The Essential Wardrobe Piece You're Probably Missing

Despite being one of the most ubiquitous of accessories, finding that perfect watch that'll go with everything can feel like searching for a needle in a haystack. Kimberly Pesch of EatSleepWear has an answer: Go big.

When it comes to watches, Pesch believes timeless comes with a price. Her piece of choice: a Petite Promesse watch from luxury timepiece purveyor Baume & Mercier, featuring a diamond-set mother-of-pearl dial and wrap-around steel bracelet.

"A watch like this is a great investment and will quickly turn into one of your classic wardrobe staples," says the style chameleon. "I love adding a watch to a look to add some texture. This one is kind of amazing because it doubles as a bracelet." Below, the top fashion blogger pairs it with a long striped T-shirt dress, barely-there strappy heels, and a white cream bag for a look that transitions from on-the-clock to after-hours. Keep scrolling to get more watch styling tips from Pesch, and consider rewarding yourself at your next life milestone with an understated-yet-elegant timepiece.
