Get Leighton Meester’s Look for Less
How to steal the Gossip Girl’s tastefully tonal style.
Leighton Meester looked blue in shades that ranged from azure to ultramarine while shooting an upcoming episode of Gossip Girl recently in NYC. Here’s how to get her on-trend tonal look – for less!
The show’s wardrobe stylist, Eric Daman, often keeps the leading ladies warm in hats from Patricia Underwood and Louise Green, both of whom sell chic toppers for around $250. Top off your look with this hat from Burberry – at $94, it’s designer and still under $100!
Leighton’s character Blair is a fan of ultra-girly designer Rebecca Taylor’s $550 coats, and this powder blue number works in perfect contrast with her bright blue hat and bag. Create your own perfect pairing with this sky-colored coat from Jane Post. At $395, it will keep you warm well through next winter.
Portolano’s cashmere-lined leather gloves have Blair’s ultra-luxe look and keep Leighton’s hands warm during shooting. At over $100, they’re a bit pricey, but we found super-cute substitutes for just $24.90 from Southcombe.
Leighton totes Foley + Corinna’s $528 Jet Setter bag in this shot. Add a pop of electric blue to your ensemble for a lot less than your electric bill with New York & Company‘s $27.96 tote.
White lacy tights help tie together the light blue of Blair’s coat and her more colorful accents. Daman and the ladies prefer Wolford’s pricier pairs, but you can score a similarly stylish pair from Forever 21 for just $5.80!
