ALL IN THE DETAILS: Monogram March

Spring is finally here, but winter didn’t really get the memo. While we dream of warmer days, we can spend the last couple weeks of cold weather in monogrammed style like this Fashionista.

Monogramming has been a tradition in the fashion world for years. From the beginning with Louis Vuitton’s signature mark, monograms have always been a way to set yourself apart from the crowd. To the South, monograms are a staple like sweet tea and tailgating. The tradition has been adapted to include initials on everything. I mean EVERYTHING. From belts, backpacks, scarfs, hats and more, monograms are the Southern girls’ way of saying, “Look out world; this Fashionista’s name will soon be as famous as Vuitton’s signature LV.”

This Fashionista shows how to perfectly balance monogrammed details into your everyday look. By keeping her look to a single color palette, her initials pop. Her look is extremely easy to recreate for long days in class. Simply pair a lightweight Piko top with leggings, and you’re out the door to that 8:00 a.m. in no time!

The details give the look an interesting preppy twist. Her gorgeous patterned scarf is the perfect pair to her easy, flowy top. My overall favorite part of the look has to be the monogrammed leather riding boots. The light colored stitching of the initials pops against the background of the dark brown leather.

If you’re not as attached to monograms as this Fashionista, start it off simple at first. Buy yourself a pair of monogrammed earrings that add the perfect dainty detail to any spring outfit. But I’ll warn you, once you start monogramming, you never go back!

How To: Do you have the perfect trendy spring outfit, but you still feel like something is missing? Add a little individuality to the look with your monogram! Stick it on your backpack, necklace or button-down top. Wherever it is, you and your monogram are sure to make a fashion statement!
