The Quirky Summer Watches All Fashion Girls Want

Sweet, whimsical and charming, these unique timepieces dress your wrist up instantly.

Summer typically brings about more vibrant, fun-spirited ensembles. Think: punchy playsuits, embellished sandals, and an assortment of cheerful prints. It goes without saying then, that the watches we don for summer should be equally as interesting and dynamic.

From whimsical pink flamingo motifs to rainbow-hued glitter tickers, the details in these pieces infuse a sense of playfulness into watches — the accessory that’s been far too serious for far too long.

The multicoloured glitter Gucci Plexiglas watch emulates the brand’s eclectic energy and attitude.
