For the occasion, she wore a a Dôen button-up tank top, a Chiefs windbreaker, black denim Ksubi shorts, and New Balance 550 sneakers.

To complete the look, the Swift sported her signature scarlet pout, crescent earrings from Jacquie Aiche, a pair of red and white sneakers and $3,450 Louis Vuitton Camera Box Bag, which does not adhere to NFL purse regulations.

Although the pair initially played it coy on whether they were dating, she later confirmed that before her first game day they had already spend a ‘significant amount of time’ together. 

‘I’m grateful for, because we got to get to know each other. By the time I went to that first game, we were a couple. I think some people think that they saw our first date at that game? We would never be psychotic enough to hard launch a first date,’ she told Time Magazine in December.

The Cats actress opted to style her blonde hair in a flirty ponytail and accessorized with a pair of Prada boots and gold jewelry.

Kathryn Cacho, who knit the beanie, told the Kansas City Star that she ‘crocheted it the night before the package was sent out.’

‘When I heard that she ordered from the store, I immediately thought I wanted to make her something to include in the package,’ the Swiftie explained. 

 As for seeing Swift wear the beanie, Cacho said she was ‘obviously super excited to see her actually wearing it and seeing the support from her fans is amazing.’

Swift made a fashionable appearance Kelce’s final game of 2023 on New Year’s Eve. 

Fans, unsurprisingly, went crazy for Taylor’s gameday fit, instantly spotting that she was wearing a duplicate of one of Kelce’s jackets.

His nickname for her, Tay-Tay, was adorably stitched onto one of the sleeves. 

Sarah Chapelle, who documents Swift’s fashion choices on the popular Instagram account TaylorSwiftStyled, provided details about the pop star’s look on social media. 

‘Her Chiefs varsity jacket is by the legendary Jeff Hamilton who became best known in the ’90s for his sports licensing within the NBA and NFL,’ Chapelle informed other Swifties.

‘Last week, Travis wore a very similar jacket also by Jeff Hamilton that differs from Taylor’s by its leather collar, cuffs, and hem. In its own way, this feels like a more fashion-forward way to reference Travis’ style, continuing her recent 87-dubbed accessories she’s worn to recent games but in a more ‘his & hers’ sort of way.’

After proving to be the Chief’s good luck charm, Swift kept her look simple as she watched her new favorite team win the AFC Championship game.

Ahead of the way, she was gifted a ring by Kelce’s mother Donna, which she wore to the game.

Emily Bordner, owner of EB and Co. and designer of the ring, recently told KMBC that she gifted Donna some pieces of jewelry in the hopes that they would be passed onto Swift, due to the mother of the Chiefs tight end already being a fan of her work.

‘We gifted Donna some pairs. We know that she loved our earrings. And so, we wanted to gift her even more of Kelce themed products. So, we sent those to her and then we were hoping that she would give them to Taylor. And she did,’ Bordner said.

Swift fans also noticed that Donna was wearing No. 87 jersey earrings that matched with the ring, following the AFC Championship.

‘It’s just been a crazy whirlwind and we’re just trying to take advantage of everything we can and sell as much as we can and show appreciation as much as we can for Donna and Taylor and everybody,’ Bordner continued.

Swifties had noticed a ‘TNT’ (likely Taylor and Travis) bracelet on the singer’s arm as another tribute to her nine-time Pro Bowl boyfriend.

The custom-made tennis bracelet was designed by Wove Made Inc., a Pennsylvania-based company. 

Additionally, Swift donned the ‘Chiefs Necklace’ from WEAR by Erin Andrews and BaubleBar.
