Yesterday marked Taylor Swift’s 26th birthday and her return to the States. We’ve missed Taylor’s style inspiration while she’s been away on her 1989 world tour but were all over the schoolgirl look she was rocking yesterday upon her arrival at LAX: a Zimmerman Cross Body ($495) with a cropped Brandy Melville Abi Knit ($26) in Navy. But the real scene-stealer was that tartan mini. While Taylor’s red-and-navy Aqua skort (skirt in the front, shorts in the back) might be sold out, the brand’s black plaid version ($31) is still available and on sale—there’s also a killer option in faux leather ($78). We have to admit this birthday outfit is sorta genius. It has the benefit of showing off leg without the risk of malfunction, and it looks cool.
Did Taylor single-handedly just make skorts cool again? Sound off below!
