A decade of Taylor Swift: Here's how her style has changed completely

Updated: 

Singer, fashion icon and all round global star Taylor Swift has a wardrobe anyone would envy. But she hasn't always had her signature slick bob, red lip and fashion-forward clothes.

As Taylor's career has evolved since her first single and debut album was released in 2006, so has her fashion sense.

We've gone back ten years to look at how the girl next door went through phases of cowboy boots, countless metallic minis until she discovered cropped tops and red carpet showstoppers.

Starting off in country music, of course Taylor wore some questionable dresses and cowboy boots with everything.

EVERYTHING.

And her hair was country curly.

Next was the phase where she was always ready to go to a high school prom.

Then, suddenly, her red carpet dresses become sleek.

With the fringe came a more fashion-forward style.

Until one day Taylor wore something other than a dress and realised she was fierce.
