Minimalism is the new elegant – A wooden watch can make it happen for you

The new idea of what elegant is for people is deeply related to minimalism nowadays. Yes, more and more people are choosing sober motifs and plain simple clothing to look sharper, smarter and more fashionable; what used to be a trendy overlapping of clothes is now too much. From a fashion point of view and from an eco-friendly statement, fashion is making its bit to turn the world into a better place. Read on and see how a wooden watch like the ones that 7Seventh manufactures can help your minimalism and hence make you a trendy minimalist.

What is minimalism?

Minimalism saw its first moments during the post-World War Two era. It grew largely helped by the artistic and visual movements of the US-based artists in the 1960s and the 1970s. Minimalism gained huge popularity and remained intact during the fifties and the following two decades in spite of the colorful revolution of the 60s and the 70s with all the hippies wearing layers and layers of clothes and batik motifs. During the eighties, fashion got weird with all the daring fluo colors and oversized clothing, yet minimalism was always to a side, next to it, playing it cool and avoiding all types of contamination.

The nineties brought the excess of the eighties back to zero again and minimalism once again emerged from its hideout and took on the mainstream and never left it ever since. Today it is possible to see the influence of minimalism on all kinds of art forms, from clothing to furniture to art, accessories, architecture, car design and an infinite list of other things. Now, in the end of the second decade of the 21st century, it is more alive than ever.

How to wear it in style

It is a tricky style to wear successfully because you might confuse the concept of simple with that of lacking and let the elegant part of minimalism escape you. There are some very basic concepts you need to bear in mind:

  • The color palette –This is one of minimalism´s strongest points: stay within a color palette. You might alter textures (not too much) and can wear very tight, revealing clothes but as long as you keep it all within the same color palette, you will be within the boundaries of minimalism and looking good. For example, if you go monochrome with black and white or grey and white you should keep it within those colors avoiding mixing it with any other piece. Another example is color combinations like blue and white or red and black or whatever two-color combination you choose. It is possible to dress entirely on one color palette like brown or green, just stick to a palette of as-similar-as-possible colors.
  • The number of pieces – This is another major minimalism statement: you need to stick to basics and not add too many different layers to your style because it will break the concept of the outfit. For example, try to follow the rule of three “never more than three pieces on your torso”. Three pieces of clothing on your torso should do for most climates in the world.

What is the role of your watch in it?

Your role plays a central part in this story, you need to be able to accessorize yourself in such a way you won´t break the style you have created with the rest. Remember that elegance in minimalism comes from keeping it all to a minimum; the more you reduce, the more powerful it becomes. In this case, wearing a fancy, big and ostentatious watch on your left wrist will kill all the effort you have been doing before.

Keeping your watch minimalist is not an easy endeavor in a world that is ruled by shiny huge timepieces. Wooden watches can change that since they can be just as luxurious but made out of a material that will not be as fancy, heavy and shiny as most of the others in the market. A great example of this is a company called Seventh Watches that builds luxurious, handcrafted timepieces from precious woods that will enhance your outfit and maintain minimalist elegance at all times.

These are the models you should be looking at

Within the Seventh Watches catalog there are some models that take the spirit of minimalism and turn it into a timepiece. Here are the models you should be looking at:

GENESIS

The Seventh Watches Genesis is nothing but a minimalist wonder. You can feel if from its jet-black ebony strap to the carefully brushed silver machinery. This small, elegant, minimalist watch can take any outfit to the next level and works especially well with monochrome (black and white) clothing. The slightly shiny, lustered ebony strap makes it elegant for parties as well as for meetings.

SKYLAR

Similar to the Genesis, but with a mate-black strap and a silver strap-holder, the Skylar is perhaps a little less formal while being just as elegant. Wearing it on a casual outfit like a white plain t-shirt and some dark-black jeans can take that outfit to a completely different level.

KAIROS

The Kairos break the monochrome rule of the previous two watches because its strap is made of precious sandalwood. The slightly reddish color of this material suits most outfits while keeps luxury in the minimalist side at all times. Again, a slightly bright, lustered strap with a carefully polished silver timepiece in the middle makes this a luxurious item that won´t break your minimalist efforts, on the contrary, it will enhance your look.

Conclusion

Wearing a minimalism outfit today, in 2019 is being absolutely trendy. Gone are the days of the excess and the quest for more; less is the new more. In this path, wearing a wooden watch that is just as good-looking, reliable and luxurious as a metal one is a way to go. Embrace the wooden-watches revolution and minimalism on a singleans purchase.
