If your soul yearns for the alternative Brooklyn/Lower East Side Rocker chick, then you are a Jenny. You can make do with anything available on hand then turn it into something smashing. Anna Sui reach into New York's punk heritage then turn girly lace into an edgy, sexy, but simple halter dress.
Funny, a "Jenny" girl can easily transition into the free-wheeling Upper East Side socialite, Serena Van der Woodsen, the Park Avenue Princess who rebels against her own neighborhood's stodginess. With black and gray dominating the "Serena" capsule, you can mix Jenny's punk rock attitude with Serena's laid-back panache.
Blake Lively, the actress playing Serena, describes her character's style as "Urban Equestrian." A mix of the Californian Bohemian Vibe with the urban toughness of New York.
You can easily rock Serena's and Jenny's warbrobe together for your own unique take on the Upper East Side look.
If the island of Manhattan is not your thing, you can mimic Brooklyn's alternative artsy queen, Vanessa. Her color palette of brown, orange, and white and her ethnic patterns suggest a more realistic representation of the greater boroughs of New York, a commingling of immigrants and first-generation Americans swirled together into a tasty blend that is a whole lot spicer than the Upper East Side's Creme de la Creme.
See, you can dress just like your favorite "Gossip Girl" from Anna Sui, the ultimate New York designer at reasonable prices in top notch fabrics and details, from the accessible Target.
