Taylor Swift has proven to be a style chameleon throughout her decade-long career. We first met the blonde beauty as country music's sweetheart, who rocked long curly tresses and princess dresses. As she dropped more chart-topping albums, Taylor soon crossed over to become a full-fledged pop star -- serving major fashion moments in a range of styles from elegant designer gowns to sexy bodysuits and beauty looks from her signature red lips to edgy smoky eyes. After listening repeatedly to her surprise 8th album, folklore, in July 2020, we needed to go down memory lane to see Taylor's style evolution.
For her surprise appearance at the 2020 NME Awards in February 2020, the "You Need to Calm Down" singer rocked a sassy, two-toned pinstripe short suit by Monse. She accessorized with white lace-up booties by Gianvito Rossi, a Jimmy Choo bag, earrings by Lorraine Schwartz and rings by EF Collection, finishing off her look with red lips and her hair pulled back into a chic, braided style.
Taylor suited up in a belted, sleeveless plaid jumpsuit and matching coat for the Miss Americana documentary premiere during the 2020 Sundance Film Festival.
For the world premiere of Cats in New York City in December 2019, the "Me!" singer pulled out all the stops with this gorgeous floor-length, ruby-and-burgundy Oscar de la Renta dress. She accessorized with Maxior drop earrings and a Borgioni double ring and completed the look by wearing her hair up with just a few tendrils framing her bangs and a bold red lip.
The Icon Award recipient rocked a colorful printed Versace ensemble of plunging bodysuit, jacket and shorts at the 2019 Teen Choice Awards in Hermosa Beach, California.
