Great Outfits: Taylor Swift

Taylor looks like a spy in this outfit, except for her red Gerard Darel "Marilyn" wool hat.

Gold accessories including Jimmy Choo ‘Buzz’ caged sandals and a gold clutch complement her gold sequin bodice dress by Alice + Olivia.

The country singing sensation managed to have some ‘me’ time by checking out the Anthropologie store in New York City yesterday.

We may joking mock her love for embellishments and sequins, but for her off-duty look she loves florals.

On this occasion she opted for a Rebecca Taylor sweet summer dress.

I would’ve been tempted to pair this look with a neutral coloured pair of heels, but Taylor opted for green t-bar wedges.

A white knitted cardi and a floral Gerard Darel bag completed the look.

There was no bling, just beaded details on her Ralph Lauren Collection ivory plisse georgette gown.

Even though we’ve seen this hairstyle a million times before on Taylor, it works perfectly with her look. Ralph Lauren platinum metallic strappy heels and Fred Leighton jewels completed her look.

I think this is the first time in a long that we’ve not seen a single sequin, embellishment or sprinkle of glitter on Taylor Swift on the red carpet.

Girlfriend went cold turkey. We should all be very proud.

The teen singer also surprises us with straight golden locks.

I find the maroon color of her Galliano bustier dress to be very refreshing and beautiful on her.

I hope she continues to surprise us in the future.

Matchy Christian Louboutin Amber Sandals were the perfect finishing touch.

She did look lovely wearing a lavender J. Mendel Spring 2010 dress. The spaghetti strapped chiffon dress has an asymmetrical draping on the skirt. I adore the color on her, plus the floral hair accessory. Nude Christian Louboutin Alta Spritney sandals complete the look.

T did her shopping in a flirty, Bohemian inspired look, pairing a Free People flirty ruffled skirt with a fluttery white v-neck tee cinched with a tan skinny belt. Adding a few quirky touches, Taylor wore her favorite pair of vintage inspired leather Mary Janes and carried a box clutch on a long chain strap, wearing a cute heart shaped locket around her neck. Lastly T added a rhinestone embellished headband, which to me seems to clash with the whole laidback look.

T looks more like she's headed to the beach than on a shopping spree in her embellished tunic dress. Pairing the casual frock with t-strap sandals, Taylor accessorized with a canvas printed tote and a long key necklace. What do you think of T's casual look, would you wear it? I just can't help but love the dress, as it obviously works for a variety of summer occasions from city strolling to playing in the sand.

I wish she were a stronger live singer, but I think almost everyone wishes that for her, probably including her. I also might wish she hadn't worn this. Taylor LOVES a sequin -- and you all know I do too -- and the color is great, but it's doing the funky chicken on her torso and I feel like it's kinda too old for her. I mean, I know the Grammys are a big deal, but they're also THE GRAMMYS, not the Grandmas. (Oh my God, you guys, I'm REALLY SORRY. That was a terrible, terrible pun. I should go back and delete it right now. But I'm too lazy to take it out. Just deal with it.) And yet I feel this is easily salvageable. My fix? Hem the shit out of that thing.

Taylor Swift is floating wearing this stunning lavender Marchesa Spring 2010 gown. This gown is breath-taking from the embroidered details to the long flowing train. The gown was slightly modified on the bodice, as the runway version has more sheer illusions. Also skirt has been lined with a contrasting lilac layer.

It's worse when she's wearing sequins, but still: I know she hasn't worn this pretty lavender hue before, much less the creeping-vines dress, and yet she always seems so familiar. Maybe it's the way she does the updo, maybe it's her stance, maybe it's the fact that I can't tell some of her songs apart (even though many of them are on my iPod). I don't know. Somehow it feels like the fact that she's wearing the garment is incidental to it. I mean, it's THERE, and she is there, but they don't seem connected. Ever. So it's hard to judge the dress's merits. I... THINK it's pretty? But I might want to see it on someone who struts the red carpet with a bit more verve?

I'm loving T's easygoing style here, cinching a white cami with a skinny belt over a tiered skirt. I have mixed feelings about the taupe heels – are they too old lady for her? Taylor completed the 'fit with eclectic accessories, including a long pendant necklace and colorful beaded bracelets. T carried her swag in a black tote and let her trademark blonde curls flow freely. What do you think of her laidback lunching look?

Taylor is ready for spring in her ruffled, navy-and-white spotted Cooperative (get a Urban Outfitters) sundress, hippie headband and favorite Hobo International leather bag.

TS put her layered 'fit together starting with a pretty floral dress with a knit wrap sweater and opaque black tights keeping her gams warm. I love the unexpected cognac heels breaking up the black, as well as the double hoop earrings. For the finishing touch add a little color like Taylor did with A Graves' Sparrow Scarf in Blue.

This little white dress is draped and is sophisticated all year round. A design with a bit of weight to the fabric is a great cold-weather alternative to the LBD.

I am a huge Taylor Swift fan not just her sparkly cute style and music but also for her down-to-earthness, innocence (the girl looks like a virgin sacrifice) and virtuous wisdom. Taylor is like your best friend who you can call when you feel like crap or want to go shopping (for sparkly dresses and high heels maybe!).
