Fashion Week 101: What to wear?

Nashville Fashion Week 2012 is less than a week away! Can you feel the excitement in the air? I can. I’m starting to get questions on how to make Nashville Fashion Week 2012 the best week ever. Not only will there be fashionistas in the mix, but everyday people who are new to fashion and how to maneuver such an event.

So this week, I’m gonna answer all your pressing questions in order to help make your fashion week experience the best!

First on the agenda is What to Wear? If you’ve never attended a fashion week, this can be a confusing conundrum. Most of my fashionable readers tend to glance at the candid shots (ie Street Style) from New York, Paris, and Milan fashion weeks. The attendees usually look super-stylish, modern (not trendy), and confident in their wardrobe.  So, how do you translate this thought process into celebrating a southern-style fashion week?

 My answer: Wear the best versions of your regular wardrobe!
Here’s how:

Girly girls should wear more sparkles this week, mod girls should step out the box with bold lines and futuristic styles, classic girls can amp it up with statement pieces, and hipsters can add on the bohemian accessories. The style choices are endless.

Loving the High/Low pieces! Designer bag with a thrifted skirt – cool!
This girl is sharp and modern
Street style at it’s best
Simple, yet breathtaking! 5 pieces that give an elegant touch

Remember, more is best this week. It’s also a good time to try something new. There will be tons of photographers at the events snapping pictures of the attendees. You wanna stand out? Try wearing something you’ve never worn before!

This is a MORE IS MORE look – eccentric headpiece, sheer pieces, and lovely label mixing.

Lets talk labels? If you got, flaunt it! If you are fortunate enough to have some Gucci, Chanel, Celine, Louboutin or whatever in your closet, this is the week to wear it.

Lastly, if these pictures haven’t inspired you, but only made you more confused, remember this – Be comfortable and have fun! Don’t be overly obsessed with how you look – just shoot to look your best every night. Even if your best is a pair of skinny jeans, a classic button-down shirt, and a a fancy bag, you’ll still be rocking it. Have fun, enjoy the shows, and party with the people.
