When I was at University, some of my go-to clothing pieces included large, swirly monograms (usually smack on the breastbone of a sweater or boldly taking up all of the real estate on a handbag or scarf.) A monogram can turn otherwise bland pieces and accessories into something special and uniquely yours. In fact, I think I became a true convert in order to stop my college roommate from constantly borrowing my clothes!
Many years later, I am still a fan of charming letters on sweaters, block prints on shirt cuffs, and of course, all forms of casual jewelry sporting my initials. Lucky for me, in recent years monograms have made an incredible resurgence after a noticeable absence. Happily, I’m seeing monograms on everything from traditional writing paper, to home goods, to totes, hats, bags and more.
And, as I begin thinking about holiday gift giving, monograms are top of mind. Adding a monogram to a bag, pillow, tea set, sheets, or sweater creates a one-of-a-kind gift they will treasure.
I’ve highlighted a few suggestions for contemporary home and fashion accessories that become truly special with the simple addition of a monogram. But, the possibilities are endless.
Many retailers such as L.L. Bean, Vinyard Vines, J. Crew, and Smathers & Branson already offer monogramming services. Or, try a local embroidery shop or seamstress who can easily and inexpensively add monograms to other pieces.
Monograms? They’re not just for co-eds anymore!
