A few recommendations:

It closes just like a Milanese Loop, but is a lot more comfortable due to the material. This band is still in the Apple range, but in relatively dull colors. If you like brighter colors, you can choose Meyer Lemon (Dutch: dark lemon) or the somewhat calmer Peacock (peacock blue). Closes with a magnet. Make sure you order the right size: medium or large. Only for 42 / 44mm Apple Watch models.
Are you disappointed that Apple no longer releases neutral leather straps? If you want a black leather strap without fuss, nowadays you have to rely on the Hermès collection. Apple discontinued the classic buckle in 2018, perhaps because it had a too traditional appearance or because the straps do not lie flat after prolonged use.

Sports bands and sports loops are the most commonly worn models. Those who want to stand out a bit more can opt for light green, camel / light yellow, orange-red or lilac.
