‘The Seven’ Shows You How To Go ‘Gossip Girl’ On The Cheap

Serena, Chuck, and Blair lookalikes model ’Gossip Girl’ looks for less.

So, you dig some ALL of the ensembles you see on Gossip Girl (psst, it returns tonight!), but you’re not ready to drop a grand or two on a pair of leggings like the fictional Upper East Siders do? Well, you’re in luck because on today’s The Seven, hosts Julia Alexandria and Kevin Manno interview Gossip Girl’s stylist Eric Daman for deets on cribbing the style of Blair Waldorf, Serena Van Der Woodsen, and Chuck Bass…without breaking the bank.

BLAIR WALDORF: Blair tends to rock print dresses, like this polka dot bubble frock, and then accessorizes like crazy. But, her trick is to keep the main accessories—tights, bag, shoes, blazer—monochromatic (i.e. all black everything).

SERENA VAN DER WOODSEN: She may be Upper East Side born and bred, but Serena clearly infuses a dose of downtown funk into her wardrobe. To adopt her style, start with leggings or super skinny jeans and boots. Add to that a billowing top, a handful of necklaces and an oversize shopper bag (always a standout bag!).
