Taylor Swift thinks fashion critics are “ignoring a really important point” behind why she chose to wear a leather harness accessory earlier this week.

The 25-year-old sported the racy accessory over a muscle t-shirt that reads ‘This Is My Fight Song’ while dining out in Los Angeles with friends on Tuesday.

The harness sent fans and fashion critics into an uproar, but Taylor has maintained a sense of humour over the critical response to her style choice.

“I think you’re ignoring a really important point here… That my harness and I are always ready for a zip line/rock climbing (sic),” she wrote on her Tumblr page Wednesday.

“Ask yourself.. Are you ready for extreme adventure should it present itself?

HARNESS LIFE 2015”

Taylor has previously spoken about her whimsical approach to fashion.

The star feels most beautiful in unplanned getups.

“When I feel really confident; I think it’s a spontaneous thing that happens every once in a while and I can never predict when, but there are sometimes when I just feel really confident, smiling and laughing,” she told Glam.com.

“I think in those [moments] when you do feel confident you should just live it up and appreciate it for the fact that it’s there, because I don’t think anybody is ever consistently always confident.”

Taylor also admitted in the interview she is somewhat lacking when it comes to maintaining a regular beauty regimen.

The Bad Blood songstress often breaks one cardinal beauty rule in particular.

“Sometimes I take my makeup off at night, sometimes I don’t,” she said. “I’m pretty lazy when it comes to like a regimen or anything like that.”
