What Are Some Outfit Ideas for a Nashville Trip?
One thing you do want to consider when planning outfits for Nashville is the weather. Summers in the south can be very humid, and you want to make sure you have lots of options for the days when the temperature gets over 90.
The transition seasons of spring and fall are warm but more comfortable, and wintertime is chilly and wet. In fact, there’s always the chance of a random storm, so it’s better to pack options! (Overpackers, we’re looking at you).
You also want to think about what you’re doing, whether you’re hitting Broadway, seeing live shows, or grabbing tickets to a game. Nashville has a lot of museums, activities, and restaurants to check out, and you want to make sure you’ll feel comfortable and cool in whatever outfit and environment you choose. These are just a few of our top picks for Nashville outfits you won’t want to miss.
If you want to get into the spirit of the city, cowboy boots are the way to go. While it’s not as traditional to wear cowboy boots if you’re a native of Nashville, they’re a popular trend among tourists and visitors, and for good reason.
Nashville is all about country music, and whether you’ve got tickets for your favs or you’re just hitting up the live music on Broadway, there’s country music and vibes to be found wherever you look.
Cowboy boots can be very cute, and they can pair with a wide range of skirts, shorts, dresses, and pants. The one thing you do want to watch for is comfort. Nashville is, at the end of the day, a city. Walking in cowboy boots might not be the most comfortable experience, so it’s helpful to add insoles to make sure you can focus on the fun ahead.
We just can’t get enough of summer rompers. They transition easily from day to night — a must for your next Nashville adventure with the besties — and they’re easy to dress up or down, depending on what the morning might hold.
Rompers are also a good way to look cute and put together, all while keeping cool in the summer heat. You can find them in a wide range of patterns and styles, and pair them with cute and comfortable walking shoes that will make it easy to get around the city.
There’s just no better way to stay cool on a hot summer day than with a cute sundress. And, of course, sundresses are ideal for taking pictures with your besties. They come in a wide range of textiles, patterns, and styles, so it’s easy to find a sundress that matches your personality and helps you to feel cute all day long.
One of the most popular types of summer dresses you’ll see in Nashville is the puff sleeve mini dress. It’s feminine and chic and pairs well with a sun hat for keeping cool. These dresses even look cute with more practical shoes, so you can stay comfortable from the first mimosa at brunch.
Shorts and Tanks
You just can’t go wrong with the classics, and when it comes to summer, we’re all about denim shorts and tank tops. This look is ideal for visitors coming to Nashville at the height of summer when it’s much more about keeping cool than it is about looking cute. (Okay, maybe it’s always about looking cute).
The cool thing is that you can wear your shorts and tank top with your new cowboy boots, and you can pick up tank tops with all your favorite performers and bands, so it feels like you’re getting into the spirit of the city. You may even want to consider a fringe tank top to elevate the style. Add in a red bandana for a true country look.
Tight Skirt and Rock Tee
Another way to wear your favorite band or artist tee, but with a little more elevation, is by layering it over a tight dress or skirt. This is a particularly cool look for vintage band tees, and you can pair it with your favorite high tops for daytime exploring and cowboy boots for a night dancing at a show.
The benefit of a look like this is that it’s cool and comfortable, and you can use the dress or skirt for more than one outfit, which means you’ll definitely be able to fit all into a carry-on.
One of the top trending looks on social media and in all the top party cities is the corset top, and there are so many reasons to love this style. Corset tops are versatile, and it’s easy to find one in a color and pattern that really feels like you.
Consider a dark or lace corset top for a night out with the girls, paired with anything from denim shorts to a flowing skirt, or pick out pastels and florals for sunny adventures.
Nashville has a lot of cute tea and coffee spots, beautiful brunch restaurants, and even places to picnic, and a corset top can be a feminine and unique option for adding elegance and beauty to your look.
Bell Bottom Pants
If you love retro and vintage 1970s vibes, bell bottoms are definitely the way to go. High-waisted is in right now, but you can take it to the next level with flair jeans or corduroys that give Daisy Jones and the Six all the way.
Nashville has a remarkable music history, and you can embrace that history by visiting all the music museums across the city in your favorite pair of flairs. Pair bell bottoms with a corset or crop top for the full effect.
Don’t forget to pack your swimsuit and coverup. Most of the hotels and a lot of the rentals within the city will give you access to a pool, and there’s no better way to cool off at the end of a hot day.
Even if you’re staying in a house without pool access, you can actually purchase pool passes to a few of the daytime spas, which is the perfect opportunity to show off your favorite swimsuit styles.
You want to make sure you have a cover-up if you’re planning to swim in the heat of the day and that you pack plenty of sunscreen, whether you’re catching party buses or catching rays. Swim parties are all the more reason to pack your favorite sun hat, as well.
Rock Your Nashville Trip
The perfect outfit is one that gives you confidence and comfort, no matter what the day ahead might hold. And if the day ahead includes adventures and travels across Nashville, you have lots of different options to pick from.
It’s important to account for the weather and temperature to ensure you stay comfortable on your trip, and to pack accordingly for the shows, events, and activities you and your friends might be enjoying.
That said, it’s easy to make your next Nashville outfit really feel like your own. Consider something super feminine, like a sundress or pastel corset top, or pay homage to the history of music and the city with a pair of cowboy boots and a vintage band tee. The best outfits for your next Nashville trip will be easy to mix and match and to swap out or elevate for the transition from day to night.
