Steal the look: Taylor Swift
Singing sweetheart Taylor Swift looks as cute as ever in this free-spirited ensemble. Here's how to steal her spunky look.
The staple of Taylor's outfit is her casual, breezy, striped dress. Since she accents her outfit with so many colorful accessories, she keeps the colors of her dress neutral so that the outfit as a whole is not too busy. For a dress with a similar style, try ASOS' Kookai Stripe Knit Dress, which has a neutral color palette and dark horizontal stripes like Taylor's dress. $91.78 (on sale from $152.97) from ASOS.com.
Taylor gives her outfit a serious burst of color with a golden yellow scarf. ModCloth's Third Rose from the Sun Scarf has a similar yellow hue and sports a red floral pattern like Taylor's. It is a fun, versatile piece that will carry you well into spring and summer. Wear it around your neck or mix it up by tying it to the handle of your bag or wearing it as a headband. $15.99 from ModCloth.com.
Taylor keeps it simple with her footwear with the choice of brown oxford flats. These menswear-inspired lace ups are right on trend so it is well worth investing in a pair for your own wardrobe. Our pick? By far our favorite is Jeffrey Campbell's Wingtip Oxford. With rich leather and gorgeous detailing, these are shoes you'll want to keep around, at a price that is not too hard to swallow. $108 from FreePeople.com.
Taylor gets quirky with the addition of printed purple tights. Tights like these are sure to instantly liven up any outfit! Forever21 has a great selection of tights, including purple patterned ones like Taylor's. Best of all, they come super cheap so you won't regret buying them, even if you can't weave them into many other ensembles. Try their Mesh Burst Tights or Cozy Cable Knit Tights. Both are $6.80 from Forever21.com.
Further mix up the color palette by adding in a bag in a deep green shade as Taylor does here. Anything in a color from a dark green to dark turquoise should achieve a similar effect and work well with the rest of the outfit. We are loving ModCloth's Club House Bag, which has a rich green color, stylish gold hardware and adorable tassel zipper pulls. $59.99 from ModCloth.com.
Give your outfit some extra girlish charm with a pretty headband. J. Crew's Pleated Headband is a nude color with a simple texture like Taylor's. It is a cute, preppy must-have. $16.50 from JCrew.com.
