Week 12. Gossip Girl. My pastiche of Blair Waldorf

For this post I have pastiched Blair Waldorf. I particularly drew inspiration from Blair's White Party outfit. It’s not hard to copy the Manhattan princess' signature looks. Just get a classy dress, embellished headband, pretty flats, and a luxury bag, and you are ready to rock any event, Blair Waldorf style.

My Outfit:

Dress - CLUB MONACO (buy here), Bag - LOUIS VUITTON, Flats - MELISSA,  Headband - CLAIRE'S (similar here)

Week 12. Gossip Girl. Best Looks

I have already shared a few of Blair and Serena’s outfits on my INSTA-SHOP that you can check out now. I am going to update that page with more looks from the show soon, so be sure to follow me on Facebook for updates.

In today’s post I will feature a few of the best outfits worn by Manhattan's very own Upper East Side princesses and give you tips on how to steal their signature styles.


Blair Waldorf Prints

1. Prints and Patterns

The only high school mean girl we can admit to love, can masterfully mix & match her prints and textures. It might be a dangerous game to play, but young Waldorf knows how to win it. If you don't think you have enough style points to skillfully match floral skirts with striped tops, then you can always settle for a polka dot dress.

2. Headbands and hats

Quirky headbands and fancy hats are a signature element of Blair's look. But make sure you wear your headband at least an inch back from your hairline!

3. Bright contrasting colours

Blair Waldorf takes colour blocking to a whole new level.

1. Cleavage Power

Serena's Cleavage

Serena van der Woodsen knows how to turn heads! Her cleavage can be a bit risqué, but it might be the number one reason why the show has a surprisingly large male fan base.

2. Effortless chic

The Manhattan IT girl looks stunning even when it seems likeshe put onthe first thing she found on the floor when she rolled out of bed.

3. Maxi dresses

Maxi dresses can be either worn down for a walk in Central Park or worn up to a socialite event or wedding.

Week 12. Gossip Girl. How Blair and Serena would wear a Burberry trench

Style interpretation of Blair Waldorf's look

When Ben and I were in Park City last weekend, my father-in-law shook his head judgmentally when he saw me watching the beginning of Blair and Chuck's romance on TV. "What?," I said. "It’s just research for my blog!"

I wanted to re-watch one of my favourite TV shows from my younger years― Gossip Girl, and I found the perfect excuse for it! So here we are starting the 12th week of Pastiche.today―  the Gossip Girl Week.

For the first outfit post I wanted to show you how you can style the same Burberry trench coat in two different ways. The Blair Waldorf way, of course, includes her signature headband, which brightly contrasts the trench, a dress, a pair of flats, and a perfectly matching classic Lady Dior bag.

For channelling Serena Van der Woodsen, opt for skinny jeans and high heels for an overall hot, yet effortless vibe.
