CMA Fest is coming up next week in Nashville. For those of you not from Nashville…. CMA Fest is a four day long music festival in downtown Nashville. The city closes Broadway, where stages are set up all the way down to the river featuring all of the top up and coming *and* current artists. We thought it would fun to give you guys some idea of what to wear in Nashville for CMA Fest – or any outdoor summer concert!
What To Wear In Nashville For CMA Fest
While of course, being cute and stylish for CMA Fest is of utmost importance, so is being cool and comfortable for a day out and about in the heat and sun enjoying fabulous music. The good news is, casual is the name of the game for CMA Fest. Here are a few fun ideas for what to wear!
Two general notes. You will definitely want to wear a hat if it’s sunny – no sunburned faces here! We have included some of our favorite straw hats in the looks below in case you need a new one. And don’t forget that you will want to carry a clear stadium friendly bag. Luckily, there are SO many good looking, affordable options for them these days.
How To Wear Shorts At CMA Fest
A pair of printed shorts would be a perfect look for CMA Fest. You guys know we love the paperbag waist style of short. The style is classic, age appropriate, and flattering on most body types. This pair is a fun take on that style. Pair your shorts with a simple tank and your favorite summer accessories, and you are ready to walk about the door.
A Fun Denim Skirt Look
For those of you that like to wear skirts, an outdoor concert is a great opportunity. Last summer, jean skirts were sort of few and far between, but we are seeing some really good ones again this year. And thank goodness, because a good denim skirt is a closet staple if you are a skirt lover. Pair your skirt with a printed blouse and sneakers for a chic, put together look.
How To Wear A Matching Set For CMA Fest
Matching sets are still very much on trend. And a perfect way to look the part for an outdoor concert… While being supremely comfortable and cool at the same time. We are loving this set from Madewell!
Styling A Midi Dress For An Outdoor Concert
And of course, we have to show a midi dress look for this one. No words needed. You guys know how much we love our midi dresses! Sidenote on clear bags. One of the great things about most of the clear bags is that you can change the strap out to add a pop of color or pattern to your look. This bee strap is SO pretty. One of our team members owns one in black and gets countless compliments on it every time she wears it!
