Taylor Swift has always been a fantastic dresser. But I found the outfit she put out on Monday a little questionable. Of course, she still looked good in the whole getup even though it was a tad over the top.

For the outing with her brother — who by the way, is a hottie — Taylor wore a lace black dress by  & Other Stories (you can buy the dress here), then paired the piece with patterned stockings and black ankle booties. She also complemented the getup with a crystal-detailed hair accessory, which I found unnecessary given the already-busy attire. Check out Taylor below, then tell me what you think:

Well, any thoughts?

I know, you can’t really tell what dress she’s wearing, so below is a closer look at the frock. Now do you think the mix looks alright? I’m on the fence here, so I’m going to let you decide.

Of course, this goes without saying that even though it’s not one of her best looks, Taylor still came out of it looking polished and pretty.

On a side note, below is a look at the boots Taylor used to cap off the attire. While her pair is in black, these shoes are the gray versions. They’re from Prada, and  they feature rounded toes, 1.5-inch-thick platforms, as well as 5.5-inch-tall heels. They’re quite tall so you’ll need to be well-heeled to be able to walk in them.

They’re a classic in terms of look and appeal, so they’ll last through seasons. If you fancy grabbing a pair,  they are currently discounted at $760  (was $950). Depending on the store’s promotion, you may even be able to get them for less.

For the gals on a budget, I recommend these super affordable alternatives from Call It Spring. They feature metal details on the counters, 5-inch-tall heels, and inch-thick platforms.
