Leighton Meester mixes neutral textures as Blair Waldorf
By far, my favorite part of cold-weather dressing is mixing textures, and it looks as though Gossip Girl‘s costumers agree with that notion wholeheartedly. Because texture can get overwhelming if it’s mixed in bold colors, they did a wise thing and kept this outfit for Leighton Meester‘s character completely neutral.
Not only is her black-and-cream checked Bensoni Military Coat a perfectly bold winter option, but her Valentino Aphrodite Satchel is a gorgeous ladylike compliment. With all the texture going on it the outfit, though (I haven’t even mentioned her snake and patent Giuseppe Zanotti pumps yet), I might have preferred the plain leather version of the bag to this intricate iteration. Gossip Girl‘s styling is purposefully over-the-top, though, and I think that this is one of the costumers’ best efforts.
