While we're more accustomed to seeing Taylor Swift on the red carpet, we were pleasantly surprised to see her looking ever so chic on a stroll around New York yesterday.

Swift teamed her preppy pleated skirt and cable-knit jumper with impeccable makeup and hair. Her cherry red pout brought a pop of colour to her effortlessly stylish ensemble, while her flawless skin and blonde ringlets complimented her statement makeup perfectly.

However, Taylor's outfit wouldn't have been complete without that all important flick of eyeliner. Instead of screaming schoolgirl, those striking black lines add a touch of sophistication to her prim and proper look.

How do you rate Swift's street style? Let us know and take a look below to see more celebrities rocking the red lip trend.
