The 1 Aspect of Taylor Swift's Style That Hasn’t Changed Over the Years
People tend to talk about Taylor Swift's style choices in phases: her high-fashion, bleach haired, "goth" phase; her super feminine, fit-and-flare-inclusive "Red" album phase; when she was apparently into scarves while dating Jake Gyllenhaal, etc. A small description of where she was, musically and romantically, and we can instantly picture what she was wearing. Through it all, however, Taylor's commitment to cat fashion has remained consistent.
As Swifties well know, the singer is a proud cat lady. She has two of her own, Olivia Benson and Meredith Grey, and even had their faces printed on T-shirts and earrings as part of her tour merchandise. Aside from paying homage to her furbabies — or toting them around like accessories — Taylor's often seen carrying cat bags and wearing cat shoes. She's been a fan of feline fashion for years at this point, and judging from the Anya Hindmarch bag she brought to Gigi Hadid's birthday party, that won't be ending anytime soon.

We've decided to give the girl (and her longtime stylist Joseph Cassell) some credit, applauding her passion for cat pieces and highlighting a few of our favorites.
Taylor might not have been on theme at Gigi Hadid's denim birthday bash, but she did show up wearing this cat purse, so all is forgiven on our end.
Sometimes the perfect summer look includes denim shorts and a T-shirt. And if that T-shirt includes a cat print? Even better.
Model material! We're talking about Olivia, obviously, whose face is featured on Taylor's earrings.
Did we just time travel? This graphic cat tee is very kindergartener-in-the-'90s, and, to be honest, we're not mad about it.
What's better than a drawing of a cat in glasses? A drawing of Taylor Swift's cat, Meredith, in glasses.
The old Taylor was dead and gone in the "Look What You Made Me Do" music video, and the new one upgraded from a kitten to a Gucci tiger.
Not only was Taylor giving her favorite animal a nod with this leopard coat, she was also wearing a Dolce & Gabbana top with a kitten on it (and the kitten was wearing a crown).
Before you let those cat heels distract you, check out Taylor's cat purse. Double cats!
We have a feeling that if we raided the singer's closet, we'd find a number of cat bags like this one.
The "Shake It Off" video was full of amazing outfits, but this cat sweatshirt definitely caught our eye.
Ariana Grande isn't the only star who loves ear headbands.
One of these polka dots is, in fact, the face of a little kitty.
Cats can be fancy, too. Taylor spiced up her formal fit-and-flare with cat heels when attending the BBC Radio 1 Teen Awards.
Retro cat! Taylor paired her feminine, floral midi skirt with white cat flats.
It takes a moment to notice, but that's a cat print on Taylor's dress.
