style: summer outfits inspired by country music's leading ladies

In case you couldn't tell, I REALLY enjoyed creating yesterday's style board in honor of the queens of country music.  Several of today's stars were represented in the Hall of Fame's museum, including Carrie Underwood, Miranda Lambert, and Taylor Swift... which got me thinking, which of today's leading ladies of country will be the Hall of Fame members of tomorrow?  And, more importantly, how can I dress like they do?

Carrie Underwood's costumes from the "Blown Away" tour are currently on display at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.  They are glamorous and mysterious, almost like something from a fantasy or science fiction movie.  I have heard that her concerts are amazing, and I can understand why.  I can see her wearing this ModCloth one-shoulder dress, drop earrings, glittery pumps, and Juicy Couture geometic cuff from ShopBop (similar from ShopAkira).  All that's missing is a blinged-out microphone.

Miranda Lambert is my country-girl idol, and this outfit was inspired by her quote, "I'll never dance around on stage in a halter top. I will always play my guitar" as well as the homemade baseball cap she donated to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, which has a picture of her idol, Merle Haggard.  I chose a Merle tee from E-Bay and Current/Elliott cutoffs from The Outnet (similar from Tilly's) with a Fossil tri-tone bracelet from Macy's and Resistol boots from Country Outfitter.  The pistol necklace from Etsy is a nod to her side project, the Pistol Annies.

Kimberly Schlapman is one-fourth of Little Big Town and hosts her own cooking show on GAC.  Her style is really cool and current and she's not afraid to try trends, so I think she'd be happy in a J. Crew Factory chambray shirt, Newlook lace skater skirt, and Sam Edelman animal-print sandals from JulesB with a bright red Monsoon clutch.

Taylor Swift has a really unique personal style that was fun to base an outfit around.  I paired a Breton stiped tee from Calypso-Celle (similar from Jack Wills) with an AX denim skater skirt from The Hut, then accessorized with Ray-Ban Wayfarer sunglasses from Piperlime (similar from Forever21), red lipstick from Cover Girl, red Converse Chuck Taylor sneakers from Finish Line, and a Kate Spade composition book tablet cover.

Hillary Scott from Lady Antebellum is currently rocking the maternity wear and has been wearing a lot of black, so I paired a Miss Selfridge moto jacket (similar from Topshop) with a Merona lace-sleeved top from Target and Liz Lange for Target leggings.  Merona flats, Jane Hollinger drop earrings from Ylang23 (similar from Bluefly), and OPI nail polish in "Lincoln Park After Dark" complete an edgy-meets-glam look.

Jennifer Nettles from Sugarland is very free spirited onstage and her songs are full of heart.  I chose a True Religion tee from Stylebop (similar tees available from Tilly's here and here), topped it with an American Eagle fringed vest, and added a pair of Diesel flares from Farfetch (similar from Mango).  This outfit was begging for a Lucky Brand necklace, and I'm a little bit in love with the Wanted red ankle boots from Amazon.
