Playing With Textures Xoxo
On the set of Gossip Girl Leighton Meester is used to playing young New York socialite Blaire Waldorf. In spite of New York's frigid temperatures, she remains to stay stylish. Read on to see how you can get her look that mixes different patterns and textures!
Mixing patterns to stay warm
Leighton Meester's Gossip Girl-character Blair Waldorf's style is preppy with a trendy edge, always mixing patterns and contrasting colors. She manages to wear different textures and patterns while still creating one unified look. This is how she does it:
Pick a plaid coat: The plaid coat is the bulk of the outfit and will be your biggest investment piece. Fit one that has neutral or a pop of colors (but most of all keeps you warm).
Add tights: Leighton wears lace tights that are a monochromatic color complementary to the coat. Choose a neutral with any pattern you like!
Choose accessories: Leighton is wearing heels, but flats will also work with this look. Keep in mind that you want to create one long line, so be sure your hat and shoes continue the color theme -- then you'll look seamless from head to toe!
