Taylor Swift wore mismatched shoes on Eras tour

Like many of us, Taylor Swift is probably a Sex and the City fan. The singer reinvented the Eras tour when it resumed on May 9, in part by incorporating songs from her latest album, The Tortured Poets Department. However, instead of just joining a new era, Swift decided to update her entire tour outfit, possibly taking inspiration from Sarah Jessica Parker's SATC character.

During the 1989 Eras tour, Swift typically wore a matching monochromatic ensemble that included a beaded fringed bra top and a miniskirt in one of several colors. But for her first Paris show, she decided to mix things up, and her shoes looked like something straight out of Carrie Bradshaw's fashion playbook.

Taylor's new look for 1989

As the intro to Swift's 2014 hit "Style" played, she took to the stage wearing a pink halterneck crop top and a mermaid blue high-waisted skirt. Roberto Cavalli custom-designed these two ombre pieces, just like her pre -1989 looks.

She paired the outfit with mismatched custom Christian Louboutin high-heeled ankle boots - the same magenta and blue colors as her outfit.

Carrie Bradshaw Inspiration

SJP is probably very proud of Swift's imaginative shoe choices. In the Season 3 episode "Escape from New York," Carrie Bradshaw steps out in mismatched Louboutin strappy heels, one in light blue and the other in metallic pink, much like Swift did in 1989 new shoes.

As Parker explained years later, Carrie's shoes were entirely intentional, and she and SATC costume designer Patricia Field chose to wear one pair of every pair they received. "Maybe because both are delicious colors and look harmonious with the dress, but also because we just love doing each," she wrote in an Instagram comment.

In the decades since the episode aired, Parker has continued the tradition of wearing mismatched shoes. In October, she donned a pair of $450 heels from her own SJP footwear line, which includes one black and one champagne-colored pair. Not only are they sold this way (this pair is currently sold out), she also proudly sells other mismatched pairs.

Given their shared love of writing, it makes sense that Swift would identify with Bradshaw. But now they also share some fashion inspiration.
