Fall'13 GUESS Watches

"A beautiful outfit without accessories is like a delicious cupcake without pretty frostings - it's never complete."
~ from my previous GUESS Bloggers Styling Event blogpost.

Rings, bangles, necklaces, earrings, bracelets..
They're all beautiful accessories that can help enhance our outfits in many ways.

But to me, the perfect accessories are those that are both stylish and practical.
Which is why in today's blogpost, I'll be sharing about the lovely Fall'13 GUESS Watches :)

GUESS Watches is a timekeeping accessory company with a focus on lifestyle driven fashion.
This season, GUESS Watches has scored the ultimate goal by teaming their trademark sporty glitz with the latest highly desired hues in a new hyperactive collection. 
As a forward-thinking fashion brand, GUESS knows how to create a design that will stay in trend for seasons to come;
a wrist accessory that will transform into a signature look that always feels new.
For the girl who covets her boyfriend's watch but wants her very own,
the new signature's silhouettes perfectly exude the design of a “his for her” timepiece by GUESS Watches.
I'm so excited to write this blogpost because I'll be showcasing 3 designs from the Fall'13 GUESS Watches collection in different looks - Workwear, Party and Casual!
And at the end of this post, there will be details on a photo contest (I know we all love contests!! :D) and sales promotions just for you!
Read on to find out more!

I chose Viva in Gold as the first design to feature because of its bold and strong appearance.
To me, this watch beams with class and style, and it is most ideal for workwear.
I paired the Viva with a Flowy Chiffon Salmon Top, Black Tailored Shorts, my favourite Black Cut Out Wedges and a Brown Reptile work bag.
The lightness of the chiffon top juxtaposed with the chunkiness and weight of my accessories gives the outfit more of an edge while still remaining classy and formal.
I'd also recommend bringing your favourite blazer out with an outfit like this
in case of emergency work meetings that are more official!

The colour gold is often used to symbolize power, strength and wisdom,
and thus this luxurious-looking watch will best suit a lady who wants to glow with that extra boost of confidence! :)
In the working world, the way you present yourself is crucial.
And donning a statement watch such as Viva will definitely help you in putting your best foot forward.

The Roman numerals on the watch face really enhances the classic vibe to this stylish piece.
But despite its general daring and loud design befitting of an independent female,
GUESS does not neglect the fact that every girl loves her blings!
Viva's bezel is encrusted with shimmering crystals, maintaining a subtle yet extremely lovely feminine touch to it.

And because Viva is fully gold, it's extremely simple to match all your outfits with this timeless colour.
No need to rack your brains worrying about colour clashes at all! :D

Loving how the gold of the accessories peeked out of my blazer here!
I've also layered Viva with a Leopard Print Chain Wrap and a GUESS Black Bracelet, both from GUESS Jewellery :)
I love to mix and match and layer my accessories because I think it's a good way to show off our personalities! :)
Viva shows a more serious side of the working adult,
but the Leopard Print Chain Wrap seems to balance it out with a tinge of fun element in this combination of accessories!
Besides, the GUESS Black Bracelet looks amazing when paired with gold
because it really complements it and makes the rich gold colour pop more!

With Viva as part of your outfits, and you'll certainly radiate confidence and leave an impression! :D

When you work hard, you've got to party harder!
The dazzling Croco Glam in Silver is undoubtedly the ideal watch for special night outs, when you just want to let your hair down and go wild!
For this look, I wore a simple Black Mesh Toga dress, Black T-bar heels and matched it with a Faux Fur Studded Clutch.
Dark colours can truly allow the brilliance of the silver Croco Glam to speak for itself.
Then again, if you're not a fan of the darker shades,
there's no need to fret because silver looks amazing with any colour! :D

Animal-inspired print is a fashion must when living the “young, sexy and adventurous” GUESS lifestyle.

From fabulous fierce leopard to seductive sultry python, animal patterns are here to stay!
This Fall GUESS Watches commands attention with its latest call to the wild timepieces.
The bracelet wows us with the addition of center links in a croco-inspired pattern;
created through the use of an avant-garde metal engraving technique that formulates a multi-dimensional reptilian pattern.
In addition, a dial of untamed croco texture and wildly placed shimmering glitz is highlighted by a bezel of crystals.
I simply adore the seamless blend of glamour and exoticness in this stunning piece.
Whether you plan to rock the dance floor at clubs, or just enjoy a few drinks at a cozy pub,
this wild yet elegant silver-polished arm candy will be the perfect accessory when you want to dress to impress!

For the party look, I paired the Croco Glam with a GUESS Chain Bracelet and a Heart Charm Bracelet from GUESS Jewellery.
The feminine silhouettes of these bracelets can help achieve a subtle and polished look,
leaving a touch of sparkle everywhere you go!
The key to layering your accessories is to match the bold jewelry (in this case, the Croco Glam watch) with simpler designs to create that wow factor.
It's no wonder why I love GUESS so much.
They always have the prettiest designs for everything!!!
Check out all the intricate details even on the accessories!
With such an abundance of sparkle and shine on you,
you're bound to turn heads and steal the show even in a room full of people!
Embrace your inner diva and feel totally fabulous with these lustrous babies!
You wonʼt fall prey to the fashion predators this season when you express your commitment to croco with GUESS Watches :D

For the casual look, I picked the Mini Phantom in a charming shade of rose gold!
This modern wrist accessory is created by fusing men's sport-watch elements with sophisticated feminine flare.
A must-have for the high-powered girl, this unique silhouette elevates the concept of menswear-inspired fashion to a stimulating new level.

I've matched the Mini Phantom with a delicate Star Charms Bracelet and a rose gold GUESS Chain Bracelet from GUESS Jewellery!
In the spirit of menswear-inspired fashion,
I've paired my Mini Phantom with a Blue Striped Cropped Shirt -
one that is stereotypically masculine in essence, but with a feminine twist to it!
It's casual, comfortable and fun which makes it extremely befitting of the Mini Phantom :D
Having a GUESS watch on really makes a world of difference to the outfit,
be it in the eyes of others or to the wearer.
When I'm wearing my GUESS watch, I realise that I go about my day feeling great about what I'm wearing,
even if it's just a really simple getup as seen,
because a good watch can easily glam up any outfit!
Inspired by carbon fiber's cross-stitched pattern, a textured top ring with numerical markers and a matching textured dial produce a modern sport feel.
Not only is the style fashionable, but the multifunction dial (noting day, date, 24-hr international time) is extremely useful for the girl that's “always-on-the-go.”

For those whose hearts are undecided about their favourite watch styles,
the Mini Phantom will certainly be your best choice.
Ranging from a powdery blush to a crisp copper, rose gold bears a versatility that allows it to be dressed-up and dressed-down without hesitation,
emitting a completely different sensation each time.

Be it casual or formal wear, the Mini Phantom will be able to help you rock each look effortlessly.
One minute you're the sweet spirited girl next door, the next you're the strong and sassy woman ready to take the world by storm!
The choice of accessories stacked with the Mini Phantom can also change the outfit direction completely.
In this case, the bracelets' warm copper tint provides a more elegant spin to the Mini Phantom :)
I'm a huge fan of experimenting with variations of chain thickness when it comes to layering my accessories :D
There are endless possibilities to the Mini Phantom
and I love how it's totally flexible and allows your own unique personality to shine through with the different combinations of accessories and outfits you choose to match it with.
It’s time to celebrate the fashionable moments together with these rose gold timepieces from GUESS Watches!

If you can't get enough of these to-die-for Fall'13 GUESS timepieces,
there's more awesomeness where that came from! :)
Show off your unique and individual approach to fashion with timepieces that are ready to make a statement!

Constructed through the use of various silhouettes and an enticing intricate rose-inspired motif, 
each new piece yields a shocking impact of sophisticated style.
Sizzling with seductive shades of deep wines and gorgeous emeralds,
a bracelet and dial of entangled roses create a mysterious sense of seduction.

As part of its fundraising efforts, GUESS Watches is launching its seventh Limited Edition “Time to Give” Watch for Fall 2013.
Infusing fashion into philanthropy, the newest watch features animal-inspired prints and “G” logos, both iconic attributes of the GUESS brand.
This is definitely the perfect accessory for any ensemble.

Can't get enough of denim jeans, denim shirts, denim vests, denim everything?
Me neither!
If you're as obsessed with denim as I am, this is definitely your thing!

Original and innovative in its design, the RIGOR collection is functionally driven and filled with fashion.
A true testament to the strength of the GUESS Watch brand, RIGOR has and continues to be a priority purchase for the GUESS guy.
