We're 99% Sure We Know Taylor Swift's Date-Proof Red Lipstick

It's her signature shade.

There's a school of thought that I simply can't subscribe to: the idea that you should never wear red lipstick on a date. As a red-lipstick devotee, I will wear red lipstick for any situation, including and not limited to a date. I do see the predicament, however—red lipstick is a bold choice, and it may not be ideal to end up with it smeared all over your (or your date's) face.

At least one person agrees with me—Taylor Swift. This weekend, Swift and rumored boyfriend Travis Kelce stepped out for date night in New York City. For their Saturday-night date, Swift went with her signature red lipstick. If you were one of the many people in various comment sections talking about how you could never wear red lipstick on a date, I get it.
