This is Style in the South, a series in which our Southern-based editor, Allyson, shares with you her insights into the trends and shopping habits that Southern girls follow (and don't). She'll also share her own personal experience with how to dress since returning to the South after more than a decade away. Whether you live in the South, are visiting, or just feel curious today, she's here to give her Who What Wear perspective about all things Southern girl.
Even if you don't live in the South, aren't from there, or haven't even been there, you probably know someone who does or is, and that's probably why you're here.

It's why I searched high and low to narrow the best gifts down to stylish finds that they can wear, admire, and use. Keep scrolling to shop 22 gifts for the cool Southern girl in your life.
