This week on the blog is all about the power of accessories to up your game in the style stakes; you can catch my earlier post on statement earrings here. Next up on the accessories edit is unique timepieces.
In a world where we all use our phones to tell the time, watches have become decorative accessories but as there are such stylish timepieces out there I am totally fine with that! Everyone should have a classic watch in their accessories collection. As I’ve mentioned previously, I have recently been making an effort to buy less fast fashion and work more with pieces I already have in my wardrobe. Strong accessories like a good watch or statement earrings can spice up even the simplest of looks. A smart watch can instantly lend a more polished look to any outfit and, aside from the obvious functional aspect, a good watch is a subtle way of making a style statement. It’s a way of telling the world you have places to be!
I had never thought of wearing a wooden watch until I discovered Jord Watches. To be honest, I didn’t think it was even possible to craft a beautiful watch from wood! Jord handcrafts natural luxury wooden watches from a variety of different woods from ash to sandalwood and their aesthetic is designed to fit with the modern lifestyle. An aesthetic that very much reflects my own personal style.
What I like most about Jord watches is the story behind them. All of the timepieces are designed to incorporate core brand elements of sustainability and craftsmanship. I am becoming more and more aware of the origins of my fashion so a sustainable and ethical brand like Jord really aligns with my efforts to be a more conscious consumer.
The timepiece I chose is the Frankie Dark Sandalwood & Slate watch. Grey is one of my favourite neutrals and I love the rose gold accents on the watch face, while sandalwood is one of my favourite types of wood. I love the dark and slightly masculine look of the sandalwood and how it contrasts with the femininity of the rose gold detailing. I personally prefer boyfriend style timepieces and adore the minimalistic and uncomplicated face on this watch. An added bonus is this piece is ultra lightweight and streamlined; a must for someone with super slim wrists like me!
Jord creates both women’s watches and men’s watches. Check them out if you are looking for something unique. They are real head turners!
