So, you've splurged on the stainless steel and sapphire Apple Watch. I did so myself, and I love the look and versatility, not to mention the durability. You don't want to put just any Apple Watch band on this beauty, right? You've got to keep it classy, whether you're dressing the watch up or down. You also want the band's hardware to match the shiny silver case. Here are some of the best bands for the stainless steel Apple Watch.

Our top picks

You can't go wrong with any of these bands; they're all great options to keep your stainless steel Apple Watch looking fine. Apple's original Milanese Loop is my favorite overall band. It's stylish without being trendy; it looks just as good with athleisure wear as it does with formal wear. It's a genuinely unisex band that looks amazing on everyone.

If you're not interested in the Milanese style, the bands that I recommend to all of my friends and family are anything from Clockwork Synergy. They are excellent quality bands at the lowest price that I have found. The adapters that Clockwork Synergy uses are the best quality; they slide on and off like butter but lock securely into place. You can find a massive selection of styles on their site.

For something dressier, consider the Goldenerre Crystal Pavé Link Band. This gorgeous band is the one I'll be wearing to my daughter's wedding.
