Under the spotlight 10 Michael Kors watches for every occasion

First published: 24-12-2015

The Michael Kors label is one of luxury - there's an aura around every piece they create that just sings quality and attention to detail. With a range of stunning watches on offer, everyone can take a bite of this American pie.

With eye-catching designs in an array of colours both bold and subtle, which of their timepieces are well-suited to certain occasions? Not to worry, we'll help you to match the watch to the event, so you'll ace the dress code every single time.

Christmas and New Year's

It's a time for family and jollity, and even if your Christmas spirit isn't right up there with Santa's, you'll probably still be heading to a party or two.

No matter whether you're decked in Christmassy socks and jumpers, or you'd prefer to opt for something smarter, you'll need a watch that can stand up to the rigours of the festive dress code.

Michael Kors Parker watch

Gold is a classic Christmas colour, and this Michael Kors Parker chronograph watch allows you to sparkle with seasonal spirit! With jewels all around the face, there's an extra bit of festive shine added in for good measure, too.

Black tie

These formal events focus on two main colours: black and white. So, while you can't deviate too far from these staples, you can push the boat out a little by opting for a silver or a subtle gold timepiece if you'd like. It adds a bit of individuality to your wrist wear, which works alongside your stunning outfit for the evening.

However, we'd recommend wearing a timepiece that is going to complement your outfit better than any other - something beautifully black.

Michael Kors Mens runway watch

Teaming up perfectly with a bowtie and matching pocket square, this men's runway chronograph watch is suave, being James Bond-esque in appearance.

If you've got your heart set on embodying 007 for the evening, there are more timepieces that are capable of creating the secret agent look, too.


As the weekend rolls around, you've got just as much reason to glam up your wrist as you do in the week. So even if you haven't got much planned, go nuts and give your favourite watch some wear time.

No matter whether you're off out for a few casual drinks with workmates, or you're out to lunch with the family on a weekend, you need a timepiece that's versatile enough to work at every event.

Michael Kors ladies runway watch

Michael Kors' slim runway watch is a stylish little number, with subtle colours that are capable of teaming up with many of the casual items of clothing you have in your wardrobe.

The design of the watch face is simple but elegant, and the combination of these two factors means that it's a versatile watch - equally at home on both the high street and the sofa!

A watch for work

No matter what kind of job you have, we all need a timepiece that matches the workplace attire.

While respecting the dress code, it's still important to choose a watch that represents your individual style, even if the piece might be hidden behind a computer screen for a few hours each day.

After all, there are always meetings and work lunches that allow you to really get your beautiful watch out in the open to catch a few co-workers' eyes.

Michael Kors Lexington mens watch

With a classic silver strap and a bold blue face, the Lexington chronograph watch steers slightly away from the traditional solid gold or silver timepiece staples, and allows you to inject a bit of personality into your office wrist wear.

Match it with a similarly coloured tie to bring the outfit together as a whole, while a gorgeous pair of silver cufflinks should slide into the mix quite nicely as well.

A watch fit for a wedding

Deciding what to wear for a wedding can be tricky. You'll want to look great in all the inevitable photos that will be taken, but you won't want to upstage the bride and groom.

For that reason, dressing in white is a no-no, while black is often a little sombre, so as long as you opt for almost any other colour, then you're onto a winner.

Michael Kors ladies chronograph watch

The beautiful chained strap on this ladies' chronograph watch is ideal for a special occasion such as a wedding, as it deserves a greater platform than simply a day in the office.

As it's gorgeous yet quite understated, it's also capable of teaming up with a variety of different outfits, so you can always adapt it to suit the colour scheme.

Holiday timekeeping

No matter whether you're off on an adventure holiday or just heading to the beach, a watch can accompany you on both daytrips and meals out. But as you may well have to pack light, you'll have to opt for a piece that's versatile enough to work with every outfit you've brought.

Michael Kors mens Chronograph watch

Featuring a classy brown leather strap, with a contrasting silver and black face, this men's chronograph watch will look equally as good with shorts and t-shirts as it does with smart trousers and a blazer.

There really is a Michael Kors watch to suit every occasion, being a range that's filled with a variety of styles that cover several colours and materials. Follow our tips here and you'll always look smart for work and amazing at a wedding, while making sure that you have a style set aside for the working week, too.
