Taylor Swift Inspired Lookbook | Red, White and Black for Fall 2012

Like most fashion-obsessed women, I've always used celebrity style as inspiration for my everyday looks. While I couldn't take much from the skin-tight body suits and over-embellished fabrics at the 2012 MTV VMAs, I found myself drawn to Taylor Swift's simple, yet bold nautical red/white tee paired with black hot pants...

 ...maybe it's because I've always loved and worn this color palette in fall or maybe it's because it wasn't a dress awkwardly paired with tall cowboy boots. Either way, the lanky blonde with mediocre singing talent inspired the hell out of me so I thought I'd share a few looks I styled based on what she wore for her exceptionally cute Glee-like performance.

Look 1
Boyish


twist scarf...American Apparel
shirt...vintage
eel skin leggings...American Apparel
sneakers...Keds 

Look 2 
Rockstar Chic


{make up: MAC carbon base with Stila's In the Garden palette shadows "bark" and "moss"; Mary Kay's Apple Berry lipstick}

shawl...American Apparel
tank...Forever 21
leggings...American Apparel and DIY
shoes and bangles...Urban outfitters
 
Look 3 
My Version of Taylor's look
Thinner stripes and vintage-wash red cowboy short boots instead of Louboutin oxfords
 I might drop by Urban Outfitters to see if I can snag a pair of her shorts though.
{make up: a brassy smokey eye using Lancome Ombre Effects Sensationnels palette "sparkling brown" and Stila's "honey" in the tear duct with Revlon Candy Apple lip butter}
leather bow...American Apparel
shirt...Forever 21
leather shorts...Olsenboye (YUP, at JCPenny)
boots...Lucky Brand

Okay, so it's not like that little bitch invented wearing red, white and black, but dammit, she wore it well.
 ...and this song is officially my new jam.
