Cecily Von Ziegesar, possibly had no clue how impactful the characters Blair and Serena would be when she had written down the novel! Once Gossip Girl had aired, it took the world by a storm and there was no looking back. Blair Waldorf, a strong-willed character with a heart of gold, only if you bother to dig a little deeper, is someone who knows how to love and was also in love with fashion.
Blair had meat to her character, and her fashion was heavily influenced by timeless pieces that were, borderline, dependent on the styles of Chanel classics and the Oscar De La Renta flair and there is no one to have adorned such timeless pieces than Leighton Meester portraying the character of Queen B, Blair.
Let’s look at some of the timeless classics that will still be relevant today or tomorrow!
The Classic Black and White
The Hound’s tooth shirt with a buttoned pencil skirt might be something that Blair Waldorf would prefer to meet Chuck Bass in his Empire Hotel! This can be a very classic style for you to wear for an important work call. Not only is the style chic but there is a certain sense of absolute royalty in this piece. To mix it up a little, you can try straight pants with the shirt and add a colored headpiece to make the color pop and Blair would most certainly approve of the same.
In fact, you can always reverse the pattern for a fun take on the look and can wear the hound’s tooth as a pant or a skirt and wear a solid color as the shirt, but make sure to keep your chin up and spines straight, because you are nothing less than a royalty.
Blair Waldorf in Bandage Moment
A bandage dress in a nautical theme is something that cannot be overlooked and is a statement for pure class. The Black and White bandage dress with a white cardigan and pearl necklace with nautical themed charms is something perfect as an evening outfit. You can always remove Blair Waldorf’s charm necklace and add a choker to make the dress seem more formal and remove the red lipstick with something in the nude shade to tone it down. At the same time, any jewelry with an emerald theme will be perfect to elevate the style.
The Power of Print on Print on Blair Waldorf
Blair Waldorf brought on the fun with her print-on-print style in her classic wardrobe. She has been seen wearing floral prints and mixing them in her own way which portrays the whim in her character. So, even when she is trying to get rid of Georgina or when she is strutting down the streets of Manhattan, print on print has always been by Blair’s side and so can it be for you. You too can bring print on print to your everyday fashion and there will be nothing jarring if you do it right. If this seems like a lot for you to handle, the green with the orange, you can always try to add prints in a monochrome color slate and it will still be just as beautiful.
The Prince Louis Charming Polka
There is a reason why Prince Louis fell head over heels over Blair Waldorf when he first saw her! It is completely because of how ethereal she was looking while wearing the black and white polka dot dress. She had added color with the bag she was carrying and that built character for the outfit. Now, if the neck of your polka dot dress is less ornate than that of Blair’s you can always add some kind of necklace or a simple band across your neck to add to the classic attire. You can swap the necklace with big colored rocks as earrings and it will still be just as perfect.
Blair Waldorf was not as experimental with her fashion as much as Serena! But that does not mean that you cannot wear something gorgeous and look just as phenomenal as Blair by making small tweaks to the things she had already worn.
You can always be the Queen of wherever you are and Queen B will be proud of you no matter what!
