Taylor Swift: Test out fashion

Taylor Swift enjoys being young because she can "play around with" her style.

The 23-year-old singer has recently signed up as the face of Diet Coke.

As part of the collaboration, the US chart topper appears in behind-the-scenes videos discussing aspects of her life.

In a new teaser clip, Taylor talks about her deliberate efforts to dress age appropriately over the years.

"I think one of the things I've always tried to do was age gracefully. It was what I was trying to do when I was 18, to just be 18 and to not try and be 25. Hopefully when I'm 70 I won't be trying to be 25 either," Taylor shared in the behind-the-scenes video.

"When your 23 it's fun to play around with your style and edge it up sometimes."

Taylor is known for her reliably conservative style. She often chooses floor-length elegant dresses for red carpet events and sticks to classic cuts. As a result, when Taylor veers from her expected dress code, she makes the headlines for looking risqué.

"I find it hilarious when I'm going to an award show, and I'm wearing shorts for a performance, and the next day the headlines are like, 'Taylor goes edgy for her performance!' I'm like, 'I'm wearing more clothes than anyone here!'" Taylor laughed. "It's hilarious to watch that happen."

Taylor will kick off her The Red Tour, where she will visit stadiums and arenas in North America, on March 13. She shared how her wardrobe has been carefully crafted to ensure she sports a variety of different looks on stage.

"One of the main things I wanted to incorporate in The Red Tour is the element of surprise and the unexpected," she continued. "[You'll see me] change things up for different visuals, so one second you will be seeing this outfit then the next second you'll see another outfit. I like to think a good concert is like a good book in that it can take you away, help you escape for one night."
