How to Dress Like Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift Inspired Outfit Blouse and Skirt
Taylor Swift is one of my favorite artists of all time, and her style is always on point and super consistently feminine. She's done a great job in not just defining her musical image, but also her style in terms of sticking to a uniform of cute top + high-waisted short skirt + high heels + vintage purse. My girl Taylor's been getting some heat lately around the phone call with he-who-must-not-be-named, so I thought I would do a post to show my support towards Taylor and my undying and stronger than ever fandom. You're in for a treat today as I'll be showing not one, but two outfits inspired by her style. That just shows how much I adore her!

Off-the-Shoulder Romantic Boho Dress

Off the Shoulder Maxi Dress & Chloe Bag

How pretty is this off-the-shoulder dress from Sammy Dress? I've been obsessed with the off-the-shoulder trend lately, as you might have gathered from the off-the-shoulder top I wore a few weeks ago, and now with this romantic maxi dress. I scored the dress from one of those Asian websites with ridiculously affordable prices that makes you question the quality, this time a site called Sammy Dress. The shopping experience was a bit overwhelming as there are just so many items to browse and choose from, but once I settled on this dress it was pretty seamless in terms of choosing a size (either S or M) and receiving the item. The package came within 2 weeks of placing the order, which is not bad considering it shipped from Asia.

A Trendy Alternative to the Little Black Dress

Boho Chic Little Black Romper

Little Black Romper and Fringe Kimono
If you're looking for a fun and trendy alternative to the little black dress, a polished little black romper is a great way to go. A romper is inherently more casual than a dress, allows for more freedom and movement, and is sure to standout amongst a sea of dresses. If you're looking for a dressier piece, I suggest materials such as mesh, silk and chiffon, which add a look of sophistication. The piece I'm wearing here is from LF a few years ago during their annual summer sale, and works for both a casual summer day and a night out at the local bar.

Denim Culottes with a Hint of Quirkiness

Denim Culottes and Feminine Pink Blouse

Denim Culottes and Vintage Pink Blouse

Rose Gold Kate Spade Bracelet

One of my favorite trends this year is culotte pants, and I especially love this light denim pair from COS that I managed to score on sale. I admit I've been a late adopter of the culotte trend, but once I got my first pair in this post, I couldn't stop! The style is a perfect mix length for warmer weather, and can be easily paired with any type of blouse, t-shirt, or crop top.
