The tickets are secured, and the outfits are ready. Taylor Swift is in town, and for thousands of fans, no detail has been spared.
As the 12-time Grammy winner arrives at Gillette Stadium for the first of three sold-out performances on her Eras Tour, Swifties are descending on Foxborough en masse, dressed in their Taylor-best.
The Eras Tour is itself a showcase of Swift’s evolving style and sound over her career. Colors and themes from albums, including “Fearless,” “Evermore,” “Speak Now,” “Reputation,” and “Lover,” among others, will wash over the stadium and all roads leading to it.
Fans flood the stadium with pink and glitter looks in nothing short of a fashion show. Here are some of the best looks we’ve seen so far, from cowgirl hats to cheerleading outfits:

“I wanted to stand out,” Ashley said. “Plus, I love the album ‘Lover.’ It says so much about feminism.” pic.twitter.com/FXKQxPDgPN

One fan coordinated with the merch truck, which sports colorful images of Swift throughout her albums.
Some Swifties who graduated from New York University last year alongside Taylor Swift — who received an honorary degree — wore NYU Class of 2022 shirts.
