When you first see the pictures of Taylor Swift and Lorde out shopping together, you wouldn't be remiss to think, "Wow, what a coincidence that they were both out at the same store at the same time!" But, you'd be mistaken — they're actually browsing the racks together. We can barely imagine more intriguing style mates, as Taylor's known for her girlie, retro style and Lorde's seemed to gravitate toward simpler pieces since emerging on the scene.
The best example we can think of? Lorde picked simple, embellishment-free Balenciaga for this year's Grammys, while Taylor wore this. And while the two chose coordinating colors for the California shopping trip, that's about where the similarities end. Taylor's in a sweet dress typical for her style, while Lorde picked all black and heavy lace-ups.
