Nashville’s Newest Style Icon? YOU! Launch of StyleBy.Me- Nashville.

StyleBy.Me is Nashville’s newest street style destination where users can showcase their own personal style and find inspiration for future ensembles. As detailed on the company’s user profile, “StyleBy.Me is just that; your style, by you, for you, displayed for your city to see.” StyleBy.Me is a lot like Lookbook.nu. However, unlike Lookbook.nu, which allows users from any city/country to submit self-styled photos, StyleBy.Me is city specific. The company first launched its local lookbook for users of Northwest Arkansas and recently expanded to the Nashville market.
The small company consists of 5 team members; two co-founders, a business development director, a director of photography, and two interns. Co-founder Josh Clemence says “StyleBy.Me… gives the opportunity to aggregate styles down to a local science. Instead of seeing a new style in a magazine or on TV, or posed by a model, you now have a tool that allows you to keep up with local styles and trends.” Speaking specifically to the users of Northwest Arkansas, co-founder Anna Chatelain says, “… I can hardly wait to unveil the inspiring looks that are sure to come to NWA! To date, I have already been in awe of the originality produced from the region.” (Fun fact: Ever wonder what the C in Amber C. stands for? Now you know… Anna is the most recent addition to the Chatelain family. Love it!)

So, how does StyleBy.Me work? According to the company website, interested parties upload photos of their style, can browse through other looks, and have viewers ‘like’ their style. Users submit styles by filling out the ‘Submit Your Style’ form, answering questions like who you are wearing and giving yourself a style title. Now, this isn’t a free for all- there are rules to this! Read more about submission rules here and click here to submit your style.
