  • Taylor Swift had a huge year in 2023 with her Eras Tour, the release of multiple albums, and a film.

  • It was also a standout time for her red-carpet fashion, performance outfits, and street style.

  • Her best looks included black gowns, daring bodysuits, and countless sparkles.

Taylor Swift made her first fashionable appearance of the year at the 2023 Grammys.

Swift sparkled on the red carpet in Roberto Cavalli. Her outfit included a silk long-sleeved crop top and a high-waisted, mermaid-style skirt — both in shades of midnight blue.

The two pieces were cut by hand and embellished with silver Swarovski crystals, which mirrored "an explosion of stars all over," according to a post on the designer's Instagram page.

She then kicked off the Eras Tour in March while wearing a sparkling, corseted bodysuit.

Versace designed the multicolored garment, which was embellished from top to bottom with a mix of beads and crystals in blue, pink, purple, and silver shades.

Swift wears the piece during her shows with bedazzled Christian Louboutin boots.

Some of Swift's best looks in the show are the flowing gowns she wears to perform songs from "Folklore."

Swift has sported a variety of "Folklore" dresses during the Eras Tour, including a green leaf-patterned one with a bodice cutout and a lilac gown with ruffled edges.

But one of her best is the most understated: a cream-colored Alberta Ferretti gown with flowing split sleeves, a tiered skirt, and subtle sparkles.

And some of her most daring are the blue bodysuits she wears with matching garters.

Fashion house Oscar de la Renta designed one of Swift's original blue bodysuits, which she wears to perform songs from "Midnights."

The sleeveless piece was made over the course of 315 hours with 5,300 hand-embroidered crystals and beads.

She later wore another, almost-identical suit from Zuhair Murad, and then a third one with bedazzled cutouts from the same designer.

Fashion psychologist Carolyn Mair told Insider that the garters Swift pairs the bodysuits with can "invoke feelings of empowerment and body positivity for the wearer, and often symbolizes sensuality, intimacy, and a romantic commitment."

In June, Swift mixed a bunch of classic pieces to create a cute, simple look.

She wore a pinstripe shirt from The Row over a pleated Free People skort, and she paired both pieces with a baseball cap, lace-up oxford shoes, and a Patou purse.

The outfit showed the preppier side of Swift's street style.

She then attended the MTV Video Music Awards in a daring Versace dress with an asymmetrical neckline.

The custom gown had thin straps embellished with the fashion house's signature gold hardware and a matching row of buttons that extended down its bodice.

The dress also had a sweetheart neckline and a thigh-high slit in its skirt.

But her after-party dress rivaled her red-carpet one.

The EB Denim minidress, which retails for $480, had a corseted bodice and raw-hem skirt both in varying shades of blue.

It was styled to perfection with silver platform sandals, a $31,675 choker from Anita Ko, vintage necklaces from Joseph Saidian and Sons, and a $15,000 ring from Van Cleef and Arpels.

To kick off the fall season, Swift stepped out in September wearing a burnt-orange sweater dress and luxury accessories.

The Reformation dress is one of Swift's more affordable pieces of the year, retailing for $98 online.

She paired it with $448 crocodile-skin boots from the same brand, a green Luana Italy purse, and various gold jewelry — creating the ultimate autumn outfit that's both casual and chic.

She took the same approach to an athleisure look in October, mixing casual-looking pieces with designer duds.

The highlight of Swift's New York City outfit was her Shania Twain T-shirt, which was created by music-inspired clothing brand Daydreamer and retails for $88 online.

She wore it with black bike shorts, $349 New Balance x Ganni sneakers, and a $3,450 Louis Vuitton purse.

Twain later said it was "really cool" that Swift wore her face on a T-shirt and noted that she feels like her aunt.

For her first public date night with Kansas City Chiefs star Travis Kelce, Swift wore a chic black-and-gold ensemble.

Under an $825 houndstooth coat from Gant, Swift sported a Versace corset top and high-waisted trousers. She also carried a $340 Aupen bag and wore a $70 gold necklace from Mazin Jewels.

The outfit is one of two that prove Swift and Kelce already have the perfect fall-ready couple style.

Ahead of releasing "1989 (Taylor's Version)," Swift was photographed in New York City wearing one of her coolest outfits of the year.

Her recent look included an $850 rugby shirt from Stella McCartney that's emblazoned with a golden horse design, standout Prada boots in a deep-red shade, and a corduroy hat from Ralph Lauren.

She supported Beyoncé by attending her concert film premiere and stunned in a silver gown.

Balmain designed Swift's sleeveless dress, which had a floor-length skirt with a tall slit and a rosette attached at the neckline.

In keeping with the gown's glamorous aesthetic, Swift completed the look with black Giuseppe Zanotti sandal heels, a wavy hairstyle, and her signature red lipstick.

She kept things classic while visiting New York City to attend a "Poor Things" screening alongside her friend Emma Stone.

Swift sported a sleeveless black dress from The Row, a Charlotte Simone faux fur coat, and the same black heels she wore to watch Beyoncé's movie.

Her purse also stood out. Designed by Naeem Khan, the metallic clutch depicted the constellation of Swift's birth sign Sagittarius.

Swift went with another celestial outfit on her birthday.

Her black, sparkle-covered dress was designed by Clio Peppiatt and was bedazzled with a silver moon and stars. Swift wore it with a fuzzy Anine Bing jacket, a silver Aquazzura bag, and platform heels.

She also donned a massive teardrop-shaped ring made from opal and blue topaz stones. While many assumed the jewelry was a gift from Swift's boyfriend, Travis Kelce, it was revealed to have been a birthday present from Keleigh Teller, Swift's friend and Miles Teller's wife.
