Lately we’ve been loving recreating the style of various television characters. We’ve already done Pretty Little Liars, and it’s time to move on to another fashion-forward show: Gossip Girl! Today, we will be recreating Blair Waldorf’s style.
Okay, okay, okay, so that was a LOT of pictures. But we just can’t get enough of her style! It is a perfect mix of classy, girly, preppy, and fun. Blair never goes a day without wearing bold tights, but she manages to keep them from looking trashy or tacky. It seems as though everything in her closet is straight from Chanel! And, of course, no Blair Waldorf outfit would be complete without a headband.
The shirt above is exactly something that Blair would wear. It is preppy, but unique and the subtle black accents pop against the white. 59.00, urbanoutfitters.com
This skirt is cute and flouncy, and shows off the perfect amount of leg without the threat of becoming un-classy. Tuck the shirt into this to give a perfectly matching base to the outfit. 59.00, urbanoutfitters.com. NOTE: This skirt also comes in white, and while that wouldn’t go with this outfit, it will look amazing against tanned legs.
Okay, so according to the pictures above of Blair’s style, you would think that this outfit would call for bright red tights. However, these thigh-high socks match perfectly with the rest of the outfit, and you know that Blair always has to match. 34.00, urbanoutfitters.com
Yes, we did use these preppy, chic shoes in our Spencer Hastings outfit. However, if you compare that post to this post, you would find that Spencer’s and Blair’s styles are quite similar. 69.00, urbanoutfitters.com
This outfit would not be complete without a headband! To get Blair’s iconic hairstyle, curl your hair using a large barrel curling iron. Lightly spray it with hairspray and run your fingers through the curls to keep them from getting stiff. Slide the headband into your hair, making sure that there is hair in the front of the headband to frame your face.
Finish the whole look with a long, soft trench coat in any color other than black. Leave it unbuttoned so that your fabulous outfits can still be admired! This one is from Burberry, so we’re not even going to tell you the price, but you can find similar ones from any other brand. Make sure to splurge a little bit, though, because they need to be good quality!
That’s all for now. Thanks for reading, and coming up will be posts on how to emulate Serena van der Woodsen’s style, along with Jenny Humphrey and Vanessa Abrams. Remember to keep checking back in every couple of days…you never know what might be in store for you! Stay tuned!
