Taylor Swift’s “Style” Video Is Just Fine, Thanks
Smoky, seaside clip for the cool-kid 1989 tune.
Inside baseball time so BATTER UP: the upper echelon of pop superstars seem hellbent on making these last 48 hours a living hell for anyone who is required to breathlessly cover their every move on the internet, and with that I present the video for Taylor Swift's "Style," the only song on 1989 that could be mistaken for a Chromatics song. I'm looking through my timeline (naturally) and seeing people disappointed by this particular clip, and on a level I get it—after the "Blank Space" video, which was Taylor's most endearing and wonderfully self-deprecating visual released to date, the video for "Style" (aka the one 1989 song where your indie-obsessed best friend who "doesn't watch TV" can even cop to liking) is relatively plain, with seaside vistas and smoky hunk-gaze stares that don't exactly match the Drive-esque aesthetic the song triggers. Oh well! The video isn't, like, terrible or anything—it's just a video, and it's still a good song. Watch it above.
