“Blank Space” follows behind “Shake it Off”as the second single from Taylor Swift‘s new album 1989. The self-aware lyrics suggest a take on her own reputation for sour relationships with her exes, and it’s clear that Taylor has a good sense of humor about it. Not only is the song clever and catchy, but the music video is beautifully done and has such a dreamy quality to it. And of course, all of the outfit changes are amazing.
In the music video, Taylor plays an extreme version of herself as she is often portrayed in the media: the “crazy ex-girlfriend.” In the beginning, she and her handsome co-star frolic around a beautiful estate, happy and falling in love. But as soon as the relationship starts to go south, Swift begins to exact her revenge. Everything from destroying his clothes and sports car to giving him a poisoned apple.
If you haven’t seen the video yet, check it out below:
Although there are so many gorgeous looks in the video to take inspiration from, I selected a few outfits that were more suitable for fall and winter. Below, I’ve created four outfits inspired by the song and music video for “Blank Space.”Scroll down to see them!
Nice to Meet You
Product Information: Dress, Shoes, Earrings, Tights, Gel Eyeliner
In the beginning of the video, Taylor descends down an elegant staircase in a gorgeous black lace gown. If only everyone had a reason to look that glamorous, right? The shorter length of the dress featured here allows for a more casual vibe, but can still be dressed up with heels and sparkly earrings. Use gel eyeliner to achieve the bold winged-liner look Taylor is wearing, and throw on a pair of black tights for fall/winter comfort.
Cherry Lips, Crystal Skies
Product Information: Top, Pants, Shoes, Sunglasses, Lipstick
In another scene, Taylor rocks the perfect equestrian-style outfit as she and her man ride majestic horses down the property. Her sleek ensemble consists of a flowy cream-colored top with tan pants and riding boots. A pair of white cat-eye sunglasses and dark red lips complete the look.
Product Information: Top, Skirt, Shoes, Necklace
At this point, Taylor is turning the tables and the couple is arguing and falling apart. She wears a maroon crop top and we get a quick glimpse of matching plaid bottoms. She accessorizes with a flashy statement necklace, and although we cant quite see Taylor’s shoes, a cute pair of oxfords go nicely with the outfit and are a style she wears frequently.
They’ll Tell You I’m Insane
Product Information: Dress, Shoes, Bracelets, Mascara, Nail Polish
As Taylor spirals further into madness, she can be seen sitting on the floor with mascara running down her face. But as crazy as she gets, her outfits still remain on-point. In this scene, Taylor wears a short leopard print dress and ankle-strap heels, as well as gold bangles and red nail polish. Of course, unlike Taylor, you may want to opt for some waterproof mascara.

For the “Cherry Lips, Crystal Skies” outfit, where are the pictured boots from? Link pls.
Love this so much! Please do a part two for the other looks in her film clip!
I love her style
I was not a huge Tswift fan in the past, but I’ve fallen in love with her in the past couple of months. Not only does she own her public image, but she knows it doesn’t define her as an artist or a person. Nor does she take herself so seriously that she can’t make fun of herself, as she does in both the videos for “Shake It Off” and “Blank Space” (which is, by far, the most delicious earworm pop radio has to offer right now.) Her style has always been impeccable but she’s been a lot more daring this year, and I think you did an awesome job of translating the looks from the music video.
tl;dr: I’m publicly announcing my love for tswift for the first time. This is kind of a big deal for me.
I love these looks, but I feel like as of late, the clothing you’ve pictured is NOT in a college girls budget. For example, $50 for a flowy top from Zara? I’d rather buy a cheaper version. Also, linking to all these UK sites is extremely frustrating for two reasons: 1) The pound is much stronger than the dollar, so even if something looks cheat for 25 quid, it actually comes out to almost $50. 2) the shipping rates from UK sites to the US is a ton of money. It is unrealistic for people to want to pay not only the amount in dollars (after conversion) but then to pay for shipping on top of that. I legitimately want to buy a lot of items in your posts, but whenever Im directed to a UK site or something thats not actually cheap, its very frustrating.
Please do the look with the white crop top and skirt!!!
