Taste of Style – Who Wears Summer Best?
This week, country’s hottest stepped out with some of the best summer styles yet. From new hairstyles to vintage clothes, the week brought a lot of fabulous finds — in fact the style was as eclectic as the music.
Taylor Swift walked the streets of New York City with an adorable new ‘do — and great threads to boot. Kacey Musgraves stopped by a Nashville vintage store to pick up a couple of great pieces we’re hoping to see on a red carpet soon. And one Georgia boy held it down for the men in a snazzy plaid cowboy top.
Our favorite outfit of the week includes a pop of pink just enough to help this 24-year-old songstress land her spot as the week’s Fashion Diva. See all the photo highlights in this week’s Taste of Style.
Every fashion vixen knows the importance of good vintage finds. Kacey Musgraves is one of those women. Over the weekend, Musgraves took a trip to Pura Vida Vintage on Nashville’s Music Row and posed with a couple of amazingly adorable country finds.
“Had so much fun today at @puravidavintage on Music Row in Nashville,” the singer writes along with a photo of one of her purchases on Instagram. “Scored some great finds. Like this fringy cowgirl collar thing.” In the photo, Musgraves is posing in the cropped cow print fringe vest. We hope to see the ‘Blowin’ Smoke’ singer sporting this vintage look at a show soon! (Side note: who looks that without makeup?!)
Musgraves also picked up a new pair of boots while she was out vintage shopping. The cow print boots are short with dark leather at the top and bottom with cow hair covering the majority of the boot’s body. No one pulls off a fancy cowboy outfit quite like Ms. Musgraves. Moo-ving on…
For Jana Kramer‘s performance during CityWalk’s Music Spotlight Series, the sexy singer showed that she’s a little country — and a little rock ‘n roll (eat your heart out, Brantley Gilbert). From her long locks to her black toes, the ‘Love’ singer looked polished and put together. This look is courtesy of her “bestie” (as he calls her on Instagram) and amazing stylist, Lawrence “Lo” VonRumpf.
Who says you can’t wear leather in the summer? Kramer proves them wrong in a short black leather vest. She added a feminine touch with a big accent necklace that peeked out from under the vest. Its teal and white colors make the outfit pop! She wore sleek grey shorts and paired them with black strappy stiletto heels to show off her long legs. Kramer completed the outfit with a couple of leather bracelets and black pedicure for a look that reminded us how eclectic country is becoming.
Jason Aldean is making our Taste of Style list for the very first time this week. The ‘Burin’ It Down’ singer is one of our favorite country boys and he really stepped up his fashion game for Country Thunder.
Aldean brought some southern style to Twin Lakes, Wisc. He donned a classy (yet country) red plaid shirt with just a few buttons undone at the top (nope, we wouldn’t mind another). He paired the sassy shirt with dark denim jeans that were just the right amount of bootcut to fit over his camel colored cowboy boots. Did anyone else notice that his hat matches his guitar? Now that’s what we call country chic.
This Week’s Fashion Diva: Taylor Swift!
Not only did Taylor Swift sport a sassy new ‘do in NYC last week, she also showed off her hot bod in a two-piece outfit fit for a (modern) country superstar. The ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ singer took a Central Park stroll looking straight out a fashion mag.
When Swift debuted her shorter haircut, we weren’t sure whether we should focus on the hair or that outfit! The singer wore an alice + olivia grey crop top with cap sleeves and a matching Davis pleated tweed skirt. She didn’t show too much skin, opting for the matching skirt with a higher waistline (T. Swift always keeps it classy).
Her neutral colored outfit allowed her to add a few bright accessories for a burst of summer sunshine. She opted for a pair of bright pink pumps (and what girl doesn’t go ga ga for a pair of Christian Louboutin’s?!) and a yellow satchel by Dolce and Gabbana. When it comes to summer, we believe the brighter — the better! Keep it up, T. Swift!
