Tag: bow tie

Southern gents know that there’s something to be said for the perfect bow tie. Sure, ties are professional, but Southern gentlemen know that bow ties add a little playfulness and make a man look just dandy.

If Southern gents are known for their bow ties, Southern gals are known for their ability to coordinate any outfit perfectly. Perfectly poised and put together, a Southern lady never forgets her pearls or that perfect clutch. And what could set a Southern gal’s heart to fluttering more than the chance to coordinate that perfect clutch with her beau’s bow?

Oatmeal Lace, known for fabulous clutches, has struck a beautiful partnership with Collared Greens, an eco-chic menswear line (with a fabulously Southern name). A match made in heaven? We think so, and love that their giving us the opportunity to make the perfect match for one Southern couple: a perfectly coordinated bow tie and clutch! These pretty, preppy accessories will be perfect for all of those friends’ weddings you’ll be attending this summer.

To Enter: Head on over to the Southern Weddings Facebook page and click the ‘Like’ button. Then scurry back over here and leave a comment telling us that you ‘like’ us. Lastly, tell us how you like to accessorize when attending a wedding (as a guest, naturally!).

    I like to have delicate, feminine accessories when attending a wedding. Perhaps drop pearl earrings and necklace and something simple for my hair. Elegant, simple and sophisticated.

  4. avatar Colleen Brown reply

    I like you on facebook. This would be perfect for my husband and I. We have two weddings to attend this summer. We would be the cutest couple at the party…other then the bride and groom of course. I love to accesorize with purses and bracelets. Love for things to match my outfits. Thanks for the chance at a great prize and I promise pictures if I win. =)

    I always like SW, but now I “like” you too! The best way to accessorize for a wedding is with pearls of any kind. Good shoes are awesome, but nothing finishes an outfit like pearls, especially in the south!

    I’m a long-time facebook like-er of Southern Weddings! And gingham is my all-time favorite print… it’s even my blog background! For casual and outdoor weddings, I like to layer delicate gold necklaces, and for more formal weddings, I’m all about the pearls! Beautiful shoes are a given at any wedding (or party or dinner date, or really anything!) ;)

  23. avatar Mary L reply

    I’ve liked y’all on Facebook! :)

    Usually when I go to a wedding, I like to keep my dress simple and classic and really amp it up with the accessories! I like to do a solid dress with a bold pair of sky high heels. If I wear a coral colored dress, I love using turquoise accessories (necklace/clutch).

  24. avatar Mary L reply

    I like to wear solid classic dresses to weddings so I have to step it up with accessories so I don’t look boring. I definitely like to accessorize with a bold pair of sky high heels and fun necklaces and clutches. My philosophy is to throw one unexpected item into my outfit and a fun clutch would be PERFECT.

  25. avatar Michelle Schuring reply

    I’ve liked y’all for a while now! I love to bling up a brightly colored dress with some great accessories, lots of sparkle! And might I add that clutch is super cute!!

  31. avatar Kelsey reply

    I “liked” y’all…but I really love y’all! And this clutch and bow tie combo are just perfect! I love classic jewelry and a fun clutch to pull an outfit together, but my favorite accessory is my fiance! It’s almost as much fun picking out what he’s going to wear with all the different bow ties there is to choose from! And having the chance for my clutch and his bow tie to match? That’s almost too much to handle (almost)!

  32. avatar jules reply

  33. avatar Rob!n C. reply

    I “liked” you on facebook if only they had a “love” button for you all!

    My favorite way to accessorize this year has been wearing a fun nail color like buttercup yellow with a honeysuckle colored dress! It’s an unexpected detail, plus my hands look cute when I get to show off my beautiful engagement ring!!!!!!!!!!!!

  34. avatar Megan reply

    Of course I have already “liked” ya’ll. I love to accessorize as a wedding guest by wearing colorful accessories to compliment my dress…and of course by sneakily matching my man (he hates when I make us too match-matchy)

  35. avatar Emily Lindner reply

    I love ya’ll on facebook!!! These would go perfect with our cotton boutonnieres down here in Mississippi!! But as I guest I love to wear a fun overly girly accessory like a huge bow headband to weddings! Can’t sleep tight without my daily fill of SWM! Love yall!

  36. avatar Jenny F. reply

    I “liked” you on facebook! I think the best way to accessorize is with some chunky statement jewelry. I’m a big lover of Etsy, beacuse they’ve got stuff there that you just can’t find anywhere else. It’s the kind of stuff that make people wanna strike up a conversation with you.

  37. avatar Elizabeth reply

    I “like” Southern Weddings and love all the great features y’all post! I recently discovered Oatmeal Lace, and think McKay has some absolutely beautiful designs, and I am loving the matching clutch and bow tie! When it comes to accessorizing for a wedding, I go for pieces that pop yet complement what I’m wearing:) And comfortable heels are always a must for the dance floor!

  38. avatar Marlowe Whittaker reply

    I “liked” yall on Facebook but I absolutely love yall. This clutch/bow tie combo is precious and perfect for a wedding. It would be the best couple accessory because I like to keep my style southern, classy and I’m always trying to get my Iowa boyfriend to get in touch with some southern roots.

  39. avatar Heather A. reply

  41. avatar Stefanie R. reply

    I “liked” you. I think the best way to accessorize is with a nice shawl. I have a champagne colored one that goes with just about everything and keeps me warm during those chilly evening receptions.

  42. avatar Kate reply

    I’ve “liked” you on facebook for a very long time! When attending a wedding, the dress is key. Something classy and cute that fits your personality.

  44. avatar Michelle reply

    I “liked” you guys on Facebook! I like wearing a muted solid color (black or navy, for example) with a pop of color in the shoes, clutch or flowery hair accessory! So fun!

  45. avatar megan reply

    i like you! i love to wear a colorful pashmina to weddings. it’s perfect to cover my shoulders during a church ceremony and handy to throw on when outside receptions turn a little chilly.

  46. avatar Jennifer reply

    Of course I like y’all on Facebook! I think a fancy pair of shoes is an accessory in itself! Bring along an equally fabulous clutch, and you’re set to go. Not to mention the proper jewels…. Either an amazing pair of earrings and a collection of bracelets or a chunky necklace with dainty stud earrings…pearls, maybe?

  47. avatar Sarah Torrens reply

    I love Southern Weddings!
    As a guest at a wedding, I usually wear a simple solid-color dress, but accessorize it with a chunky, interesting necklace or chandelier earrings!

  48. avatar Margaret Campbell reply

    If there was a “love” button on facebook, I would use it for y’all! As it is, I suppose I can settle for a simple “like.” Honestly, my favorite wedding accesory is a hefty champagne cocktail. But if we’re sticking to outfits, my fave accessory is my pearl studs or some gorgeous pumps. Keep it simple, keep it classy!

  49. avatar Joanie Oben reply

    I liked y’all. Hope I win!

    I’m actually going to a wedding tomorrow. I love to punch it up with bright colors in the summertime.

  50. avatar Amanda reply

    I like southern brides! and I liked you on fcbk! ;0) When I attend a wedding I first try and find out what the bridal party is wearing. I try not to match and clash at the same time. I looooove bangles and long dangling earings. It depends on the type of wedding but for my friends intimate backyard get together, I was able to wear a casual sundress, flip flops and dressed it all up with beautiful gold leaf earings and gold bangles.

  51. avatar Caitlin reply

    I “like” you a lot! (Even on facebook!) Love this giveaway! My wedding guest accessories usually consist of jumbo sized pearls, a hair flower clip or headband, a cute clutch bag (like the one in this giveaway – wink, wink), and naturally, some fabulous heels (you have to make your calves look ahhmazing)!

    I LOVE you guys! and I am dying to get ahold of this specific tie and clutch pair. I love to match us like southern beau and belle style. Because he calls me Belle. We are what I call country chic. Which is a classy look on a simply style. He is the most adorable thing in his suspenders and I like to get him and I tiny matching things to tie us together. I love to play up the fact that he is a southern doctor and he likes the way I make a throwback look for us when we go out to the theatre to see gone with the wind or at the wedding last month with a vest that was black and pink pinstripes and I wore pink heels and a clutch to match him. oooohhhh I hope I win!!!!!

  59. avatar Joy Gay reply

    I “LOVE” you guys on fb. I am dying to get my little mittens on this adorable pair. My best accesory is my sweet sugarbear! I love that he embraces that whole southern doctor thing and lets me get him in suspenders to take me out. We just did a wedding and he had a black/pink pinstripe vest and I wore heels and clutch to match. We almost stole the show, hahaha

  60. avatar Henria O. reply

    I like Southern Weddings on Facebook! This pair of accessories looks like they would be really fun to wear! Usually, I like to wear a pretty hair clip or flower in my hair along with a nice clutch and some interesting shoes!

  64. avatar Britt reply

    SW is awesome! I love a classic dress and a string of pearls for a wedding

  65. avatar Whitney reply

    I “liked” y’all on Facebook! (And in real life too!) When attending a wedding, I like to accessorize usually with one bold statement piece, ie. a chunky costume jewelry type bracelet or huge dangly earrings or a cute belt. After I choose one bold piece, I add small details in fill the outfit out, such as tiny pearl earrings or a silver ring. I think this keeps the look fresh, classy, and doesn’t attempt to outdo the bride!
