A Worthy Investment: The Boyfriend Watch

These days, the greatest perk of having a boyfriend is having access to his wardrobe. Boyfriend jeans, boyfriend blazers, boyfriend shirts- taking the BF route is really where it’s at (when it comes to fashion at least!).

I have been on the prowl for the perfect boyfriend watch for a while now. The whole androgyny-chic trend has been going strong for a few seasons now and there is no greater way to inject your look with a bit of masculinity than with this must-have accessory. Whether you’re wearing a sweet ultra-femme frock, a sizzling cocktail dress, or jeans and a basic tee, an oversized man’s watch injects that perfect dose of irreverence that ups the cool quotient of any look.

I have searched far and wide for the best boyfriend styles out there. Read on to see what made my list!

Vintage Rolex Yellow Gold Watch, $5,625. The things I’d do to get my hands on a vintage Rolex… sigh.

forever21 actually has a beautiful gold boyfriend watch exactly like the michael kors one in the picture but the exception is that it has little faux diamonds encrusted on it.
cant beat the price either $20 buck-a-roos :)
comes in brown leather or stainless-steal look.

The Rolex has the name and the right look – but I don’t think it looks a couple thousand dollars better than the Armani watch you highlighted in the post.
