Are you obsessed with Taylor Swift's "Lover" style? The better question is who isn't? It is all pastel dreams, butterflies, and happiness. We have seen that in Taylor's music videos for "ME!," "You Need to Calm Down," and "Lover." And the fashion game is so strong that we're focusing on it more than the Easter eggs.
The singer has always had amazing style, but it has been taken to unicorn heights for her Lover album. Tay is even stepping up her fashion game by collaborating with fashion designer Stella McCartney on a collection inspired by the album. While there are some more reasonable pieces, we know that many fans cannot afford a $1,995 bomber jacket. We also know that unless you are right there at the collection drop, it's highly unlikely that you're going to get that $80 T-shirt. Don't sweat because we have picked some affordable pieces inspired by Taylor Swift's "Lover" style to help you slay the look without breaking the bank and/or having to scour eBay for rare merch.
Does your heart still desire some official Taylor Swift merchandise? Don't worry, our girl still has plenty of official and budget-conscious options for us. We are loving this dreamy pastel tee that has all the symbolism. It features that infamous sinister snake turning into a cloud of butterflies. The T-shirt is available in sizes small to 3X. There is also a bonus where you get a digital copy of the Lover album when you buy the tee. That is a good deal. Another cool thing is that the custom dye process means that every shirt will be unique. So, you will still feel special at the next Taylor Swift concert among the other fans rocking similar tees.

We are in luck because tie-dye is super trendy at the minute which means there are even more options than normal to help us master Taylor Swift's "Lover" style. These tie-dye socks are a low-key way to add a bit of the playful pattern into any look. They come in this white, pink, and yellow color scheme as well as a white, purple, and blue option. We suggest that you get both. You can never have too many pairs of socks. Secondly, tie-dye socks are so much more fun than plain black or white ones. We think Taylor mentioned that in a song. Maybe.

Blue or black denim cut-offs would have been great for capturing previous phases of the "Bad Blood" singer's look. This eye-catching tie-dye pair of shorts is perfect for embodying the "Lover" mood now. Check them out, you guys. The multicolored shorts are made for the beach and music festivals. They are the right side of groovy. We encourage you not to put the rainbow shorts away in the cooler weather because you could still get more wear out of them with tights and leggings. Take inspiration from T-Swift and add even more soft color to your look with colorful tights. Fashion cannot get enough of bold tights RN.

This T-shirt is so amazing that you would likely think that it was made for Taylor Swift. However, it's not even fan merchandise! It is from ModCloth. The cute cotton tee nods to the performer's love of cats. Furthermore, it is decorated with multicolored pastel flowers and butterflies which make it the perfect piece to celebrate the Lover album. Here is another reason to love the top: It is available in sizes extra-small to 4X. Oh, the semi-sheer style is also sooooo comfortable. We are warning you now that you will want to wear it with absolutely everything in your wardrobe.

We know that Taylor Swift is a lover of dresses. And you don't need us to explain the current infatuation with pastels. Therefore, this dress is right on point for getting the look. If you are secretly unsure about tie-dye, you will feel happy that there is the soft leaf print as an alternative. This maxi dress is also so comfortable. It is equally perfect for lounging at the beach as it is for going out to brunch. It is also a must to pack on vacations. The summer vibes are strong, but you could get more wear out of it by layering up. We suggest a pastel pink cardigan and coordinating flats in the cooler weather.

Don't the soft colors in this tie-dye sweatshirt totally remind you of the Lover album cover? It is so dreamy. Sigh. Another big plus about the piece is that it is cozy. This is a sweatshirt that is made for Netflix and chill. However, it is still fancy enough that you can leave the house to buy chips and still feel put-together. The multicolored top would be pretty with light-wash jeans. If you want to kick the "Lover" look into high gear, pair it with pastel bottoms. Skinny jeans would be fun, but we encourage you to get creative and consider an Easter egg-colored mini or midi skirt.

Who doesn't love an easy, breezy dress? The fact that this one has a pink tie-dye print makes it even better. It is a beachy option that nods to Taylor Swift's latest style evolution, but it doesn't have that zany retro feel that some tie-dye prints have. The handkerchief hem adds a little bit more sass. When you walk, it will look so pretty swishing back and forth. As you can see from the styling in the photo, the mini dress works as well by itself as it does with heavier pieces worn on top. More versatility means more value for our money. Woot, woot.

Taylor Swift's "Lover" style can be adapted for any occasion and for any season. If you are after something that you can wear in the cold weather, we would like to suggest this adorable sweater. The robin egg blue is one of the singer's current favorite colors. Secondly, the roomy knit plays into the happy, girly mood of Taylor's current style thanks to the ruffles. The frills are big enough that they will make a fashun statement, but they aren't so big that they will look like wings and be tricky to pull off. Another great thing about the sweater is that it is made from at least 25 percent recyclable polyester from water bottles. We bet that Taylor would approve of that.

Do you love the vibe of Taylor Swift's current style, but you are someone who is typically drawn to darker colors? Don't worry because this piece will satisfy both requirements. It still has the mandatory tie-dye, but the pastel colors have been kept in check by the black. Black is something that we do not see a lot of in tie-dye or beachwear so this makes the jumpsuit special. It has actually been hand-dyed which means artisan points and a one-of-a-kind finish. Another brilliant thing about the predominantly black color palette is that it makes it easier to take the look from the beach to the streets and from the summer into the fall.

If you are going for a "Lover" vibe with your wardrobe, then you cannot have too many butterflies and pastel colors. That's a fact. This cute T-shirt has both things. Trade in your typical graphic T-shirts for the fun option. It has a shrunken fit that will show off your shape, but it is still comfortable. (You won't feel like you are wearing a sausage casing.) FYI: Butterflies also happen to be very big in fashion right now. We can definitely credit T-Swift for that. You could take things to the next level by layering the T-shirt with a butterfly printed skirt.

We know that Taylor Swift does not typically show her bellybutton. So, you can style this cutout T-shirt in a way that conceals your navel, too. The top still fits into her style game because our girl cannot resist a cropped top and this shrunken T-shirt plays into that. Plus, it has the whimsical pale blue tie-dye effect. The cutout with drawstring makes it feel a bit more special than the average T-shirt. The tie detail is adjustable so you can wear it as tight or as loose as you want. The inclusive top comes in straight and plus sizes. We recommend styling it a la Taylor with a high-waisted flippy skirt.

It is pretty hard to feel down when looking at the rainbow colors in this breezy top. And just imagine how good you will feel once you're actually wearing it. Joy in a tube top. Who would have thought? The strapless style has an elastic at the top and one at the waist to help it stay in place. The top and bottoms come in three different patterns, but this pastel tie-dye design is the one that is the most "Lover" of them all. Obsessed with the entire outfit? Snag the Tiare Hawaii Pia Short for $65. Then match your hair to the outfit.

We have not forgotten about accessories. In fact, they are a great way to really nail Taylor Swift's "Lover" style without much hassle. This blush pink belt is a charming update to the typical black or brown variety. See the sweet pink bow. This would upgrade any outfit, no matter how simple. And it could add a bit more "Lover" charm to unexpected pieces. The belt has the potential to transform a plain T-shirt and jeans. But, imagine pairing it with coordinating pastel pieces and possibly a butterfly print. #Slay Wondering how it goes on? There is actually a snap closure on the back. Fancy, huh?

Full disclaimer: This is a "lounge dress" that is traditionally meant for the beach and/or to sleep sweet dreams in. However, we encourage you to not feel restricted by those parameters. With the right shoe and accessories (see the previous belt), you could potentially wear this as regular clothes, especially in the warmer weather or on holiday. Even if you just wear it for chill activities, you are still winning. You cannot go wrong with a sugary sweet pink with the addition of different colored butterflies. Wearing the dress isn't guaranteed to give you sweet dreams, but we think it will make you happier hitting the hay.

How stunning is this skirt? It is the sort of piece that will convince people who aren't sure about tie-dye that it can be super chic. It is also something that will hopefully encourage people to embrace more color in their wardrobe choices. The slit in the midi style is the right length to offer a bit more freedom of movement. However, it isn't so high that you will be stressing about wardrobe malfunctions. We also think that it's a style that Tay herself would deem appropriate for everyday. As you can see, the skirt works with trendy chunky sneakers. It would also look smashing with strappy sandals or delicate ballet flats.

Can you see Taylor Swift wearing this? We so can. It has a lot of her signatures including a crop top, a bellybutton-concealing rise, pretty colors, and sweet details. (See the pompom trim.) And we can envision you sporting it, too. What is great about the coordinates is that they are not so fancy that they will only work on the stage. They totally work for a normal person's everyday life. And you cannot beat the price. Note that the crop top and shorts come together for one low price tag. Savvy shoppers can get even more value out of them by breaking up the pieces.

We are dying over how fun and flirty this budget-friendly dress is. The sweet piece also makes us realize that there just isn't enough yellow in our wardrobes, in general. This light yellow shade adds some happiness while playing into the understated tones of Taylor Swift's "Lover" style. And it isn't too bright to make you feel intimidated/like a highlighter. This versatile frock is something that could be dressed up or dressed down. Stick with flats and a roomy bag for day then upgrade it come evening with blinging jewelry and statement heels. You can even pull a classic Taylor move and add some red lipstick.

There are a lot of gorgeous tie-dye T-shirts to take our pick from. You cannot go wrong with one of them, but remember to look a bit further for unique options. See this tie-dye denim jacket. A trusty blue denim jacket will never go out of style. Admittedly, it will never make as loud of a statement as this playful tie-dye version will. This printed topper is still pretty versatile thanks to the wishy-washy colors and all of the blue. You can likely wear it with all of the graphic T-shirts in your wardrobe. We say go for the butterfly one first.

Bring the "Lover" vibes to any style or occasion, including athleisure and/or working out. Get those thoughts of expensive designer tie-dye hoodies out of your head and take a gander at this lovely number. There are three tie-dye colors to choose from and they all play right into the look. We know that the hoodie says "Calvin" across the front rather than "Taylor Swift is the best," but it still doesn't take away the vibe. The hoodie is a bit different from the usual ones because it does not have knit cuffs or a knit hem band. It is slightly cropped for a modern finish. Wear it and channel the performer going to dance practice.

Colored pencils might not be the first thing that springs to mind when you think of Taylor Swift's look, but it does tie into the theme. Think about the rainbow of colors. Rainbow colors equal a rainbow of pencils. The dark base color isn't typical, but makes the vivid hues of the pattern pop. The pencils also pay homage to some of the arty elements in Taylor's recent music videos. See the end of "ME!" The skirt is available in sizes XXS to 4X and the flattering knee-length makes it very versatile for day or night. Did we mention that it has pockets?

Master Taylor Swift's "Lover" style while learning a bit more about butterflies with this on point graphic T-shirt. It has whimsical drawings of some of the prettiest butterflies found in nature. Memorizing them will make you a proper lepidoptery expert. (That's the study of butterflies and moths.) And Taylor Swift fans will be pleased to see that there are absolutely no snakes involved here. The scoop neckline and "vintage white" color are flattering and very versatile. P.S. Some people might even say that model is twinning with the "Look What You Made Me Do" singer thanks to the swishy blonde hair.
