Gossip Girl Fashion for Less: Copy Serena’s Cheeky Sailor Style

Friday, July 8th, 2011

gossip girl fashion for less 1

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.

Gossip Girl Fashion for Less: Go for Nautical Fashion like Blair

Monday, July 4th, 2011

gossip girl fashion for less

Let’s get nautical! No one on TV wears cheeky theme clothing quite like the impeccable Blair Waldorf of Gossip Girl. She takes fashion very seriously, after all. And when she wears a sailor dress, she’s serious about it. And it’s not a bad commitment, as long as the dress looks more fashion than costume (I can almost hear Tim Gunn explaining that in a voiceover, I miss Project Runway.)

Summer is the perfect time to put this sailor look to the test. There is an actual episode of GG where Blair wears a sailor dress, and that’s part of my inspiration. But these are much more affordable options (minus one dress that is pretty pricey, but I couldn’t resist sharing.) I’ll let you decide on how matchy-matchy and thematic you’re willing to go, but these are my suggestions, which are all Blair-like in style. Coming up later this week I’ll have a complimentary post that will be centered on Serena van der Woodesen’s particular style affinity. (Why am I using such a big word? Not that “affinity” is SUCH a big word…)

Monday, October 4th, 2010

Touch of Eva

In Gossip Girl “Touch of Eva” Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester) wears a beautiful Reem Acra dress. It is from the Ready to Wear Spring 2010 collection.

  • You can wear florals in the fall, if the colors are warm as they are in this Reem Acra dress (peaches, browns, grays with a light blue.)
  • Copy this look by wearing any pleated floral dress and cinching your waist with a large statement belt.
  • When carrying a handbag, hold it in the crook of your elbow.
  • For this particular look, her face is pale and she has a neutral red stain on her lips.

Gossip Girl Fashion for Less: Blair’s Red Dress in Paris

Sunday, September 19th, 2010

Double Identity

The red ruffle dress Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester) wears on Gossip Girl in Paris is by Oscar de la Renta. But, since getting that dress is both impossible and impractical, I went looking for something more wearable for your average gal. What I found was a modern red dress with ruffle detailing for under $30. More than reasonable. And it’s of European design! Dress like Blair Waldorf for less, it might not be so hard.

Blair also wears a necklace. Something sparkly will do. But with this dress’s neckline, the exact similar sort of circular necklace wouldn’t look right.

In her hand, Blair has a long purple clutch. I know that red and purple can look fun together, but DEAR GOD why did she have this purple clutch? It should be black or oh God, any other color. I’d take blue or yellow or anything else. I think the problem is that it’s not even purple. It’s a magenta – not quite a pink. It just clashes. I refused to do purple, and gave you a cool red clutch instead. (She’s also wearing flip flops. Since ... Read More

GOSSIP GIRL Fashion for Less | ‘The Hurt Locket’ Episode

gossip girl fashion guide

I got a press release with this GOSSIP GIRL image that I wanted to share with you guys. It’s actually a really great GOSSIP GIRL fashion guide (“The Hurt Locket”) for those who like to stay up on that. It’s fun to see what designers each piece are from, although…let’s be honest – if they listed the prices of these items we’d cringe! What we in the real world need are GOSSIP GIRL fashion for LESS. The component of mixing winter whites with upcoming Spring make for an interesting outfit. A sweater dress in a white or cream is great when paired with a white bag with texture (like snakeskin or crocodile). They don’t say if Blake Lively was wearing any perfume for this scene, but I can practically smell the Donna Karan “Cashmere Mist” from here, so I’m also including that in the collage.
