Channel your Inner Blair Waldorf
I was so upset when they took the O.C. off the air. I never thought they'd be able to match Summer and Marissa's fantastic wardrobe and unique styling. That is until Gossip Girl started. I had read all the books before the t.v. show so I had a vision of what I expected Blair to look like in my imagination.
I think the stylists have done a perfect job making Blair a trendy prepster. She rocks the classic button down shirt with a tailored blazer but always has some sort of unexpected edge to her outfit. In almost every outfit she has on a pair of tights ranging from opaque black to lacy to fire engine red.
Blair's personal style has seeped into my own. I've noticed an abundance of plaid, oxford shirts, and patent mary-janes in my wardrobe since the show's start. I've also been trying to wear her signature red lipstick to spice up a ho-hum outfit.
