In the midst of a worldwide tour celebrating her 19-year impact on the cultural zeitgeist, Taylor Swift has entered a whole new era: her preppy era. On 26 June, the singer stepped out for a stroll in New York City while wearing a pleated miniskirt and an oversized button-up shirt. In recent months, Swift's street style moments have ranged from breezy Ralph Lauren co-ord sets to shredded denim shorts and sandals. Her latest look, though, is decidedly on par with the outfits worn by typical NYC college students, and the wardrobe refresh has us raiding our closets to re-create the ensemble immediately.
Swift's full style moment featured a striped Sisica Shirt by The Row and a Free People Heartbreaker Skort in the shade Citadel. The cotton skirt is also available in Ivory and Spring Fling pink. She accessorised the look with lugged oxford shoes by Malone Souliers, beige lettuce-trim socks, a Catbird x Phoebe Bridgers "Give You the Moon Charm" necklace, gold jewellery, and red lipstick. She also wore a navy baseball cap that gave the impression she was on her way to her school's home game.
While Swift isn't formally associated with any specific college, we could easily see this outfit working during seminars, campus mixers, or as a go-to look for your morning coffee run before class. We could even see the look pairing well with a college sweatshirt, a letterman jacket, or a cropped tank top in preparation for the warmer weather.
Ahead, see Swift's light academia-inspired ensemble from all angles, and shop her exact Free People skirt while it's still in stock.
