When folks think of Nashville, Tennessee, they often think of country music. But, did you know the birthplace of country music is actually Bristol, Tennessee? Still, Nashville continues to stand out as a favorite travel destination where you can let your inner Dolly Parton shine.

Regardless of where you’re headed, you want to look GORG. The locals tend to stick with jeans and nice tops. If you want to dress like a local, that’s definitely the way to go. But it’s FAR from being your only option. Let’s get into it.

What To Wear In Nashville

Jeans

The current clothing style in Nashville is hipster meets country western meets boho. At the center of that is a pair of classic blue jeans. This is fantastic since you can wear jeans with pretty much ANYTHING, any time of year. As you create your packing list, make sure jeans are at the top!!

You can’t go wrong with a good pair of jeans. Pick your fav fit, wash, etc. and just go with it. Flares? LOVE. Skinny jeans? YASS BABE. Destroyed mom jeans? WE STAN A TREND-SETTER.

Tops

Jeans and a chic top are all the rage in Nashville these days. Believe it or not, that DEF works in your favor. There are SO MANY different tops to choose from. From plain tees to strapless bustiers and everything in between. For a stunning collection of chic tops, check out Donni clothing!!

YOU decide the look you’re going for and what kind of top shows off your best assets (or hides your less-favored bits). The options are endless!!

Dresses

A HAWT dress is a must when visiting Nashville for a bachelorette party. If the bride-to-be wants Nash-Vegas vibes with sequins, fringe, and the like, then by all means, give the gal what she wants!!! 

Otherwise, a floral dress with a slight Western vibe is the way to go. You’ll see what we mean when you check out the ‘fits we’ve curated below.

Jackets

Jackets are a must when visiting Nashville in the winter. They also make the perfect outfit addition when you just need a little something to complete the look.

A denim jacket thrown over a t-shirt dress is one of our fav looks. OHH and don’t get us started on our love of sexy leather jackets!!! Who would’ve thought a jacket would be our go-to statement piece?! Nashville locals, that’s who!!

Boots

Boots are IN, but to avoid the gimmicky, cliche look, opt for western-style boots, classic Chelsea boots, or booties. Remember, you want a hint of Western not outright, in-your-face, over-the-top country Western. But, no matter what boots you’re wearing, just make sure you can still do your best boot, scootin’ boogie. 

Accessories

Listen… there’s nothing wrong with being true to your roots. If you work on a farm, grew up on a ranch, or ride horses for a living, then by all means, wear whatever you want, no matter how “gimmicky” it may seem. Otherwise… babe, leave the cowboy hat at home. 

Nashville has a lot more of a hipster vibe these days. That means, when it comes to your outfit, you’re much better off going with a hint of Western style rather than full-blown cowgirl. Accessorize with chic, boho jewelry instead. And don’t forget your bandana!!

7 Nashville Outfits That Are American Made 

Classic, Easygoing Nashville Outfit

Jeans, t-shirts, and boots are the quintessential Nashville look, so you know we had to put our spin on it. Plus, we adore the whole chill AF, easygoing vibe. What’s more easygoing than a pair of classic skinny jeans and a tee? 

These 100% super high-rise slim jeans are crazy flattering without being uncomfortably tight. This graphic tee is giving EDGY yet comfy… two of our FAV things. And these ivory boots?!? To die for. We LOVE how they pull this whole look together. 

Laidback & Edgy Going Out Outfit

This look is pretty laid back too, but with an edge… bc you don’t want to blend in TOO much!! A chic t-shirt dress is one of our fav wardrobe staples. They’re SOOO versatile. We styled the dress with a denim shacket and tall black boots. It’s PERF for chillier weather when you need a bit more coverage, but don’t want to bundle up. 

Trendy Nashville Outfit

Here’s a ‘fit for warmer weather and man, you’ll feel like a woman in this one. 😉 These classic boot-cut jeans are zhuzh up a bit with a bustier top. We then threw on a button-up shirt, worn unbuttoned of course, for baddies who don’t want to show too much skin. The sandals are such a look right now and they go PERF with this outfit.

Baddie In Black

Do all your exes live in Texas?? Get ready to show them what they’re missing. We LOVEEE an all-black look. If you want to show up and show out in the edgiest, most FLAWLESS way, this baddie in black look is IT. The black denim shorts with a black leather belt go perfectly with this black tank and oversized black blazer. Chic AF black boots complete the look. We’re obsessed!!!!!

Flirty & Fun Nashville Outfit

You don’t need cowboy boots and hats to match the western-style, country music scene that Tennessee is known for. We mentioned earlier that the right dress makes for the perfect ‘fit for a trip to Nashville. A dress like this floral mini dress is EXACTLY what we meant.

To give it a bit of an edge and to bring in a slightly Western vibe, we added this black leather belt and tall black boots. Get ready to rock me mama like a wagon wheel in this one – get it girl!!

Faux Leather ‘Fit

Every baddie HAS to own a pair of faux leather leggings. They’re the new neutral pant. Slip them on and instantly feel like a total babe. It worked for Sandy in Grease all those years ago and it def still works today. 

We styled a sexy pair of faux leather leggings with a tank top, a white denim jacket, and black boots. Anyone can pull off this b&w faux leather look!!

Boss Babe

For those occasions when you want to dress to impress, WE GOT YOU!! Look at this mini cape dress!! It’s flawless. Wear it with black heels to show off your mile-long legs and that honky tonk badonkadonk. This stunning gold necklace completes the look. Now get out there and make jaws DROP!!!
