Cinq A Sept ‘Estelle One-Button Check Blazer with Embroidery’ – $595.00
Cinq A Sept ‘Eliza Wide Leg Check Pants’ – $395.00

I will need a minute to process the perfect styling moment here and will reserve that once we get some glorious HQs. But in short: This heart-embroidered menswear-inspired suit set is one of the most Taylor and Lover-appropriate lewks we’ve been served this era thus far. 

Performing “False God” on Saturday Night Live | October 5, 2019

Ambush ‘Wool Oversized Belted Blazer’ – $1,595.00 (sold out)

Taylor opted to not wear this oversized womens blazer with its belt. Instead, to add further to the mussed, sensual vibes of the song it’s casually slung and slightly off one shoulder. 

Worn with: Bond Eye Jewelry earrings, Alice + Olivia bodysuit, and Libertine pants

Get the look: Missguided, $59.00

Saturday Night Live promo | October 4, 2019

Gucci ‘Double Breasted Checked Floral Embroidered Blazer Jacket’ – $5,555.00 (sold out)

As part of promo for her upcoming musical appearance on SNL, Taylor rewore her plaid blazer she first wore while doing promotion in France. Nice to see this getting another outing! 

Worn with: Tiffany & Co necklace

Also worn: NRJ Radio

Get the look: BB Dakota, $98.00

Valentino Couture Fall 2019

The pronouncement of those braids and their utilitarian toughness feel even more significant here. Doesn’t this amazing hooded silk piece by Valentino bring to mind a wrestling hooded robe that’s shaken off by the fighter just before entering the ring?

Further, it’ll be a crime if we don’t get more Valentino moments throughout this era. And while we’re at it, I’d also like to throw Prada, Chloé, and Rodarte as other Lover-worthy brand suggestions.

Shawn Mendes ‘Tour Sketch Tie Dye Hoodie’ – $85.00

Giving Todrick the nails, hair, hips, heels treatment to prepare for their opening performance together, Taylor rewore her Shawn Mendes hoodie from when she arrived at the TCAs. 

Also worn: Arriving at the Teen Choice Awards

Performing “You Need To Calm Down” + “Lover” | August 26, 2019

Versace custom ensemble

To continue the theme of all things Versace, her performance ensemble was also a custom piece by the Italian fashion house. The purple and gold combination screams royalty, no? 

Worn with: Kallati earrings + Brumani and Misahara rings + Versace necklaces, bracelets, and rings, and Christian Louboutin boots

Versace Spring 2020 

Combining many elements across a few Versace collections (the sequins from the pictured SS2020 collection, the button front from Fall 2019, buckle motif from Resort 2020) tells me that this might be a custom piece. 

Either way, it’s an interesting back-to-back slideshow take that harkens immediately to Taylor’s most recent red carpet appearance at the Teen Choice Awards. I’m someone who can appreciate consistency and creating a cohesive aesthetic, but the same brand, similar pattern, one look after another? It feels like a missed opportunity to try something different. 

That said, I do feel this is a significant improvement over the TCAs. The bodysuit underneath is much more complementary to the blazer and I would not decline being stepped on with those slim heel OTK boots.
