Taylor Swift in Oscar de la Renta

Posted on June 10, 2013

This is both adorable and chic. We declare this adorachic.


Taylor Swift attends the 2013 Capital FM Summertime Ball in London in an Oscar de la Renta top and shorts paired with Office sandals and Neil Lane jewelry.

Office ‘Oppose’ Strappy Sandals

Nice job blending your twee girly-girlness with something a little more fashion-y, Tay. Uncles T & Lo give you their approval. We know this must be an enormous relief for you.

We’re not in love with the shorts but we love that top for her and the whole look just comes together really well for her. Maybe a little more sparkle or oomph in the footwear would have been welcome, but that’s just minor quibbling.

    Love the whole package- hair, makeup, outfit, shoes. Although I do agree about not going crazy over the shorts. I feel like they hit her in a weird spot and should be a tiny bit higher or lower?

    • Annarosa

      I agree, they don’t seem really flattering.

  • Very pretty. Would have *loved* to have seen this with her natural, curly hair.

  • MilaXX

    No crazy about the hair. I think a more causal event like this would have been a good time to wear her hair curly and a little wild. This blow out is boring and bland.

    • akprincess72

      This hair is 70’s hair…

      • Spicytomato1

        Yes. I was thinking that sometimes she gives me a Cheryl Tiegs vibe. This is one of those times.

  • marlie

    This is cute. I’m sort of over her “booms,” but otherwise, I like it.

  • majorbedhead

    Yeah, I still hate shorts with high heels.

    • I hate that in my entire lifetime, I’ve never had the stems for shorts and heels. Leggy bitch. (Me, jealous? No….)

      • ankali

        Aw, I bet the heels would actually lengthen your stems! You should go for it!

  • JasmineAM

    Her hair is so blah. So is her music, public persona, etc. I’m sorry, she just irks.

  • everest19

    Is she our generation’s Britney? I can’t decide if that makes me want to cry.

    • demidaemon

      Well, if she is, she should be having a level 10 meltdown in the near future, which will be hilarious entertainment.

  • What was everyone else wearing? Seems weird to wear shorts to anything called a “Ball” unless it is a sporting event. But she looks cute.

    • alyce1213

      It’s a very casual affair, a ball in the sense of “let’s have a ball!” rather than a grand cotillion. People wore denim and leather, etc.

  • Squarah

    I can’t stand her, but I still have to admit that she took Zooey Deschanel’s schtick and then made it more modern and fashionable. Oop!

  • alyce1213

    Those shoes are remarkably affordable!
    I think she should stay away from that hairstyle but otherwise she looks great.

  • hughman

    “minor quibbles”?

    Dear T-Lo – We are never ever getting back together. I knew you were Trouble. You can await my new song “You Call It Quibble, I Call It Ovah.” – KTHXBYE, Tay

  • ashtangajunkie

    Something about the shorts troubles me, but she does look fantastic here. Her makeup is especially pretty.

  • jw_ny

    I like it all from the neck down. The mannequin hair and face tho…

    • Gwyndall

      YES! She looks like a wax figure from Madame Tussaud’s!

    • RebeccaKW

      Yes, plasticky face. I was thinking there is no reason for her face to match the color of her shirt.

  • Sagecreek

    I can tell I’m getting old, because I just want her to get her hair out of her eyes.

  • PrunellaV

    Gotta give her props for the updated dolly bird look.

  • elemspbee

    adorachic! pubs

  • colleenjanel

    I would love this look if she would grow those effing bangs out! We get it honey … it’s your “thing.” Time for a new “thing.”

  • Warrior89

    She has nice legs.

    There, I said something nice about Taylor Swift.

  • charlotte

    “Adorachic” can also be used as the definition of Kiernan Shipka.

  • I was expecting her to wear shorts, and here she is! Are shorts her trademark now? She looks fabulous in them. The length and fit are classy.

  • frannyprof

    I hate her hair.

    • Lori

      Yes! I’ve made my peace with the other things about her that I find annoying (the fact that she’s been toning down the twee is helping with that), but I hate the ‘do.

    • sekushinonyanko

      There is such a thing as too ashy a blonde, and having that color flat all over does not help at all. I think I could deal with the cut and style if at least the color had some warmth and dimension.

  • stephbellard

    She’s the celebrity I hate the most whose output (her music) I nevertheless enjoy, who almost always looks good, and who I’ll often defend against sexist comments. Which I guess means I just hate HER.

  • Damien W

    She looks like one of the girls in the background of a Benny Hill sketch where he plays a German in lederhosen. No thanks.

  • j_anson

    I do like this look, even through my general irrational hatred. That said, her hair looks oddly like she stole it from a doll.

  • kim bunchalastnames

    i wonder how it would have looked with the blouse untucked. i’d like to see it that way.

  • You just cannot hate a girl who dresses that well all the time. Look at her. That is a perfect 20-something ensemble. Perfect.

  • pattycap11

    yeah, she should wear stuff like this more often. age-appropriate, pretty and chic. she’s tall but she’s not a big girl and sometimes looks dragged down by all those gowns.

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    Not a fan of either her or the ‘shorts-as-fashion’ style but I have to admit, this is really cute.

  • I can never get past her bangs and if I do the mannequin makeup stops me so I never can really judge any of her outfits. But judging from the comments, I probably hate the shorts.

  • Bethany Roullett

    Wow, I actually love this outfit. I would totally wear that blouse. I wish I had the body to wear the whole outfit. The more I think about it though, I really needs the shorts or skinny pants, cuz I realized my first instinct of a long skirt would make it look right out of a Edwardian fashion plate.

  • quiltrx

    I really like the blouse…maybe better untucked, though?
    And “adorachic” is really fun to say. I hope to work it into conversation this week.

  • ankali

    The look is good, but I am pushing back at the term “adorachic.” Nonononononono.

  • CakesOnAPlane

    “but i don’t wanna be a pirate!”

  • Diego!

    This is a sexy look!!! Tai Tai looks amazing here!

  • Andrea Lentz

    I soooo want her to start rocking her natural waves again!

  • Jeff Warhurst

    She looks fantastic.

  • MartyBellerMask

    But I love the photobomb…

  • Mimi

    the ensemble is great if I were going to a BBQ, its missing a jacket to polish it off
