Travis Kelce’s stylist calls Taylor Swift-inspired outfit theories ‘serendipitous coincidences’

Travis Kelce’s stylist has weighed in on the athlete’s now-famous curtain paints that fans joked belonged to Taylor Swift.

Last month, the Kansas City Chiefs tight end arrived for his game wearing a pair of brown crushed velvet pants, prompting immediate comparisons to the bronzed curtains featured in the background of the pop star’s “Midnights Mayhem With Me” TikTok series from 2022.

Although Swifties wanted to believe it was an homage to the budding relationship, Danielle Salzedo confirmed it was nothing but a twist of fate.

“They are playful, polished and cozy, which Travis always does so well,” Salzedo told Us Weekly. “I don’t have the answer to the [curtain theory].

“However, when people authentically connect, they start to have those serendipitous coincidences.”

Salzedo also said that Kelce, 34, has a “clear vision for his personal aesthetic” so he tends to style himself with her assistance, typically leaning on designers such as Louis Vuitton, Thom Brown, Tom Ford, Kid Super and Christian Dior.

“I know what he likes, and I find him options with brands we know are his vibe — while also looking for new ones yet to be discovered,” she explained.

After Kelce made headlines for his curtain-like pants, he further fueled the theories that they may have been inspired by the “Style” singer, 33, as he had captioned an Instagram post that showed off his ensemble, “keep it chill like Sauvignon Blanc.”

Salzedo also said the tight end already owned the blue-and-white set, pictured here, before meeting Swift, despite fans believing he bought it for the release of her “1989” re-record.

During Swift’s “Midnights” sessions, she revealed she loved to drink the crisp white wine.

While he didn’t speak to whether he was alluding to the “Out of the Woods” singer, he did defend the comfortable slacks.

Replying to sports commentator Charissa Thompson’s comment on his Instagram post asking if his pants were velvet, the NFL pro wrote, “No idea but they’re as comfy as they look!!”

Kelce seemingly has matched or complemented Swift’s albums beyond the “curtain pants.”

“I love the narrative being drawn to his looks,” the stylist admitted.

In their first public outing, Kelce wore a blue and white denim outfit that included a nod to her “1989” album in the style name after the Chiefs vs. Bears game on Sept. 24, which drove fans wild.

Salzedo, however, revealed that he had the outfit “in his closet” prior to dating Swift.

“I love the narrative being drawn to his looks,” she admitted.
