All black and all white outfits work as great canvases to add a burst of colour. Try adding a rose gold watch against an all black outfit – the result will look thought-out and the watch will really make an impact.

To make sure all of the focus is on the colour and the design of the watch, choose a top with a shorter sleeve this spring to help emphasis the wrist, or roll up a baggy sleeve for a casual look.

Another great way to add colour is by adding other accessories to complete your look. For example, these stacking bracelets from The Jewel Hut’s ChloBo collection is a great way to incorporate similar hues and help the colour palette really shine through.
