Everything is just a bit more casual come summertime, both for the sake of style and comfort. We don our shorts, our hats, our sunglasses. A watch fits into the mix as well, and should keep the same relaxed look and comfort. And for that, you’ll want to find the right strap.
Nylon, canvas and rubber are the obvious choices here — they’re lightweight, soft, breathable and can be washed free of any sand, salt water and sweat. Leather and metal bands are also acceptable, but opt for something perforated or mesh for enhanced airflow. With that utility comes a dose of effortless, casual cool. Any of these 15 straps will transform any watch into a heat-beating timekeeping companion.
