GOSSIP-WORTHY STYLE

Nobody knows fashion better than Gossip Girl. The wardrobe is hotter than the drama, and the show is constantly pushing the limits and taking risks. Giving the Sex in the City crew a run for their money when it comes to street-friendly style, the show is setting trends that could make any girl look like a star. This light, airy and figure-flattering look is as simple as throwing on sweats, but achieves a 5th Avenue allure. Best of all, the style works on almost every frame and isn’t over seasoned with out-there accoutrements. In just 6 mixable separates, Gossip Girl style can transform into your everyday chic. The breezy tunic paired with leggings and saucy knee high boots is a show stopper on its own.  Add on this season’s favorite slouchy cardigan and a sugary faux patent alligator bag and you will, undoubtedly, be the best dressed. Psst…take notes because this style’s about to stir up some gossip!

1. ROXY LILY SWEATER

2. SUGAR XANADOO BOOT

3. ZADS TIER NECKLACE

4. SWELL LEGGINGS

5. HURLEY RILEY TUNIC

6. SPLIT ALI BAG

FLAUNT IT LIKE FARRAH

Someone must be leaving the water on because we’ve been seeing a lot of Fawcett lately. As a 70’s sex symbol, famous for her feathered hair, playful style and notorious red swimsuit, Farrah Fawcett made track jackets and flared jeans sexy decades before the explosion of the velour track suit. The coming season brings a revival of her signature flares, sporty sweaters and the sexed-up one piece swimsuits. Complete with feathered hair and all; be prepared to see Fawcett’s style flooding the streets in the coming months.
