Gossip Girl : The Guys’ Fashion :: Update

It’s 2009 and the fashions and styles of Gossip Girl’s leading gentlemen are still the talk of the town. Each male character on the show has his own unique style, be it laid-back, classy or quirky. Now Kidzworld helps you learn how to get the look of the guys from Gossip Girl!


Nate Archibald

More dreamy than McDreamy, Nate Archibald has a lot going for him, from enviable eyebrows to porcelain veneers to pouty lips. His modern preppy style has Nate sporting such fashions as a classic-fitting pima cotton placket long-sleeved pullover in navy from Ralph Lauren. You can get Nate’s look (or dress your boyfriend up Nate-style) with V-neck sweaters or vests over vibrant button-down dress shirts, any light-weight sweater (especially one from Ralph Lauren), pullovers, cricket-cable sweaters, etc.


Of course, no sweater-look is complete without the right pair of pants (trust us – no pants and you’ll get noticed for all the WRONG reasons). Try Nate’s button-fly premium chinos from J. Crew in British khaki. In the denim department, Nate works both high-end and mid-range levels, including Slim Jim jeans from Nudie (HUGE with guys right now) or standard-fit jeans from Gap with slight whiskering and washed-out knees for a vintage look.

The preppy handbook also requires sports coats, which Nate wears almost 50% of the time. A slim-fit, single-button, notched-lapel jacket in navy or black from Hugo Boss works for all occasions, especially when you add a pair of Harding Panel lace-ups from Johnston & Murphy.


Dan Humphrey

Compared to the rest of the prep school characters on Gossip Girl, poor Dan is, well, poor. Still, his style is solid, making good use of the basics. Earth tones are big for Dan, who may as well be called the king of khaki. He loves khaki pants and chinos, whether a pair of flat-fronts from Perry Ellis or rugged chinos with a fuller leg from Banana Republic. Both work great with brown suede shoes and a casual leather belt.


For fancier occasions, Dan sports button-down striped shirts from Marc Jacobs – both tucked and untucked. But when things go casual again, you can see this middle class hunk in American Apparel tees topping a pair of his trusty chinos.

Jeans are essential for this teen, and Dan tends to go for Levi’s 501 Originals and AG Jeans Protégé straight-leg jeans. But one of his fave pieces is his signature Boss Black Copper-D over-dyed jacket in deep tan with a mandarin collar, shoulder apaulets, four flap pockets and a full-button front for a slightly military vibe.


Chuck Bass

Bad and cocky Chuck Bass has some luxurious fashion preferences – so much so that his look almost feels vintage. He rocks his signature scarf with sexy style and confidence – which is probably the most important element in making any look work for you.


Besides the scarf, we’ve seen Chuck rock sensuous striped silk jammies on the show, a sorta-emo newboy cap, nerdy-on-anyone-else bowties, pink sweaters, paisley velvet pants, turtlenecks, some pretty rockin socks (green-and-white anyone?) and the infamous orange trench coat. His suits are fitted (and come in a rainbow of colors), and while we’re not quite sure where you can get any of Chuck’s signature pieces, you may want to try your local vintage clothing store to put together a look similar to his.

Okay, I've NEVER posted anything about my friends before, so bear with me. I've known that me and my BFF have the same crush since we met in 5th grade. But it always seems that my BFF is closer to him than I'll ever be. They went to 2 school dances together while I'm still in the friend zone with my crush. I pretend to not care but I really do care. I've never been in this situation before and don't know what to do about it. Should I tell my BFF how I feel or wait this whole thing out? Or even forget my crush being my crush and find a new crush? HELP!!!!!   :love :confused

Maybe that's the only line that needs to be said? You don't have to write down a whole paragraph explaining about how you feel. Sometimes, one word or one sentence can be enough. :p but I don't know. Maybe I have no clue what I'm talking about. :p

You'll have to remember, your parents love you, with that being said. If you feel like you can talk to them and they're reasonable, go ahead. But if you feel like waiting it's up to you. I think your family will support you, because they do love you. Maybe they'll be upset at first, but they'll come around, everyone does eventually. Is there anyone in your family that knows, like a cousin? Maybe you can ask for their opinion if you should tell your parents, and family. However, it's up to you. and remember, your parents care and love you.

You doesnt have to come out to your family until your ready and until they is ready too.  If you blurt it out it could be the shock.  You says that you think your Mums side of the family will be more supportive.  Has you got an Aunty or Uncle what you could discuss this with?  An adult member of your family what is most likely supportive  could probably give the best advises on how to tell your family and when and how and prepares you for how they will react. Good luck mate and takes your time :angel

I think my mothers side of the family would be fine with it. It's my dad's side I'm most concerned about. My dad says some dreadfully terrible remarks about homosexual people. I think I'm not gunna tell him at all. Ever...  Either way. Thanks for the advice!
