svdw Get The Look of Gossip Girls Serena van der Woodsen!

Serena van der Woodsen is Gossip Girl‘s bad girl turned – somewhat – good. Serena is beautiful and is often told that she gets by on her looks rather than striving towards her full potential. She comes from a very affluent family, dating back to her great great grandfather who formed a Dutch trading company. Her style is a lot like her personality – relaxed and carefree. In a Rolling Stone article Blake Lively described her character as being like herself, saying,

“I make Serena a little more goofy, just because that’s how I am.”

Lively brings a more Californian vibe to the role. Since Serena has originally lived in the upper east side, it is more likely that she would be more uptight, just like Blair. This change helps to differentiate the two and add more personality to Serena.

Serena’s fashion choices are also very different from her best friend. She likes tight and short skirts and dresses, instead of the flowy, mid-length skirts Blair chooses. Serena uses large bags and loves large statement necklaces. She has a wide variety of boots, usually knee length and loves a good pair of jeans.

Jeans, Shirt, Vest, Boots, Bag, Necklace

This first look shows Serena’s causal style. Her style is simple but adorable. She always looks well put together, even though she is just wearing jeans and a t-shirt. Serena loves a good boot, statement necklace and a large bag. The necklace also brings colour into the outfit.

Serena doesn’t usually add a lot of colour into her outfits. She has a deeper colour palette and loves a good neutral. The only big pop of a brighter hue is usually found in her jewelry. The shirt is in keeping with her relaxed, billowy style, while the skirt is tight and short. For a more professional look, she wears heeled boots instead of her more casual flats.

This last look is more adventurous, while still looking exactly like Serena. Instead of her usual skinny jeans, she opted for a wide leg pant. This emphasizes the length of her leg. With a wide leg, the top must be toned down and tight. The addition of a belt also helps to accentuate the waist and show her true figure. Too much volume will make even a thin girl like Serena look large. Her accessories are typical Serena, large bag and a statement necklace.
