Taylor Swift was born in 1989. We know this from the title of her latest album. But, maybe you didn't know the exact date of said birth: December 13. This Saturday, the singer is celebrating year 25. In honor of a quarter-century of Swift, we're remembering some of her greatest looks from year 24.
Finding herself at a crossroads in her life, Swift did what any twentysomething does: She moved to New York. (We know you've heard about it.) But, she changed much more than her zip code. Taylor used her big move out East to completely revamp her style. She played around with matching sets, brought along her new kitty as an arm piece, and explored the New York shopping scene. Now, her wardrobe looks like that of any New Yorker: sprinkled with Topshop this, & Other Stories that, Steven Alan blouses here, and Rag & Bone booties there. You know, things that never go out of style.
Sartorial renaissance aside, Taylor was killing it professionally when she wasn't shopping down Broadway. New York actually responded to Taylor's ode to her new home, naming her Welcome Ambassador not a year into her residence in the Northeast. All the while, she was working on her fifth studio album, 1989. It spawned songs so catchy you can't get them out of your head; nor can you shake them off.
