Thoroughly female

If you're looking for a watch that's made up of traditionally female colours, then this Coach ladies' Legacy Sports watch should more than suffice.

Featuring a gorgeous pink strap that centres on a white face and gold case, the piece is adorned with light colours that will really stand out against the darker items of clothing in your wardrobe.

Bold and brooding

In stark contrast to the piece above, this Vivienne Westwood ladies' Orb II watch features the colours of black and gold alongside the brand's iconic logo. As such, it's the ideal item to wear alongside an evening gown at the swankiest of events.

Something different

If you're looking for a luxurious, eye-catching design, then this ladies' Eclipse watch from Seksy certainly hits the nail on the head.

With a purple face that's in stark contrast to the metallic silver strap, the design and colour scheme is truly unique and interesting. Thanks to its colours and sparkly gemstones, this ladies' watch can complement your outfit for even the most formal of events.

Beautifully monotone

This ladies' Sunrise watch from Guess is rose gold from top to bottom, looking stunning in its single-coloured design.

The inclusion of Roman numerals adds an air of class, whilst this is also a piece that can be worn around the clock - at work, out for lunch, or even for drinks in the evening; it's truly versatile.

Minimalist beauty

Calvin Klein are widely regarded as trendsetters in the industry, using minimalist designs to create clean, simple styles. A frontrunner when it comes to pushing the limits of watch design, this ladies' Glam watch is a perfect example of what the fashion giant stands for.

As it's beautifully simple, this should reflect what you wear it with. Keeping your outfit monochrome is a good place to start - perhaps plain black or white, either with an evening gown or a t-shirt and jeans combo.

Subtle and simple

Some designer watches rely only on being simple and classic; this Swatch ladies' Rise Up watch is testament to that.

While the design is simple, the colour is eye-catching and its plastic strap enables the piece to be extremely light and comfortable to wear all day long.

Slim and trendy

While oversized watches are certainly popular, at the other end of the spectrum, thin timepieces are synonymous with femininity. This ladies' watch from Karen Millen is a perfect example of how beautiful a slim watch can look on your wrist, effortlessly flaunting elegance wherever you go.
