Tennis bracelets are beautiful pieces of versatile jewelry that can be easily fashioned to fit anyone’s lifestyle. Often the question is asked about how to wear a tennis bracelet with your favorite watch.  

There are various styles, whether you want to go to a formal dinner or are out at a casual evening event and want to add some pizzazz to your everyday look. We will show you what to think about when you are wearing a tennis bracelet with a wristwatch.

Let’s get started!

What Is A Tennis Bracelet?

A tennis bracelet is the perfect piece of jewelry that can go with almost anything. It is a thinner piece of jewelry made of diamonds that can be used to dress up any wardrobe. The tennis bracelet has been around for a long time and was made fashionable again in the 2000s, and now is coming back strong in 2022. 

You might be wondering where the name “tennis bracelet” came from. They got their name from the 1987 U.S. Open match when Chris Everet lost her bracelet of diamonds and paused the game to find them!  

The style where the diamonds are linked in a band has been around since the 1920s. It was then known as the eternity bracelet because of the tiny diamonds and thin metal chain continuing for infinity. But as soon as Chris Everet stunned the world by pausing one of the most important tennis matches to find her bracelet, it became known as the tennis bracelet from that day forward.

Matching Timepiece With a Tennis Bracelet

We are always trying to add some spice to our wardrobes or dress it up a bit, and that’s where the tennis bracelet and wristwatch combination works wonders. When trying to match the two, choose a watch style that matches the look and feel of your tennis bracelet.

For example, if you are going for a casual yet formal look, don’t wear an athletic Nike watch with your expensive diamond tennis bracelet. If you’re not careful, it could look a bit tacky. If you like the classy and chic look, use a fancier wristwatch to enhance the entire combination.  

Keep It Simple or Keep It Bold - Match Your Colors

We can’t forget to talk about color. Color is important when determining how to wear your watch with your tennis bracelet. You want the metal of your tennis bracelet to match the metal of your wristwatch, ideally. 

This same idea holds true with other accessories such as rings and earrings. You don’t want to wear silver rings with gold earrings. If you must mix and match metal colors, try and add some stacking bracelets with gold and silver.

Keep your metals the same if you’re set on keeping your look a little more sleek or discreet.

Create A Symmetrical Appearance

Creating a symmetrical appearance is important. For example, if you want to wear just one bracelet, don’t wear it close to your watch. Make sure you wear it on the opposite wrist. Think of your wrists as a scale. Each should be balanced with the same amount of jewelry. 

On the other hand, if you are wearing stacking bracelets, you can slip a few on the side of your wristwatch to balance out the look. Make sure the tennis bracelet isn’t too loose and fits comfortably around your wrist so that it hangs below your watch.

Match Sizes

You want to make sure that your bracelet size doesn’t overpower your wristwatch in terms of size. You are looking for a balanced look. Don’t let your wristwatch and bracelets be too similar in width, either. You are looking for the most balanced look that you can achieve. If you have a bulky watch, then you will need a wider bracelet.

Mixing and Matching Materials

If you’re worried about how two metals, such as silver and gold, might look, you can wear a watch that isn’t metallic. There are hundreds of watches with leather, fabric, and beaded straps that would work very well together with a tennis bracelet.

For example, if you matched a leather watch with a tennis bracelet with gold metal, it would work very well together to create a casual yet sophisticated look.

Consider The Size of Your Wrists

You can wear your tennis bracelet every day, but styling your tennis bracelet and watch together for everyday wear can be a bit intense. 

Wearing your tennis bracelet every day is fine, but when you style it together with your wristwatch each day, it can get a bit overdone. You will also want to consider the size of your wrists.  

For example, if you have slim features and small wrists, wearing a bulky metal watch with a tennis bracelet can create the effect of having your arm shorter than the other one.  

With this said, you should never wear more than three bracelets on one arm at one time. Therefore, knowing which side to wear your tennis bracelet on in comparison to your body is an essential factor.

Leave Enough Space

Finally, wearing small and thin bracelets is the best thing to do if you’re wearing more than one at once. The rule is to make sure the bracelets aren’t too tight while making sure to wear your watch just underneath the bracelets.

An Elegant Combination

Wearing a fashionable wristwatch in combination with a tennis bracelet has been around for a long time, and there’s so much inspiration for how to wear them together. Social media has played a significant role in this and continues to drive the jewelry fashion world.
