It’s in her blood. You can’t take away the retro from a girl like Taylor Swift. A couple of days ago, the country cutie was spotted sporting another pair of brogues while out and about in a rainy New York City. We all know how Taylor loves to wear those lace-ups with pretty fit ’n flare frocks, but last Tuesday, she styled the shoes a little differently, that is, with pastel skinnies and a colorful checkered button-down shirt. The look was classic but fresh with a hint of retro — in other words, very very Taylor Swift. And, well, let’s just say we couldn’t help but like it.

How do you like Taylor Swift’s latest street style? Certainly worth stealing, right?
If you want the look, here are the details: Taylor’s purse is from J. Mendel. It’s called the “Midi Clutch,” and you can find it at Barneys (retails at $1,650). The bubblegum green jeans are from AG Adriano, and the color is called dusty mint. It retails at $168 at Amazon. As for the shirt, it’s from Steven Alan, and you can score it on their website.
As for Taylor’s retro-looking lace-up shoes, those are from Cole Haan. They’re called “Air Violet,” and they are unfortunately sold out.

The Air Violet features leather uppers, perforated trimming around the shoes, and 3.5-inch-tall heels. They are a lot like the usual oxfords but are more comfortable, thanks to the Nike Air technology cushioning.
If you want to get the “look” of these shoes, you can easily do so by grabbing an alternative from Frye, which is, in fact, a little more retro in design — so you get to channel more of the retro Taylor. These lace-ups have genuine leather uppers and feature 3.5 inch heels, just like Taylor’s Cole Haan oxfords:
