How to Wear Monogrammed Accessories

If there’s one thing I’m overtly obsessed with, it’s monograms. I feel the need to have my initials marked on everything – kind of like when I had to write my name in permanent marker on every belonging in elementary school.

Maybe it’s the personal touch it adds to my outfits or maybe it’s the fancy feel a monogram adds to any piece – either way, I can’t get enough. Monogramming has increased in popularity recently, so now my obsession is a little more acceptable. Sort of. Like Reese Witherspoon once said, “If it’s not moving, monogram it!”

So, maybe you’re new to the idea of showcasing your initials on everything. Not to fear! Below, I’ve created two stylish and wearable looks featuring monogrammed accessories. Scroll down to see them both:


Monogram 1
Top, Jeans, Shoes, Bag, Earrings

Accessories are the perfect way to feature your monogram, whether it’s on a bag, a scarf, or even a headband! You can rock a low-key luxe look featuring an initial accessory with ease. Wear a blush pink sweater over grey skinny jeans for a feminine feel, and slip on a pair of pumps for added glamour. Complete the ensemble with faux diamond earrings and a cute pouch with your initial for a personal touch.

Love Letters

Monogram 2
Dress, Shoes, Scarf, Tights, Earrings

Another way to represent your letters is through initial jewelry. (Regina George’s initial necklace, anyone?) If you’re looking for a soft, romantic outfit that features a more understated monogram, look no further than this getup. Wear an oxblood skater dress over knit sweater tights, then add ankle booties for a trendy twist. Letter stud earrings add the right amount of personalization, while a floral scarf adds a bit of whimsy to this chic outfit.

What do you think?

    I’ve shyed away from monogramed jewelry in the past from fear it looked kind of tacky. But these looks make it seem so discreet and even fancy! Maybe it’s the particular pieces I saw before that were a bit garish

    You’ve inspired me to try and get something discreetly monogrammed!

    I don’t think it’s the monograms, but I love both of these outfits!!!! Especially the second one, it’s so feminine but not overdone!!!

    Monogramming is a very American thing. In the UK, it is something that only children do. You go through a phase of it when you’re about 10 and then realise that it’s tacky and move on.

    I like monograms but I will usually only wear one monogrammed item at a time. I have a necklace that I love wearing a lot but I think wearing too many monogrammed items at once is overkill.
