Steal her Style: Blair Waldorf*


Is there anyone with a more iconic fashion sense than Gossip Girl's Blair Waldorf? I don't think so. Blair, with her preppy apparel and signature headband, is the undisputed style queen of the Upper East Side. I'm a big fan of her simple, elegant, and classy looks, so I've decided to show you how to put together an outfit that Blair would die for!

The Outfit:
 
 
The look that I've created is based on Blair's school style in season one of Gossip Girl. This look would be perfect to wear at work, school, for a job interview - in fact, any smart occasion!

Now, my wardrobe isn't full of Gucci and Chanel like Blair's, but I was still able to craft a Waldorf-inspired look from pieces already in my closet! Just follow these few simple guidelines to select the right items from your wardrobe.

Blair's outfit checklist:
  • Neutral colours
  • A tailored jacket 
  • Simple prints
  • Natural makeup
  • A glamorous headband.

I've created my own interpretation of Blair's classic look by pairing a navy blue, fitted, rope-trimmed jacket with a crisp white collared shirt. With these, I'm wearing a brown, knee-length, pleated skirt with a classy dogstooth print, and pastel pink kitten heels. In terms of makeup, I just applied a little concealer, eyeliner to my upper lash line, a touch of blush, and a natural lip tint. Blair's hair is impeccably neat and effortlessly wavy, so I simply tamed my flyaways with a few strokes of my Irresistible Me hair straightening brush, which you can see a full review of here.

The Details:

 

Of course, the outfit wouldn't be complete without accessories! I kept the jewellery simple and tasteful with a short silver sparkly necklace. I also donned some white lace-topped glossy stockings, another Blair staple. But the crowning glory of this look is undoubtedly the eyecatching headband. I chose to wear the gorgeous Celine Headband* from Irresistible Me's accessory range to complete my Blair Waldorf look. The chic black headband is embellished with hand embroidering, as well as pearl and lace details. This one glamorous piece brings the whole outfit together and really makes it stand out. Unlike many headbands which can be too tight and cause a headache, this one is very soft. The fabric which covers the ends of the band cushions it against your head.

So, now that I've officially embodied Blair Waldorf, how do I go about finding my Chuck Bass?
