It doesn’t take much to get us totally hooked on a Bravo show. Needless to say, the network’s latest creation, Southern Charm, won us over completely.

Sweet tea. Warm weather. There’s just something about the South that makes us want to smile. Channel your inner southern belle and dress the part (no matter where you live) with these quick tips:

  2. Throw on a girly dress with all the best details: pink polka dots, a full skirt, and a strapless silhouette.
  3. Step into a pair of nude sandals (they go with everything). It’s an excuse to pamper yourself with a pedicure, too.
  4. Prepare for sunny days – and doting stares – with a pair of oversized shades.
  5. Finish the look with a bright white envelope clutch big enough for the essentials (phone, wallet, and lipstick).

All that’s missing? That sweet southern drawl.
