15 Color-Blocked Rooms Inspired by Taylor Swift's Grammys Look

We can't get enough of Taylor's color-blocked Grammys outfit.

Related To:

If you missed the 58th annual Grammy Awards last night, then you missed Taylor Swift's killer Atelier Versace outfit — a coral crop top paired with a cheeky hot-pink skirt. Plus, she sported a brand-new bob that social media just couldn't handle. Taylor walked in with BFF Selena Gomez and walked out with three awards. That sounds like a pretty solid night in my book.

While people talk about her hair, I'm most enamored with that two-piece Versace outfit and its color-blocking perfection. I found 15 rooms that wear the look just as well as my girl. What do you think?
