Taylor Swift is back in New York. Not only that, she was seen walking on the streets of the Big Apple hand in hand with Travis Kelce. This was the first time the two lovebirds were spotted together since their rumored romance kicked off last month.

Swift lit up the nightlife with her oversized gray trench coat over an all-black ensemble. Just the correct attire to tackle the rainy weather in New York. Her beautiful blonde lock was tied behind in a ponytail and dangled left and right on every step. She topped her evening look off with a signature touch of red lipstick.

Kelce, on the other hand, exuberated the fashionista persona he had created for himself. The Kansas City Chiefs tight end donned brown pants, white sneakers, and an embroidered cream-colored jacket. Hand in hand, the couple shimmered like glowing stars in the Milky Way.

Amidst the chatter of the paparazzi, the glamorous duo made their way to Nobu in NYC and grabbed dinner. Later, to everyone’s surprise, they together appeared on “Saturday Night Live.”

This was the pair’s first outing since they whizzed off in Kelce’s convertible after the Chicago Bears victory. In the meantime, they missed catching up during the Super Bowl winner’s 34th birthday, so this outing could be the much-needed alone time they needed.

Social media shows mixed reactions to seeing Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce together in New York

Even though Taylor feels like Travis is the ‘right and hot guy’, a lot of people are quick to dismiss their budding relationship as a PR stunt. That’s probably why some even try to find some sort of blemish in the otherwise perfect chemistry.

Few brought up the past of the 12-time Grammy winner with ex-boyfriend British actor Joe Alwyn. A side-by-side comparison was made, and social media was left divided. In one click, Travis Kelce is seen holding onto Taylor Swift’s bluff purse, a sign of chivalry.

On the other hand, an old photo of Alwyn and Swift dining at a restaurant popped up. In it, Alwyn can be seen occupying the comfort of the booth while Taylor is sitting open and smacked near the pathway. 

The ‘You Belong with Me’ composer apparently confided in some of her close friends that Travis Kelce is the man she was hoping to find. Not to mention Kelce, too, finds her to be the Chiefs’ lucky charm. The Kansas franchise hasn’t lost a game since Taylor Swift started attending their games (3 for 3).
