XOXO, Las Bellas…Gossip Girl Style

There is always a show in time that dictates how fashion will be perceived…for many of us, the first show that came around and did that was “Sex and the City”…then when Patricia Field’s magic was no longer seen on our screens…we all had a bit of a dry spell when it came to high-end, out of the box, push the boundaries style…until “Gossip Girl” came along.
The mastermind behind this amazing fashion is Eric Daman, who through his genius mind was able to make “S” and “B” into the two fashion icons that they are today. They are completely different characters in both personality and style and we give major Kudos to Mr. Daman for creating them so uniquely.
We must say that we adore both character’s style and depending on the mood, we may be more Blair than Serena and vice versa.  Bella M will be styling Miss Blair and Bella B will do the Sexy Serena. Let’s start with Blair…
It’s no secret that the incomparable Blair Waldorf is a one of a kind…both in her scheming ways and in her style. We highly doubt that she owns any sweatpants and we wonder what her “casual” look would look like…since it’s evident to us that all her looks are upscale and pretty elegant…even when she’s just walking around feeding the ducks at Central Park. Here are some of the outfits we hold as true “Blair” style:

As you guys can tell, Blair is a woman that loves her dresses, accessories and girly touches like bows, headbands and tights…and we wouldn’t have our Blair any other way. She always dresses to perfection and exudes a certain elegance to her looks. Here are some Blair inspired options that will help you bring the Blair out in you….minus the cattiness and evil bitchiness ;)

Add a little adventure to your heel to keep the look from looking boring and stale.

Accessories are key to a Blair lover…here are some to add that perfect “Waldorf” touch to your outfits. A skinny, bow belt is the perfect finish to your Blair inspired look.

We know that B has outgrown her signature headband, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t appreciate one every so often. We think these are a great option.

B seems like she’s always up to no good…and we have a feeling that she’d use a bag like these to keep all her “sabotage” tools within reach. Dangerous Liaisons indeed!

Last but not least…wrap yourself up like a beautiful present with these classically beautiful coats:

Next, let’s talk about Miss Serena van der Woodsen. She may not be the smartest girl when it comes to choices in men but we think she’s got a real head for fashion. She knows her body and isn’t afraid to flaunt it. Working with her long legs and slim body, she almost always chooses seductive & self confident clothing. Although we do see her in a variety of clothing, the look that we feel best suits her personality is pure hotness…and hey, she’s sexy and she knows it!

We love that Serena shows off what she’s got with confidence. These dresses would definitely appeal to a Ms. Van der Woodsen:

Serena loves to play up her feminine side with a masculine touch and these blazers to just that. Pair them with dresses, jeans, skirts and shorts…Serena would approve.

Never a girl afraid of attention, these chunky and “look at me” necklaces are the perfect accessory…we can just see “S” wearing these for a shopping day or a party.

Serena’s got a lot of emotional baggage…and she happens to like big bags…so we guess these bags are just what she’d need after another talk with Dan.

Serena is bootylicious…and we’re not talking about her behind…she loves a good bootie heel. We see here rock these styles all the time on GG.

Lastly, Serena’s favorite accessory is a man…we all know this, but the accessory we love most about her is her hair. We love it down and especially back in a ponytail. Here are some items that will make that look chic and totally sexy.

So as you guys can see, these two ladies are very different, but isn’t that what makes the show so great? You can always see a little bit of your style in either Blair or Serena…and of course, you can get inspired to push your own style limits and try something new. Tell us, which character do you love the most? Are you a Serena or a Blair?
