Auburn Umbrella: Gossip Girl Inspired Fashion

It has captivated us for ages now and this Auburn will help you pick out GG inspired outfits that do not get restricted to your Pinterest likes.

Along the steps of  University of Delhi, a revolution is heard. Will S win the battle with her bohemian-chic outfits or will B and her minions’ crush the efforts with affluent seasonal picks? It is a battle worth finding out.

Gossip Girl has been a guilty pleasure for its engaging dramatic content and its glamourisation of the affluent. What made this series ever more charming has to be the amazing fashion choices pulled out by all the characters, yes even Rufus!

Find out how you can create your own Gossip Girl inspired outfits at a budget:

1.“Tights are not pants”

Thanks to B.Waldorf’s bold choices, it is acceptable now that dressing up in rouge isn’t half as bad!

Queen B also made us fall in love with yellows, ensuring that it can also be styled and worn in a million confident ways possible!

Definitely a bold choice, but try out any patterned tights with solids, or a cross-pattern work to enhance your outfit’s appeal. Pair it up with an eclectic bag which you can find at any thrifty store or a flea market, to add some desi flair to your outfit!

2.Easy and breezy like S

Serena Van der Woodsen’s style has been bohemian, and yes she doesn’t shy away from trying on the coolest outfits ever. Through the seasons you may have witnessed her outfits comprising of flowy summer dresses and oversized sweaters and chunky jewelry, making the appeal for the boho-chic ever brighter! Do not restrict the summers for a more casual and flowy look. Invest in oversized sweaters and cardigans and pair them up with dresses and tights, or the usual skinny jeans and thigh high boots for the perfect laid back look!  Add bright summery skater skirts or palazzos with a solid tank top and uber cool flats to complete your summer look!

3. Little J Day

Jenny’s style was more towards gothic and comprised of more tight-fitting clothes and heavy smokey eyes, the appeal is pleasing nonetheless.

Here is how you can create a Little J look which would be a perfect outfit choice for a night out or for a concert. Fishnet stockings and high-waisted jeans with boots, followed by an eclectic accessory collection does wonders. Definitely load up on the smokey eye and pair it with the grey’s or the blacks. Grunge redefined!

4.Suit up like Chuck Bass

The raspy voice wasn’t the only thing which added more to Chuck Bass’s appeal. This UES boy featured one of the best menswear in the entirety of the show. Be it checked blazers or pink suits, nothing could beat the Chuck Bass appeal.

While his style will definitely not come off as casual, to suit up like Bass, invest in a proper formal wear outfit. If a blazer seems too much, stick to suspenders to give it a cool vintage vibe, but also look extremely presentable at the same time.

5. Dazzle unlike Lonely Boy

It seems that the only person who dresses up like an actual teenager/youth in the entire series is Dan Humphrey, hence being a big source of outfit motivation. A typical Dan Humphrey outfit would entail flannel shirts and denims. For a smart casual look, a solid tee with a blazer and jeans and an impressive pair of oxfords will complete the look!

6.Mama Lily sans her weddings

Lily Bass/Humphrey/Rhodes defines elegance and charm. With her sleek buns and enviable jewelry collection, she leaves all of us dazed and that too with her added calmness, even in the crumbling world around her.

The sleek and elegant look can be attained by pairing your outfits with a befitting bun up-do. A sleek low bun with a middle part and simple studs and a nude lip tone will make your look sparkle and scream sophistication. Here’s to all of the department fests coming up where you want something edgy or different!

 7. Brooklyn it up like Vanessa

She is bold and definitely proves that style shouldn’t be synonymous with money. Vanessa appeals to a more bohemian and carefree look, but being an assertive and independent woman at the same time. This marks as the ideal daily wear for college, now that summers are approaching.

Include Aztec print shorts or skirts alongside tank tops and chunky jewelry to glam it up like V! Throw in a bohemian or eclectic handbag to give a complete carefree vibe. What is better is that this entire look can be created by visiting your favourite flea markets and won’t pinch a bit! So what is the wait for?

It was the Blair Waldorf fever which made us all aware that headbands are an essential in our wardrobes and not something restricted to just little girls! Ranging from bandanas to scarves and headbands, there are so many of them to choose from. They are extremely versatile and go with both- the Indian and the western outfits!

Definitely invest in headbands and wear it like a crown so you step out and seize the day!
