In television series like Sex and the City and Gossip Girl, the costumes are arguably as important—and revealing—as the dialogue. The Upper East Side of the 2010s wouldn't have been the same without Blair Waldorf's headbands, coloured tights and blazers. She is certainly conservative and stays loyal to Ivy League signatures such as pearl earrings and pretty handbags, but that doesn't mean her style didn't evolve—she never wore the same headband twice. If Gossip Girl were still going, there are 11 items that we are certain Blair (or should we say Dorota?) would add to her wardrobe because somehow—despite the fact that they weren't hugely on-trend at the time—they've come back around into fashion.
There are tweaks, of course. No one could pull off a fully, madly accessorised and layered look quite like everyone's favourite RBF-girl, Blair.
Carrying on from being hugely popular in 2017, double-breasted, checked blazers are still going strong. They were an essential part of Blair's uniform, although today you'd be more likely to wear yours with jeans and a tee rather than clashing prints and cute accessories.
One of Blair's most memorable Met-steps outfits is the blue striped sleeveless dress by the brand Co-Operative Designs that she wore to a coffee-and-drama debrief with Serena, and she'd certainly be into tailored rainbow stripes like the below Mary Katrantzou skirt.
Blair will never be a girl who wears black and navy, as she always plays with bright colours, so she'd most certainly approve of this season's bold suits. We think she'd have one in red, pink, yellow and baby blue.
We'd strongly advise you ignore everything else in this double whammy of a photo and just focus on Blair's shoes: her elaborate kitten heels are so 2018. Although, saying that, the queen has really been bringing back the headscarf this year too.
Blair had a huge bag collection that ran the gamut between practical school tote to the more sublime and ridiculous—like this heart handbag. It just so happens that this year is all about the novelty mini bag, so it's time to take them out of storage, Leighton.
