Taylor Swift aced a tricky transition from country to pop, and then took the genre by storm. Widely considered one of the most successful female pop artists of all time, this girl has a hold on our hearts. Of course, we love Taylor for more than just her voice: her style evolution has inspired a generation. From sparkly ballgowns to power jumpsuits to classic fit-and-flare dresses, Taylor Swift’s red carpet fashion has always been iconic. If you have a fancy event coming up (prom, maybe?) and are looking to channel her girl-power style, we’ve got great suggestions. (Sorry Tom, no “I ❤ T.S.” tanks here!)
get bold and go red
Taylor’s Grammy-nominated album Red and her subsequent tour provided us dozens of steal-worthy looks. She wore a stunning red Elie Saab gown to the 2012 Billboard Music Awards in Vegas. Sexy cutouts, a gorgeous lace inset, and a bold color? We’ve been swooning ever since.
Steal the look with this Morgan & Co. Power Mesh Illusion Gown. With a plunging neckline and flirty mesh cutouts, you’re guaranteed to look like a star. And if your ex will be at this party too, well… nothing says “we are never ever getting back together” like having the time of your life while rocking this killer look.
keep it classy and classic
When Taylor moved to New York in 2014, she kicked her style up a notch. At the Country Music Awards just a month after her move, she wore an amazing two-piece J.Mendel Silk Crepe Ivory Top and Noir Asymmetrical Skirt. The classic black-and-white combo paired with her old Hollywood hair is classy and powerful. After all, this is around the same time that she took on Apple (and won) and made Forbes’ 100 Most Powerful Women list. Girl power. We’re here for it.
Steal the look with this XOXO Crepe Cold Shoulder Jumpsuit. Seriously, the comeback of jumpsuits has been a blessing for anyone wanting to look fierce and be comfortable. This one has cute, feminine shoulder detail, and those wide leg pants are begging to be shown off with strappy heels. This outfit might not get you on Forbes’ list, but it puts you at #1 in our book.
they say a tiger never changes its stripes…
And Taylor never strays too far from this timeless look. She’s rocked them on full-sleeve shirts and on swimsuits, and the striped Kate Spade dress she wore to KIIS FM’s annual Jingle Ball is no exception.
Steal this look with this Nine West Lace Fit n’ Flare Dress. Fit n’ flare silhouettes are flattering on everybody, and the full skirt on this number will have you twirling all night. It’s clean and casual, perfect for a party or a date (if, like Taylor, you land one with Harry Styles, promise to let us know.)
Our favorite thing about Taylor’s style? That she wears what she wants. She’s not afraid to get a little daring, or to fall back on tried-and-true hits. And of course, her accessories are always on-point. But since we can’t all accessorize with a casual Grammy or two (or, ya know, 10), hit up our accessories store and fit the perfect accent that’ll have you looking as fly as T. Swizzle herself.
