Fact: Taylor Swift looooves to play dress-up. Whether it’s celebrating Shirley MacLaine’s birthday in white frocks and floral crowns or busting out the face paint with her friends, the singer’s always up for a fashion show. So is it any surprise, then, that she majorly upped her style game in the new music video for “Both Of Us”? Taylor’s irristable collab with B.O.B. premiered on MTV this morning, and, in the video she changes outfits a whopping 10 times. From overalls to sheer blouses to trademark Taylor floral sundresses, we’re breaking down “Both Of Us,” look by look.

The clip opens in a Nashville saloon, where Taylor’s sporting appropriately Southern-inspired (and totally on-trend, we might add…) short denim overalls over a graphic t-shirt. With her hair pulled back into a messy bun (and hellooo bangs!), it’s a casual look for the singer, who we’re used to seeing in ditsy dresses and retro-inspired wares. But given the song’s eclectic mishmash of hip hop, country, and pop, her opening outfit is a perfect intro to the rest of the brooding vid…and the wardrobe change-ups to come.

You didn’t think Taylor had REALLY gone tomboy, did you? No way. She’s back to her girly self in the next look, in a navy polka dot blouse, glammed-up eyes and cherry red lips. But pay close attention, because this outfit change-up lasts about 3 seconds- don’t blink or you’ll miss it!

Next up, Tay’s frolicking in a field with a puppy and sporting a photo-print tank and white skirt. It’s casual, girly, and totally cute- in other words, it’s pretty much how we always imagine Taylor dresses at home in Tennessee.

Finally, a scene with B.O.B! The twosome don’t share much screentime in the video, so we’re thrilled to catch the duo hanging out together. They’re a study in contrasts, with Taylor wearing a frilly white sundress and B.O.B. rocking a basic black jacket. Hey, they say opposites attract, right?!

Here’s another split-second shot of Tay pensively looking in the window, wearing a retro-inspired white blouse with floral embellishment on the collar. Oh, and she’s swapped out her high ponytail and gone back to the messy bun. Iiiiinteresting….

Considering Taylor changes outfits 10 times throughout the 3-minute video, that doesn’t leave us much time to focus on her makeup choices. We score a rare close-up here, where she’s sprawled out across the couch in a lacy white top. Her long bangs and barefaced beauty remind us of that epic February VOGUE cover, and we’re SO glad she took the plunge with the brow-skimming fringe.

DIY, anyone? She’s no stranger to arts and crafts, and now Taylor sports a ’80s-inspired off-the-shoulder sweater that looks like she cut herself. She pairs it with shorts, a printed tank top, and tops the whole look off with a knowing backward glance.

Wow, now this is different! The singer is serious throughout most of the moody video, but here Taylor’s laughing AND wearing an equally cheery outfit. Check out that sheer short-sleeved cropped blouse over a floral bra top. It’s totally daring and unexpected, which is exactly why we love it.

Things are winding down, and Taylor’s chilling on the porch with B.O.B. Her chambray top might be casual, but she’s blinged the summertime staple up a bit with dangly star earrings and a bunch of bracelets.

Phew, still with us here? Nine outfits later, we’re finally at our last look! It’s a quick close-up shot of Taylor in a basic heather gray sleeveless t-shirt, clutching an Art Deco-inspired pendant necklace and showing off her turquoise and silver rings. Even though the cotton top alone might shout ’gym class,’ the jewelry proves it’s all in the details.

10 outfits in under 4 minutes? Let’s just say we’ve reached a whole new level of respect for Taylor Swift, who’s managed to cram some serious style into an ultra short time frame. Check out the video for yourself below, and tell us- which look is your favorite?
