1 Smartwatch, 4 Ways — Fashion Tech For Wherever Fall Takes You

By Audrey Williams

There are a lot of elements that go into landing your favorite fall look: cozy layers, trending color palettes, and of course, the right accessories. The perfect accessory can be frosting on the cake that is a fabulous fall outfit, and there is perhaps no accessory quite as essential as a watch.

Thanks to the rise of fashion tech, watches can do so much more than tell time. Styles that share notifications, send event reminders, store your favorites playlists, and even track your steps can help you manage all of your fall goals. That's why, in partnership with Fossil, we've put together some autumn-approved looks featuring the Gen 4 Smartwatch to make sure you're more than prepared for what fall has in store.

From an office-friendly look that'll keep you on top of your day to a night-out look that's ideal for dinner and drinks (and even lets you leave your wallet at home!), read on to see our fall fashion tech pairings.

Festival Luxe

Festival season isn't just for summer. With block parties and neighborhood get-togethers celebrating all that fall has to offer, it's the perfect opportunity to grab your friends for a day out. Get the group chat in order and never miss a notification thanks to the rose gold tone Gen 4's Bluetooth® technology that connects to your phone. To keep with a trending fall palette, a warm ivory dress, multicolored purse, and burgundy booties, and hat complete the look.

Working It

When it comes to your favorite fall work looks, form is just as important as function. A business-ready blazer, ripped jeans, and sneakers make your commute comfy, while a convertible backpack is the ultimate companion to the sleek steel mesh Gen 4 watch. Whether you're controlling your favorite tunes, checking in on your latest emails, or getting calendar alerts for your next meeting, you'll be prepped for your day.

Street Chic

A night out for a dinner-and-drinks date is the perfect way to take advantage of fall's cooler weather. Layer a street-style worthy moto jacket over an easy slip dress, and punch up the look with accessories. Snake print boots, chic shades, and the black stainless steel mesh Gen 4 watch (with a swapped black 18mm leather watch strap) make a daring combo. No need to bring your wallet — equipped with GooglePay, your watch has got you covered for the night.

Modern Prep

If your fall schedule includes a little time out in nature for apple picking or a pumpkin patch visit, you're going to want a look that's classic and easy to move in, as well as a watch that keeps track of all that extra activity. Comfy riding boots, a striped tee, button-front skirt, an easy-to-carry crossbody build out the look, while the tortoiseshell Gen 4 tracks your steps and heart rate. The result? Your quintessential fall look — now with a very-necessary tech upgrade.
