Forget about summer lovin’ and getting busy down in the sand. ‘Tis the season of the squad. The theme of summer 2015 can best be summed up as “Friendship is magic.” Its ringleader, of course, is none other than Taylor Swift. While she’s carefully curated her squad for years now, it wasn’t until the release of “Bad Blood” and the kickoff of her 1989 World Tour this summer, that everyone and their grandmother began commenting on all the places Taylor Swift takes her gaggle of gal pals (and a few guys).
The hashtag, #Squadgoals, is definitely reaching its saturation point as a cultural phenomenon. Brands have even caught on and are doing things like posting insipid photos of condiments, captioned with the hashtag to market their burgers. File "squad" with "vibes" and "mood" under: buzzwords that need replacements in the very near future. With that in mind, we’re celebrating #squadgoals' last hurrah by curating a scrapbook from Taylor Swift, and her 2015 squad.
Please cue up “That’s What Friends Are For” while you reminisce about all of the places Taylor Swift took her squad this summer. No matter where in the world Swift is, one or more of her friends can’t be far behind — nor can several Instagram photos of the occasion. Let's go!
