Winter is prime time for Southern
1.High-Style Hostess: Quintessentially Southern
We adore this fantastically feminine look featuring icy blue and festive fold, two shades that are utterly ideal for your Southern wintry style. Start with your favorite fluffy tulle skirt, add a prepped-out monogrammed button-up shirt and then top things off with a few staple accessories, like a pearl necklace and some solid-colored pumps. This look is great for all your dressier holiday events, but we all know that you’re expected to overdress in the South, so you can copy this look for laid-back events, too.
Southern leading lady Reese Witherspoon said it best: “My rule is if it’s not moving—monogram it.” You’ll see a ton of magnificent monograms in the best Southern-inspired outfits, and that’s by design. Take a preppy, structured blazer that looks like it belongs on a chic New Yorker, add a monogram and boom! It’s Southern. Monogrammed accessories are the perfect way to give your style a personalized, tailored look, even if you’re wearing the comfiest clothes you own.
2. Home for the Holidays: Relaxed But Intentioned
Now that we’ve gotten the pomp and circumstance out of the way, let’s get real for a second. Southern ladies love the frilly and the feminine, but when we feel like dressing casually, we always knock it out of the park. This cute but casual ensemble embodies the Southern style ethos: to wear what’s cute but what’s also practical. And we aren’t afraid to go out
The knit and plaid layers give the top-half of this style a laid-back but well-paired feel. Unless you’re lounging around at home on winter break, your Southern Belle style shouldn’t include many unintentionally oversized pieces. With that said, a cute boyfriend sweater makes the perfect addition to any wardrobe, so long as it’s paired with some chic skinny jeans and trendy accessories.
3. High-Style Party Guest: A Casual Dress with Luxe Touches
Traditional Southern style is all about the pretty little details. Think ruffles, bows and lace accents. Southern attire is never basic. Instead, it’s finished with a few sweet extras that make it pop. With that being said, contemporary Southern style is slightly more evolved. Like this chic look that takes the feminine details and pairs them down ever-so-slightly for a “just right” amount of detail.
We love this outfit because the pieces look perfect together, but they’re all versatile enough to stand on their own in other ensembles, too. The cherry on top of this mildly minimalist Southern look is, of course, the magnificent monogrammed loafers. If you have only a single pair of flats to rock this winter, make it some cozy, velvety loafs finished with your monogram! They’re some of the hottest flats around.
4. A Day at the Tree Farm: Outdoorsy Layers
Occasionally, like in the case of the riding boot and the quilted jacket, Southern style gracefully intertwines with English and New England style. We’re all lovers of posh, preppy style, so why not take cues from one another? Southern gals love their riding boots, especially when it comes to casual events outside.
This delightful look is perfect for just about any wintry excursion, from hunting for that picture-perfect Christmas tree
5. Running Errands: Southern Style with Urban Touches
Despite our Lilly Pulitzer obsession, nobody ever said Southern girls can’t rock black. In fact, many of us relish in the days when we can ditch the bright, pastel florals and straw hats for dark colors, leather,
This statement-making style combines a pair of authoritative, suede booties with soft, scalloped accessories and stripes for a soft but bold feel. The centerpiece of this style is, of course, the refreshing color block tunic that brings some sweet style but is also relaxed (yet flattering) enough to wear with leggings or dark denim. What makes it SouthernBelle approved? The monograms, of course!
