It’s been more than a decade since Gossip Girl first aired and we are still not nearly over the dramatic TV series. Besides the ever-so-happening high school drama, the outfits donned by the two leading ladies – Blair Waldorf and Serena Wan Der Woodsen – have stayed with us through the years. All of us have dreamed of dressing like Blair and Serena and, guess what, we finally did it! We recreated a few of our favourite looks of them with similar recommendations for you to look just like the hottest Upper East Siders, but for less!
So, here you go.
The one thing I love about channelling Serena Van Der Woodsen is that she has a chic outfit for literally every occasion! But my favourite is this classic semi-formal ensemble. Every piece in this outfit is such a statement piece–blue jeans, a crisp white shirt, a striped blazer and knee-high boots. It’s my favourite boardroom-to-bar outfit!

Who doesn’t enjoy pairing whites and blacks? I do and so did Serena! I like this look from Gossip Girl where she has paired a classic white shirt with a pair of black shorts. I decided to add some oomph to the entire look by wearing a texturised faux leather bag and pearl-embellished pumps. Doesn’t it look chic and classy at the same time? The best part is that you can wear this to a casual outing and a fancy party alike!
Well, it isn’t just Serena who was a fan of pairing a white shirt with shorts. Blair loved experimenting with the classic number with different colours. After all, friends who slay together, stay together. So, we’ve picked the one we thought is the chicest among all. Of course, it’s a pair of olive green shorts in a paperbag waist. What else!
Of all the looks of Serena, this one right here in classic blue, the Pantone Color of the Year 2020, is still relevant almost a decade later and the simplest to recreate. Not to mention Serena Van Der Woodsen-approved! All you need is a blue dress et voilà. LBDs and reds, you can relax. Now, I know S comes with a lot of accessories but when she doesn’t, she quirks it up like here with pink shoes.

Oh, this look takes me back to high school! Remember those days when we used to dress up for annual functions and put our most dramatic foot forward? Well, you can indeed make a statement like Blair with a fancy hairband and a paperbag navy blue skirt paired with white ballerinas. How cool, right?

While Blaire has a school-girly vibe, Serena, on the other hand, has a more mature style. In her looks, you’ll always find that inherent Upper East Side vibe that exudes confidence and makes her look like she means business. Quite effortlessly, she oscillates between boho-chic and a suave socialite. Thus, trust Serena to always layer a sexy bodycon with a structured jacket, a look that she has rocked more than once in Gossip Girl and truly has my heart. I think I can wear this outfit to work for a week straight!
