It's hard to believe that Gossip Girl ended almost three years ago, in 2012. But let's face it: Blair Waldorf and Serena van der Woodsen are still very much a part of our lives. No, not solely in the form of Saturday rerun-binges, but with their everlasting style advice.
So in honour of one of our favourite shows (we're guessing yours, too!), take a walk down memory lane and re-live some of the best fashion quotes from the series.
Keep scrolling for seven style rules we totally still believe from Gossip Girl.
In season four, episode one, “Belles de Jour,” Blair says to Serena while in Paris, “Stop whatever you’re doing. We need to shop.”
As Blair told a fellow student in season two, episode seven, “Chuck in Real Life,” “Tights are not pants.” Truth.

In season four, episode 13, “Damien Darko,” Blair says to Dan, “Fashion is the most powerful art there is. It’s movement, design, and architecture all in one. It shows the world who we are and who we’d like to be. Just like your scarf shows the world you’d like to be a used car salesman.”
In episode three, episode 16, “The Empire Strikes Jack,” Gossip Girl says, “If you are what you wear, you better dress the part you want. A few lucky ladies can do no wrong. Their looks: perfection. And they've got accessories to match. But most girls get tired of the same old look. And they'll do anything to get the hot new piece on their arm. And then there are those with no vision of their own. Thieves of fashion who will steal the shirt off your back.”

In season three, episode 13, “The Hurt Locket,” Blair says, “You know how torturous it is for me to find shiny things that aren’t intended for me,” when talking with Chuck about his mother’s locket. It’s so true—beautiful jewellery is just too hard to pass up.

In season one, episode five, “Dare Devil,” Blair tells Jenny, “As my mother always says, “Fashion knows not of comfort. All that matters is the face you show the world.” And your face looks like it's going to bat mitzvah.”
