what do you wear to the beach

Blackthorn Beach Day

- Even though they live right on the beach, someone yelling “Beach Day” still gets everyone excited, as they don’t often go as a whole family 

- As soon as the words are sounded everyone runs around frantically “What do you mean you can’t find the sandcastle tools?” “Where are our towels?”

-Helen stays calm and efficient, but it’s hard to keep the smile off her face as she sees how excited everyone is 

 - Tavvy sits on the ground outside in his bathers just repeating “beach beach beach” over and over again while bouncing up and down

 - Livvy is squealing with excitement and lugging tons of equipment into the pile in the garden, with Ty helping her 

-He’s not the biggest fan of the beach, but anything to make Livvy happy 

-Dru’s not sure about wearing bathers, but Livvy knows how to pick exactly the right swimsuit and words to make Dru feel better 

-They hug, and when Dru comes down everyone tells her how pretty she looks (she’s gorgeous, but what’s even better is the confidence and the smile on her face) 

-Julian oversees the whole thing (it’s a little hard with everyone rushing around like whirlwinds) but someone has to get rid of the useless stuff “I mean, do we really need an ice cream maker?" 

-Ty knows they do need all this stuff, after all, it’s better to be prepared than unprepared, and Mark nods in agreement (he doesn’t mind how they convince Julian as long as he gets his ice cream) 

-Julian grumbles but agrees, resigning himself to the fact that he’s going to be the one carrying everything down but how can he say no? 

-When they finally get to the beach, everything is dumped on the sand and it’s a race to the water 

-Livvy gets in first, she can sprint like anything, and she jumps in with a huge yell of joy and a splash 

-Matching her in energy is Tavvy, bounding along, and running away from Julian who holds various safety equipment in his hands

-Julian catches Tavvy and throws him up in the air, then sets him in a life jacket. Tavvy squirms the whole time and the second he’s out of Julian’s arms he’s in the water, laughing and giggling 

-Helen and Dru arrive at a more leisurely pace, setting down their towels neatly before running off to join the others in the water 

-Mark is happy to do whatever, he’s just happy he’s here with his family, and lets Ty take him over to the rock pools where they coo and examine different creatures 

-Eventually Mark slips while walking on some rocks and falls in the water

-He’s not hurt, he just rubs his head sheepishly while everyone laughs

-Then he’s the annoying one swimming underwater and grabbing ankles to scare people. He gives Helen a fright and she splashes him in his face as soon as he surfaces 

-Then it’s a full out war, splashing and shoving each other into the next wave. Everyone is laughing and smiling, and Julian joins them 

-He’s a terrific swimmer really, with gorgeous strokes, but sometimes a wave hits him unprepared and he exaggerates shaking his head to make Tavvy giggle 

-Livvy is the best damn surfer around, body or board, and everyone cheers each time she does something, even if she completely wipes out (she goes down with a spectacular battle cry) 

-It’s Dru who suggests the idea first and then forget about her boards, Livvy is over there instantly, hopping on Mark’s shoulders 

-He staggers a bit and threatens to tip her off, much to her squeals of joy 

-Julian carries Dru, and Helen Tavvy, and the the competition has started for who can knock each other off first 

-Mark and Livvy, Julian and Dru are merciless with each other, but gentle when Tavvy and Helen walk over, tickling their younger brother as he yells 

-Livvy and Mark take advantage of Julian and Dru’s distraction and with a push, knock them over into the water

-They come up spluttering, and laughing with good humour 

- At last Helen needs a break, she goes and lies on her towel as Tavvy builds sand castles 

-Ty comes over to help, and it ends up looking so magnificent they’re loathe to destroy it 

-It’s beautiful, structurally sound, with different decorations on it, and even little sticks and feathers to represent each of them in the family 

-That doesn’t stop Livvy, Dru and Tavvy jumping on it when they leave

-Ty shrugs, it was always going to be impermanent, and he’d rather see his siblings happy 

-Everyone stretches out on the sand for a few minutes, soaking in the sun and the atmosphere, exhausted but joyful at the same time 

-Mark jumps in the water one more time before they leave, after everything is packed up and he’s got his clothes on, and then proceeds to go hug everyone in his now soggy clothes  much to their protests "Mark! I just got dry!” “Mark! Are you in your clothes?” “Angel save me from silly brothers" 

-When they arrive back everyone collapses and the mood is too good for Julian to protest about the amount of sand being trodded into their house (next morning is a completely different issue)

“Prom was invented just to make girls starve so they can fit in a dress and compete over a stupid title.”

“Uh –” Derek blinks, eyes his sister dubiously, “I’m not a girl?”

Cora huffs. “Whatever.”

In the kitchen Laura bursts out laughing. “Don’t worry.” She yells. “Cora is just jealous she will have to wait five years to go to her own prom.”

“I’m not going!” Cora yells back. “Prom is stupid, I don’t even know why you’re going,” she tells Derek, “it’s not like you know how to have fun.”

Derek raises an eyebrow while Laura just laughs harder. “Oh my god.” Their older sister says. “I stay away for six months and Cora turns into a sassy queen.” She walks into the living room, pretends to wipe at her eyes. “I’m so proud.”

“You two are ridiculous.” Derek says, turning around. “And I’m just going because Erica promised to pay me. With ice cream.” Then he gives Cora a wicked smile. “That I’m not going to share with either of you.”

“You are the worst brother!” Cora yells as he begins to climb the stairs. “And I hope you fall on your ass while trying to dance!”

“Can’t hear you!” Derek’s cell begins to ring. “Too busy getting ready to prom!”

Laura lets out a high-pitched laughter. “I love you two so much.”

Derek shakes his head fondly, closes his bedroom door behind himself just as Cora tells Laura to shut up. “Hey.” He answers the phone, collapsing on his bed. “What’s up?”

“Yo,” Stiles answers, “whatcha doing?”

“Listening to my sisters fight.” He says, snorting when he hears his dad start complaining about all the yelling and ‘no, Cora, I’m not letting you go to prom, you’re thirteen!’. “I’m gonna have to check the trunk of my car tomorrow night.”

Stiles laughs. “She’s not that good.”

“If you keep teaching her, she will be.” Derek blurts out, curses himself mentally when he realizes it came out harsher than he intended.

It’s just – sometimes he can’t help it. He’s known Stiles since they were four, Cora wasn’t even born then, but one day she turned eleven and Stiles became her new favorite person. Stiles couldn’t find it funnier and took Cora as his little apprentice. He even taught her how to cheat on Mario Kart.

He’s never taught Derek that.

Derek rolls his eyes, thinks about his little sister still downstairs pouting and trying to convince their dad that she’s old enough to go out. He shouldn’t be jealous of her, but the thing is – he grew up with two sisters, he knows how to share toys and food, but he doesn’t know how to share Stiles.

Because Stiles is his.

HEY!!! This is a reminder that if you’ve got acne on your body, you’re 167% still entitled to wear a bathing suit this summer. Scoop back, bikini, topless, trunks. The whole lot of it. I promise you that no one notices your flaws the way you do. I promise that you look incredible and you own your beach attire completely.

You deserve to be comfortable in the heat, no matter what. Your acne is DEFINITELY not as bad as you think and it’s definitely not as obvious as you think. People notice their own flaws first so your eyes just zoom in on them. That’s not how other people see you.

the invisible perimeters of girlhood

When I was ten years old, I was with my mother at a department store shopping for bathing suits. We were in the fitting room and I was trying on something that I guess was a little more revealing–maybe a bikini, make backless, I don’t remember exactly. I liked the way it looked and I was leaning towards getting it, and then my mother said that I should know that if I wore something like that on the beach, some men might make inappropriate comments. She said it was alright if I still wanted to wear it but she thought I should know before I decided that if I wore this bathing suit men might decide it was okay to make loud sexual comments to a ten-year-old girl. My mom was not trying to make me feel bad or pressure me one way or another but she knew I was sensitive, she knew I absolutely hated anyone making any comments on my body, she knew I would feel very violated if this were to happen, and she felt as a mother that if I were to run this risk, I should do so knowingly. That, now that I was old enough to have men possibly sexually harrass me on a beach, I was old enough to weigh the pros and cons of wearing what I liked vs. the possible chance of my bathing suit attracting the sort of men who yelled sexual comments at ten-year-old girls.

I decided not to get the bathing suit.

One thing I want men to understand about girlhood and womanhood is that our lives, our female lives, are like a map surrounded by borders which aren’t immediately visible to girls when they are children. But as you grow up, you experience these universal moments in girlhood at which you catch a sudden glimpse of these borders. Beyond them is terra incognita, no-woman’s land. Here be dragons.  You are technically free to cross these borders but adults, both male and female, make damn certain you see all the signs warning you that to cross is to accept that you very well might meet a dragon and whatever it does to you is your own liability because you saw the signs. And, paradoxically, these borders are invisible to exactly the same men who create them. And these men–they aren’t just the ones who sexually harrass children on beaches for the bathing suits they wear. They are every man who says, “Well, you knew that was a bad neighbourhood,” or “What were you wearing?” or “I know sexism is shitty, but some man catcalled me today and I felt so validated in my gender!”

As girls, in our childhoods, we learn that the sidewalk ends right where you fail to remove all body hair or when you walk alone at night or when you post a photo—any photo—of yourself online, no matter what you’re wearing. This is what we learn as children.

I am interested to hear some of your stories about moments in your childhood/teen years when you discovered the “edges” of girlhood and the borders around it.

- Jason never really understood the point of marriage, except for maybe some benefits in filing your taxes

- And then he meets you, and it all just clicks

- He loves you so much, and he wants to spend all of his time with you

- He wants to come home to see your sleeping form in his bed

- He wants to wake up to your kiss

- He wants to spend late Sunday morning afternoons in a bubble bath with you

- He doesn’t want for you to ever go back home

- He wants to be your home

- Because that’s what it means to be married

- So when you’re just waking up, still half asleep, he slips a simple ring onto your finger

- “Be mine, and stay by my side forever, and I’ll make you happier than anyone else in the world.”

- You smile as tears slide down your face.

- “I’m already all yours”

- You have a simple courtroom wedding, and you both decide you’d rather use the money for your honeymoon and house than feed a million people you don’t really care about

- Bruce hears about the wedding and throws you a small reception with the family and some close friends

- “You really didn’t have to do this, thank you so much.”

- “You don’t have to thank him (Y/N), we never asked for any of this” Jason’s still thankful regardless, he kind of wanted to have a big fancy wedding and see you all dressed up

- Bruce pays for the honeymoon and gives you both some very nice wedding gifts as well as a hefty check

- “I just want my kids to have fun when they start their life together.”

- You give him a big hug

- “Thanks Dad”

- You go somewhere hot for your honeymoon, like Mexico or maybe the Caribbean

- “Jason I just changed!” You practically yell as a sigh escapes you as his hands wander over your body.

- “Yeah” he smirks “another outfit for me to give you an orgasm in”

- The simplest things turn him on, seeing you in a swim suit, rubbing sunscreen onto your back, waking up to see you wearing one of his shirts

- It’s all just bad for his health

- He probably writes his initials in the sunscreen on your back tbh

- So when when it tans everyone knows who you belong to

- “Hey you said in sickness and in health babe”

- “What does that have to do with anything?”

- “Mental health, is still about health”

- “…… why are you like this”

- If you like wearing a swimsuit with strings, like a string bikini, and you fall asleep on the beach, Jason will untie all the strings until you wake up

- “Jason what are you doing?”

- “Shhh”

- Then when you’re finally awake he’ll grope you, and kiss all along the curve of your body

- “Jason, stop teasing me…”

- This eventually leads to sleepy beach sex

- You go parasailing together, Jason sails the boat.

- “I didn’t know you could sail Jason!” You shout

- “Oh yeah I can do all sorts of stuff?”

- He actually doesn’t know how to “technically” sail, but he’s doing okay so far

- Jason almost crashes the boat

- When you come back you sub let your place and sit on the floor of Jason’s apartment surrounded by papers

- A stack of boxes, all with the stuff from your apartment behind you

- “Do this is how much we got from everyone at the wedding, this is all the stuff we got from the wedding, and this is how much we both make a month”

- “Well that doesn’t look to bad.” Jason says

- “This is how much a motgatge payment on a house would cost a month”

- “Oh”

- You both decide to sublet your places and get a new, slightly bigger apartment somewhere nicer

- All the bat boys find out and start sending you both listings for available places

- “I know it’s a little pricey, but it’s actually a really nice lake house, with a loan I don’t think it’s a bad deal”

- Well they all come to YOU with ideas

- “Thanks for the suggestion Dick, but we can’t afford a house right now, we’re just looking for an apartment”

- World tickles down the grapevine and eventually Bruce hears about it

- “I should have bought them a house,” he pauses and looks at Alfred “I shouldn’t have bought them the China set and the cuisineart collection I should have bought them a house”

- Alfred just rolls his eyes

- “Master Bruce, you gave them a check for fifteen thousand dollars, I believe they could have made a down payment with that.”

- And it’s true you could have

- But Jason doesn’t want the house you start your life in to be built from Bruce’s money

- For a while you both left the envelope untouched

- Eventually you cashed it and put all the money in a separate bank account

- When Bruce finds out, he and Jason have a little talk

- “Don’t take it the wrong way Bruce, I appreciate the support.”

- Bruce doesn’t understand

- “I want to build that house for her, with the money I earned, and with my own hands.”

- And somehow, Bruce has never felt prouder of Jason.

- “I raised you pretty well”
- Jason snorts

- “If that’s what you want to call what you did”

- Just a relationship built on mutual respect for each other

They look like they’re wearing fucking… swimming shorts. With belts on. And tuxedoes. And neat shoes. They look like they’re ready to either go to a semi formal party, or go to the beach but also a job interview, or they’re ready to go to a strip club and be strippers.

No. You know what? They look like they had to do it to ‘em.

anonymous asked:

Oh Are request open again!? If they are could I request RFA+V and Unkown on how they would react to MC in a Bikini while they are at the beach. Seriously love your writing!

Aw thank you ^-^. And yes requests are open! I wrote this with the idea in mind that the RFA is having a nice day at the beach. Just as a note, I went about this differently than I usually would. I pretty much wrote it the same except for V and Unknown where they’re not together just have the feels for each other.


Yoosung

  • it was the first time in a while since Yoosung went to the beach!
  • and he was not only glad he could go with the RFA, but you as well
    • he even brought a blanket to lay on with you
    • and lunch for just you two
    • and one for Seven because he asked
  • while you were changing into your bathing suit, Yoosung was with Seven out in the ocean looking for seashells
  • it was a few minutes when you had came out seeing your nugget preoccupied with finding shells on the shore
  • Zen was the first to notice you and your red bikini with white polka dots and frills
    • ☆⌒(≧▽ ° )
  • so you talk to him for a bit
  • then you suddenly feel an arm around your shoulder
  • and Yoosung is just giving Zen this look like hahaha stop looking at her or I’ll pluck out those pretty eyes of yours (⊙ ‿ ⊙)
  • when Zen backs off and leaves you two alone
  • Yoosung is proud of himself for a second but IMMEDIATELY takes his arm off of you 
  • when you look at him all confused his face is red as a tomato
  • “I-I’m sorry MC for touching you! I-I di-didn’t realize it until after he left. You just–”
  • boy is a big bag of sweetness
  • precious bean
  • after managing to calm down a bit he just holds your hand and silently gives you compliments
  • when no one was looking he kisses your shoulder  (°ㅂ°* )

Jaehee

  • this gelato had a lot of work to do before the trip so she planned everything out
  • both of you didn’t have anytime changing before hand so you decided to change at the beach
  • she didn’t get a chance to see the swimsuit you packed
    • even though she wanted to see it ;^;
  • once Jaehee was done changing, she came out of the bathroom in a blue and white long sleeve and blue shorts
    • she preferred more modest swimwear
  • you were having difficulties getting yours on and insisted you would be fine
  • so she waited outside for you because she is sweet and amazing Jaehee
  • to pass the time she was on her phone to answer a few messages from the rest of the RFA
  • “Alright, how do I look?”
  • Jaehee looks away from her phone and sees you in her high-waisted black shorts and red top
  • w(°o°)w
  • it kind of startled her a bit, almost dropped her phone
  • “You look cute.”
  • (ノ*°▽°*) you just got butterflies in your stomach when she said that
  • the rest of the day you can’t stop smiling and she can’t stop smiling when she looks at you

Zen

  • when you heard you were going on a beach trip you were all hype
  • the only exception was your swimwear
  • unfortunately, you ruined your favorite bikini bottom with the sunflowers on it after your period came early that month
  • now you were shopping for a new bikini 
    • that marshmallow wanted to help you but you were insistent it would be a surprise ( ಠ ͜ʖ ಠ)
  • then came the day of the trip
  • he didn’t get to see it the morning you two left because you slipped on a hoodie and shorts
  • after getting there, setting up your blanket and parasol (because Zen’s precious porcelain skin must be protected at all costs)
  • you finally took off your hoodie and shorts when got too hot
  • and holy shit Zen couldn’t take his eyes off of the orange wrap bikini you wore
    • thAT’S SOME GOOD SHIT RIGHT THERE
    • THE BEAST IS UNLEASHED
  • you kept teasing him the more you caught him staring at you
    • obviously not ashamed to flirt with you in front of the RFA
  • he gets conflicted because he wants everyone to see you and be amazed by your beauty and majesty
    • but at the same time he doesn’t want anyone to look at you because you’re HIS boo
  • gets testy when he sees anyone even GLANCE towards you
    • dogs Jumin no matter what
    • Z: “Stop looking at her you beast!”
    • J: “I’m not even looking at her, I’m reading this book.”
    • “That’s what they ALL SAY!”

Jumin

  • this donut was looking for swimwear for you the instant an RFA beach trip was planned
  • but you were insistent you had one and it was your favorite
  • “Do I get to see it?”
  • “Of course…later.” 
  • ( ಠ ͜ʖ ಠ) you cheeky thing you
  • unfortunately, when you went to go pull it out you forgot the last time at the beach when the strap broke and your boob almost popped out
  • so you decided to go for your backup swimsuit
    • over it, you wore a zip up jacket with some shorts
  • Jumin has asked about it in the car again
  • and at that point, you were getting a little anxious being in your swimsuit so you just smiled and hoped for the best
  • you stayed in your jacket and shorts for a while, even though it was getting hot
  • you reached your breaking point and when the donut left to go to the bathroom you took off your jacket and shorts and hot damn did that feel better
  • he approached you but froze when he saw you in your black one piece with cat face on it
    • and it was strapless!!! where’s all the support go!?
  • when you see he’s there you just get embarrassed and all red
  • But he just sat next to you with a smile and said “It was worth the wait”
  • (⁄ ⁄•⁄ω⁄•⁄ ⁄) oh boy it got hotter in here
  • if anyone even looks your way, he just shoots them this death glare
  • this donut just hangs around you the rest of the day looking at you so adoringly ^^

707

    • sky blue with pink flamingos on it ^^
    • perfect for the oddballs you two are
  • it was practically all you two talked about on the messenger
  • Saeren had to mute his damn phone
  • when you two got there he was sure floored by how stunning you looked in it
    • wooooooooooo~
  • would put his hand or arm on you any chance he got
    • “Oh no MC you have some sand on your shoulder, let me get that for you”
  • while you were sitting in the sand chatting with Yoosung and Jaehee, he was trying to toss sea shells into your top
    • and after much trial and error, he managed to get one in
    • you were annoyed at first but damn he got it straight in there, you had to give him credit for that
  • he didn’t really care that much when other guys were looking at you
  • because he knew he was your number one everything 
  • but let’s not talk about that
  • let’s talk about how you reacted when you saw Seven because it was the first time you saw him shirtless and YOU were floored with how ripped he was
  • he eats like 20 bags HB chips a day, where does it all go???

V 

  • a great way to spend your day was with the people you care about at a beach
  • besides, SOMEONE had to take the pictures
  • not everyone was there yet ;-;
  • you had informed the chat that you were going to be running a bit late
    • he was just a bit disappointed but he’s a sweetheart and understands that you’re human and has a schedule of your own
  • either way, V was taking pics of the RFA enjoying their time or just stills of the ocean or the sky
  • you finally arrived at the beach
    • finding a guy with ice blue hair was easy to spot
  • but he looked kind of busy taking a picture so you quietly approached and sat down on the blanket next to him
  • after he took a picture he heard you ask what he was taking a picture of
  • he got spook a bit 
  • but when he looked your way he could see through his good eye your high-waisted royal blue bikini with images of white flowers and lace accents
    • (//ω//)
  • this sweetheart tries to play it cool and chat with you
  • but you can see he has a light blush across his cheeks
    • from the heat or the conversation???
  • doesn’t want to be creepy so he makes sure to only take pictures of you if you were with one or more people
  • after hanging out in the ocean, you went back to V’s blanket where you took a nap
  • didn’t realize he had a crush on you until you were laying there beside him ^^

Unknown 

  • doesn’t want to go to the stupid RFA beach thing
    • would rather be at home napping
  • but when he hears you’re going, he SUDDENLY has a change of heart
    • S: “The beach is stupid. Why would I go just to see my skin burn to a crisp?”
    • 7: “There’s going to be ice cream!”
    • “I can have ice cream here.”
    • “MC is going to be there ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)”
    • “…do you have an extra pair of swim trunks…?”
  • ice cream AND you???
  • that sounds like a dream!
  • when the twins show up at the beach, the RFA greets him
  • why do you got to be all cute in your pink floral dress???
    • why are you even wearing a dress to a damn beach???
  • he tries to be normal by hanging in the ocean or looking for seashells with Yoosung and Seven
  • he gets tired and sits down under the umbrella with you
  • eventually you bring him back ice cream
  • while you two were enjoying your treats, he notices some ice cream got on your dress!
  • when he points it out you just kind of shrugged it off 
    • luckily you had your bathing suit underneath
  • you ask him to hold onto your ice cream then you start to take off your dress!!!
    • gumdrop is screaming internally
    • w-what is she doing omg  (* ゚ ii ゚ )
  • doesn’t calm down when now all you’re wearing is your peach bikini top and shorts
  • you take your ice cream back and continue to eat it
  • boy is having an existential crisis holy shit
    • meanwhile you were screaming inside because you never expected to do something so bold
  • you’re killing this gumdrop slowly
  • finally he kind of just mutters, “Y-you look pretty…”
  • no chance you didn’t hear that perfectly so you just say, “Thanks…you look cute today”
  • omg this got out of hand but both of you were just blushing beans the rest of the day

POET: how could you cause me this much pain? why would you want to?

BEE: I’m sorry, I’m so sorry, you just got in the way. you came too close to my jacket and I panicked. everything I touch starts to bloom: flower or bruise, it’s your choice, I can’t tell the difference. don’t you see these colors littering my body? my skin has only ever been a warning sign screaming at the world to stay away.

POET: I’ve never paid attention to things like that. I love quickly and regardless of history. I see a red flag and I rip it to shreds. I read emergency plans and I abandon their language. I pick poison berries and I swallow them whole. this is always how it’s been, I don’t know how to be any other way. safety is a word I stopped using after I found out that our last kiss was our last kiss. wait, sorry, I forgot who I was talking to. ignore that last sentence.

BEE: I…see. well, I didn’t mean to take advantage of your heart, I didn’t realize you would be so soft.

POET: they never do. have you been to the ocean?

BEE: a long time ago.

POET: when I was younger I went to a beach in south carolina, early in the morning before the seagulls began to beg for sustenance. I was alone, and I didn’t have a swimsuit but the water was so flat, and I needed to get closer to the sky, so I ran out up to my waist wearing all of my clothes and just stared at the threshold between shades of blue and shades of oblivion and I waited. I don’t know what for, but I waited, and I think that what I was waiting for must have arrived because when I finally turned back towards the sand I felt better. like I was naked except I wasn’t, I had clothes heavy with salt draped over my frame, but I could’ve been stripped to my bones for all that I knew. I was there, and I was alive, and it happened at a time when that feeling would’ve meant something.

BEE: why are you telling me this?

POET: I just wanted someone to know that I was happy, once. two lifetimes ago I let souls born of typhoon and earth see me vulnerable and thirsty and the act of doing so didn’t bring me to my knees. I was whole, once.

BEE: you’re still whole, it seems like you’ve just changed your parameters.

POET:

BEE: look, I’m sorry I stung you. I really am. I feel bad. it won’t happen again.

POET: it’s okay, I’m used to it. everything I’ve ever gotten close to has scarred me then vanished. ache and abandon, burn and bury. I could write a new testament about the memories I’ve had to plan funerals for.

BEE: maybe you should stop getting close to things.

POET: maybe I should.

IN WHICH THE POET CONVERSES WITH THE BEE THAT HAS JUST STUNG HER, by Caitlin Conlon

  • Kit: I'm thinking a summer wedding, you know on the beach right outside the Institute? Well, how do weddings work? Do they allow weddings like that but we just have to wear gold?
  • Ty: Kit... what are you talking about?
  • Kit: Wedding plans, genius.
  • Ty: We aren't even engaged.
  • Kit:
  • Kit: SO THAT'S WHAT I FORGOT TO DO LAST NIGHT!

10 Rules Of The Watch

Once upon a time..

Most men with a sense of style know not to match brown shoes with black belts, a pre-tied bowtie or pyjamas in public. I remember my father once mentioning that the only glass a man loves to keep clean is the glass of his watch. When it comes to wearing watches people don’t really care about the rules. On many occasions you will discover men wearing completely inappropriate timepieces to their outfits. Being aware about some watch etiquette will save you from embarrassment, no matter how expensive, casual or formal the occasion is.
Younger gentlemen will eventually begin to appreciate the meaning of classic—–an item that stands the test of time. At some point, these maritime gauges that so many of us wear look like what you’d expect to see on the QEII or Queen Mary or a cargo ship. The will fade out of vogue and when they do, you will be able to cover the succeeding watch with the cuff of your shirt and jacket sleeve.


1. Match your metals & colors
Try and match the metals and the colors of the watch to the rest of the outfit you have on. Note the color of your belt buckles, shoe buckles, rings, collar bars or pins, and cufflinks and choose a watch in a matching metal. Wear yellow gold with yellow gold, and don’t wear a brown band when you’re wearing a black suit. Focus specifically on the boldest parts of the watch; the color of the strap, the color of metal and even the color of the dial.

2. Don’t wear the same watch every day
Even if you only own one nice watch, you shouldn’t wear it every day for several reasons. First, if the watch is a piece that you love, giving the watch a break will make it last longer. Second, one watch is rarely suited to the variety of outfits that a man will wear in a given week. The office, the gym, sporting events, dinners out, and parties all require different clothes and hence different watches. If you wear the same watch daily, chances are that 20-30% of the time it is the wrong watch to be wearing.
Regardless of your budget, if you love wearing a watch, try building up a small collection of reputable watches that suit all the various needs you have during the week, and give you favorite piece the occasional break.

3. Skip the bling
Wearing a diamond encrusted watch is fine if you’re a music mogul, but it has no place in the wardrobe of a well-dressed gentleman. Like an oversized watch, flashy diamonds and jewels are simply a cry for attention. They will distract from the rest of your outfit by drawing all the attention to one point. Most people will be wondering if it’s real, rather than what kind of watch it is. Diamonds and jewels also have the effect of making men’s watches appear more feminine. Unless you’re trying to be the next Eminem, skip the diamonds – with one exception. Some dress watches use very fine diamonds or other stones to accent small details, such as the rim of the dial or the numbers on the face. If the stones are subtle and enhance the overall features of the watch without being ostentatious, then they can find a place in a gentleman’s watch collection. Just remember to wear them in appropriate settings and don’t buy sporting watches, as diamonds are not suited to more casual watches. Finally, it should go without saying that you should never buy a watch with fake stones. If you can’t afford the real thing, skip stones altogether, as they will only cheapen the overall look and make it painfully obvious that you seek the kind of attention diamonds can bring.

4. Wear your watch on the wrist that suits you
The old rule of thumb was to always wear a watch on the non-dominant wrist. The reasoning was that it is the opposite of the dominant hand. Don’t let tradition dictate on which hand you wear your watch; wear it where you find it most comfortable. Like any other garment or accessory, your watch should fit you properly in two key ways. The size of the dial should be proportional to your wrist, and the band should fit snugly but comfortably. A loose band looks sloppy, so take it to your jeweler to have it sized to your wrist.

5. Admire other men’s watches from a distance
Just as you would never touch another man’s wallet, don’t expect to handle his watch. For many men the watch is the only piece of jewelry they own or wear, and they take great pride in keeping it dust free, fingerprint free and well polished. It’s perfectly okay to politely ask to see a watch, but don’t expect him to take it off his wrist. If he offers, feel free to accept, but try to handle it as little as possible and never place it on a hard surface where it could get scratched.

6. Pair watches with outfits appropriately
Just as you wouldn’t sit on the beach in a morning coat, you also don’t want to wear your dress watch sailing. Try and match the type of watch you wear to the activity you’re involved in each day. If you’re unsure what you’ll be doing, pair it with your choice of clothes; sport watches with athletic wear, dress watches with business wear, or a simple Seven Friday with beach wear. If you’re invited to a formal event or gathering and the dress code calls for black tie, attitudes have changed about wearing a watch. Historically it is considered impolite to wear a watch, but the rules regarding black tie have softened to accommodate wearing a simple dress watch with a black face and band if you choose. A pocket watch like U-boat or Bomberg is an alternative. For the rare white tie event, tradition demands that you do not wear a watch at all.

7. Beware the implications of checking your watch
Even though a great watch is one of a man’s ultimate accessories, checking it can have some negative social implications even if that’s exactly the reason you are wearing it!
If you’re on a date, in a meeting, or at a social event, don’t check your watch visibly in front of other people. Just like it’s rude to check your phone at a movie or restaurant, checking your watch shows that you have other things on your mind; things that take precedence over your present company. Unless you’re still young and have a curfew, the only way you should know what time a date is over is when she says goodnight.

8. Wear dark with dark, and light with light
If you’re out during the day consider a lighter colored face such as white or cream. However, at night focus on darker dials such as black, grey or browns. Just like a tuxedo is for evening wear and you wouldn’t wear it to brunch, a dark watch dial should be on your wrist at night, rather than during your 9am tee time at the country club.

9. Never wear a dive watch with a suit
Just because James Bond did it, doesn’t mean you should. James Bond was a spy who might, in fact, jump into a river in a suit at any moment. As far as we can tell, he’s the only one (besides other actors with endorsement deals with Omega) who should wear a dive watch with a suit. Dive watches are bulky, they don’t fit well under a suit jacketand they are a tell-tale sign that you don’t know the rules of watch-wearing…or that you aspire to have your own theme song. The same way that you wouldn’t wear your sunglasses at night, leave the dive watch for casual wear and pair a simple dress watch with your suit.

10. The oversized watch is over 
For the last couple of years, oversized watches have become the norm in men’s style. This popular trend only served one purpose: to scream for attention. An oversized watch dwarfs your wrist, throws off the proportions of your entire outfit, and simply doesn’t “fit” well into a nicely combined outfit.
For a watch enthusiast, those large dials are nothing more than for show. If you want to be taken seriously in the world of horology, stick to watches that fit your wrist.
