I was super busy with The Blogger Girls networking event that I ALMOST forgot to post this handy “What to Wear” to Nashville Fashion Week! How could I? So, even though Nashville Fashion Week starts today with the Nigel Barker (yes, America’s Top Model guy) book signing at 4pm and the Nashville Designer’s Showcase at 7p, you’ll still have a couple hours to pull together some looks.
Below I got some inspiration for you! From casual and chic, to elegant and edgy, there a look for you. As always, click the photo for shopping information.
First up is a trendy casual look look perfect for the Nashville Shops events happening all week and the industry panels/workshops happening on Saturday morning. The trend to try with this look? PASTELS! Pastel colors are totally in for spring. You don’t have to be all ‘girly’ with pastels, this pink moto jacket and cute Louis Vuitton clutch gives balance without looking too girly.
Next up is this party inspired look great for the runway shows on Tuesday at Acme Feed & Seed and Friday’s Ready-to-Wear runway show at the Bicentennial Amphitheater. When it comes to runway shows, I like to go all out! Try a trend you wouldn’t usually try. It may be something as simple as a bold lipstick or as complex as a new (to you trend). Don’t be scared! Be fierce!
Are you like me, rushing from work to attend fashion week events? Then this look is for you! With a couple fashionable updates, you can look savvy and sophisticated. Remember, jeans work well with with this transitioning weather. Rock this look at the Accessories as Art installation on Wednesday or at the Design + Fashion show on Thursday.
Lastly, on Saturday, the Fashion Forward Gala will feature the inaugural Fashion Forward Awards honoring Clare Armistead with the Nashville Style Icon Award. This is one of the most creative galas presented in the Nashville creative community. Of course, you can get creative with your look. Check out this creative cocktail dress look. The abstract print is quite on trend for Spring – try it!
I hope to see you this week’s events. This is the fifth year of Nashville Fashion Week. The commitee has designed various events to appeal to everyone on every price level. Enjoy yourself!
