Although I haven't watched Gossip Girl in years, I still find inspiration in various Gossip Girl wardrobes. This week's Fashionista reminded me of the lady-like Blair Waldorf. The half-down half-up hair trend is not over, and this Fashionista makes it work with her Blair inspired bow. The rest of her ensemble followed suit. Blair Waldorf is the queen of tights, and I love that this Fashionista chose to wear them under high-waist shorts. She topped off the outfit with a thin black sweater layered under a fitted leather jacket. A circle scarf and cheetah printed flats finished off her Gossip Girl inspired look. Her sleek cross-body bag worn casually over one shoulder kept her look Blair worthy.
To get this look focus on the Blair essentials. Think headbands, bows, interesting tights, ruffles and anything refined as well as lady-like. This Fashionista chose generally muted colors, but if you're looking for something a little more bright, I would channel Blair through a little black dress under a bold fall jacket. Choose a pair of patterned tights, I love H&M's selection. Throw on your favorite ballet flats and add one or many large brooches to the lapel of your jacket. For extra Blair style, add a sheer button-up under the LBD with the collar neatly peeking over.
For further Blair inspiration stalk photos of the Muse herself. Add a dash of Dior inspiration, and if you feel that this look is too put together for your taste, get inspired by the Ashish spring 2012 RTW collection. It is a representation of an edgy version of Blair Waldorf. If you wore a uniform in high school, I dare you to channel your inner Blair and wear it to class this week!
