Taylor Swift Inspires 5 Best Back-to-School Looks


After putting the world on Red alert by dropping several hints of her newest album on Instagram, the day has finally come.

Taylor Swift will host a live stream of her hotly-anticipated fifth studio album exclusively with Yahoo! starting at 5 p.m. ET / 2 p.m. PT on Monday, August 18.

During the short window of time when the 24-year-old wasn’t slaying the industry with new material, Taylor has been creating noise with her killer outfits.

Her fashion forté goes beyond her commanding red-hot red carpet ensembles. Taylor has dressed down in a variety of preppy, classic looks, which has become an affordable inspiration for fans everywhere.

In anticipation of her new album, check out her 5 best back-to-schools looks below:

1. Plain White Tee and High-Waisted Shorts Combo

In this ensemble, Taylor is dressed down in a white t-shirt with a plunging neckline and a black bowler hat. She complements the look with beige high-waisted shorts that accent her long legs.

2. The 24/365 Summer Look

The “I Knew You Were Trouble” songstress dolled up in a lacy sundress with a simple blue sweater to combat the soothing summer breeze.

3. The Classy-Prep Attire

To make heads turn on your first day of school, draw inspiration from this Instagram video, in which Taylor rocked a semi-formal outfit. She donned a white button-up lined with an eye-popping silver strip. She completed the look with high-waisted shorts, a bowler hat, and her signature red lipstick.

4. The “Second Day of School” Look

After going all out on your first day back with a similar outfit to No. 3, the second day of school should slowly ween you back to a more-casual look. Rather than looking like a bum who pulled an all-nighter for a Calculus exam, dress down in a pair of fun-colored pants and a long sleeve a la Swift.

5. The Sexy Girl Next Door Look


The fashion icon displays the perfect summer back-to-school outfit in her live stream promotional artwork. In the photo, the “22” singer dolls up in a white crop-top with striped high-waisted shorts. Of course, make sure to check your school dress code before you rock out in this.
