Taylor Swift has been a popular figure in the entertainment industry since the mid-2000s, but she really began to make headlines for her unique street style in the 2010s.
In November 2011, during a trip to New York City, Taylor Swift wore a navy cable-knit sweater from Ralph Lauren tucked into a pleated yellow skirt from ModCloth for a scholarly look. She completed the outfit with magenta kitten heels from Marc Jacobs, red lipstick, and a blue Fendi purse that matched the sparkling number 13 drawn on her hand. The year 2014 was a significant one for Swift’s fashion choices as she led up to the release of her album “1989.”
During that time, she preferred wearing crop tops and mini skirts, such as this gray two-piece set from Alice + Olivia. However, what really made her outfits stand out were her accessories. She donned bright pink pumps by Christian Louboutin and carried a yellow version of Dolce & Gabbana’s Linda Tote bag. She also had fun experimenting with unconventional accessories that year, including her cat Olivia.
On a pleasant September day in New York City, she was seen carrying her cat while sporting a classic preppy look. Her outfit consisted of a white Free People top with lace sleeves tucked into a plaid skirt from RD Style and maroon sheer knee-highs from Tabbisocks. To complete the ensemble, Swift wore black loafers from & Other Stories and carried a green Dolce & Gabbana bag. It’s worth noting that standout coats have always been a fashion staple for Swift, and they also played a significant role in her “1989” wardrobe.
Swift was spotted spending time with Karlie Kloss in New York City, less than a month after releasing her fifth studio album. She was dressed in a little black dress under a tan tattersall coat, sheer polka-dot tights, and lace-up heeled Oxfords, while carrying a burgundy purse and sporting a thin gold headband with a small bow. In 2015, Swift had switched to wearing tank tops and tailored shorts.
In May 2015, Swift opted for a casual yet chic look by pairing an open-back tank top from Zara with printed black-and-white shorts from River Island. To add a pop of color, she rocked blue patent-leather heels from Pedro Garcia and accessorized with Swarovski sunglasses and a Mary Katrantzou bag. However, in 2016, Swift briefly experimented with a rocker style for her street fashion.
The musician not only changed her hairstyle from long locks to a bleached bob but also experimented with edgier clothing for a short period. In May 2016, she was seen leaving a gathering at Anna Wintour’s home wearing a plaid Louis Vuitton dress, paired with chunky boots and a leather jacket, both from the fashion house. As for accessories, she only carried a small black purse designed by Mark Cross. However, she eventually returned to vibrant colors and denim garments.
In August of 2016, Taylor Swift strolled around New York City wearing a pink tank top from Brandy Melville under a denim dress in an overall style from Tularosa. She accessorized with a black Marni handbag and Gucci sneakers with a flower print. Additionally, she hinted at her glamorous red-carpet style with her nighttime looks.
In September 2016, Taylor Swift was spotted wearing a black V-neck bodysuit from Aritzia underneath a white mini skirt from Related Apparel. However, what really caught attention were her accessories. Swift paired the outfit with strappy sandals from Louise et Cie, a tan clutch by Aspinal of London, and a white choker necklace from Adornmonde. A few days later, she sported one of her most vibrant looks during her bleach blonde hair era.
The long-sleeved bodysuit she donned was from PH5, while her burgundy pleated miniskirt was from Urban Outfitters. She paired both pieces with Michael Kors sunglasses, a Burberry bag, and platform velvet sandals from Aquazzura. During the summer of 2018, Swift’s street style began to reflect the shift from her “Reputation” album cycle to that of “Lover.”
In July of that same year, she was captured on camera wearing a pin-striped shirt from Unravel Project, which was hanging off one shoulder, and distressed denim shorts from Gucci. Her casual outfit complemented the dark aesthetic of her sixth studio album, as did her black leather Tod’s boots and Tommy Hilfiger bag. However, she hinted at the colorful era to come with her vibrant lipstick, wavy hair, and Miu Miu earrings. Swift fully embraced the more vibrant side of her style in 2019.
Just a few days before releasing her latest hit song “ME!”, Taylor Swift was spotted in New York City wearing one of her most unique outfits yet. The ensemble included a floral Zimmermann dress, a red Mango blazer, and Rupert Sanderson sandals. However, the highlights of Swift’s outfit were her pink-tinted hair and her cat-printed purse from Anya Hindmarch. In her most recent appearance, the “Midnights” musician dressed up a simple summer dress with luxurious jewelry.
In late May, Taylor Swift was seen outside Electric Lady Studios in New York City after performing three sold-out shows at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. The singer sported a black cotton dress with a black belt around the waist, $450 Waylon slide sandals from Anine Bing, $200 Indio sunglasses from the same brand, and a brown version of the $895 M Frame Box Bag from Mansur Gavriel. However, the most impressive accessory was Swift’s gold, diamond-encrusted Cartier necklace from the 1980s, called the Agrafe Herringbone Twisted Necklace. Although no longer produced, one recently sold for $27,250 on 1stDibs, an online luxury marketplace.
