Unisex Color

Philippines
June 20, 2017 9:07am CST
I was planning to buy a watch. And so, my sister and I went to the mall. From one stall to another, I patiently looked for the perfect watch. Until I saw what I was looking for. It was a sporty type rubber strap for female and it has a variety of colors to choose from—red, pink, black, gray, white and dark blue. Usually, I would go for the red but I already have one. So, I chose gray for it was kind of unique. As the salesclerk was wrapping my watch I said to my sister, “Gray color would go with anything. I don’t have to worry about matching it with the dress or shoes I’m wearing.” Before my sister could say a word, the salesclerk cheerfully chirped in, “Yes, Ma’am. It’s unisex and it matches with anything!” Unisex? I know I have that confused look in my face. And I could hear my sister giggling. Honestly, I’d prefer the words ‘Neutral color’ than Unisex. It would make a lot of sense. Have you ever had a conversation that confuses you in the end? Photo source: Google images

Actually most salesclerks do say that to mean it would suit the two genders. I guess, that's how they perceive it to be because they heard it being said by other people.

@SIMPLYD The use of word unisex kind of confused me because I thought she was referring to the watch which was a sports watch for female. Then I realized I was talking about the color.

"unisex' is so common used word in our slang instead of neutral color. Unisex color, dress, name among others, we seldom use 'neutral name or dress.

Somehow, you're right. It's a common word to describe that it can be worn either men or women.

Unisex means it's either for men or women.

The confusion started when I thought she was talking about the watch, which was obviously a female watch. Then I realized she was talking about the color. Yes, you're right @Letranknight2015, it means either for men or women.

So how many watches do you have in total? Once, I have about 12 or so to choose from, before we leave the house. These days, they all got dumped into a box.

@cacay1 My husband likes to collect pretty things with sparkle stones inside (every time he returns from a trip). They need batteries and I couldn't be bothered these days.

Hello @YrNemo, I have two watches. One for formal occasions and one for everyday use (the sporty one that I bought ). I used to have more before like 8... but batteries are expensive. So I have to settle for two.

I'm sure I caused a lot of confusing conversations. I've never heard a watch band color considered unisex.

Now that you mentioned it, I couldn't agree more. I was kind of confused at first because I was thinking she was referring to the watch itself. It was sports watch for women and then she mentioned unisex.

A lot will use the word unisex in referring to be a neutral thing, sis! Like beige is a unisex color cause it matches anything.
