American Idol winner Carrie Underwood constantly tops the charts with her country-influenced hits, and her latest single "Good Girl" is no exception. If you haven't heard it, "Good Girl" has Carrie belting out lyrics warning a 'good girl' to stay away from a not-so-good guy. She tells her to put on her "goodbye shoes" and get out before it's too late.

The music video features the country superstar playing opposite roles: Half of the time, Carrie is the picture of a "good girl" with a sweetheart look, dressed in pinks and pastels. The other half of the time, she's got a bit of an edge to her character. For her "bad girl" role, Carrie's outfits are mostly black, featuring dramatic details like exaggerated shoulders and ornate lace.

Because of its visual contrasts and numerous outfit changes, Carrie's "Good Girl" video is perfect to use as a source of fashion inspiration. Below, I've created a series of outfits inspired by the music video. Scroll down to view them all!
