In our tumultuous, unpredictable world, it's comforting to know that some things never change. Like, at all. Take, for instance, Taylor Swift's matching sets, which have come to act as a sort of personal groundhog for the city of New York, reminding us all that it's officially summertime.
This particular ensemble, which she wore on a date with Calvin Harris to eat gluten-free pizza at L'asso last night, is pure Taylor: It's AQUA, a brand she's been known to favor; it's pastel; the skirt is short and kicky; there's a hint of midriff but never, ever bellybutton, and she's doing that whole red lip, classic thing that you like. All is right in the world.
