Here at MyBag HW we’re really excited about the Daniel Wellington collection; a classic unisex watch brand with incredibly sleek, timeless designs. Inspired by an Englishman named – you guessed it – Daniel Wellington, who wore watches on old NATO straps, these watches combine clean minimalist watch faces with interchangeable NATO or leather straps.

The Swedish brand has garnered a cult status among the fashion set over the past couple of years and we’re not surprised; its classic styles will suit every style, are incredibly versatile and will instantly add a hint of luxury to any outfit. We’re looking to some style savvy bloggers for inspiration on how to wear Daniel Wellington watches.


First up is German blogger Mija from Connected to Fashion, whose minimalist style is impeccably clean and ever so slightly androgynous – think boyfriend jeans and oversized white shirts, and outfits in head-to-toe white made up of tailored separates. We love this easy take on tailoring she has in this outfit, with a draped duster coat, matching tapered trousers and buttoned-up white shirt. Keeping her accessories to a minimum, she wears a pair of round sunglasses and the Daniel Wellington watch with black leather strap.


For a sleek city outfit, look no further than London-based Silvia Postolatieva. Wearing leather trousers (every fashionista’s favourite), she wears zipped-up ankle boots, a graphic tee and relaxed khaki blazer. Keeping her look ever so glamorous, she finishes it all off with oversized sunnies, a classic black handbag and leather Daniel Wellington watch.


British blogger Megan from Pages by Megan is always ahead of the trends, and shows us monochrome will never go out of style with this look. Teaming her black skinny jeans and vest combo with an ivory duster, her everyday look is given a luxe finish with her Daniel Wellington watch.


One thing about Daniel Wellington watches is they look just as good on men as they do on women; enter Copenhagen-based Patrick from the blog By Pankalla, and his minimalist Scandi style. He wears his Daniel Wellington watch with slim black trousers, lace-ups, a camel scuba sweater and fedora. Casual, stylish menswear at its finest.
