Before hitting the Billboard Music Awards red carpet in blue sequins yesterday, Taylor Swift showed us how to look every bit as cool, all while maintaining a feminine flair. During a Beverly Hills shopping session with a friend, the singer tucked a printed top with an always-adorable Peter Pan collar into a burgundy pleated miniskirt. She then pulled in the perfect accessories: her favorite Mark Cross messenger bag, tan woven oxfords, and black Ray-Ban Wayfarers for an edgier finish. Next time you hit the retail circuit, reference Taylor's girlie-cum-cool creation and don't leave home without your favorite add-ons. To get similar pieces, shop our picks below.

When taking stock of the biggest red carpet moments at the Cannes Film Festival, the standouts are pretty black and white — quite literally.
