10 Trends That Are Only Cool In Nashville

I’m a Tennessee girl, born and raised. And Nashville, the state’s capital, known for the eponymous TV show and its burgeoning culinary scene, is my hometown. I love this place. Case in point: I tear up listening to the city’s unofficial, corny theme song, “Music Calls Us Home.” But I’m moving to New York City in just a few weeks and in addition to saying goodbye to my family, my car, and my closet space, I’ll also leaving behind several Nashville-specific trends.

When did I realize that said trends weren’t acceptable any place other than Nashville? Well, I trace it back to my first N.Y.C. experience after freshman year of college. I distinctly remember wearing Nike running shorts, an oversized Tri Delta t-shirt, and Chaco sandals while walking to the nearest CVS and getting the weirdest looks. After a solid block of wondering if I smelled terrible or had a stain somewhere, it hit me–no one wears this here!

A flood of other trends that I suspected were only kosher to wear in Nashville came to mind, and through subsequent visits to NYC and chats with other Nashville-to-New York transplants, I’ve come up with a list of ten things that, while beloved in Nashville, simply are not socially acceptable in the eyes of New Yorkers. See them all in the slideshow and consider yourselves warned. 

For summer trends we do love, check out the pineapple and lobster print trends. Plus, load up on staples at the new Nordstrom Rack e-commerce site.
