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.

Its my best friends birthday party on Friday and I still don't know what to get her. She's turning 12 and she loves: guardians of the galaxy and Shopping at Newlook. she wears jewellery quite likes hair and beauty products and enjoys watching movies, going to music concerts ( she likes Taylor Swift) and apple products. I'd rather not use gift cards because they're like the lazy option out and she's my Best friend but if you can think of a great brand for her then ok.

Talk to your parents about it. Tell them you didn't like your Christmas gift, and don't let your brother boss you around. Your parents can, your brother can't. Your parents gave you life, sorry to tell you but they can do anything they want if it's legal. But your brother can't. Let your parents know that you shouldn't have gotten in trouble for the stuff he doesn't. Tell them he makes you feel really awful and you don't like it. If they're good people they'll understand.

I would stop being friends with her. I mean she should understand that it'd be mean to do that. It's hard to help your friend get through a breakup when you're dating the same person. Plus you don't even know if she was trying to break you guys up so she could be with him.

You want to know if he likes you or not? Just ask him. It's not as bad as people say-I mean, it's a question. It looks like he does, so he probably does. It's not that big of a deal.

Talk to your friend. Tell her that this is the first guy that's ever liked you but you don't want her to get mad at you for stealing him from her. But understand she likes him too so don't get mad if she doesn't want you dating him. Nicely decide which of you should get him instead of the other. Chances are she might be thinking the same thing.
