When Gossip Girl first landed on my TV in the 2000s, I watched the show as much for the permanent drama and twists in the storyline among the Upper East Siders as I did for the fashion moments. If you were a fan of the show like I was, you will be quick to recall the iconic looks of the inimitable Blair Waldorf.
Right now, it seems like just the right moment for many of Blair Waldorf’s closet staples to start bubbling back up—but with tweaks that all feel very of the moment. Yes, all of Queen B’s super-preppy wardrobe essentials are back, but now fashion girls are wearing them in completely new ways that make them worthy of the 2019 fashion scene.
Ahead, shop the five pieces you’d be sure to see her wearing on the steps of the Met—and see how the fashion set is inspiring us to style them for ourselves.
Bustier and corset shapes made a grand entrance seasons ago but continue to prove they're here to stay. Blair Waldorf was a fan of the silhouette on Gossip Girl and would no doubt have her closet stocked with 2019 versions.
