As Serena van der Woodsen on Gossip Girl, Blake Lively wears sexy, bohemian and luxurious clothing. For summer, channel her style with nautical inspired pieces that are casual and sensual. Look for sleeveless tops with low scoop necks to show cleavage, or belly baring shirts that skim a few inches over your belly button.
I think that Serena’s worn a lot of strips on GG, and when you’re going for a Sailor look, it’s hard to pass them up. But I also can picture Serena rocking some super short Sailor style denim shorts with some platform wedges that will show off her long expanse of tanned legs.
Be inspired by the colors of navy blue, rich reds and golds. Details like anchor jewelry of clusters of buttons and striped patterns also read right into this theme. Juxtapose hard metals (in gold or brass, not silver) with earthy and natural materials like wood and rope. I think a cool braided rope bracelet (or belt) would be an awesome addition.
For makeup, Serena would go for bronzed skin, and light lips. Focus on your eyes with some simple black eyeliner and mascara to give a little polish to the look.
