Taylor Swift stepped out looking chic as ever in NYC recently, wearing a pair of H&M burgundy denim shorts (grab a lighter red, similar pair here). She paired them with a navy cardigan and a simple white blouse, complimenting her girl-next-door hairdo. But she can’t fool us! We know those cat eyes of hers are scoping out the city for a good time. Our only question is, where’s her BFF Lorde?
