Eras Tour Outfit Ideas: What To Wear To Taylor Swift's Concert | marie claire (2024)

The Taylor Swift Eras Tour concert is finally approaching, with the first date in Melbourne on February 16. So begins the scramble of thousands of Swifties to get their hands on the chicest, most Taylor, most niche or most outlandish Eras Tour outfits.

For those unaware, Swifties like to dress up in outfits inspired by their ‘Mother’, Swift. Given the tour spans the music across 10 studio albums or ‘Eras’, they like to embody their favourite era at the show.

If you’re unfamiliar with the eras, or want to know who she dated, what she wore or what the songs mean for that time period, we have a handy guide here.

So, without further ado, here are over 100 ideas for the Eras tour, divided by era.

Debut (Taylor Swift)

Taylor Swift’s first album was a country hit, with this era defined by big curls, boho summer dresses, blue jeans and pick up trucks. Swift hadn’t yet begun wearing her now signature red lip, and often wore a smoky eye with a nude lip. The colour of this era is a turquoise-green-blue.

Some ideas include:

  • Faded bell bottom blue jeans and a flowy top
  • Cowboy boots
  • Cowboy hat
  • Floaty, boho summer dresses
  • Anything turquoise or light green
  • A little black dress from ‘Tim McGraw’
  • The cornflower blue dress from the ‘Our Song’ music video
  • A guitar with tears on it for ‘Teardrops On My Guitar’
  • A pick up truck from ‘Picture To Burn’
  • Dress up as Tim McGraw

Fearless

Fearless marked Swift’s first foray into the international sphere, undertaking the Fearless World Tour with the success of her second album. Her hair was curly during this time and she wore a lot of sparkly flapper-style dresses on the stage shows. You can also take notes from her many music videos in this era. The colour of this era is gold.

Some ideas include:

  • Gold sparkly dresses
  • Silver flapper dresses
  • Drawing the ‘Junior Jewels’ top from the ‘You Belong With Me’ music video
  • Sparkly cowboy boots
  • The white ballgown from ‘Love Story’ music video

Speak Now

Speak Now was Swift’s third studio album, and it is entirely self-written. The emotional album is known for it’s purple colour palette, and inspiration can be taken from many different areas.

Swift still wore her hair curly, but it wasn’t as curly as it had been. She commonly wore a red lip and clean black liner around this time.

Some ideas include:

  • A purple mini dress (extra points if it’s a halterneck like the one in the OG tour)
  • Glittery purple pants
  • A furry purple top
  • A purple ballgown like the one she wears for ‘Enchanted’ in the Eras Tour
  • A white shift dress like the ‘Mean’ music video
  • The schoolgirl outfit from ‘Story of Us’
  • A wedding dress for ‘Speak Now’
  • Anything with a koi fish on it like her ‘Long Live’ guitar
  • Draw ‘Dads (or mums) against John Mayer’ on a t-shirt
  • Write lyrics down your arm (Swift did this during the original tour)

Red

The Red era was, no surprise, full of the colour red. This is the era of All Too Well, red scarves, maple lattes and broken hearts. Swift entered quite a graphic aesthetic during this time, think of the 22 music video, for example. She also tended towards a lot of 1950s style fit-and-flare dresses.

Her hair was mostly straight in this era, and she always wore a red lip.

Some ideas include:

  • Anything red or sparkly
  • The ‘Not A Lot Going On At The Moment’ shirt from the ‘22’ music video
  • A black bowler hat from the ‘22’ music video
  • Red heart-shaped sunglasses from the ‘Red’ music video
  • Knee high red boots
  • A red scarf and red plaid shirt for ‘All Too Well’
  • A tea dress or any fit-and-flare that is reminiscent of her 1950s street style at the time
  • The ‘Circus Master’ outfit from the Red tour
  • Draw a ‘Dads (or mums) against Jake Gyllenhaal’ shirt
  • Draw a ‘Fuck The Patriarchy’ t-shirt for ‘All Too Well’
  • The purple dress from the ‘Begin Again’ music video
  • Going in a flame outfit (bonus points for a blue paintbrush) for the lines in ‘All Too Well’, “did the twin flame bruise paint you blue?” and “twin fire signs”
  • Go dressed as a maple latte (the drink she was spotted sipping with Gyllenhaal)
  • A refrigerator ala ‘All Too Well’ “We’re dancing ’round the kitchen in the refrigerator light”

1989

1989 was the first album that completely ‘shook off’ Swift’s country roots. The New York/Hamptons theme is strong in this era, with cityscapes and nightlife at the front of this look.

Swift wore her classic red lip and a straight bob during this era. It’s symbolic colour is light blue.

Some ideas include:

  • Anything light blue and sparkly
  • Two piece sets in light blue
  • The red and pink outfit she wore to the 2016 Grammys
  • Cheerleader outfit from the ‘Shake It Off’ music video
  • The Swan Lake outfit from the ‘Shake It Off’ music video

Reputation

Reputation was Swift’s era of rebellion, defined by snakes and scales, lots of black and dark emerald, tattoo motifs and knee high boots. Swift wore her hair more shaggy and undone in this era, and wore a lot of deeper, almost purple, lipstick hues.

A motif of butterflies and hearts run through this album as well. Swift continued with the red lip aesthetic.

  • The Lover body suit from the Eras Tour (in multiple colours)

Folklore

The Folklore album came out during the pandemic, and was a more pared back album. The colour of Folklore is grey. Swift wore her hair in a messy bun and fringe during this era and often wore cosy cardigans and flowing dresses.

It has a woodland, cottagecore feel, and is quite inspired by nature.

Some ideas include:

  • Old timey and flowing dresses
  • A cut-out flowing green dress like her ‘Folklore’ eras tour dress
  • Anything with billowing bell sleeves
  • The floral dress she wore to the 2021 Grammys

Evermore

Evermore is Folklore’s pandemic sister album. If Folklore is spring and summer, Evermore is autumn and winter, with a woodsy, autumnal palette of burnt oranges and rust.

Evermore is all about the storytelling, has a certain witchy and fantasy element, and some really iconic lyrics that lend themselves to niche costumes. The colour for Evermore is burnt orange/rust.

Some ideas include:

  • Anything burnt orange/rust/plaid
  • A dress similar to the orange embroidered one she wears during the Evermore set in the Eras Tour
