Gossip Girl, We love you XOXO!
We think there’s no better TV version of ‘Clueless’ than the ‘Gossip Girl’ and we know you all agree! Who doesn’t love the uber fashionable, steamy lives of Serena Van Der Woodsen and Blair Waldorf? They taught us how to cultivate a signature style and own it. With a million reruns-binging, let’s recall all the style lessons they taught us!
1. What’s world without a lil’ pop of color?
Are you overdoing your greys, tans and whites? Well, then it’s time to shake up your wardrobe! Fit or flare, colors matter. Bright dress, Bright lips, Nude pumps is the way to go!
2.Print mixing is never out of style!
There’s something imperfectly perfect about mixed prints. Why be predictable when you rock print on print? If it’s too loud for your taste, just add a jacket / blazer/ vest in block shade on top.
3. Work the power prowess outfit!
Looking for office outfit inspiration? Remember the time Serena worked while all the upper-east siders busy colleging? Her take on business casual is far from boring and leans on the sexy side — true to Serena van der Woodsen nature. Who would’ve thought of wearing an LBD to work? Layer your LBD with a chic boyfriend blazer, color blocking with your IT bag.
4. Our Little J had a few tricks up her sleeve!
From Blair’s minion to a full grown rebel, Jenny Humphrey’s style has been chicest experimental wardrobe! Leave it to Jenny to add a downtown vibe to her girly frock by styling it with a motorcycle jacket, hoodie, and opaque tights. Add a little sexy to your outfit, by wearing different fabrics and stack up chain bracelets to show off your funky attitude.
5. Bohemian not equal to lazy!
Vanessa’s outfit always stands out, not only because of the bright colors, but also because she is always wearing an interesting pattern! Dressing like Vanessa = Risk taking. Skip your dark hued evening gown and opt for a geometric boho dress. Accessorise with some door knocker earrings, a statement necklace and you’re good to go!
