Blair, Serena, Jenny, and yes, even Vanessa (I spotted her in an Urban Outfitters dress I own during last week's episode) are so well-dressed it makes me ashamed that their characters are at least four years younger than me. Nevertheless, I swallow my pride and take notes from the teens every Monday night at 8pm, hoping that a little of their fabulousness will rub off.
If you are as excited as I am about this look, get these things in your closet immediately:
- brightly colored tights
- cable knit, plaid, and argyle everything
- bows & ruffles
- pleated skirts
- well-fitted blazers, cardigans & vests
- socks! ankle, knee, and thigh high all work.
- when in doubt, stick to navy blues, creams, whites, reds, yellows, and greens
- ties, ties, ties!
I've put together a look for us girls whose bodies don't exactly resemble Leighton Meester's. Grab your preppiest little black dress (the one below is from Evans):
Add some color and fun with the following items:

And voila! Now you are totally competing with Serena and Blair for the position of queen bee. Have fun ladies, but play nice.
(hey, i can pretend, right?)
