At the Rodarte show in New York City, Taylor Swift's lace dress, pert red lips and polished low ponytail struck just the right balance of youthful and sophisticated. To achieve the delicate hairstyle, part your strands deep and on the side before loosely tying it in back and tucking one side just above the ear. For a more a subdued take, use a bobby pin like Swift's or dress it up with a sparkly slide barrette. What makes Swift's version really stand-out are the chunky, not wispy, locks around the face, which add a dimensional flair.
