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.

Touche... I feel alone as well... I hate myself... People bully me for the stupidest of reasons, and it never ends! It's the reason I came on here in the first place. To have people that I can consider friends with a straight face (I have a few of those in real life but I'm not exactly a social butterfly. Well, I hate myself even more when I have to lie about not having friends, saying I have heaps of them, when that would be 35... I'm sorry if I offended anyone, but hey, I just assume I offend everyone I talk to... which is why I don't talk much...

Ask your dad why he won't let you go. If it's cost then offer to pay for it yourself if he won't pay and you don't want your friend to pay. If you don't have enough money right now ask your dad if you can pay him back over time by doing extra chores or something. Also calmly explain that you really like the band and really would like to see them live. Is your friend's mom or dad going with you? That might affect his decision if he's worried about your safety.
