The 4 Blair Waldorf–Approved Trends That We Spotted at London Fashion Week

London Fashion Week coincided with the 10th anniversary of Gossip Girl, and as a Blair Waldorf superfan, I couldn't help but look at the catwalk trends through a Blair lens. The preppy, overly polished look might not be very 2017, however, several of her signature pieces from red tights to embellished headbands featured in the biggest shows on the schedule. So if you still wish you had a wardrobe like Blair's, scroll below to see the Gossip Girl micro trends that we spotted during London Fashion Week.

Erdem was inspired by royal style, and Blair Waldorf was the "Queen of the Upper East Side" with a stately wardrobe fit for any royal function. Remember that she did briefly become part of Monaco's royal House of Grimaldi when she married Prince Louis. Erdem's ladylike gloves, embellished colourful gowns, elaborate earrings, colourful shoes worn with tights and bows on everything looked like they'd come straight from Blair's mind.

Blair Waldorf was the "dictator of taste" of the Upper East Side, and she was especially vigilant when it came to how her group wore hosiery. Nelly Yuki famously said, "Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night shouting, 'Tights are not pants!'" Blair would have approved of Preen's red rights, and colourful ribbed knee-length socks work with pretty, printed Mary Janes.

At Erdem, everything was adorned with colourful, preppy bows that were so very Blair.

Blair would not be Blair without an embellished headband, of course, and they were at the core of Holly Fulton's own collection.
