Get the Look: Gossip Girl's Serena Van der Woodsen

Jan 18, 2010

Serena’s Style

Serena Van der Woodsen is the beautiful socialite, and Blair’s best friend, on Gossip Girl. Her long blonde hair and stunningly good looks make her stand out in any crowd. She has an earthy look to her and often wears muted colors that go well with her skin tone and light hair color. However, she also likes to be a star, and can be seen around town wearing bright bursts of color. Her boho-chic style screams hippie with a touch of Upper East Side. Although a hint of wild bohemian graces every outfit she wears, her looks are always pulled together with fitted garments and the right accessories.


Get the Look

When she’s not wearing her school-girl uniform or a ball gown, Serena’s item of choice is the blue jean. She wears them tight and dark, and dresses them up or down depending on the occasion. HCo. Jeggings, $49.50, Hollister.

Brave the cold Serena-style with a pair of leather knee-high boots. Whether it’s raining or snowing, Serena is ready to head outdoors in style with boots that can fit over tight jeans or leggings. Strate Tall Boots, $60, Chinese Laundry.

To give off a more serious vibe, Serena dons a classic boyfriend blazer. Pair it with a tight tank for a more casual look or dress it up with a ruffled blouse. Either way, make sure the jacket is fitted and cuffed. Boyfriend Blazer, $49.99, American Eagle; Talula Blazer, $120, Aritzia.

For days when you want to feel extra pretty, channel Serena’s diva vibe with a pair of heels. Go for a thicker, boot-style heel for school and switch to a strappier heel when it’s time to dance. $49.95, H and M.

Serena ties any outfit together with an elegant but fun silk headscarf (her version of Blair’s classic headband). If silk is too pricey, you can try a cotton scarf instead! Go for bright colors in the summer and more muted ones in the winter. Gauzy Striped Scarf, $19.50, American Eagle.

talk to the person you're closest too. yes, you said you don't get close with people, but there's probably one person who you speak to more often than others- talk to that person.

Probably sound a little stereotypical, but the majority of boys don't really act like that... Ask him :p

First: WHATEVER YOU DO, DON'T KILL YOUSELF! When you get past this you'll be glad. Well, this is just my opinion, but I think you should first find someone, anyone, even if you don't trust them, if there're your parents talk to them about it. I bet a bunch of people have already told you this but there're right. Before you walk up to them, write down what you're going to say and then think of a few questions they might ask and write down the answers to them. Remember to tell them that it might take you a minute to think of an answer. Before you answer, think of the exact words you will say  before you say anything, and think in your mind about it. Think about wether it is a lie or not before you say it. If it gets out of you mouth before you realize it is a lie, don't be afraid to say so and just say the truth. Also, just try to find something you like to do that will take your mind off everything. If you really can't think of anything, try just practicing saying your feelings to yourself, or a pillow or something.  Hope this helps!
