Todays wearable technology spotlight post, will be focussing upon the more fashionable side of thangs! Being an avid fashion lover and tech enthusiast, with a background in fashion styling, I wanted to aid in the shifting of views, in regards to the slightly controversial, aesthetically appeal of the smart watch. I have always been a huge fan of Samsung, and haven’t owned any other make of smart phone, since I can remember! Recently, I upgraded to the new Samsung Galaxy S5, and with it, came with some rather insightful and intriguing apps. So, I recently decided to link up the Samsung Gear 2 and Gear fit, to the Gear Manager app. Not only did I discover a whole new love for these products and their capabilities, but I found styling up (more specifically) the Gear2, a joy!
As a result, i’d like to share a few of my more seasonal/transitional pieces, that I feel compliment this very cool piece of technology, well. Seeing as our AW14 season is fast approaching, I decided to pair together a mix of monochrome pieces, with delicate pops of block colours! Wearing a mixture of different textures and combining a variety of colour ways within our outfits, are just some of the huge trends coming from the catwalk this season! An example of where I’d wear this type of look, would be to an event, or a sophisticated lunch meeting, perhaps. Plus, with a great pair of statement heels and a more vibrant and graphic orientated bag, this look can take you from day to night! If that wasn’t enough, this technology piece gives you the added bonus of being able to take snaps, film your evening and take those all important phone calls, without having to rummage around within your Mary Poppins bag! Now, to me, that is convenience on my wrist!
With the Gear 2’s wallpaper choices, as well as the option of uploading your own personal photos to your home and lock screens, you really can aid in the accessorising of any outfit…with just a few taps! With this look, I chose to have a patterned orange front, and yes, I did consider my nail colour that day. Works well though, doesn’t it? I can understand the talk around the aesthetics of this particular smart watch, and how it may not be to everyone’s taste, yet I hope I’ve managed to display just how a few complimentary accessory and garment items, can enable a wearable tech piece, to blend well, and play a pretty vital part, within an on trend outfit choice!
It’s an exciting time for wearables, and are considered as being ‘the bridge between you and your phone’.

I will also be uploading a Youtube video soon, where I talk a lot more in depth about the functions and fashionable advantages, these wearables prove to have shown me! I’d love to know your opinions on whether you think wearables are fashionable, and if you would consider wearing them with your every day outfits?! I do hope you’ve enjoyed this post, and remember to let me know your thoughts in the comments below, I really look forward to reading them.
