How to Dress Like...Blair Waldorf

I’ve covered Blair Waldorf’s best frenemy Serena Van der Woodsen, so now it’s time to look at the preppiest of the Gossip Girls; whether you love her or hate her, you can't deny that the girl's got serious style (and a seriously inexhaustible bank account). When experimenting with the Queen B's look, think classic, preppy, and effortlessly gorgeous, a la Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s—but don't forget to add your own sassy, modern twist!


Do: Wear bows. Whether you choose to have a bow in your hair, a bow on a necklace, or a bow on your ballet flats, this charming adornment adds femininity  to any ensemble.

Don’t: Hot-glue a bow-tie to your shirt collar. It doesn't have quite the same effect.

Do: Rock a headband. Blair is infamous for her fabulous (and sometimes ridiculous) headbands; even though they're just a hair accessory, they're practically a staple in her wardrobe!

Don’t: Spend a fortune on them. Headbands can be found at all sorts of stores; places like Forever21 carry on-trend items that are totally budget-friendly!

Do: Wear dresses. Whether wearing a casual day-dress, a sultry party look, or a show-stopping gown, Blair always looks chic. It’s extremely rare to find Blair in jeans; she's a true girly-girly who loves to show off her soft side (and her legs!)

Don’t: Fight your natural style. If you're more of a jeans-and-tee-shirt kinda girl, add femininity with a silk blouse or sparkly earrings. You don't have to wear a dress to look like a lady!

Do: Buy colorful/patterned tights. Blair can easily change a plain, conservative outfit into something flirty and attention-grabbing just by donning a pair of unique stockings.

Don’t: Dress like a neon glow stick. Hot yellow tights are never in fashion.

Do you love Blair's style, or would you rather rock jeans and a tee?
