Swift style!

2bd2c_street-style-star-taylor-swift-600x450

You have to admit Ms. Swift certainly has style.

I have never posted about celebrities or style icons before but I think it’s time I gave it a go because I’ve been raving over Taylor Swift’s effortless chic looks for over a month now. How is it that she looks so prim and proper, stylishly chic and perfect every single time she steps out?

A – She has a very good sense of style

B – She has a personal stylist who has a very good sense of style

Yep, those are my only two possibilities for her looking so fabulous. But on a honest note, what she wears are chic pieces of clothing put together in the best way possible.

Let’s take the above image of her for example. She’s only wearing two items of clothing – a dress and a pair of leggings. Why the complete outfit looks so great on her is also because of multiple reasons. One being that she’s going with autumn colours. Two being the dress cut is so cute and fits her perfectly. The little collar and belt at the waist adds to the overall look. Three, a contrasting bag to go with it. Effortless really if you think about it.

Now here’s a completely different look on Swift. Going all black with this outfit, we’re looking at staple pieces of clothing. A pair of black leggings, a black flaired mini skirt and an edgy black leather jacket. She completely tones down the outfit with a black bag to top it off.

Want an extremely casual look? She tops that too! Who doesn’t own a pair of white-washed skinny jeans? Who doesn’t own a plaid or checkered shirt? Yep, that’s just about it that completes this uber casual outfit for Swift. Oki, I cannot ignore the super cool pair of shoes and red cross body bag but let’s look at the clothing yeah? It’s all basics once again. Who doesn’t own basics? Of course you do, and of course you can pull off this outfit with an equal amount of oomph as she does!

What’s a look without trying to be a little daring at the same time? Who would have thought maroon, yellow and blue would go so well? It does on Taylor Swift so it should look good on us too right? Right?

I love this outfit because of the mixed and matched up colours. And that hat does it all for me. I’d think she’d look a bit silly without it and of course that bag is to die for! If you haven’t got a plaid jacket like that one, you better run looking for one right away!

Can I just say that I don’t know how she does it?

Florals have been a rave since spring and here’s Ms. Swift wearing it on an autumn day! It’s all about accentuating the best parts of your body and in her case, that’s her long slender legs and tiny waist. Keeping it light and simple, her blue and white floral dress is paired with a nude bag and equally gorgeous nude pair of heels.

Taylor Swift has a Sophisticated Sunday

If you’re looking for a more sophisticated look, here’s inspiration. How perfectly chic does she look! Pencil skirts should be a staple for a working woman and this navy one fits Swift like a glove. The cropped printed shirt highlights her tiny waist but in the best way possible and to perk things up a bit than usual, she’s paired it with her red cross body bag. Easy peasy!

Overall I think it’s easy to look at her sense of style and be able to copy that in to your every day look. For me, it might be a tad difficult especially when the weather is very tropical and I also wear a shawl (scarf) at all times and nothing revealing. I do however find her outfits very inspirational and wouldn’t mind adding a legging or bolero to an outfit when needed.

Saturday night out look

My look

With Japanese on the menu for our Saturday night out, I decided to keep my look minimalistic. 

My knee length black and white kurta was something I purchased a while back from India but had only worn it on a few occasions. I paired it with a black pair of leggings and chiffon shawl. It’s got pretty bead work down the front as can be see in the picture above.  The sleeves have a bit of red and bit morw bead work that give it an interesting look. On my feet are a casual pair of black kitten heels I got as a gift.

Happy Sunday all! 🙂
