Taylor Swift’s style evolution charted from her country girl first album to her edgy new look

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift’s radio silence from the world and social media has finally come to an end as she dropped her newest single Look What You Made Me Do on Thursday night.

The 27-year-old singer teased fans with snippets of silent videos in the days leading up to the announcement that her sixth album Reputation will be released on November 2017.

And if the lead track is anything to go on, it looks like Tay Tay has switched up her genre once more, for an edgier sound, following on from 2014’s disco-tinged 1989.

Over the years she’s also evolved her style, going from corkscrew curls and cowboy boots to a wavy bob with crop tops and mini skirts.

If the supposed album cover is anything to go by, we may see Taylor ditch her trademark red lippie for a pared-back look. Watch this space…

Here we chart her fashion album by album.

1. Taylor Swift – 2006

We sang along to 16-year-old Taylor’s first album during our own teen years, relating to her summer romances, break-ups and teardrops on her guitar. Her style at the time, reflected her country sound and her hanky dresses, cowboy boots and corkscrew curls are a far cry from her mini skirts and red lips of today.

2. Fearless – 2008

Songs about heartache have always been a strong theme across Taylor’s back catalogue but her second album Fearless catapulted her into the mainstream. She kept those curls, but we saw her go through a phase of princess-style prom gowns for red carpet events.

3. Speak Now – 2010

Red lipstick became Taylor’s signature look during the release of her third album Red and she started to ditch those long dresses for A-line strapless numbers, retro-looking floral sundresses and short shorts with Breton tops.
