Taylor Swift wears pants and calls it personal growth in Harper's Bazaar
Taylor's love for dresses (the sparklier the better) is well-documented, and she admits that she now owns hundreds of them. "Because I'm in a predicament where I can't wear a dress twice or else it's pointed out in magazines, so unfortunately I have to shop for dresses all the time."
She pretty much hates pants and says she only wears jeans in the winter for "survival reasons." But she was down to pose in them for Harper's as a symbol of her maturity. "I think doing something that's different, that's out of your comfort zone is important," she says. "Personal growth, let's call it that."
Taylor's ex-boyfriends might hope she'd define personal growth a little differently, but for now... wearing pants for a magazine cover shoot will have to suffice.
The journalist who interviewed Taylor, Laura Brown, says they're also symbolic because she wears the pants in her career. Get it? "When I'm in management meetings when we're deciding my future, those decisions are left up to me," Taylor says. "I'm the one who has to go out and fulfill all these obligations, so I should be able to choose which ones I do or not. That's the part of my life where I feel most in control."
