In honor of the country superstar’s birthday, we’re celebrating 23 years of Swift style, with look at her fashion evolution throughout her career.
She may be one of country’s biggest stars, but Swift has a look that’s anything but country. And while the fresh-faced singer has made a career out of singing about her past romances, when it comes to her style, she’s not looking back.
Swift started walking the red carpet in her teens, and, while she’s always had an eye for fashion, she’s certainly stepped it up in her twenties. Still, the singer has stayed true to her whimsical, girly style as she’s grown both professional and sartorially.
Though the pop star will strut the red carpet in a pair of sky-high stilettos, she still dons Keds (she’s even designing a line for the classic sneaker brand) and her kitschy kitty ballet flats.
The signature tight ringlets of her teen years have given away to more grown-up ‘dos as well. Swift may not have deviated from her sparkly red carpet style much in the past few years, but she’s experimented with her hair, mixing in a side pony or straight sleek ‘do into the mix. And she’s traded in her lip-gloss for red lips.
In the last year, Swift’s style has gotten more sophisticated and adventurous as well. The singing sensation has mixed it up on the red carpet in everything from long shimmery gowns to sleek pantsuits and sexy mini-dresses.
All the birthday girl’s recent experimentation has been paying off. Swift has already begun to hone in on her signature red carpet style without ever boring us, with her glam-girly style.
We can’t wait to see how Swift’s style continues to evolve this year, but in honor of her 23rd birthday, take a look at how far she’s come since she first stepped onto the style stage.
