In the summer heat, there’s something lovely about wearing things that are not tight and constricting – breezy sundresses and gauzy white garments are perennially popular for practical reasons. This season, the same philosophy may be part of the inspiration for a trendy way to wear wristwatches.
Rather than strapping or clasping the wristwatch so that it fits close to the wrist, this trend has the watch worn loose enough to slide up the arm or to fall over the top portion of the hand.
The watch itself may be either a woman’s or oversized man’s style, although the length of the watch strap or bracelet will determine whether the watch can be worn in this fashion. Indeed, it is conceivable that some of this oversized look stems purely from the practical use of what is available by photo shoot stylists. When the watch band happens to be much larger than a model’s wrist, voila!
