Southern Charm: Fashion Inspired by Nashville

Fashion inspired by Nashville

Nashville is a great place to travel to in the fall - the weather is beginning to cool down, the leaves are changing colors, and peaches and honey are being sold in bulk. This Southern music-centric city attracts throngs of young people drawn to its country music scene and vibrant college towns. And things like The Country Music Awards and the TV hit show Nashville have only added to the town's buzz. Here are three looks inspired by Nashville's vibrant culture with a country soul and a hint of big city style.

1. Black and Gold Game Day: Southeastern Conference (SEC) football defines the South in the fall. Vanderbilt is an SEC school, and Nashville is teaming with college students. Cowboy boots are a fashion must, and “Vandy girls” always dress up for game day.

2. Country Music Awards Viewing Party: The CMAs, coming up on November 6, are one of Nashville’s biggest music nights. Diehard fans will dress up like Carrie Underwood or Taylor Swift and gather around the TV to watch their favorite artists perform and celebrate their achievements. It's the perfect time to get dolled up in a feminine dress and girly extras.

3. Sipping Fall Flavors at Edgehill Café: Nashville practically has a coffee shop on every corner. Some are cozy, some are hip and modern, but they all have one thing in common - they're always busy. A plaid shirt and comfy jeans are the perfect combo for sipping my favorite latte, the "Always Fall Somewhere" Latte at Edgehill Café - the s'more-like taste is to die for!

This makes me want to go to Nashville so badly!

This is so perfect! I won tickets to a Predators game at the end of Sept and my husband and I are planning a weekend away from Pgh to Nashville. I love your site normally, but this is like you read my mind! Keep up the great work! :-)

Thanks for the comments! Nashville isn't as big of a city as New York, L.A. or Chicago, but it definitely has a distinct style worth checking out! :-)
