One of the biggest trends on the street right now is monogram. Fashionistas are monogramming everything from handbags to jewelry to sweaters. This personalization trend has not enjoyed such a bounce in popularity since SATC!
Monogrammed items fade in and out of style. Monogrammed sweaters were huge in the 50’s and 60’s, while the 1980’s enjoyed monogrammed necklaces and sweaters. Initials graced handbags and luggage in the 1980’s and 1990’s while “Sex and the City” gave new life to monogrammed necklaces in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s. In 2004 the ultimate “IT” handbag was a color blocked shoulder bag with a single initial on the front. Since then, the monogram has faded towards the back of every Fashionistas closet; until now.
As we head towards winter 2014 and the holiday 2013 season, the monogram is huge. Not only are Fashionistas buying monogrammed items for themselves, monograms will be the hottest gifts to give, and receive, this upcoming holiday season. So, if your closet is lacking in the personalization department, this is the perfect time to pick up a monogram necklace, clutch or sweater. This is also the perfect time to start placing orders for personal, monogrammed holiday gifts! Love it!
I found a few fabulous items around the web you can personalize for yourself or that special someone this holiday season. Hope you love them! Happy shopping, and stay fabulous 😉
