Gossip Girl-inspired dresses you need in your summer wardrobe

Maybe you're not going to Paris or the Hamptons this summer, but dressing like Serena and Blair will make you feel like you are. Iconic outfits from everyone's fave TV drama will have you channeling your inner It girl. The Upper East Side is waiting... 

Serena and Blaire's open-back dresses

Remember the episode where Serena and Blair take dresses from Blair's mom's photo shoot and have their own snap sesh around the city? The open-back dresses are so elegant and perfect for an upscale Insta shoot with your bestie. You could match colors or just coordinate with belts or other accessories (these would pair perfectly with a small clutch and a pair of heels). For hair, go for an updo or add a headband like Serena's to finish off the look. 

Blair's white party dress

Everyone loves this iconic dress that Blair wore to the white party in season two. And thankfully, there are a ton of dupes. It's so simple yet so stylish—not to mention it's absolutely perfect for the summer. Here, Blair paired it with a white clutch, pearl bracelet and a white headband, but you could also throw your hair up into a low bun. This is the perfect dress for brunch with your girls, or you could throw your own white party and really live out your Queen B dreams. 

Serena's orange maxi dress

This orange dress is an incredible summer outfit. Serena wore it to a charity polo match in season three when she stole a horse. Orange is a fabulous summer color to have in your wardrobe. Serena's hair is everything in this, so leave your locks down and tousled for an effortless look. You only need minimal accessories because the dress really speaks for itself with this one. 

Serena's gold mini dress 

This is the dress Serena wore on her very first date with Dan. At first, they were going to a fancy dinner, but in the end, she transformed this stunning gold dress into a more casual look by adding a jacket and a scarf. This dress can be worn in so many ways for so many occasions, which makes it a *must* in your closet. You can dress it up by wearing heels and adding tons of gold accessories, or dress it down and wear a jacket and sneakers. Either way, you will look stunning.
