Streetwear can be pretty intimidating, but that doesn’t mean you can’t take elements from the edgy style and make them your own. Take, for example, a chunky watch. This functional accessory usually looks tough and masculine, but when styled correctly, it can add an interesting touch to your everyday ensembles. Still not sure how to wear it? Check out how these Pinays styled their watches:
1. Try a monochromatic outfit.
If you’re already embracing street style with open arms, then adding a chunky watch to your look won’t be a problem for you. Match your track pants with your top, then strap on a black watch. The neutral-colored accessory is easy to match to any outfit and adds a stylish touch to a monochromatic OOTD.
2. Don denim.
Denim jeans are a fashion staple, no matter the cut and silhouette. Depending on the style or the wash of the jeans, it can be edgy when worn with a feminine top, or casual when paired with a plain tee or button-down shirt. Wear acid wash jeans with a bright tank top as a throwback to '90s dressing, then add a chunky watch into the mix. It’ll lend some structure to the laidback outfit.
3. Sheer up.
Don’t know what to wear for dinner with your barkada? You can’t find anything more showstopping than a polished sheer top. Choose one with a simple pattern, then wear a corset tank top underneath. Match the look with a pair of tapered trousers, then put on gold hoop earrings and your chunky watch. Mind you, not all oversized timepieces look bulky, tough, or sporty—just because it’s chunky doesn’t mean it can’t be classy. *wink*
4. Wear something flowy.
Flowy fabrics like polyester, rayon, or viscose evoke an effortless, feminine vibe. Pieces made from these fabrics are usually fashioned to be oversized, like streetwear, but look more dressed up than casual clothing. Wear your watch with a loose-fit button-down top and a pair of denim jeans. The bulky timepiece is softened by the overall ensemble.
5. Go for a classic white tee.
Nothing screams casual more than a white tee, and you can dress it up or down with a pair of jeans, track pants, culottes, or even a skirt, then complete the look with a pair of sneakers. Accessorize your OOTD with stacked necklaces or a pair of chunky acrylic earrings, and you don’t even have to think about whether your chunky watch fits into the outfit or not—you already know it does.
No matter what outfit you go for, you can complement your look with a big, chunky watch, like the Casio Baby-G. This timepiece is the compact version of the G-SHOCK, and it has been modernized to keep track of your calories and steps. It also includes other digital watch features to help you stay on top of your day without sacrificing style for function.
