The modern lady who lunches mixes her high and low!
That's the lesson we gleaned from Taylor Swift's latest casually elegant street style ensemble (worn in NYC on Sunday, April 19), which featured an affordable shorts suit teamed with a designer purse.
Stepping out onto the streets of the Big Apple, the ACM Awards 2015 Milestone Award winner, 25, modeled the Missguided "Renna Retro Print Tailored Blazer" ($40, Missguided.com) and matching "Dominique Retro Print Front Split Shorts" in navy ($22, Missguided.com).
But while Swift's clothing may be doable on the average lady's budget, her choice of handbag was just a little bit more luxe. The "Blank Space" singer accessorized her look with the $1,200 Elie Saab "Green Leather Shoulder Bag" from the French fashion house's spring 2012 collection (no longer available; similar styles available at Elie Saab stores). She completed the look with matching emerald shoes by Prada ($650, available in other colors on Barneys.com).
When choosing her outfit each morning, Swift confessed that it's not the paps she's thinking about, but her stylish best friends, including supermodel Karlie Kloss. "When I'm getting dressed, it's always based on what my friends will think," she told ASOS magazine this past November. "They are my number-one priority, and the opinions of girls are more important to me at this point in my life."
