Simply Southern makes some of the most fashionable accessories - and some of the most fashionable clothing - that you will find. If you are someone who likes to show off your pride in your Southern Heritage and add a little bit of color to the mix while you’re at it, then Simply Southern may just be the way for you to go. Lucky for you, at Girls ‘Round Here, we don’t just sell the dresses and clothing by Simply Southern that you may have grown to love. We also offer special accessories like Simply Southern branded drinkware, hats, wallet and organizers, jewelry, and more. One of the least utilized and most useful of these accessories is a lanyard. Far from just a trinket, the way you use a lanyard can change up your daily routine, and the way you use a Simply Southern lanyard can allow you to do it in style, too! Check out these great uses for a lanyard while you’re here.
Stash Small Items
One of the best uses for a lanyard is to carry small items that would otherwise get lost in the depths of a purse or a pocket. Little items like pieces of individually wrapped gum, a pair of tweezers or nail clippers, or even little papers and a pen with which you keep daily notes can all get lost easily - or you can stash them in your lanyard so they will be at the ready. Whatever little effects that you find you need everywhere you that can easily be stashed in a lanyard should be. It will save you a lot of headache in the end!
Hold Your IDs
Here is perhaps the most perennially popular use for a lanyard of any sort. It’s just a convenient way to keep your IDs and other cards, whether you store all of your credit cards in one or split them up between a lanyard and a wallet. Some people even get wise and throw their keys on the lanyard while they’re at it so that everything they need is in one place and easily accessible. By the same token, if you need to carry a special ID in order to get into or out of a building for work, carrying it on a work lanyard can make the process a lot less involved.
Another great use for a lanyard is to carry a little bit of handy cash or even coins on you. If you keep them stored away in your purse or in a wallet, they can get lost in the details, but if you keep a little spending money on your lanyard you can always keep it front and center. You don’t need to limit yourself to bills, either. You can just as easily stash a few coins in a lanyard to make it easy for you to pay tolls on the fly.
Carry a Phone
Not everyone has a phone that can easily be carried in this manner, but at the same time, if you can get away with attaching your phone to a lanyard, you’ll always know where it is. This can be a real bonus for people who are constantly misplacing their belongings. We’ve all heard a horror story, or worse, experienced one, in which the main character lost something important like a phone or a wallet. In this case, clip your case onto your lanyard and your phone will always be at your fingertips. Convenient and secure!
Dispense Hand Sanitizer
Nowadays, no one wants to be far away from a fresh squeeze of hand sanitizer, and who can blame them? Half of the country is still under some form of lockdown or other, and the effects are COVID-19 are still front and center in a lot of people’s minds. General precautions include wearing a mask in public and religiously washing and cleaning your hands. In the absence of quick and easy access to a sink and soap, a lot of people have taken to carrying around a personal stash of hand sanitizer. A Simply Southern Lanyard will just make it that much easier for you to carry around your sanitizer in style.
Match Your Outfit!
As you can see from some of the other entries to this list, a Simply Southern lanyard is great for stashing and organizing some essentials; but because of the number of different cute designs and styles, there’s a pretty good chance that you can match your outfit as well! It’s just a bonus that comes along with an SS lanyard, like any other Simply Southern gear.
