Taylor Swift gave fans the first pleasant surprise of 2020 with the spontaneous release of her eighth album last week. A far cry from her usual meticulously planned roll-out, folklore sees her not only abandon the notorious easter eggs but also branch out into a brand new genre of music.
Dubbed by some Swifties as ‘Red 2.0’, the album is Taylor’s first alternative/indie record and features songs written from the perspective of others as well as her own. It’s safe to say the album cover and photoshoot defines the vibe of the album – a quaint, cosy, whimsical forest of our dreams. We think Taylor summed it up best with “we’re all sombre woodland fairies now.”
To celebrate the lead single ‘cardigan’, celebrities and friends have been receiving their own knitted versions and honestly, we’ve never wanted anything more. As we’re yet to become BFFs with Taylor (and probs won’t anytime soon, unfortunately), we thought we’d show you how to recreate every look from folklore so you can steal her style for less.
