Women’s fashion: leather or steel watch straps?

The watch is a favorite piece of jewelry for many women. It’s a fashion accessory and a prestigious object that combines aesthetics and technical prowess. But the question many women ask themselves concerns the material of the bracelet. Should it be leather or steel? Here’s our answer in this article.

The great comeback of the steel bracelet

Women’s leather watchbands have long been a must-have, almost a compulsory choice. But for some years now, the steel bracelet has been making a comeback and has been the big trend for some time now. Steel’s return to favor reflects the evolution of fashion towards lighter, more modern and casual styles, even for the most sophisticated outfits.

It’s also a tribute to the solidity and practicality of these bracelets which, when well made, are reputed to be indestructible. Is this enough to dethrone the women’s leather watchband for good? No, because it’s all a question of taste.

Vary the materials to vary the pleasures

As a watch lover, you don’t have to limit yourself to just one type of bracelet. A woman’s leather watchband is still very much in vogue, and is recommended for certain very fine watches for which a steel bracelet may not be suitable. The leather strap is always a sign of elegance and refinement, especially as it comes in countless textures, colors and finishes. An interchangeable women’s leather strap is a way of personalizing your watch to suit your outfits and desires.

A steel bracelet, on the other hand, is best suited to more modern, sporty outfits. It goes very well with jeans and heavy canvas pants, but also with more classic outfits such as suits.

In any case, your choice should be guided solely by your tastes and preferences, as fashion today is more flexible than ever, and it will be very difficult for you to fall into bad taste by choosing either of these two bracelets.
