Once upon a time, in a world that was void of smartphones, we relied on a handy little accessory called the watch to tell the time. While these timepieces have become a bit overlooked as of late, we think it’s about time to bring them back.
Spring has officially sprung, which means the days of dark and drab winter accessories are a thing of the past. Thankfully, this season’s offerings are chock-full of vibrant and colorful pieces. While their function may not seem as necessary as it was before the smartphone revolution, they’re certainly still a lot of fun to wear. We rounded up some of our favorites—from neon digitals to timeless pastel leather straps—that you absolutely need this season. We also hope this will inspire you to take a moment to put your phone down and enjoy the arrival of a new season.
