Can you believe it’s over nine years since the first episode of Gossip Girl hit the small screens? Supplying us with an inside look at the rich kids of Manhattan’s Upper East Side, we obsessed over our favourite character’s scandals, heartbreaks and coming-of-age makeovers. To mark the 9th anniversary of the first episode, we’re looking at to the endless sartorial inspiration each character supplied, and how to own their looks this season.
BLAIR: PREPPY PRINCESS
Always one step ahead of the style set, Blair’s wardrobe exudes a classic beauty with a certain regal air. Think preppy peter pan-collared shirts, with wrap around skirts and cream flats for that polished, put-together feel.
JENNY: THE REBEL
If there’s anyone who enjoyed a style revolution in Gossip Girl, it was little Jenny Humphreys. From shy teen to rebel queen, Humphreys draws on hardwearing elements to create a sartorial world of black-on-black. Think biker jackets, band tees and platform boots for grunge perfection.
SERENA: BOHO BABE
The IT girl with a mysterious past, Serena Van Der Woodsen has a talent for throwing on all the trends and making them work with effortless perfection. Her surfer girl waves lend her look to a more relaxed and less reformed feel to contrast Blair’s, and she’s seldom seen without a boho nod. Channel her look with a lace-up LBD, over the knee boots and a black fedora.
VANESSA: CLASHING COLOUR
Crossing the Brooklyn bridge metaphorically and physically, Vanessa Abrams’ eclectic closet is a reflection of her embracing both sides of the river. Ethnic prints and statement necklaces make way for fashion-forward separates and refined denim. Steal her style with a floral bardot top, high rise skinnies and top it off with a pair of statement heels for mismatched charm.
GEORGINA: MORE IS MORE
Rocker vibes and malicious intent have never made such a sartorially-pleasing combination. Georgina Sparks may be manipulative, but her sense of style is undeniable and her fierce style calls for endless fashion inspiration. Think statement jewellery, towering heels and accents of purple as a sure-fire way to nail her look.
