Taylor Swift celebrated her 24th birthday earlier this month with an Australian garden party–and new best friend Lorde in tow. Tay shared photos from her whimsical and classy party on her Instagram account but the media couldn’t keep their eyes off Lorde’s presence. As you might remember, Lorde was feuding with Tay’s bestie Selena Gomez earlier this summer after she slammed Gomez’s “Come and Get It” for not agreeing with her views on feminism. Selena responded that pop queen bee Lorde is not supporting other women.


Lorde’s become quite the fashion icon but ditched her usual leather jacket and long, dark dresses to party with Taylor in a floral party dress layered under a white knit. Tay stuck to her sweet and classic style with a belted floral party dress and lipstick to match. The day garden party in Melbourne was a perfect fit for Tay’s personality and romantic style. Lorde and Tay Swift balance each other out with Lorde’s rocker look and Tay’s girly taste.


The floral look can be transitioned day to night by throwing on tights and booties and details like a belted sash keep it feminine but not too boring. This Forever 21 dress would pair well with motorcycle boots and dark lipstick at night to channel Lorde’s pouty and grungy look. For Tay’s look, try this Urban Outfitters floral circle skirt with a collared shirt.
