Watch trend: Go blue or go home

Watches are pretty much the best accessory a woman (or man) can wear: they're stylish, they make a statement, their versatility allows them to be dressed up or down, and most importantly, they're totally functional.

While we love our earth tones, especially when it comes to watches, we're pretty excited about one emerging trend in the accessories game: watches with blue accents. It's bold and different, but it makes a lot of sense. When can't you wear blue, really?

It's a completely new way for watches to make a statement, and it couldn't be more perfectly timed for warmer weather when we feel less inclined to wear heavy black pieces or muted colors.

You wouldn't believe the number of brands getting on board the blue train, either -- Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, Kate Spade, Tory Burch, Michele, DKNY, Karl Lagerfeld and more!

So we're thinking it's time to add a blue accented watch to our collection of accessories, and we think you should do the same. Shop our favorite styles below!
