Taylor Swift looks absolutely incredible wearing a simple blue dress in her music video for ‘Out Of The Woods’ — but was the ensemble choice a purposeful reference to Harry Styles? The singer herself seemingly confirmed this VERY interesting fan theory on Tumblr!
It’s no secret that Taylor Swift’s new single “Out Of The Woods” is about her failed romance with Harry Styles, 21, and her music video for the track includes a new reference to the singer of its very own! If you noticed that the blue dress Tay’s wearing in the vid looks familiar, there’s a reason why — and the 26-year-old herself has basically confirmed the connection.
Yup, the dress is the same one Taylor wore while leaving what was supposed to be a romantic New Year’s vacation with the One Direction singer in Jan. 2013! The “Wildest Dreams” singer was photographed looking beyond sad while leaving Virgin Gorda island alone after having a huge fight with her then-boyfriend, who stayed behind on the trip.
A fan pointed this out on Tumblr by sharing a side-by-side photo of Taylor in “Out of the Woods” and the glum pic of her on the boat from three years ago, and Taylor made quite a point by liking the collage — oh snap! What’s more, in the video, she’s seen sinking underwater, which is seemingly a metaphor to the relationship going “overboard.” That’s not the only reference to the 21-year-old, either! While singing about his paper airplane necklace, which she was photographed wearing while they were together, Taylor rips a necklace off her neck and throws it over a cliff. Get it, girl! Oh, and there’s also the fact that it premiered on New Year’s Eve, a very special date in Haylor history, as it’s when they were photographed kissing after Taylor performed on New Year’s Rockin’ Eve in 2013!
Things clearly didn’t work out between Haylor, but the singer has clearly moved on these days. Things are getting super serious between Taylor and Calvin Harris, who began dating in Feb. 2015, and even though her rep confirmed they’re not moving in together, they’ve been inseparable since Tay ended her tour in mid-December. The 31-year-old joined the Swifts for a Christmas vacation in the mountains, and then Taylor supported her man at his New Year’s Eve show in Las Vegas…love it!
Meanwhile, Harry’s love life is also heating up these days! One year after he was linked to Taylor, the hunky Brit briefly dated Kendall Jenner — although they never admitted it — and it looks like they’re definitely rekindling things. The pair spent New Year’s together, and were photographed packing on major PDA on more than one occasion during the trip.
HollywoodLifers, what do you think of Taylor wearing this blue dress for the video? Just a coincidence — or a total nod to Harry?
