Taylor Swift at the ACM Awards

Taylor Swift in J Mendel at the ACM Awards


Taylor Swift was definitely the classiest act, sartorially speaking at lest, at the 2014 Academy of Country Music Awards in Las Vegas last night.

The 24-year-old singer was dressed in a minimalist monochrome crop top-and-skirt combo by J Mendel, and showed exactly how to flash a bit of skin without revealing too much.

A couple of subtle cut-outs at the shoulder (note: not at the cleavage), a strip of midriff and a flash of thigh – this is the way to achieve the perfect balance between sexy and sophisticated.

Taylor, who was nominated for five awards at last night's ceremony (she walked away with Video of the Year), accessorised her outfit with a pair of black strappy Casadei sandals and jewellery by Marina B.

This is one nighttime look we will certainly be copying. Thanks, Taylor!
