    On The Side…
    Tiffany & Co heads in a new direction, literally with its ‘East Meets West’ timepiece. Yes it does take a little getting used too but we have fallen head over heels for its fun take on time keeping. It’s all about the side style for 2015, you heard it here first.

    Our Favourite Power Pairing…
    Rip up the rule book and introduce a matchy matchy bangle with your watch. Feeling brave? Go one step further and match the style to your belt and purse too. We spotted this trend at a Burberry preview and can’t wait to try it.
    For Summer Calvin Klein are introducing their ‘Spellbound’ collection, launching on 1st May. With soft embossed leather strap teamed with hard metals to create a elegant take on the matchy matchy trend. We like.
    Pastel Parade…
    The easiest way to introduce S/S15 hottest colour trend is to slip on a watch with a soft hued strap. From pale pink at Swarovski to icy blue shades at Guess, there’s a shade to suit everyone. This is one trend the High Street have picked up on too, we love the spearmint green strap as seen at Oasis.
    But the style it’s safe to say we are obsessed with is the new ‘Premiere Rock’ collection launching for Spring from Chanel. In limited edition colours of beige, pink and blue. We’ll take one of each, in our dreams obvs!
    Take The Stripe Route…
    Like you didn’t know but there’s a 70 revival happening. Er where have you been hiding if the answer is no. Why not follow the cool girls lead and try out a striped strap on your arm. Go for one like this Timex ‘Varsity Row’ style with its thick stripe to echo a more retro style, it fits right in with our wardrobe of flares and peasant blouses FYI. Try Daniel Wellington and Larsson & Jennings for other stylish options on the trend.
    Bright Benefits…
    Wave bye bye to the sleek minimalist designs we have spotted in recent seasons and embrace the bold and beautiful. The ‘Birds and The Bees’ collection at Burberry with their show stopping primary shades is top of our list or try the elegant designs with smattering of diamonds and bright coloured straps at Links of London.
    Team with matchy matchy friendship bracelets in bold hues to complete your look.
