Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce are the fall season’s new It couple. Over the weekend of Oct. 14, the pop songstress and her tight end beau took New York by storm. And as the fashion queen she is, Swift (and Kelce, TBH) did it in style, featuring some of the fall season’s hottest trends in her date night outfits.
Swift and Kelce were first spotted on Oct.14 canoodling at Nobu for dinner before going to film their separate cameos for the Saturday Night Live Season 49 premiere. Afterward, they attended the SNL afterparty at Catch Steak. Then, on Oct. 15, the pair had a second date night — they were seen outside the Waverly Inn restaurant in New York. They packed on the PDA all weekend, and Swift’s fashion choices packed on the trendy style. The entire weekend, Swift sported belly-baring corsets and sheer tops. I, as much as anybody, know that corsets can be worn all year round. They’re so versatile and can be thrown on with an oversized coat for a sophisticated look.
On Oct.15, Swift was très chic in a Jean Paul Gautier sheer top and a leather mini skirt. Whether you’re a short-and-sheer type of girl or more into pants and corsets, I’ve got date-night approved outfits inspired by the Eras queen herself. The fall weather may call for you to bundle up, but date night is always reserved to show out in your best looks!
1. Taylor’s Oct. 14 Date NIght look
This is by far my favorite look from Swift’s weekend — a black corset, black pants, and a long houndstooth coat. It was a sultry take on businesswear, which I adore. To recreate, try Miss Circle’s Tristyn Black Crystal Strap Corset Top ($80) or Kolgari Women’s Vintage Bustier Top ($30). For pants, I love Cider’s Solid Stitch Straight Leg Trousers ($32) because they come in an array of colors that are splendid for the office or a night at your favorite restaurant. As I’ve said before, corsets are made for even the chilliest weather; all you need is an oversized coat, and Swift’s choice was a true showstopper. SHEIN’s Essnce Plaid Print Lapel Neck Overcoat ($30) will give you the same put-together look. Last, but certainly not the least, a pair of killer heels will always set the tone for a great night. Nine West’s Loola Ankle Strap Sandals ($70) are the perfect addition to any look you may choose!
2. Swift’s Oct. 15 Date Night look
Who doesn’t love a good sheer look every once in a while?! Swift’s Jean Paul Gautier top may be a bit of a splurge, but I’ve got two options that are just as fab! This Fashion Nova Venus Floral Mesh top ($16) and Ladies Street Tropical Long Sleeve Mesh Crop Top ($20) are both truly groundbreaking. The year 2023 has also seen a resurgence of the mini skirt, and I love it! This Abercrombie & Fitch Vegan Leather Mini Skort ($60) and Zara’s Faux Leather Mini Skirt ($40) are both grunge-tastic. Don’t forget to tie this look together with a pair of heeled boots. Fashion Nova’s Wait a Bit Longer Booties ($30) will be the best statement you ever make!
