Pretty in Pink

Molly Ringwald and John Cryer in the iconic prom scene from the 1986 film Pretty in Pink

You’ve got your dress sorted, your hair has been coated with so much hairspray it could withstand a force-10 gale and you’ve got your ‘entrance walk’ down pat.

But have you thought about your watch? You can’t take your phone in your clutch, it’s just too big, and how else will you know what time your carriage will turn into a pumpkin? In modern parlance this obviously means what time will your dad be outside the venue waiting, while playing embarrassing loud music and honking his horn…

From the extravagant to more “just for the night” numbers, we’ve picked our favourite watches that will look perfect with your outfit and, hopefully, help you keep your dad’s cringe-inducing behaviour to a minimum. Because you still believe in fairy godmothers, right?
