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.
twist scarf...American Apparel

leggings...American Apparel and DIY
shoes and bangles...Urban outfitters
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.
leather bow...American Apparel
leather shorts...Olsenboye (YUP, at JCPenny)
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.
