Most people who love “Gossip Girl” love it for more than just the story. Most appreciate the love triangles, the drama, the scandals, and the fashion. Because the show presents the lives of girls with means, the styles are what’s hot, what’s new, and what’s showing on the runways right now.
Each of the girls has her own style – Serena and Blair each enjoy high-end clothing from designer ready-to-wear and runway couture. Blair’s style tend to run classic Upper East Side chic and Serena’s definitely got a flair for a sexier and more effortless look. So what was hot in the 4th season of “Gossip Girl?”m Nothing that I could wear, or afford, but that doesn’t mean that if you like a style you can’t put together a similar feeling ensemble yourself. Pick and choose the best looks and then scour the trendy, but inexpensive online stores, and find your own style. Or go vintage at great resale shops for designer clothing that can be tailored and remade with a little bit of skill or a great seamstress. Or take your look boho chic and grab some garb straight from the 70′s and bring it into the 00′s by adding a belt, a great pair of boots, or the hottest accessories.
Fashion shouldn’t put you in debt, but use it as a way to bring out your creative side and add your own touches. Learn a new skill or pull out a pair of scissors ala 1980′s and recreate your own piece of art. That’s what’s fabulous about fashion these days – just about anything goes as long as you wear it with confidence! And while it’s fun to copy/recreate fashion, leave the scandals to the girls – scandals in real life are rarely any fun.
