A trend over the past couple years is large watches. Really really large watches. Whether it’s a Rolex or a more affordable brand, men and women are wearing these signature time pieces to the office. Our take? Great! But consider minimizing other accessories. Men generally keep their accessories to a minimum. A tie; maybe a pocket square; maybe cuff links. For women, here’s a tip from our professional image consultant Dawn Stanyon. When accessorizing remember this rule: 3 accessories is quite subtle; 5 accessories adds visual interest; 7 or more can be overkill. Assign one point for each accessory. If the accessory is large or dominant, assign it 2 points. A big watch on a woman’s wrist would definitely be 2 points.
