Three Ways to Wear Thursday: 3 Ways to Dress like a Southern Belle


Have you ever wondered, what are the most important elements of dressing like a Southern Belle? Well, question no more, VIP readers, because the VIP is here! 

Okay–for starters, you don’t have to be a true Southerner to dress like a Southern Belle because rule no. 1 of Southern style is keeping it classy! So, without further ado, let’s take a look at the VIP’s three ways to dress like a Southern Belle! Below are the essentials:

1. Pearls, pearls, & MORE PEARLS

2. Coastal/Beachy Apparel 

3. BIG hair–DUH *wink*



PEARLS–they’re given to us by our mommas, grand-mommas, and best friends. They are the true definition of a timeless accessory that has the ability to dress up ANY ensemble ANY time of year. Whether you’re investing in cheap pearls or the real deal, you cannot go wrong with layering beautiful strands together.

COASTAL/BEACHY APPAREL–Because we Southerners love to travel to the coast during the summers (I mean, who doesnt?!), embracing a beach-inspired style is a total no-brainer *wink* And brands like Simply Southern, Lauren James, and Lily Pultizer make it super easy for all ladies to rock the style all year long!

BIG HAIR–I don’t think I have to explain this one very much *wink* Dolly Parton is a PRIME example of how we Southern women love teased and hair-sprayed hair. The higher the hair, the closer to heaven *hands in air*


Stay Fabulous,
