How To DIY An Evolution Of Taylor Swift Halloween Costume

October 12, 2017 by Lisa Fogarty
shefinds | Homepage

In just a few short years, Taylor Swift has been a million different people and she owes it all to the incredible fearlessness she has when it comes to allowing her style to evolve. The Look What You Made Me Do pop singer traces her roots back to country music, and she had the long blonde ringlets and cowboy boots to prove it. Not content to be pigeonholed in one category, she changed up her image when launching her pop career and experimented with ladylike silhouettes and short-shorts and loafers combos that can only be described as all kinds of adorable.

And then, of course, she chopped off her hair and Swift’s style evolution really took off.

There’s no stopping the singer when it comes to playing around with her looks and trying on everything from a goth persona to a (literal) circus ringmaster. If you’re thinking of DIY-ing a Taylor Swift Halloween costume, the good news is you have plenty of looks from which to choose. Instead of selecting a straight-up Swift circa 2017 style pulled straight from her newest album Reputation, why not change things up and create a look that pays homage to several Swift style phases from throughout the years? Here are some key pieces you’ll need.

1) A Long, Blonde Wig

Given Swift’s hair style changes over the past decade, you have quite a few wigs that could work on Halloween — anything from a sleek blonde bob to that bleach blonde Coachella experiment a few years back could work. But we have to go with Swift’s original signature hairstyle: a super-long mane of curly blonde ringlets that is the envy of every girl in country music.  Combining this wig with more modern Swift ensembles will drive home the point that you aren’t just Taylor Swift this Halloween — you’re every version of Taylor Swift.

2) Cowboy Boots

Like long, curly hair, cowboy boots were one of Swift’s earliest style trademarks. She seems to favor cute flats and striking heels over boots these days, but there was a time when Swift wore these bad boys with a handkerchief hem halter dress at the 41st Annual Academy of Country Music Awards and then again one year later with a sparkly teal formal dress while performing on stage.

3) The Ringmaster Costume

Swift saves her cutest, most iconic outfits for her tours and videos. And this one — a classic ringmaster costume that she wore in 2012 to promote her Red album — made certain the world knew that she was in charge. When you’re honoring a star who has her legs insured for $40 million, you should definitely plan on showing yours off, too.

4) Heart-Shaped Glasses

Remember Swift’s 22 music video? It may not go down in history as her most popular vid, but there are more than a few style choices from the set that you can steal for Halloween. And none are more iconic than this pair of red heart-shaped sunglasses, which seem to scream “Taylor!”

5) Classic Red Lipstick

Maybelline Are You Red-dy lipstick

Red lipstick is to Taylor Swift as contouring is to Kim Kardashian. No Swift Halloween costume is complete with it — and this tube by Maybelline called Are You Red-dy is perfection.
