Taylor Swift Steps Out in a Wacky Style Only She Can Get Away With (PHOTO)

taylor swiftLet's be clear. We are firmly Team Taylor. And not just because of her music, but because she genuinely seems like your coolest, most successful girlfriend. One you could while away all day with baking cookies after she spent the morning chatting with sick kids in a hospital. She's probably as universally loved -- or well, tolerated -- as a celeb can be. But this week, Tay-Tay made an, um, interesting outfit choice


So naturally, that vicious cat we call the Internet is now trying to claw her to bits. It seems so high school to start at the beginning, but we'll play.
