Gossip Girl Serena Isn't Afraid To Wear Plaid On Plaid..Very Brave Choice

Serena sported quite a few show-stoppers on last night's Gossip Girl episode "You've Got Yale". However gorgeous they all may be, our favorite was her simple school outfit. We'd all love to have somewhere to sport her opera-going chartreuse colored satin gown — but how many of us have regular formal galas to attend? We all, however, need a durable pair of brown boots, a classic plaid blazer, and a sleek pair of cable-knit textured hose. We'll pass on the barely-there plaid skirt since the majority of us don't strive to dress like Catholic school girls.

blue and black plaid blazer

This buffalo-plaid twill blazer ($395) is prep school cool just like Serena. We love the notched collar and casual, single-button closure.

brown buckle boots

Get the Gossip Girl look with these chunky heeled, riding boot style brown boots ($67) that can be worn with just about anything.

grey spanx textured knit panty hose

Don't stop there! This ensemble isn't complete without a pair of patterned grey tights. Pick up some cable-knit style textured hose from Spanx in charcoal ($28).
