting attention this spring are perennial classics like navy blue and charcoal gray, as well as earthy tones like burgundy and olive green.
Use your watch as a chance to make a bold statement that complements your new look. Keep your eyes peeled for unique details like graphic face designs, exhibition windows, embossed leather and, of course, a great pop of color.
The double-breasted suit is a resurgent classic, but Dolce&Gabbana adds an eye-catching twist as only they can. To begin, D&G started with a rich, Marsala hue and then set it off with contrasting gray detailing on the lapels, buttons, and pockets. A vest just barely peeking out and ultra skinny tie finish off the look. The only thing that’s missing is this limited edition, Gevril Avenue of the Americas with its burgundy, alligator-embossed band and oversized rose gold numbers on the face. This one-of-a-kind timepiece, one of only 500 in existence, is the perfect accessory to make you stand out from the crowd.
On a crisp day in early spring, a stylish summer jacket like this one from Fendi is a must. This material combines preppy plaid and a smart casual cut with shades of denim blue and a bohemian tie-dye effect for an unexpected and unique piece. When paired with a simple chino, this jacket will really pop and turn heads when you walk down the street. Pick up the shades of dusky denim throughout the jacket with the graphic planetarium pattern face of this polished and brushed stainless-steel Gattinoni Draco timepiece.
Olive green is a menswear staple thanks to its versatility and military vibe. But brands like Y Project are elevating this cool, neutral color by applying it to upscale fabrics like this tailored short paired with a motorcycle jacket-inspired topper and matching t-shirt. Keep a bit of a rugged touch to the look with the Fortis Flieger Cockpit. The nylon strap and compass-inspired face with luminous hands and hour markers make it a watch that can go from camping to cocktails.
If there’s one color that never gets old it’s blue. No matter which shade of blue you choose, you can’t go wrong with this classic color. One essential staple is a Breton stripe shirt like this one from Michael Kors. Kors pairs the top with a cuffed jean and braided leather sandals and belt for the ultimate summer look. If you prefer a clean and classic look try the limited edition, stainless steel Ferragamo Lungarno Chronograph.
Daring trendsetters are all about playing with the proportions of classic suits. The Christopher Lemaire sleek, dove gray suit is a perfect example of how a classic suit can be experimented with. Oversized jacket pockets, a sweatpant-style cuff on the pants, and a relaxed overall fit make this look casual despite being a suit. The Rudiger Stuttgart is also sophisticated with a twist thanks to an exhibition window in the face, showing off the watch’s beautiful mechanics. Break up the gray palette with a black calfskin strap with alligator pattern.
Dolce & Gabbana’s double-breasted suit has an entirely different feel in charcoal gray instead of burgundy. The classic gray pinstripe makes the suit office appropriate but the addition of a contrast lapel and patterned shirt and tie add enough style to wow on a night on the town. Add another lighthearted touch with the Gevril Columbus Circle, which incorporates the astrological symbols for days of the week as a whimsical, conversation-starting detail.
