Taylor Swift at Elie Saab at Paris Fashion Week.
We’ve really got to hand it to Taylor Swift: girl has the demure, lady-like look down PAT. She manages to look elegant and girly without ever looking dowdy or like she’s playing dress up, which is unfortunately the trap we see a lot of girls fall into when they’re trying out classic looks. It might just be because she’s so consistent that she’s really figured out what works on her and how to rock it. However, this also means that she can switch up her standby’s, changing one aspect of her usual look, and it’s super surprising, even though everything else is still in her safe zone. We’re referring, of course, to Taylor’s usual color palette of red and white. She switched up her look at this year’s VMA’s by wearing a perfectly tailored white J. Mendel suit, and now she’s been switching it up in Paris by wearing dresses in her go-to A-line, but in the most insanely flattering shade of bluebell. For Elie Saab’s spring 2013 show, Taylor wore a dress, by Saab of course, in said blue, featuring a high neck, super youthful short sleeves, a waist accentuating fitted bodice with ribbon detailing and a just-above the knee hemline. Paired with some killer greige peep toe sandals, loose waves and her signature red lip, dark eyeliner combo, Taylor looks just like herself, but with the tiniest twist.
While we’re totally into Taylor’s classic style, it’s nice to see her switch it up as far as shape and color are concerned. Not like we would ever get bored of her, but we have a sneaking feeling that Tay can rock just about ANY look, and we want her to take some risks!
What do you think of Taylor’s blue dress?
