She studied Swift's style for over a decade.

Taylor Swift is undoubtedly one of this generation’s most popular singer-songwriters, with glitter, red lipstick, and diary-like lyrics taking center stage (literally). But to talk about Swift without discussing her ever-changing style would be a disservice—so, I chatted with Swift style expert Sarah Chapelle to get the lowdown on the star’s summer fashion.

Chapelle isn’t only the creator of the robust @taylorswiftstyled Instagram (an account I’ve been following since I was 14), but she will soon be the author of the book, Taylor Swift Style: Fashion Through the Eras (a.k.a., the “Swiftie style bible,” as dubbed by Chapelle), which releases on October 8. There, she shares 200 stunning photographs and dives into the “why” behind Swift’s outfits—easter eggs and all. But in the meantime, Chapelle spills the six pieces Swift wears most during warm-weathered months.  

6 Swift-Inspired Summer Picks:

    Practical Skorts: Free People Emmy Denim Skort, $88 Corset Tops: Free People Melanie Tank, $58 Chunky Schoolgirl Shoes: Reformation Agathea Chunky Loafer, $268 Top-Handle Bags: Aupen Fearless Re-Edition Aupen Purse, $340 Airy Dresses: Vince Camuto Sleeveless Maxi Dress, $69 Fashionable Sneakers: Nike Air Force 1 ‘07 Sneaker, $90 (Originally $120)

“Taylor’s signature feminine style really shines in the summer,” said Chapelle, explaining that her outfits lean “girly, classic, and preppy,” while staying close to her “relatable image.” Best of all, you can shop the savvy pop star’s looks, below. 

Practical Skorts

A Taylor Swift style expert shares the six fashion items the Eras Tour singer wears during summer including skorts, corset tops, sneakers, and more from Free People, Aupen, and Reformation. Items start at $30.

$88 at Nordstrom

    Free People Emmy Denim Skort, $88 Halara Everyday Softlyzero Airy 2-in-1 Tennis Skirt, $30 (Originally $35) Banana Republic Linen-Blend Pleated Skort, $45 (Originally $75)

Chapelle explains that even amidst Swift’s evolving fashion, she continuously returns to skirts, including tea-length picks, mini flared versions, and animal-printed options. “I love that even as Taylor’s fashion has changed over time…there are bones to her style that have stayed the same,” Chapelle continued. 

Swift has recently been calling on skorts, a practical take on the skirt, whether she’s rehearsing for The Eras Tour or hanging with boyfriend Travis Kelce, and last summer was no different, with Swift reaching for cross-over versions left and right. Thankfully, Free People, Halara, and Banana Republic offer casual and dressy options ideal for picnics, bike rides, and beyond.   

Corset Tops

$58 at Freepeople.com

    Free People Melanie Tank, $58 Astr the Label Satin Corset Camisole, $59 House of CB Broderie Anglaise Corset Top, $119

If you’ve been keeping up with The Tortured Poets Department, then you know corset tops are the moment. “It’s her way of making an item intended to be worn under clothes, the outfit itself,” said Chapelle. “It’s a mature translation on Taylor’s mission to be vulnerable in her art,” she concluded. Plus, they’re extremely lightweight and breathable; two essential elements for summer clothing.

Chunky Schoolgirl Shoes

$268 at Reformation

    Reformation Agathea Chunky Loafer, $268 G.H. Bass Lug Fisherman Mary Jane, $195 Naturalizer Darry Lace-Up Derby Oxford, $120 

Another Swift classic? Chunky schoolgirl shoes, which Chapelle categorizes into oxfords, loafers, and Mary Janes. The trick is to snag footwear with a bold sole, such as Swift’s exact Reformation Agathea Chunky Loafer, G.H. Bass Lug Fisherman Mary Jane, and lookalike Naturalizer Darry Lace-Up Derby Oxford.     

Top-Handle Bags

$340 at Aupen.com

    Aupen Fearless Re-Edition Aupen Purse, $340 Mango Faux Leather Crossbody Bag, $70 Madewell Transport Shoulder Crossbody Bag, $146 (Originally $158)

According to Chapelle, Swift loves a good designer handbag but also opts for “lesser known or upcoming designers,” such as Hunting Season, Aupen, and Brandon Blackwood. The invisible string (wink, wink) that ties it all together? A “clean, boxy silhouette in neutral leather tones like black or cognac brown,” said Chapelle. To steal her look, you’ll have to snag the Fearless Re-Edition Aupen Purse, Mango Faux Leather Crossbody Bag, or sleek Madewell Crossbody Bag. 

Airy Dresses

A Taylor Swift style expert shares the six fashion items the Eras Tour singer wears during summer including skorts, corset tops, sneakers, and more from Free People, Aupen, and Reformation. Items start at $30.

$69 at Nordstrom

    Vince Camuto Sleeveless Maxi Dress, $69 BHLDN Mario Sleeveless Lace Midi Dress, $150 (Originally $298) Wenrine Sweetheart Tank Denim Dress, $48 with coupon (Originally $53)

“One of Taylor’s core closet items is a summer dress,” said Chapelle, sharing that it has a “long history in her career”—as proved by her go-to cowboy boots and sundress combo circa 2006. To this day, she calls on airy midi dresses, sleeveless gowns, and denim separates, with Vince Camuto, Anthropologie, and Amazon offering spot-on lookalikes.   

Fashionable Sneakers

Orig. $120 $90 at Nordstrom

    Nike Air Force 1 ‘07 Sneaker, $90 (Originally $120) Adidas Primegreen Stan Smith Sneaker, $100 Adidas Hoops 3.0 Low Shoe, $50 (Originally $70)

Swift loves a trendy sneaker, with Chapelle claiming she returns to Nike and Adidas styles like clockwork. Who wouldn’t when such kicks are comfortable, effortless, and darn stylish thanks to the popular dad getup? 

The Nike Air Force 1 ‘07 Sneaker, Adidas Primegreen Stan Smith Tennis Shoe, and Adidas Hoops 3.0 Low Shoe are a great place to start if you’re looking to recreate her ensembles. Pair them with paper bag shorts, a white tank, and you’re good to go. 

To tie your Swiftie summer looks together, make sure to add a “quirky, out of place accessory,” said Chapelle, which is what “injects [Swift’s] personality into the mix and makes an outfit identifiable as her own.” “[It’s] long been something I’ve found charming about her street style,” she concluded.
