Q: “Is there a rule about whether your leather watch should also match your shoes?”
- Melvin, Mandaluyong
A: Strictly speaking, they don’t have to; although, for dressier occasions I personally think it just looks a little bit more put together if all your leather accessories (belt, shoes and watch) matched.
If you have either black or dark brown leather watches, I think there’s really not much to fuss about. These two colors go with pretty much anything. However, leather watches with colored straps (like blue, mustard, etc.), work better with casual clothes, where color pairing and matching aren’t as critical.
