Blair Waldorf style inspiration

Unfortunately Gossip Girls 6th and final season aired last year but it remains my favourite tv show of all time. I love the storyline, all the drama makes you forget about your own problems. Some of the characters really appeal to me but the best thing about Gossip Girl is the fashion.

Apparently the closet from Gossip Girl is estimated on a dazzling 10 million dollar ! Me jealous? While watching the show it's almost impossible to keep count of all the designer pieces the characters are wearing.

My favourite character by far is Blair Waldorf, played by the incredibly talented Leighton Meester. At the beginning of the series she seems to be a scheming bitch but as the shows evolves you get the see an unconfident and loving side from Blair Waldorf. On one side she wants to reign the school and on the other side there's not much she wouldn't do for her friends.
I would describe Blair's clothing style as classic and chic. Her outfits are always perfect thought out until the last details. Whether it's sleeping, scheming, shopping,... Blair knows how the stand out in a crowd.

If you want to look anything like queen B, keep the following things in mind.

The headband

The headband is without a doubt the favourite accessory from Blair Waldorf and also the most famous one. No outfit is perfect without the headband. She has one in probably every colour known to human kind but her favourite kind of headband is probably one with a tiebow.

The bag

Every woman needs a couple of bags the spice up her outfits. Let me tell you Blair Waldorf always has the newest it bag on her arm so it's not easy to keep up with her. But a girl can dream, right?

The cape

My loyal readers know which item is highest on my wishlist: the cape. You will find a lot of cape inspiration in street style but the real cape trendsetter is again Blair Waldorf.

The gown

This piece needs no explanation. As a real Upper Eastsider Blair Waldorf has a lot of parties on her schedule. Queen B really knows how to dress like a royal, actually for about a season she was royal because of her engagement to the crown prince from Monaco.

The hat

It happens that Blair Waldorf is not wearing a headband, though those moments are very rare. But every now and then the headband is traded in by a hat. 

Stockings and socks

Life in New York can get quite cold but a fashion princess like Blair Waldorf will never trade in her skirts and dresses for pants. Therefore stockings and socks are very handy accessories to keep her delicate frame warm. 

The schooluniform

Last but not lease: the schooluniform. The launch of Gossip Girl set a whole new trend in streetstyle dressing. All of a sudden schoolgirl uniforms started to show up everywhere. Not Britney Spears ( remember Hit me one more time) but Blair Waldorf was responsible for this trend.
