Used to wearing your Turkey Day sweats to make room for the pumpkin pie binge, but this year you are looking for that perfect party dress to meet the boyfriend’s fam? You want to look sophisticated and appropriate without skimping on the beautiful. We hear you. It’s easy to imagine but often hard to accomplish.
Fortunately, [lastfm]Taylor Swift [/lastfm]whipped out a 1950s-inspired outfit for the BBC Radio 1 Teen Awards that we think is perfect for every body type and every upcoming occasion. Check out where you can get similar wardrobe pieces so that your man won’t hesitate to say “you belong to me.”
Taylor Swift’s gorgeous 1950’s style all-lace cream tea party dress is probably vintage (or really expensive designer) but you can copy almost the same sentiment with this vintage-inspired puff sleeve cream dress from Free People. At $118, it’s probably a fraction of the price of Swift’s dress–and just as cute! Get it here at Karmaloop: http://www.karmaloop.com/Products.aspx?ProductID=130918&VendorCode=FRP
Not one to get too girlie without a splash of edge, Taylor Swift is wearing a distressed metallic skinny belt. We couldn’t find an exact replica but we love this cream leather skinny belt with gold studs from ASOS. And we think Taylor would approve.
Digging Taytay’s uber-comfortable 1950s-style brown lace-up librarian-style mary-janes? Get these be-ribboned, cork-heeled beauties at Mod Cloth. If you don’t like the ribbon and want to go a more simplistic route, just replace the ribbons with brown leather! http://www.modcloth.com/store/ModCloth/Womens/Shoes/Heels/Maple+Crepe+Heel
Last but not least, is Taylor Swift’s hair and make-up. Taylor always looks properly put together with retro-red lips (kind of like an understated Dita Von Tease) and old-school finger waves.
