But let's just take a moment to rewind eight years. Because Taylor Swift in the mid-'00s was the best Taylor Swift.

Back in 2006, Taylor hit red carpets in asymmetrical hems and boots and was really happy about it.

In fact, cowboy boots were pretty much a compulsory part of any outfit.

And while she hadn't quite got round to trying out that ~red lip, classic, thing that you like~, her metallic eye shadow game was on point.

Mid-'00s Taylor Swift knew the power of strong accessories. Just look at those tights.

Sometimes she just decided to wear all the accessories at once.

She loved nothing more than embracing different fabrics. And the colour purple.

Some might have shied away from this ensemble, thinking, There's too much going on here. Not Taylor. Taylor was fearless.

But she also knew the value of just keeping things simple once in a while.
