A Gossip Girl Reboot Is in the Works—Here Are Our Dream Costume Choices

Hey, Upper East Siders—remember Gossip Girl? The now-iconic late-noughties drama, where preppy teenagers galavanted around New York City, acting like adults and wearing designer clothes? Well, the series is set for a return this summer, as HBO Max is said to have a reboot in the works.

And while we are, of course, hoping the new series contains just as many dramatic plotlines as the original, we are equally as excited to see what the new set of Gossip Girl costumes will look like. Will there be a new Queen B who will parade around in preppy-patterned looks and signature hair accessories? Will someone fill the Serena Van Der Woodsen–shaped hole in our lives by offering a plethora of boho-chic outfit inspiration?

Between Blair Waldorf and best friend, Serena, Gossip Girl's original iteration acted as an aspirational mood board of sorts, containing an array of outfits we loved but would likely never have the chance to wear. And though the characters attended an elite private school on New York's Upper East Side, they also happened to have the most relaxed uniform policy I've ever seen, with each student allowed to liberally add their own flair and accessories alongside their school clothes.

So what will Gossip Girl character costumes look like in 2020? Our bets are on a mixture of Chanel tweed skirt suits, OTT embellished Miu Miu tops and cardigans, Dior-inspired school uniform dressing (featuring plenty of plaid) and a few preppy Prada pieces thrown in for good measure.

We may not see the return of Blake Lively or Leighton Meester, but we're pretty confident that the new generation will be just as iconic. Keep scrolling for our imagined, dream list of outfits for the new Gossip Girl reboot.
