Beyond the lore of Manhattan's fashionable society and the turbulent, satiating love sagas, Gossip Girl is a forever-favorite amongst style lovers for one central reason: the clothes. It was Blair Waldorf's wardrobe in particular that first captivated audiences in 2007, when the show debuted on the CW — and admirers still seek to channel her ultra-polished aesthetic into their own wardrobes today. With bateau dresses, cloche hats, and Chanel bags in heavy rotation, Queen B's style is totally fit for a royal — and her chicest winter outerwear pieces are no exception. For those looking to nail the socialite's wardrobe, ˆTZR's rounding up 10 winter coats that Blair Waldorf would totally wear today — with scores of styles at every price point.
As for Waldorf's go-to outerwear styles, there's tons of plaid coats, woolen trenches, and cropped cape silhouettes — all of which conjure images of Kate Middleton and Princess Diana's style files. Still, it's not surprising that Waldorf's sensibility rivals that of a royal, considering her reign over Constance Billard High and her brief brush with the Monegasque crown. "I am Grace Kelly, Grace Kelly is me," she famously said early in the series — setting the tone for her decorum and taste throughout the entire series. Waldorf's style is also notably informed by her mother, New York designer Eleanor Waldorf — which shines through with the colorful kitten heels and polka-dotted tights that Waldorf wears with each coat-cocooned look.
