Spotted: Gossip Girl Fashion, 1 Year Later

An ode to our favorite Upper East Siders, one year later. 


City Style commemorates the 1 year anniversary of the Gossip Girl finale with our favorite style moments from the show that  will forever  leave its mark the fashion landscape.

I’ve been watching Gossip Girl since the night it first premiered when I was in 5th grade. The show has no doubt had an influence on both my love of fashion and my love of New York City. One year ago from yesterday, December 17th, the finale aired and I said goodbye to characters I had (literally) grown up watching.

Fashion was an essential part of the Gossip Girl phenomenon. Show creator Josh Schwartz said, “we wanted fashion to be a character on the show.” What was magical though was how costume designer, Eric Daman, used this notion to mold the characters’ identities. Each character’s sense of style reflected who they were. In an interview, Leighton Meester said, “I put on the clothes, and suddenly I’m [Blair].” Daman transformed Blair, Serena, Chuck, Jenny and Nate (no, not Lonely Boy) into fashion icons and established Gossip Girl’s as a fashion power.

If preppy Blair isn’t your taste, then most likely the fun, sexy, and fashion forward Serena van der Woodsen is! Welcome to part 3 in this 4 day Gossip Girl series. Today, I am going to transform Serena’s iconic and expensive style to something that fits everyone’s budget. So ladies who were expecting a Chanel bag look elsewhere!



Striped linen blazer $39 Zara

This is a versatile piece, but be ware! If you wear it buttoned as shown you might be the next victim on Fashion Police. You do not want this Joan Ranger (salute!) coming after you!

Guess by Marciano Beaded skirt $198 as seen in NYLON Magazine

Worn under the blazer, you will be the talk of the town! Worn with a basic nude knit tee is the best way to go with this outfit since stripes and sequins is a lot!

Rachel Zoe Margaux Snakeskin Miniaudiere $234

It’s one of the purse/clutches you will be wearing all the time. It’s a neutral. From lunch to an evening on the town, this clutch will take you from day to night!
