Blake Lively a.k.a. Serena van der Woodsen, and Leighton Meester a.k.a. Blair Waldorf may get most of the attention when it comes to Gossip Girl style, but Jessica Szohr a.k.a. Vanessa Abrams is just as much of a fashion plate.
Unlike Waldorf, who is more the Oscar de la Renta-type, and van der Woodsen, who opts more for tight Herve Leger numbers, Vanessa has a laid-back, casual style that is often infused with an ethnic flare.
I’m not the biggest fan of her boho looks, but I thought the outfit below – photographed while Szhor was on location in New York City – was interesting, because it incorporates a number of the reigning trends of the season – clogs, fringe, ethnic prints, and denim vests.
Thanks to a minimal amount of accessories, and a balance of prints, fabrics, and colors, Szohr made the most of an outfit that could have easily appeared forced and overly trendy.
