Gossip Girl had some of the best fashion we’ll ever see on a TV set. Filmed in the heart of New York City, the preppy fashion of Blair Waldorf and casually glamorous looks from Serena van der Woodsen gave the show its authenticity. Shot in one of the fashion capitals of the world, it’s only right that the style be on par with the city.
Blake Lively brought her character, Serena, to life. This blonde bombshell carries an effortless aura with her smooth voice and beachy waves. Her long, lean legs look great in everything and her slightly sun-kissed skin carries a healthy glow. Always in the mood to be casually glamorous, here’s a look at Serena van der Woodsen’s 10 best Gossip Girl looks.
1. Prep school perfect
In a preppy look perfect for a transitioning fall day, Serena keeps it simple yet stylish. Showing off her long legs, she pairs navy high-waist shorts along with a button-down yellow blouse and boat shoes. With a bit of flare, she accessorizes a dynamic gold statement necklace along with a simple red bracelet and royal blue handbag.
2. Daytime glamour
You can be sure that Serena drew some looks in this outfit. Whether it was because she’s dressed for a night out in the bright daylight or because of how great she looks, someone definitely took notice.
In a bold cut-out burgundy dress, Serena Van der Woodsen accentuated her curves in this body-con outfit. She elevated her outfit with gold strappy heels and a slouchy clutch.
3. Rosy and romantic
Serena keeps it soft and romantic as she exits her hotel. Her white tank top is paired with a dusty rose skirt and feathered vest. Although she stands at 5’10”, she is never one to stay away from high heels. She finishes off this look with burgundy studded heels, a white stone necklace, and taupe purse with snakeskin details.
4. Budding professional
Although Blake Lively’s character was a teenager for most of the series, she hits the streets in an outfit that means business. In the perfect casual Friday look, Serena makes a statement in slim-fitting jeans, a white V-neck blouse, and a cream and red striped blazer. Her executive decision to pair her outfit with knee high boots and snakeskin back definitely gets the go ahead from us.
5. Internationally acceptable
Perfect for a Venetian date on a gondola, Serena looks brings about all the best European vibes. She sparkles in a white lace and gold glittered dress while keeping it casual with a gray blazer. Sporting bracelets as her only accessories, she spices up her look with a leopard print shoulder bag while keeping it neutral with a boat hat and oxfords.
6. Effortlessly glamorous
Serena Van der Woodsen could probably throw on a paper bag and still make it look in season, so imagine the waves she made in this gorgeous navy dress. Bravely strutting through grass in black pumps, Serena wore a pleated A-line dress with a uniquely modified sweetheart neckline and asymmetrical hemline.
7. Perfectly Parisian
We’re definitely getting some French vibes from this perfectly put-together look. While probably made to be a maxi length dress on the average lady, Serena’s long frame quickly turns this into what would be an awkward length on most. Her Parisian-inspired dress features horizontal ribbing across the body and a bold design along the skirt. Bringing attention to the slight blue hues within the skirt, she pairs the outfit with a colorful purse and sky high blue pumps.
8. All black all the time
Many of the outfits on Gossip Girl seem as if they should be found on the streets of Paris, and we’re once again taken by the simplicity of the outfit. In a dark and sultry look, Serena is seen in a long-sleeved black mini dress and doubles the wow-factor with suede over-the-knee peep toe boots and a black suede hat.
9. Rainy day blues
Casually standing along the sidewalk, Serena manages to keep the rain and the haters away with this fun outfit. The bright and dynamic print of her shorts makes us long for warmer days in the sun. Putting a unique spin on what one might normally wear with this bold print, she adds on a royal blue vest and keeps the remainder of her outfit cohesive with a nude purse and heels.
10. Running the world
Our number one Serena van der Woodsen look is one that most Gossip Girl fans will never forget. Showing off her lean legs in a pair of cropped royal blue pants, Serena accentuates her figure with a high-waist.
Her outfit wouldn’t be complete without the gorgeous gold, asymmetric jacket that she paired on top of a white blouse. As always, Serena’s outfit wouldn’t be complete without a pair of high heeled pumps. After all the saying is, “The higher the heels, the closer to heaven.”
Gossip Girl did a phenomenal job when it came to the fashion, and their cast might go down as one of the most fashionable of all time.
