Though I am not quite sure how often Serena Van Der Woodsen wore beanies,I think these looks are pretty representative of the fictional style icons. I loved using the same outfit and switching up the accessories to the Gossip Girl character’s’ respective tastes. I included Serena’s signature side braid and Blair’s signature headband. Though both the characters (and the actresses who play them) have amazing senses of fashion, Serena is a little bit more on trend and Blair aims for a classic lady-like vibe. That’s why I chose to add a trendy sweatshirt to my Serena look, while I chose a classic trench coat for Blair. Since this show was a huge source of style inspiration for me in high school and college, it seemed only right to dedicate an outfit post to them (and probably it won’t be the last).
And just sayin’, I went to the Rebecca Minkoff sample sale yesterday, and I HAD to show off some of my amazing new purchases in this post! (The sample sale is going on now through the end of the week on 5th Avenue and 29th St!)
Be sure to let me know in the comments if you are a Blaire or a Serena! Personally, I can be either depending on my mood.
In this last photo I am trying (and epically failing) to make a Blake Lively/Serena face. Just wanted to point it out…
