The lead characters, Blair Waldorf and Serena van der Woodsen, were always dressed to thrill, whether it was summery brights in the Hamptons or jewel-toned silk for a debutante ball.
While Blair and Serena led the style set on the series, real-life fashionistas took notice of the show’s clothing choices and put together their own imitation outfits. The Blair Waldorf fashion trend reigned supreme until the show ended in 2012, but the looks of all the characters are so fresh and fab that they’re still turning heads today.
Here, we take a look at some of the best Gossip Girl outfits, and how you can imitate their style with pieces from different clothing brands. Is your wardrobe edgy like Jenny Humphrey’s, or do you prefer Vanessa’s indie glam? No matter who your favourite GG character is, we know where to buy something for your Gossip Girl-inspired looks!
