But just like any other aspect of fashion, the trends for the most popular timepieces change year after year, leaving us with a new and more interesting selection of watches to choose from, in order to update and modernize our everyday look. Whether you are looking for a new statement timepiece or you simply want to add something unique to your collection, here are 5 different types of watches that are trending in 2020:

1. Retro and vintage watches

Whether it’s the newfound awareness of sustainability or the sudden comeback of old trends, vintage items are becoming increasingly popular in fashion, and the same is true for retro timepieces. The trendiest option right now seems to be rummaging through second hand shops or visiting inexpensive websites in order to find a genuine retro watch from the ‘70s or the ‘80s, to get that old craftsmanship and design, while paying a much more affordable price. However, many watch brands are hopping onto this vintage trend as well, and producing retro-inspired timepieces with a new and modern twist, making it even easier to add a chic old-timey watch to your 2020 collection.

Continuing on the theme of retro-inspired timepieces, it seems like small dress watches are going to be a big hit in 2020. While it might not come as great news for those with bigger wrists, any fan of that effortless vintage elegance is bound to fall in love with this watch style. Mostly coming in square shapes, and combined with leather straps in darker hues, small watches are ideal for stacking with thin bracelets and pairing with more impactful jewelry pieces. Although they might not be enough to make a fashion statement on their own, small dress watches can be a great addition to your watch collection, especially if you are a lover of more moderate and minimalistic styles.
