Monograms are an essential element of Southern style. Let’s get real: monograms are, in fact, a mandatory element of Southern style. They make a statement. They make your statement. Monograms put a personal spin on everything from tote bags and cufflinks to silverware and shams to pillows and pocket squares. Monograms can also be tricky. Mastering the order (“What goes in the middle?”) can be complicated and downright confusing. But knowing how to present them is key to telling your personal story. And once you get it right, the options are endless on how to make them look great–and just like you. There are so many different shapes, sizes, and weights. And so many color options too. For example, a single woman with a double-name will have a monogram that looks incredibly different than a single woman without a formal middle name. What’s the proper order? Should everything be an upper case letter? We’re here to set the record straight.
