Gossip Girl Style, Part 1 of 4: Serena van der Woodsen

Tonight is Gossip Girl night on The CW and we are huge fans of "the scandalous lives of Manhattan's elite".  Therefore, for the next few Mondays, you can look forward to our Gossip Girl character inspirations featuring 4 of the most prominent ladies of Manhattan (and Brooklyn!).  To start off our GG series, we've gone with everyone's favorite reformed party girl, Serena van der Woodsen.

Serena, unlike Blair, is more of a free spirit and her wardrobe reflects that.  She has a nice mix of classy pieces, flirty girly outfits, casual bohemian style, and rocker-chick apparel and accessories, and she combines them for a look that is unique and carefree, and always super sexy. Here are a few items we think would suit our socialite perfectly:

If you want to channel you inner Serena try on this halter dress from Free People. Like Serena, it's sexy and intriguing with just a touch of bohemian. All you need is a pair of heeled booties and tousled hair, and Nate Archibald is all yours.

 Boots are a staple of the Serena van der Woodsen wardrobe and she has many different colors and styles.  This boot by Steve Madden is definitely one we can picture S strutting in -- it's casual enough for some skinny jeans, but if you want to be like S you'll wear these with a way-too-short-to-not-be-wearing-leggings dress.

You'll also need to make sure your style is a perfect balance of boho-chic meets rocker chick.  Serena often expresses her edgy side in her choice of jewelry and we think this necklace from Express is the best of both worlds with its bohemian layered look and the rocker studs!

Who can pull off a vest better than Serena?  S loves layers, and this studded vest is definitely something she would throw over a loose tank or a tight mini dress, to give it some extra flair. Added bonus: it's from Forever 21, so you can be stylish without breaking the bank.

A chic summer outfit that shows lots of skin? This sexy romper is definitely a staple for our party girl Serena. Available at Urban Outfitters, you can just picture Serena strutting down the streets in sky high heels, with gold bangles, and of course, her signature blonde hair.

Or for a formal occasion, like an Ambassador's dinner or wedding, you might want to try this floor length tiered black dress by Calvin Klein.  Typically S opts for dresses that just barely cover her, but we went with this dress because we think it is very elegant, simple, and effortlessly sexy, just like Serena.
