Leighton Meester's Look for Under $100!

As far as fashion icons go, there are few who beat Leighton Meester in consistently putting together to-die-for fashionable outfits either to grab coffee, or go to a red carpet event.  After all, who can beat a Gossip Girl at style?  Unfortunately, Leighton Meester and Blaire Waldorf both have expensive taste...unattainably expensive taste.  Example: the Marchesa gown that Blaire Waldorf wore to Prom on Gossip Girl was one of a kind, and literally priceless.  It takes a lot of research and a little bit of luck to put together a Leighton Meester outfit without having to sell your car, but I believe that I have done it successfully.  Read on to find out how to get "the look" for less.

Leighton's Look




This is Leighton looking undeniably fab at a party for Kira Plastinina, wearing Kira Plastinina.  Her black and white look is timeless, and chic; she looks hip in menswear but also manages to look delicate and feminine.  This is definitely a fashion win for Leighton.

The Vest:



It's a little less shiny, and a lot less expensive.  This black scoop-neck New York and Company vest fits the silhouette of the Kira Plastinina vest that Leighton is wearing, without the astronomic prices that the Russian designer demands for her clothing.  It is a cute take on business casual clothing, and will add a certain hip feel to your wardrobe.  It also happens to be 50% off at newyorkandcompany.com where you will be able to find it for just $24.99.  Great deal? I think so, too.  

The Tank Top:

It is not that hard to find a white tank top for not a lot of money, but what is definitely more of a challenge is finding one that flatters your body and makes "the ladies" look nice without taking that fatal, yet so common turn to being trashy.  This Victoria's Secret bra cami top will keep you feeling sexy without going slutty, and the added length on bottom makes it perfect for layering under a shorter vest.  It's only $14.50 at victoriassecret.com, so you can look sexy without breaking budget.

The Jeans:



I did include a pair of skinny jeans, because Leighton is wearing some, but I do so with the warning label: wear with caution. We do not all have the bodies of Leighton Meester (sadly).  For those of us such as myself who will not be flattered by skinny jeans, let us choose a fit that flatter our own bodies, rather than our idols. For those who can pull off the look, however, these Dollhouse sequined skinny jeans glam up denim, and look adorable. I love the subtle sequins on the waist.  They won't make you look too hipster, but they still give off a modern, funky vibe.  Get them on sale for just $19.99 at http://shop.dollhouse.com/.  

The Shoes:


Are you too proud to buy a cute pair of shoes from Payless as long as nobody finds out where you got them? I, for one, am not.  These Christian Siriano pumps are similar to the round-toe black heels that Leighton wears, and they are so cute, I want to run out and buy them in three different colors.  They can make the transition from campus to internship effortlessly by switching the skinny jeans for a pencil skirt, and they will make your legs look fantastic.  They also happen to be just $34.99 at payless.com making them a great, and affordable fashion must-have.  

This outfit costs a total of $94.50, and the best part is that you will have four adorable articles that you can pair with other outfits to create new looks that are completely your own.  

Happy Shopping :)
