Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift are one of the biggest celebrity couples to make it official in 2023.
They are polar opposites when it comes to fashion.
Swift sways toward classic style, while Kelce prefers to experiment with bold, oversized looks.
Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce's budding romance continues to delight football and music fans alike.
The pair seemingly confirmed their relationship after being photographed holding hands in New York City on October 14, weeks after Swift, 33, made headlines for attending a Kansas City Chiefs game against the Chicago Bears on September 24. While the "Midnights" singer is known for keeping romantic relationships out of the public eye, she and Kelce, 34, increasingly appear happy to share the affection they have for each other with the world.
But while NFL fans and Swifties may consider the pair a match made in heaven, with both being stars in their respective industries, they are polar opposites when it comes to fashion.
As Business Insider's Amanda Krause previously reported, Swift is known for her simple "girl next door" aesthetic. Kelce, on the other hand, has showcased that when it comes to fashion, he's anything but the "boy next door." Take a look.
Kelce has long shown that he doesn't shy away from spicing up classic silhouettes with bold prints.
For the NFL Honors in 2018, Kelce stepped onto the red carpet wearing a dapper two-piece navy suit with a bold, floral-printed jacket.
Kelce, who at this time had played for the Chiefs for five years, paired his ensemble with a coordinating bow tie, a trio of silver chain necklaces, and navy loafers, which he wore with baby-blue socks.
The football star channeled his inner Macklemore in a fuzzy coat during the All-Star Weekend celebrations in 2022.
Kelce paired his eye-catching jacket with blue jeans, a teal button-up shirt, a silver chain necklace, and black square-rimmed sunglasses.
The jacket is reminiscent of the one Macklemore famously wore in his 2012 music video for "Thrift Shop," although the rapper's vintage jacket was floor-length while Kelce's stopped at his waist.
Kelce proved men's formalwear doesn't have to be boring when he wore a baby-blue suit to the 2022 ESPYs.
When it comes to red-carpet fashion, some men find it easier to experiment while others prefer to stick to classic silhouettes and color schemes.
Kelce is clearly one of the latter, as he showed at the 2022 ESPYs. He made a splash on the red carpet in a baby-blue Alexander McQueen suit, according to WWD. He paired it with white sneakers and a button-up shirt that featured quirky black-and-white prints.
Kelce was dressed to win when he touched down for the 2023 Super Bowl in a cozy all-brown ensemble.
Kelce wore brown corduroy pants with multicolored Nike sneakers, a whimsical Kid Super knit sweater, and a dark-brown wide-brimmed hat designed by Nick Fouquet, according to an Instagram post he shared at the time.
He paired the entire ensemble with a mustard-yellow Bottega Veneta Intrecciato Duffle Bag. A medium-sized version of the bag currently retails for $5,400 on the site.
Kelce opted for a Dior suit with a twist for his SNL monologue in March.
At first glance, the double-breasted mauve suit that Kelce wore for his opening monologue appears to have a classic silhouette.
But knowing Kelce's love for experimenting with fashion, it's no surprise that on closer inspection, the suit, which People reported is a Dior design, features a funky sleeve-like detail poking out from behind the lower half of the jacket.
Kelce put his own spin on the Canadian tuxedo while getting the crowd going at Kelce Jam in April.
Continuing celebrations following the Chiefs' win at the 2023 Super Bowl, Kelce hosted a music festival featuring artists such as Machine Gun Kelly, Loud Luxury, and Rick Ross.
The festival, dubbed Kelce Jam, took place in Kansas City on April 28 and saw Kelce himself get up on stage to entertain the crowd. His look for the evening consisted of a light-wash, denim-on-denim ensemble and a matching bucket hat. Kelce paired his denim items with a white shirt, silver jewelry, and white sneakers.
Kelce and his mom Donna coordinated in monochrome looks for the Netflix premiere of "Quarterback" in July.
Kelce went for an oversized pale-green Lanvin suit, according to WWD. In the spirit of blending formal and sportswear, he paired it with a matching T-shirt and green-and-white sneakers.
Donna Kelce had a similar approach to her look for the evening. She opted for beige suit pants and a matching embroidered shirt and cardigan but added a pop of color with silver shoes and a cherry-red clutch.
Kelce arrived in New Jersey ahead of the Chiefs vs. New York Jets game wearing a mauve suit with edgy thread detailing.
Ahead of taking on the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, the same game where Swift showed up with some of her famous friends, Kelce made his presence known with an eye-catching taupe ensemble designed by LỰU ĐẠN, High Snobiety reported.
He paired the suit, which featured intentionally ripped edge detailing, with a black Louis Vuitton carry-on bag, black Chelsea boots, and a "Wayne's World" baseball cap.
Kelce sported a nearly all-black outfit later that day, adding a pop of color with a pair of green sneakers.
Kelce's second outfit of the day consisted of black striped trousers, a graphic T-Shirt that read "I'm not doing shit today," and lime-green sneakers.
He topped it all off with a different black baseball cap, which was embroidered with "New York" twice to pay homage to the city he was visiting.
Kelce and Swift's polar opposite style was put on display during their second public outing.
Swift tends to go for classic feminine attire, as demonstrated by the miniskirt and sheer, long-sleeve top that she wore on a date night in NYC with Kelce on October 15.
Kelce, on the other hand, showed off his love for bold, oversized fashion in cream-colored corduroy trousers and a matching jacket. He layered the jacket over a black T-shirt and completed the ensemble with white Nike sneakers.
