Two conjoined words no-one wants to hear when trying to figure out what to wear. Especially to something as undefined as; it’s not a Conference (wanky pretentious eye roll face), it’s a Live Event…
How smart is too smart? Can you turn up in your joggers? You want to be comfy right….
Remember not to wear the pink shirt it’s a magnet for sweat patches.
And if you’re thinking you’ll be that couple of pounds lighter for the tight waistband in time for CMALive – you won’t be. Don’t risk it. Nothing worse than uncomfortable belt bulge. I mean we’re all friends here but the unbuttoning of the top button is a bit far – even by Chris’s standards.
Choosing what to wear is a crucial part of your pre CMA Live preparations. There’s been big chat in the Slack and Facebook already. Plenty of confidence for being that lil’ bit ‘EXTRA’ #Debbie 😉 for what’s set to be the event of the year.
We all love a packing list. Andy Hart can tell you the exact pants ratio required for a 4 day 3 night stay. But depending on your tolerance, it’s probably best you double his suggestion.
So here goes, let’s take a walk through the previous years at CMA Live finding out what was hot and what was… Nah we’re all incredibly hot, this is CMA Live BAYBAY!
Back in the 2014’s / 15’s things were…well…
Tweed jackets and pale shirts. There’s definitely a bit of denim in there too. Very ‘Top Gear’.
This is an old time classic. Switch out the man shirt for a ‘nice top’ and a pair of skinny jeans at it’s the ladies alternative. Perfect for ticking that ‘smart-casual’ box.
Moving on…to CMA Live 2016
It’s all about the patterned shift dress. Simple but effective. And it ensures that you don’t overheat. I’m a MAJOR fan of a shift, it’s perfect for hiding the post baby tum! I’ll likely be sporting one this year.
There was a heavy waistcoat theme in 2016 which I personally LOVE on a dude, a nicely fitted waistcoat pulls you in on all the right places, keeps your sharp and is a perfect alternative for a full jacket. Especially in this HEAT! All in all sexy AF.
There’s one man, who has attended every CMA event we’ve had going and dresses outstandingly. Every. Single. Time.
Let’s give him a title worth fighting for this year, yeah?
2017 and things get proper boosted…
Our very own CMA Live designer Col Gray kilted up for the occasion. I mean who doesn’t love a kilt, right Natalie?
And of course we had our mega fans reppin’ their brand new CMA Live T-shirts.
But it’s not all about the clothes – we’re talking shoes. Especially on the stage. Pam never fails on the dress or shoe front – amazing style.
So what’s it gonna be this year guys?
All out ballgowns? Or just keepin’ it fresh, bonnie wee summer dress or a CMA Tee…
One key thing to remember is, is Thursdays attire fit for the last night unofficial piece bag?
Whatever you are or are not wearing, we want to know.
All My CMALove,
