Singer-songwriter Kacey Musgraves kicked off 2019 with a bang, earning six Grammys in February for her album, Golden Hour. Fortunately, Musgraves's momentum was just picking up; the "Butterflies" singer has parlayed her award-winning success into an extremely epic year, including her own Oh, What a World tour, several festival appearances, her memorable Met Gala debut, and the upcoming Kacey Musgraves Christmas Show holiday special premiering on Amazon next week.

Of course, the 30-year-old Texas native used her long-awaited turn in the spotlight not only to experiment with fashion but also to hone her A-list look with help from stylist Erica Cloud. With a year spent wearing It designers from Adam Selman to Zimmerman and Brian Atwood to Giuseppe Zanotti, it's safe to say that Musgraves is heading into the next decade a certified fashion favorite. 

While we wait to see how this star glitters in 2020, scroll on below for 21 of her best looks from 2019.
