Taylor Swift Style - 2016 MTV VMAs
Taylor in all likelihood will not be attending tonight’s ceremony for the MTV VMAs, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have some fashion fun and guess what she could have worn as if she was!
Given that this is a summer music awards show, I thought that colourful, short, and slightly risqué was the perfect route to take. Given Taylor’s track record at this event, something a little less-than-expected wouldn’t entirely be unexpected ;)
Let’s break it down!
- Fausto Puglisi Fall 2016
I could easily see Taylor styling this with the runway’s edgy leather booties, but my preferred styling would be a yellow or aqua pair of strappy, knee-high lace up heels and a metallic starfish or sea-themed clutch would make this a fun look.
- David Koma Resort 2017
If you’ve been following TSS for awhile, in addition to green being my favourite colour on Taylor, generally I’m always a sucker for a blonde wearing yellow or orange. Being a personal fan of the David Koma brand, and considering Taylor’s penchant for crop tops, this would be a great blend of citrus-y colour and Taylor’s lately favoured silhouette (though done in a slightly more sophisticated way). I’d love a dark, allover glittery charcoal eye, lightly glossy peach lips and open toe booties with this look for a fun-but-edgy twist.
- DSquared2 Resort 2017
Lose the sexy/sporty lace-up heels, unzip the dress and add brown accessories and this look would read more fun, casual and sporty instead of the try-hard vamped up vibe present in the lookbook.
- Emilio Pucci Resort 2017
If ever there was a time that Taylor would wear a look like this, it would be now. Vibrant, sexy, and perfect for a summer awards show. Minus the shredded blue headpiece, of course. Just add a coral lip and some orange SW ‘Nudists’ and call this look a day.
Some of my favourite backups included this feathery mini by Sass & Bide, this chic blue jumpsuit by Paule Ka, and these two Zimmermann Resort looks which I dropped because I could easily see Taylor rock them as candid looks in New York or L.A. in the summer.
Again, as Taylor will likely not be attending this is all in good fun. Which of my choices do you like best or is there a designer/trend you’ve always wanted to see Taylor try for this awards show?
