Apple Watch Band that are Absolute Statement Pieces
Floral Apple Watch Band
Lilly Pulitzer Leather Watch Band: check out these bold floral patterns with a gold clasp. These bands are perfect for getting us in the spring mood.
Scrunchies Elastic Apple Watch Band: this two-pack is super cute. They come in tons of bright, fun colors. My daughter asked if you could wear them in your hair. Good question!
Faux Leather Monogrammed Floral Apple Watch Band: this dark gray floral watch band tastefully includes your monogrammed initials. The buckles are black stainless steel.
Animal Prints Apple Watch Bands
Faux Leather Cowhide Print and Crystal Bead Apple Watch Band: I know their listing says leopard but this print screams cow to me. This may be my favorite watch band of them all. Super stylish and affordable, this watch band will surely grab everyone’s attention.
Snow Leopard Elastic Apple Watch Band: I really love the snow leopard design. These bands are all handmade by an all-women company.
Boho Hippie Faux Snakeskin Chain Bracelet Apple Watch Band: The artist encourages you to measure your wrist before ordering. This band comes in various colors and totally dresses up your Apple Watch.
Thin Crisscross Leather Apple Watch Band: this watch band also comes in other colors and without patterns. I really like the champagne brown leather which has a bit of sparkle paired with the plain brown band.
Vegan Leather Cream and Rose Gold Studded Apple Watch Band: this simple band can be dressed up or down, yet it’s neutral enough to go well with any outfit.
Beaded Apple Watch Bands
Elastic Beaded Apple Watch Band: this affordable watch band bracelet is an easy way to dress up any outfit. It comes in a variety of colors.
Four-strand Beaded Apple Watch Band: this Etsy artist also created the criss-cross watch band (above). This watch band is both casual and pretty.
Gatsby Apple Watch Band: I am obsessed with this band. It’s just a stunning creation. I ordered this one for myself.

Studded Apple Watch Bands
Black Leather Gold-Studded Apple Watch Band: if you know me in person, this is 100-percent my go-to style. In fact, the creator features this watch band along with my favorite Rebecca Minkoff purse. You can see the exact handbag I have and how scored a deal on it in this post I wrote about Poshmark.
It also comes in lavender-gray leather with silver studs.

Metallic Stud Elastic Apple Watch Band: when I was a kid I had one of those bedazzlers. If only my studded accessories came out this nice! (Apparently, you can still buy the original bedazzler–who knew?) Anyhoo, I love this watch band.
Metal and Leather Apple Watch Bands
Elastic Metal Bracelet Apple Watch Band: this metal bracelet is perfect for everyday watch-wearing. It comes in a variety of metal tones.
Stainless Steel Snap Apple Watch Band: this reminds me of those Tiffany mesh rings that were so popular years ago. Just like the ring, this mesh band is timeless (no pun intended). This band also comes in various metal finishes.
White Leather Apple Watch Band: I love the simplicity of this band but the white leather gives it a bit more oomph. It also comes in different colors and materials.
Double Wrap Leather Apple Watch Band: this band is more expensive than most featured here, but just one look at it, and you can see how rich the leather looks. Made from Horween leather, this watch has a dual strap.
Burnished Leather Apple Watch Band: personally, I think this band looks more expensive than it is. Burnished leather (a process that darkens parts of the leather by pressure) makes this band more unique than most of the leather bands out there.
Geometric Print Apple Watch Bands
Geometric Print Silicone Apple Watch Band: this band is affordable and easy to take on and off. It’s not recommended for heavy active use so I probably wouldn’t wear it during a workout. But it’s super cute for everyday wear.
I also really like this band featuring a serape print, used most often for Mexican blankets.
Apple Watch Band Splurge
If you’re looking for a luxury brand of Apple Watch bands, look no further than Lagos. These stainless steel watches start in the $600 plus range and go for thousands.
