6 Fashion Lessons From the ‘Gossip Girl’

Hi Everyone. :))

You girls got me all curious about ‘Gossip Girl’. And in my case curiosity killed the cat. πŸ˜› I went through hundreds of photos of the ‘Gossip Girls’ in the past few days. Each one was better that the previous ones. Now I am gutted why we don’t get such awesome clothes here in India. 😐

Anyway, I thought it’d be fun to take some fashion lessons from such awesomeness. :))

Here we go! πŸ™‚

1. Blazers – A Must Have
Every girl should invest in a number of blazers for her wardrobe. One can start from a simple structured black blazer and then go on to the fancier versions. Blazers add so much chicness to the look and take a simple outfit to another level. I especially love the gold one in the pic below.

2. All BlackΒ 

‘All black’ looks are ALWAYS sexy. Play with structures, cuts and textures. You can add bags and clutches in different colours to break the monotony.

3. Mixing Prints:

Loved how the prints are mixed in each photo shown below.

  • Stripes with dots
  • Floral with dots
  • Floral with stripes ( same color tones)
  • Bigger loops with smaller loops
  • Tartan with slanted stripes.
Best Tip : If you find ‘print on print’ too overwhelming, just add a jacket / blazer/ vest in block shade on top.Β

4. Vest: Don’t they just make the otherwise simple looks stand out?

5. Shimmer and Sequins can be worn during the day : Totally!

Keep one piece shimmery and rest of it toned down. You can rock sequins and shimmers during the day, The Fashion Police wouldn’t shoot you. πŸ˜›

6. Statement Necklaces : You just HAVE to invest in some gorgeous statement neckpieces. No Excuse, anymore. πŸ™‚

    I love Gossip Girl, and I totally agree with all of these! Love Serena’s gold blazer in the 5th point! Watch it, it can get too dramatic and Serena is annoying but it’s still quite addictive πŸ˜€

    • Rati says:

      what time does it show nandini… and you in delhi?

      • Nandini says:

        I think Zee Cafe or something, I’m not sure πŸ™ but I downloaded the series. Yup I got here this morning πŸ˜€ let me know when and we’ll catch up! xx

        • Rati says:

          I would also be downloading the series. Yeah should catch up soon. :))

          • Aarbee says:

            Aaaah Gossip Girl! Serena is soooo annoying but so gorgeous! And Blair is adorable! I downloaded the entire series and watched a few months back πŸ™‚
            Girls do lemme know when you are meeting, would love to join in!

            • Nandini says:

              I find Leighton Meester much more good-looking, cuz Blake Lively only has the ‘assets’ πŸ˜› face-wise she looks rather old and ordinary imo. I’m waiting for the last season to be available online, it premiered yesterday I think πŸ™‚ would love to meet up, will surely let you know!!! xx

              • Aarbee says:

                Oh I watched the season 6 premiere yesterday, it wasn’t gr8, but there were some awesome scenes between Dan n Georgina, real funny. N some hot action between the ‘Chair’ couple ;P
                I love Blair for her SOH, but yeah Serena is so annoying! Although I do think she makes a better clotheshorse than Blair apart from the b*ob show.
                Great, looking forward to meeting up when you’re here πŸ™‚

    i loved gossip girl..i came to know abt their fashion saga through tlc.. πŸ˜€
    ur tips are super awesome..I wl try to incorporate everything..

    I LOVE GG! The storylines are way over the top, but the writers and actors are aware of that and don’t take themselves too seriously. The last season debuted last night and I’m so sad it’s going to end : ((. Well, there’s always reruns…
    Thanks for putting this together, it’s a must read for any GG fan…totally cool! I’m on board with all tips, but esp. with 2 and 5. I’d also recommend googling “Lily Van Der Woodsen” she plays Serena’s (blonde one) mom on the series and has the most impeccable style. I totally want to be her when I grow up — style-wise, not the drama filled life part!

    • Rati says:

      Please take the blame for getting me addicted to GG’s photos. πŸ˜› I am going to download and catch up.. ONLY for the clothes. I mean stills are fine but the beauty of seeing the clothes moving is different. πŸ™‚

      I’d totally google ‘Lily Van Der Woodsen’ and let you know what i feel. πŸ˜€

    Never seen gossip girl but these fashion trends r super. Loved the vests n jacket tip. Have a wedding in Delhi in Dec n I think a smart jacket on jeans n a flowery top might be good for a casual dinner out with family:).

    • Rati says:

      oh wow!! you coming to Delhi? If you find time, we’d catch up. :)) It would be super cold in Dec here. Pack well. Boots and lovely trenches would totally be apt for delhi’s winters. Welcome to the capital.. πŸ™‚

  9. Desimom says:

    Have heard so much abt Gossip Girl. Haven’t watched it though… With Fall season here, blazers & statement necklaces going to be seen a lot more πŸ™‚

  10. Bhumika says:

    Amazing post..loving all the pics πŸ™‚

  11. Ritu R says:

    awesome compilation Rati!!! need to stuff my wardrobe afresh!

  12. kritika says:

    i love serena vanderwoodsen in GG series.. but fashion nd style wise lily’s taste is very good.. loved this post rati di

  13. Leez says:

    I love Leighton Meester but the show is too much drama for me. πŸ™‚ People watch it for their impeccable fashion anyway.

    • Rati says:

      Thanks kritika and ritu. :))

      I’d check out Leighton Meester πŸ™‚

      • Aarbee says:

        Oh God this post and the discussion is so exciting for a GG fan like me! Cant help commenting on each comment πŸ™‚
        Leighton Meester is more preppy fashion, but Serena (apart from the b*ob show) has more style, I think πŸ™‚

  14. Ramya says:

    Hi Rati!! LOVEEED this article… I like Blair’s style more than Serena’s. And the tips u’ve given r just awesome. I dont think I would be able to do the print mixing properly though. I think the ppl who r gifted with a fashionable eye (like u) would be able to do that really well! πŸ™‚
    I loved ur previous look. The black lace dress was just so beautifully feminine n u looked like a celeb in the pics πŸ™‚
    HAvent visited for the past couple of days but now back to drooling over the awesome OOTDs! πŸ™‚

  15. Ritika says:

    My favourite-est outift from the whole show is the one where Serena is wearing that gold sequin jacket with bright blue trousers. I mean, it’s such a tough combo and she rocked it so well ! Plus can you believe it she went to recognize a dead body in that dress 😐
    Somethings just happen on gossip girl only…

  16. Karishma says:

    Blake Lively is my fashion inspiration! Love her style SO much!

  17. Akanksha says:

    Indeed a great post and loved your collection from gossip girls set… I love their clothing style too… If to talk about Serena (Blake Lively) she carries each dress flawlessly ( In real and in real ) … she is a portrayal of a inclusive glamorous life style…

    Blair, the pretty B, again carries her subtle self in the most gracious manner. Besides them even Lilly is my favorite.

    Their fashion sense is extraordinarily contemporary πŸ™‚

    P.S- Loved reading your post
