Tips on how to dress like Blair Waldorf

21 Jan

Hiya, its been ages since my last blog. Just return from a “fantabulous” trip to China. Bought heaps of stuff. It was an enjoyable trip!

Enough of that…

I am a big fan of Blair Waldorf’s fashion style. For those who do not know who is Blair Waldorf is one of the main character of the popular TV series: Gossip Girl. With a fashion designer for a mother, it’s no surprise that Blair has amazing fashion sense and a true signature style.

Blair’s fashion style is very classic, preppy, and polished. She always looks as if she stepped out from a department store window; her outfit is flawless, and she never has a hair out of place. Blair’s fashion sense is definitely the quintessential upper-east-side stereotype, and she’s not ashamed of it! Blair would never step outside with unwashed hair, wear an outfit that didn’t match, or buy anything “distressed” or “boho chic.”

Here are some of Blair’s signature looks, pieces you can almost always catch Ms. Waldorf wearing around the streets of Manhattan:-

Dresses & Skirts:

When I was looking for photos of Blair Waldorf, I realized that I couldn’t find a single photo of her wearing pants! Blair is all about skirts and dresses, worn with tights in the winter and bare legs in the warmer months. She’s not into denim at all, so if you want to dress like Blair, forget about jeans.

Tailored, classic pieces:

Since she attends an upscale private school, many of Blair’s outfits are school-uniform appropriate, which means she wears lots of collared shirts, simple skirts, and ties. With a structured button-up blouse and navy blue skirt, you could channel a little bit of prep school chic yourself. For extra Blair appeal, add a brightly colored headband and tights.

Pops of Colour:
No matter how subdued Blair’s outfit may be, she always incorporates a pop of color in some way. Whether it’s a bright red trench coat over a navy dress, a technicolor bag, or orange leggings under her school uniform, Blair keeps her look fresh with brights.  Her favorite colors are red (her signature colour), orange, and yellow.

Girly Details:

Blair is a total girly-girl at heart, and because of this, she loves to incorporate feminine touches like lace, bows, and ruffles, into her outfits. This is also her go-to look for formal events and parties.

Headbands:

Blair’s signature hair accessories are her hundreds of different headbands!  From tartan to satin, Blair wears her headbands in every style you can imagine. She usually wears them with her hair down, but occasionally pulls a headband over a sleek bun or ponytail.

Tights:

In the winter months, Blair’s wardrobe revolves around tons of different pairs of tights. This season, she rocked every shade of tights imaginable, from bright red, to white, gray, and the ever popular black opaque tights. Tights are on the way out because warmer weather is fast approaching, but of course you can still wear them on cold days or if the mood strikes this summer.

After watching the fashionable ladies in Gossip Girl, I started buying bright coloured clothing & tights (red, blue, beautiful patterns) instead of buying dull coloured clothes or the same boring black tights…

My next post will be on Serena Van Der Woodsen’s (Blair’s best friend) fashion style. Her style is the complete opposite of her best friend.

Tune in for my next post…안녕히 가세요 (Korean for saying Goodbye)
