Gossip Girl has been done with since 2012, but people still idolize Blair Waldorf and Serena van der Woodsen for their on-point wardrobes. How can you not? Their looks were always sophisticated, modern, and chic. (Okay, the bows were a bit much. But lets look past that…)
Fast-forward two years and us twenty-somethings are still wishing for a wardrobe that would rival theirs. Unfortunately, most of us can’t afford head-to-toe designer — but we have some great news! Sears just redesigned their Metaphor line and it’s fantastic. It’s perfect for the girl who wants to add some Upper East Side sophistication into her wardrobe.
In the big city, you want a wardrobe that can take you from weekday to weekend, and everything in-between. With Metaphor, you’re able to look professional and sophisticated during a long day at the office, and ultra stylish at night by doing very little. Add a faux-leather jacket to your sheath dress, or add some fun accessories to your otherwise simple look before heading out at 5pm.
If your job allows it, be ultra trendy all day. Wear a statement top with an elegant pair of dress pants or wear red. Red is definitely the new black!
Our model Madison (below) works in the fashion industry here in New York City and even though she resides in Brooklyn, she loves adding some Upper East Side flair to all her outfits.
To take her outfit from day to night, she decided to add a faux-fur vest. It’s always convenient to wear an outfit that is suitable for the office, yet stylish enough for a fun evening with the girls.
Faux-Fur Vest: $47.00
If you want to emulate Blair and Serena as well, consider adding a few items from the redesigned Metaphor collection from Sears. Don’t need any more clothes? They have shoes, accessories, and handbags as well!
