(Welcome to 10 Days of Taylor, Soundcheck's epic countdown to the epic finale of the most epic pop tour of all time: Taylor Swift’s 1989 Tour, stopping Halloween Night at Raymond James Stadium. For all of our Taylor Swift coverage, click here.)
Taylor Swift has undergone quite the style evolution throughout the course of her career. Her wardrobe has provided us with so much inspiration that choosing a Swift-themed Halloween costume takes some serious contemplation. Let's break down five of her most memorable looks to celebrate her big night.
Country Swift (2006)
To pull off this look, long, tight blonde curls are a must. Throw on a scarf dress and a pair of cowgirl boots, and you get bonus points for teardrops on your guitar.
Cinderella Swift (2007)
Remember that time Tay Tay was super shocked to have actually won a CMA? It was her night, so the Cinderella-esque gown she wore was fitting. Find a discarded wedding gown at Goodwill and attach some awkwardly enormous feathers to the skirt. A homemade trophy (Empty lava lamp? Upside-down NutriBullet cup?) will maximize your cred. Oh, and be sure to cry a lot.
Kanye Interruptus Swift (2009)
All you need to reproduce this look is a toga, sequins and a hot glue gun. Voila! Really go for it by bringing along a moon man, dumbfounded expression and babbling, egotistical escort.
Midriff Swift (2010-present)
Ah, the iconic Taylor we all know and love. She’s retro. She’s cherry-lipped. She’s ever so close to showing her belly button. We know you've got the essentials: a high-waisted skirt or shorts, plus red lipstick and a crop top. Couldn’t be easier, if not for the bangs that no one but Taylor will ever master. Ever.
Bad Blood Swift (2014)
If you’re into naughty costumes, now’s your chance to dress as the latex-wearing, gun-slinging version of T Swizzle. Whip out your old pleather Cat Woman suit and slash it until you’re barely covered. This getup requires an arsenal of fake weapons, plus a red wig, massive cat eyes and, of course, a hardcore squad.
