With news of Gossip Girl's reboot buzzing through the internet, we can't help but feel giddy about the new generation of Upper East Siders slated to take over our lives. But, while we're still anticipating for Gossip Girl's return to our screens, let's take a look back at one of the series' most iconic characters: Blair Waldorf, a.k.a. the Queen B.
Since the first season, Blair has never been afraid to walk the talk through power dressing in designer pieces while topping it off with a headband! But whether she’s going for a preppy look or a printed attire, her stylish 'fits are always accompanied with a witty remark—which is exactly why we all love her!
Here are 10 of Blair Waldorf's most stylish and iconic looks in Gossip Girl.
1. An LBD is a must.
Pilot episodes will always be memorable. When we first met Blair, she was wearing a beautiful black dress with lace stockings and her trademark headband to match.
2. You can never go wrong with a retro sailor look.
Up to this day, the nautical look has remained to be timeless and elegant. Meant to be simple, clean and natural, Blair’s retro dress perfectly exemplified sailor-chic!
3. Simple dresses just need one show-stopping detail to look chic.
We bet all of you were quite jealous of the best friend date Blair and Serena both had! But some of us were quite focused on the blue dress Blair was wearing—proving plain dresses need not to be boring. After all, it was said to be designed by her mother, Eleanor Waldorf, and it was accessorized beautifully with a red belt.
4. Blair proves the power of accessorizing.
Back on The Met steps, Blair made preppy school uniforms look fashionable with her designer handbags, headbands, and shoes.
5. Pink matches white, no doubt!
Remember that episode when Blair played princess for a day? Well, her pretty pink Oscar De La Renta ball gown and tiara definitely lived up to that theme. To this day, we're taking cue from Blair when wearing a hot pink piece: Wear it with white for a cool and chic combo.
6. Tweed is a must in your work wardrobe.
You can never go wrong with coordinate pieces, and this tweed blazer and skirt set is the Queen B’s ensemble for power dressing at work. We highly suggest you follow suit.
7. Go for head-turning accesories.
If you're pressed for time in elevating your outfit, QueenB's best advice is to level up your accessories. Case in point: Blair's power necklace here.
8. Go for a colored wedding gown.
Who said you can only wear white to a wedding? When she finally tied the knot with Chuck Bass, this blue beaded Ellie Saab dress was the star of the show.
9. All white never fails.
Blair demos that a crisp, white, monochromatic look will always look good, whether you're lounging at home or vacationing at the Hamptons.
10. Pink + red combo stands out.
Here's another Oscar dela Renta number etched to our memory: A red frock paired with a gorgeous hot pink clutch.
