Why we're obsessed with Taylor Swift

Our thoughts on plaid have been a bit mixed up until now — it can so easily go from good to tacky, after all —but Taylor's outfit has, dare we say it, transformed our opinion of the print. Thanks to a preppy collar and a subdued color, this dress has swiftly made its way onto our crush list.

How to style the look

Black tights and heels are of course a must for this look, but the statement bag is what really pulls the whole ensemble together, so go ahead and break out your most killer purse and walk confidently ahead, stylish lady.
