Unless you’ve been on a media-sabbatical recently, you’ve probably noticed the colour explosion that’s hit the fashion scene.

Bright hues are everywhere, from apparel and accessories, to makeup and decor. Women are walking around in a head-to-toe rainbow, all in the name of Spring’s biggest trend, colour blocking.

If so, there’s an easier way to try out this trend. Enter the coloured watch. Fun. Functional. It’s the perfect mix!
