We are used to ogling over Gossip Girl‘s gorgeous gowns and polished dresses, but Leighton Meester showed that she can rock the street chic look, too. While shooting in NYC this week, Leighton rocked cargo skinny jeans and a cropped top, looking like quite the hard-edged city girl. Check out the ingredients that make this look work so well:

You don’t have to bare your midriff like Leighton did, but do try the cropped top look – it’s going to be huge this fall. This Blue Life Cropped Tank top ($75) is a great intro to the trend – not too short or boxy, just right.

Leighton’s cargo skinny pants make this look – get it for yourself with these olive 7 For All Mankind® ‘The Skinny’ Stretch Cotton Cargo Pants ($169) – they are perfect for fall.

Leighton rocked a great summer-to-fall transitional shoe; these Twelfth St. By Cynthia Vincent Luella Zip-Up Leather Platform wedge sandals ($249.99, down from $405) go with tailored shorts and skirts for summer and skinny jeans for fall.

Leighton went for round, brown shades; replicate the look with these polished MICHAEL Michael Kors ‘Marsella’ Oversized Round sunglasses ($90).

A pale pink or cream bag goes great with the military green pants; try the bag in the popular bucket shape with this J.Crew Exhibitor pouchette ($198).
