On September 19, 2007 Gossip Girl landed on the CW. This glamorous, scandalous, pre-recession megahit was the fashion-fueled impetus for this site, and it delivered on all fronts. Well, for the first few seasons, anyway. Then the storylines went cray, as they are wont to do on primetime soaps. The clothes never disappointed, though, and ten years later, we’re still inspired by S and B’s wardrobes.

Let’s take a look at everything Serena ever wore. This’ll just take a minute. (Click here for Blair.)

 

“Pilot” 01×01

This traveling outfit, which is the most Serena will ever be covered up, ever again. At least three of this site’s recappers instantly became addicted to Breton stripe tops.

This metallic coat, with Constance uniform.

This fresh and pretty ensemble (ok, so she’s still covered up).

This preggo shirt.

This sequined action for her first date with Lonely Boy, who — SPOILER — is Gossip Girl.

Hope we didn’t ruin the series for you. #StillNotOverIt

 

“The Wild Brunch” 01×02

This tissue weight sweater and cardi combo, perfect for visiting your brother in a mental institution.

This city skyline print, for kowtowing to Queen B.

This dress that’s one part granny, one part glam.

 

“Poison Ivy” 01×03

These O-T-K boots which — and I’m being vulnerable here — I totally looked up online and purchased. Moral of the story: they did not give me Blake Lively’s legs, but were still hella fun to stomp around in.

This casz dress, for an uptight Ivy reception.

…worn with this scarf-as-headband, which…LOVE!

This Carly Simon hat and poncho dealio.

 

“Bad News Blair” 01×04

This lace number, strongly reminiscent of Blair’s very first GG outfit.

These faded jeans and vest with (Blake’s real life) dog…

…with an uncomfortable-looking purse

…and spats.

This city skyline dress. Clearly a motif they were going for as some sort of campaign to make Serena the new Carrie Bradshaw. New York is the fifth Gossip Girl!

This dress from her Eleanor Waldorf photo shoot.

Oh wait, it was a top and a skirt. And here it is with a cardi and jeans.

This red dress, which paired with Blair’s blue version.

 

“Dare Devil” 01×05

This cool leather jacket and messy tie

This striped shirt with… skinny… scarf… necklace… rope… thingie? which she was going to wear on a date with Dan…

…but then she changed into this.

Humphrey didn’t deserve the upgrade, S.

 

“The Handmaiden’s Tale” 01×06

This pink nightgown…

…followed by this pink nightgown

…followed by this coral robe.

Finally, she got dressed and donned this filigree mask of perfection…

…which she paired with a yellow dress, sequined belt, and fur shrug.

 

“Victor/Victrola” 01×07

This grey sweater with her micro uniform skirt. Serena is open for business, Dan!

…I mean, really.

No, seriously. She was on a power trip, and she had a sequined dress to fuel it (Note: What headbands were to Blair, sequins were to Serena.)

 

“Seventeen Candles” 01×08

This argyle sweater, which may have belonged to Dan.

This tunic dress, which looked like it would be hellishly uncomfortable once you sat down.

 

“Blair Waldorf Must Pie!” 01×09

This silk negligee paired with an ostentatious leopard print coat. Perfect for a flashback of Thanksgiving bar-hopping

This horribly unflattering shirt, paired with a gold lame bomber and a rope made of hair.

This swingy purple dress for Thanksgiving at the Humphreys.

And in another flashback, one of Harold’s dress shirts, with a tie as a belt. Because apparently Blair didn’t own a single piece of clothing that Serena could have borrowed for Thanksgiving dinner.

 

“Hi, Society” 01×10

Ooh! One of our favorite episodes! Remember the debutante ball? Remember The Pierces singing “Three Wishes”? Remember Cece giving Dan Humphrey the dressing-down he so richly deserved?

S kicked things off with yet another sexed-up version of the C-B uniform.

We only got a peek at Serena’s debutante reception dress.

Which was followed by one of her most iconic dresses for the actual ball, accessorized with a wrapped ponytail that mere mortals can never recreate.

 

“Roman Holiday” 01×11

Another favorite episode! This was when GG was, like, the best show ever. We opened with the Constance-St. Jude’s Christmas bazaar, where Serena was hanging casz with a blazer, tie, and polo.

Fun fact: This back view of Serena’s hair is YKYLF’s most pinned image, ever.

Later, she wore this figure-hugging stripped sweater dress. Sexy candy cane chic.

Then there’s this sequined tank dress which she wore for Eleanor Waldorf’s Christmas Eve party…followed by a private party she threw for Dan.

“Hey babe, your Christmas present is…me!” That’s so Serena.

Christmas morning, Serena made the walk of shame and changed into this robe and negligee. Yes, this is exactly what you wear to open presents with your mom, brother, and mom’s boyfriend.

LOL, remember when Bart gave Eric a Marlin’s jersey? And when Eric gamely kept these frosted tips to match the rest of his blond fam?

 

“School Lies” 01×12

Illicit party in the school pool! Gaggggging over this backless throwback suit.

This 70s inspired jacket with sheepskin collar.

This soft white waistcoat over a long sleeved navy tee, loose tie, charm necklace, and THE POUT.

This lovely wool coat, possibly borrowed from Lily.

JEANS! DRINK!

This fabulous studded dress, with gold manicure to match.

And this puff-sleeve wool coat, which I didn’t even realize was a thing that wool coats could do.

Also possibly borrowed from Lily?

 

“A Thin Line Between Chuck and Nate” 01×13

A skirt this short should be at least a misdemeanor, but the tights and boots moved it in a more respectable direction. Snaps for the shades of Michael Jackson red leather jacket.

Same pleated plaid mini, same black tights, this time paired with brown suede boots and a brown satchel.

Another school day, another loose interpretation of the uniform.

There was this gold brocade coat with an odd sweater-babydoll combo that looked strangely like nightwear worn as a tunic.

This fabulous cobalt military-styled coat.

This simple grey coat with a ruffles-for-days dusty purple blouse.

 

“The Blair Bitch Project” 01×14

This robe with stripes and sparkles and a snakeskin-y type pattern.

This habitual tie over long sleeved white tee situation. Please buy a real shirt.

This oddly-fitting dress, salvaged by an awesome gold cuff.

Another leather jacket over another tie and long sleeved white tee, finished with a plaid skirt. At least her hair looked good?

This ivory t-shirt, with a cute pale gold jacket (better, but still leather), with a red and gold snake necklace for a pop o’ color.

 

“Desperately Seeking Serena” 01×15

This ostentatious costume jewelry. I think there’s a t-shirt and jeans (JEANS!) underneath.

Leather coat/plaid skirt/loose tie.

Oh! And a fabulous hobo bag and gloves which appeared to be made from orange spandex.

But why study when your former frenemy is in town? Time for leather pants and a fake Russian accent!

The next morning called for an angelic version of S’s uniform.

She brought back the wondrous studded leather satchel, and paired it with a soft gray jacket, white blouse and a few silver and green layered necklaces.

Fed up with Georgina’s antics and ready to confront her once and for all, Serena decided it was time for the Sequins of Power.

 

“All About My Brother” 01×16

This rocker leather jacket, with military cardigan, and boho fringed bag. PICK A LOOK, SERENA.

This blah gold sack, with a Pez dispenser hanging near her navel…

…which was worn underneath this disco ball of a coat.

 

“Woman on the Verge” 01×17

This was the first episode where we witness a Certified Serena Van der Woodsen Meltdown. Tangled ratty hair?  Smeared makeup?  Slip showing beneath her dress?  Unable to stand and/or function? Check, check, check, etc.

She eventually sliped into B’s signature velvet robe. It should probably have its own guest mention in the credits.

She managed to clean up for her mother’s wedding rehearsal dinner. Hello, ladies!

 

“Much ‘I Do’ About Nothing” 01×18

This bridesmaids dress, which needs to be sent to the lowest circle of fashion hell.

 

“Summer, Kind of Wonderful” 02×01

This silky swim cover, which would probably be more at home in the bedroom than the pool house.

This giraffe print periwinkle dress she wore for a date with a lifeguard.

This green and white micro-short number which resembles a tennis dress, tbh. Plus an an electric blue Chanel bag, ICYMI.

This Grecian goddess inspired dream, for a random white party.

That hair, tho.

 

“Never Been Marcused” 02×02

These Daisy Dukes for our very own Daisy Buchanan.

This bizarre zipped parachute top with white, creased, bootcut jeans.

This marvelous maxi, accessorized with a braid, long necklace, and boobs.

This uncomplicated and alluring nightie. Can’t tell if that’s beading, or if a toddler took a Sharpie to it.

 

“The Dark Night” 02×03

These simple jeans and chic tank.

This pale citron tank with a pseudo-necklace neckline.

With awesome beige bag, silver cuff, and metallic mani.

This patterned dress, which maked me think of chicken wire. Plus, big-ass Chanel belt.

This dress is the opposite of a Monet — it’s perfectly fine in the details, but a big mess from far away. Does that make it a Seurat?

 

“The Ex Files” 02×04

This t-shirt, vest, necktie (really, by now it’s just a token tie), and many necklaces.

And…a headband?

This oddly un-accesorized gym uniform. Nary a charm necklace in sight!

This Herve Leger bandage dress, the first of many.

This pink chanel scarf with textured bag, short sleeved cardi, and her usual uniform formula.

 

“The Serena Also Rises” 02×05

This ass-baring uniform skirt with tan vest. Do we need to keep reposting these?

Oh, but the Union Jack back is kind of cool.

Pocahontas Lewk #1

Pocahontas Lewk #2

This green dress for her stomp down Eleanor Waldorf’s catwalk.

 

“New Haven Can Wait” 02×06

Dream!Serena as My Fair Lady, post makeover.

This fantastic bag with a blazer, slim cut jeans, knee-high boots, and a cleave-baring tee.

Sure, Serena. This is what you wear to college visitation day. Shut up the next time you whine that no one takes you seriously.

This positively conservative (for Serena) brown, black, and white dress.

This unflattering white sweater dress with a light pattern of runs, accessorized with perfect hair.

 

“Chuck in Real Life” 02×07

This blue steel sequinned cardigan.

This midnight blue silk negligee for lounging about at home.

This tangerine dress, worn solely to shock Bart Bass.

This uber-patterned dress, possibly borrowed from Vanessa.

This suit that Bart bought in France. He probably meant for a shirt to be worn with it.

 

“Pret-a-Poor-J” 02×08

These rust-colored thigh high stockings with grey Mary Janes.

This maroon sweater with a deep and spangled V-neck and omnipresent skinny jeans.

This lampshade.

This moto jacket, and these breasts.

 

“There Might Be Blood” 02×09

This grey romper thing.

This lovely wrap, which I wish she’d kept on the entire episode.

This bewb-baring dark blue gown.

This scrap of silk, worn to bed and to greet a morning visitor (Aaron Rose — ‘memba him?)

 

“Bonfire of the Vanity” 02×10

This gorgeous white coat with sequined lapels.

This very cute woolen jacket with epaulets and multiple zippers.

This grey dress with multicolored sequins along the neckline and arms.

This pretty-but-nothing-special lilac long sleeved tee, striped cardigan, and skinny jeans.

This skin tight oyster and black satin dress.

This cream illusion dress with a panel of – yes, you’ve guessed it – sequins.

This coat (from the pilot!) and a white negligee, for a romp in Central Park.

 

“The Magnificent Archibalds” 02×11

This Generic Serena School Uniform

This Man Eater LBD.

These two shiny satin pieces of fabric she wraps around her body like a blouse and skirt. For Thanksgiving dinner.

And these skinny braids, wrapped in a bow. Don’t pin this.

This gorgeous tweed coat, over the aforementioned pieces of satin.

 

“It’s a Wonderful Lie” 02×12

This surprisingly understated sequinned cardigan with lucite bangle.

These fab boots with matching leather bag.

Closeup of the jacket and her diamond cleave.

This top in a pretty color, which seems bunched around the armpits and shoulders.

This dress which could have be so pretty, but instead sagged around S’s assets…not to mention the pretty fairy princess skirt decided halfway round to become a mini macaron-flasher and ruins a gorgeous ballgown.

 

“O Brother, Where Bart Thou?” 02×13

This black wool military jacket paired with gray scarf and colorblocked gloves. And Chanel. Nbd.

This flawless khaki trench.

This cream dress with delicate accent beads on the hem and around her neck.

 

“In the Realm of the Basses” 02×14

This blurry dress, worn while doing the tango in Buenos Aires.

This equestrian-adjacent school uniform. Giddyup, Dan. Serena’s ready to ride again!

This rockabilly jacket with woollen accents.

This dress with an odd neckline and an easy-access zipper, punctuated with a rock candy necklace.

This sequined sweater dress.

 

“You’ve Got Yale” 02×16

“The Age of Dissonance” 02×18

This swan princess gown for St J’s/C-B’s production of Age of Innocence.

This badly fitting black cami topped with a badly fitting grey cardigan, whose buttons match the silver Christmas ribbon she’s slung around her neck for no apparent reason.

This basic black getup.

This basic blue dress with a leather jacket (so sharply cut that it’s more eveningwear than casual) and a statement Chanel purse.

 

“The Grandfather” 02×19

This gorge gold sequinned tank with tan tuxedo jacket.

This beautiful royal blue gown. If the neckline were a few inches higher, it would be almost demure. Bonus points for another appearance of combed hair!

This plaid coat, beneath which was another lovely pairing of beige vest and beige and grey striped top.

This yellow blouse, with sleeves tied up like bizarre kiddie balloons.

This sack with a plunging V.

This lemon yellow coat.

 

“Seder Anything” 02×21

These skinny jeans and cute tunic with a cropped leather jacket.

These sequins, like armor, for when she needed to lawyer up and get a divorce (right, remember that time when Serena was married?)

This awesome blue trench, which was by far the best part of this outfit.

 

“Southern Gentlemen Prefer Blondes” 02×22

“Valley Girls” 02×24

This meh black (brown?) coat.

This sparkly nude prom dress.

 

“The Goodbye Gossip Girl” 02×25

This dress. Pretty color, fug neckline.

Here’s the back. I guess this is what Page Six girls wear to ceremonial occasions.

She did not wear a mortarboard, because she’s a special snowflake.

I don’t think they ever showed a long shot of this outfit. I’m sure it was fine.

This sweater tank with a Big Bag and blue jacket. (Leather? Coated denim? Can’t tell.)

 

“Reversals of Fortune” 03×01

…with the addition of a suede, wool-lined cape and a huge bag.

This dress, with a sleeve/cape thing that is longer than the actual dress.

This outfit, which is weather-appropriate.

And this outfit, in which the only skin you can see is her face. Her clavicle probably had a panic attack.

 

“Last Tango Then Paris” 03×22

This oddly proportioned…dress? Romper?…with vest and yet another torso-sized bag.

THIS DRESS worn to Fashion’s Night Out.

Remember Fashion’s Night Out? It was a bunch of super gimmicky in-store parties meant to raise profits. The booze flowed freely. Fun, but not terribly profitable. FNO GTFO just a few years later.

Worthy of note: People did not actually dress like this for FNO.

Followed up with this molded-cup nightie. Comfortable or no? Can’t decide.
