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.

Don't go out of your way to talk about it. A lot of people are off put by people who talk about their intelligence a lot. If it comes up in a conversation, you can talk about it, but you probably won't need to tell them. Usually with people who are genuinely intelligent, they don't need to talk about their intelligence, it's obvious to everyone around you, and therefore people who are not as intelligent might feel like you're rubbing it in.

Maybe you should wait until you feel a little bit more comfy talking to them, and then tell them!  :D

There is a slight issue with that. I am rarely comfortable talking with children my own age.
