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

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

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…)
