As most of you know that when it comes to style and brands I am always up for experimentation. So when JORD Watches contacted me to try and review their Fall 2016 collection of wood watches I immediately checked their online collection to see if there was something I would love to try specifically. The catalog was appealing and so I decided to give it a shot as a) so far I have always owned metallic strap watches. I was keen on trying the wood watch as it has a softer and cleaner finish that I thought could potentially complement a lot of my Fall outfits. b) I needed a new watch as my old MK looks a lil dull now. My JORD arrived last week in a gorgeous box and I instantly loved its color and finish. It really complements my olive complexion. It is one of those perfect neutral accessories that would complement any outfit and theme especially the Fall palette.
If you are one of those people who believe in blending your style with colors of nature, Fall is the best time to do that. From vibrant reds, pinks and oranges to brilliant golds and yellows, Fall palette is the most creative and inspiring one for any wardrobe. When it comes to putting together an ensemble, I would dot the Is and cross the Ts by ensuring all the pieces- the skirt, blouse, shoes, bag, as well as the accessories reflect the true spirit of the theme. This Jord watch perfectly blended with the theme for an outfit I put together for a semi formal event I had to go to last week.
Btw! two bold moves with this outfit- Mixing seemingly conflicting prints and pitting Yellow against Pink!
I wore this delicate Ann Taylor blouse with ruffles and paired it with this cute Ann Taylor tweed skirt. Pretty true to size, this skirt is made of thick fabric which makes it a staple for rest of the winter and the tweed texture makes things way more interesting as compared to a plain or herringbone finish. An unexpected color combo that popped up all over the NYFW was Pink and Yellow. Instead of pitting pastel with pastel, designers have given the sweet shade a refreshingly offbeat attitude with one of the brightest colors on the spectrum: yellow, in every shade under the sun. So I decided to pit my most fierce fuchsia pieces against the yellow blouse to complete the Fall palette.
My JORD Field Crest watch in Sandalwood was the perfect neutral accessory I needed to complement the look. JORD creates timepieces that are modeled after a modern lifestyle. These wood watches are handcrafted from natural woods — Maple, Bamboo, Koa, Zebrawood, Sandalwood and more. JORD uses various species of sandalwood, each chosen for their unique and varying color tones. Red, black/brown, and green sandalwood can all be seen in their line. This is a versatile timepiece I can pair with mostly all my outfits - casual/formal/anything in between.
