Maybe Taylor Swift Just Really Likes Football

Swift seemingly hard-launched her rumoured new romance with “the boy on the football team.”

Hey Siri, play “You Belong With Me.” Fourteen years after Taylor Swift released her hit song, which references having a crush on her school’s popular football player, the singer accepted Kansas City Chiefs player Travis Kelce’s invitation to watch him play against the Chicago Bears at Arrowhead Stadium — and she brought her signature T-Swift style to the game.

After a series of romcom-like events, Swift basically broke the internet while cheering from Kelce’s family suite (alongside his mother, Donna) in a game day outfit decked out in the team’s signature red and white colours. She even included a swipe of her signature red lipstick, so you know it’s getting serious. (JK… or maybe not?)

Swift wore a white tank top and black denim shorts from Australian brand, KSUBI, as the base of her sporty ’fit. She then upgraded the look with pops of red including a crimson manicure and red, white and black New Balance 550 sneakers. The “Bejewelled” singer accessorized her football Sunday ensemble with gold and diamond jewellery, including a casual $14K necklace, from luxury jewellery brand Jared.

Naturally, the true star of the outfit was the alleged “exclusive” Kansas City Chiefs team jacket Swift wore, which fans speculate Kelce gave Swift to wear for the occasion — further fuelling rumours of their budding romance.

And real fans know that Swift is no stranger to relationship dressing. Who could forget Tom Hiddleston sporting an “I ♥ T.S.” white tank top while the couple were dating back in 2016? Other exes such as John Mayer, Taylor Lautner and Harry Styles have all been spotted wearing complementary outfits with Swift while they were together.

It seems like her *potential* new boyfriend has already hopped on this trend, too. Many fans were quick to point out that Kelce’s pre- and post-game outfit seemed like a classic Swift-approved Easter egg.

For his off-the-field Sunday look, Kelce wore a two-piece cream denim jacket and pants set with a painterly blue pattern. The KidSuper Studios outfit, which is aptly named the “1989 Bedroom Painting Set,” seems like a nod to Swift’s fifth studio album, “1989 (Taylor’s Version),” which she just so happens to be releasing next month. The football player accessorized the — allegedly — themed look with a stack of silver metal chain necklaces, including a 19-carat Cuban link piece, which were also from Jared. You know the saying: The couple that shops luxury together stays together!

Kelce’s apparent enthusiasm for Swift’s next album falls in line with how unapologetically interested he’s been in Swift — both on a romantic and fan level — in recent months.

After attending an Eras Tour concert back in July, Kelce explained how he tried (and failed) to give Swift a friendship bracelet with his number on it. Fast forward a few months later, and the football player publicly shared that he “threw the ball in her court” in regards to his game invitation to Swift, which she evidently took him up on. For non-football fans, this has been more exciting than Super Bowl Sunday! (Unless Rihanna‘s performing, of course.)

Swifties seem generally quite supportive of Kelce and Swift’s new romance, with fans cracking an abundance of jokes about how Swift has finally found a potential partner who not only matches her level of success, but is also significantly taller than her. (Swift is five feet 10 inches tall, which is teensy compared to Kelce’s six feet five inches. We love that for her.)

Although this was the duo’s first public outing, many fans are rooting for them to make it official, with some saying that the relationship “will literally be the closest thing America has to a royal couple.” And after all eyes were on them the entire game, the pair were seen leaving the stadium in Kelce’s convertible, making for a very cinematic end to their evening. Who knew football could be so compelling?
