East Side Fashion

Fall is definitely here and the fashion view in East Nashville is fine!  Here are some trends for different age groups.


The teen crowd seems to be taking retro to a new level.  From tent dresses and high waisted pants to Birkenstocks and flannels these are styles we have seen before yet this age group is throwing in some unique flairs.  Florals and prints were everywhere this summer, but for fall, cardigans, ankle boots, thick knit knee socks, leggings, chunky sweaters, oversized everything, except jeans are ripped and skinny.   According to my sources, the boyfriend jeans are for moms.  I am just the messenger.  Burgundy has emerged as one of the favorite colors of Fall 2017. Yellows and golds are also on the menu.

Teen boys are adhering more to traditional styles of straight legged, but not skinny, pants.  Boys seen around the neighborhood have been in button down plaid shirts with their jeans.  Chuckers and knit material athletic shoes seem to be the standard footwear.  Cropped hair with texture on top keeps our East Nashville guys on trend with major American and European cities.

Adult females in East Nashville are embracing skinny pants, jeans and leggings.  They are pairing longer coat or sweater to cover assets and look more polished.  Animal print flats finish the casual yet sleek look.  Another noteworthy look for this over twenty crowd is pant suits.  While the runway trends show more flared looks, East Nashville’s Y chromosome crowd is sticking with peg leg and cropped pants with tailored jackets.  Heels are a must with suits or dresses.  While most types of heels are acceptable depending on how they are paired with the clothing, block heels are the shoe of the moment.

Deconstructed looks are also high on the must wear list.  This look ranges from ripped jeans to fringed and braided edges.  Also, off center is a way to describe the deconstructed look.  In the 37216 and 37206 zip codes, many are wearing fringe hemmed jeans in a variety of colors.  Try wrapping a crisp white shirt, with a cami underneath, so that the button line criss crosses in an asymmetrical way and then belt the blouse with a thicker belt.  Wear this with your fringed skinny jeans and the pumps shown above and feel completely confident in your fashion prowess.
