    26 Of The Most Memorable "Gossip Girl"-Style Trends, From Tasteful To Tacky

    You always got the feeling that they put way more effort into the clothes on the show than they did the plotlines. Here's a recap, from best to worst.

    1. The Great: Blair's Pussybows

    ...and Chuck's ascots:

    It's how you knew Blair and Chuck were meant to be.

    2. Sequins

    The stylists were gratuitous yet for the most part tasteful with their use of sequins.

    The sequins, in this case, are overshadowed by Serena's perfectly disheveled hair and distracting cleavage.

    3. Blair's Occasional 1950s Thing

    Blair's retro wardrobe is what makes her infinitely more charming than Serena, who as we will later see, dresses like she's stuck in 2004.

    4. Bows

    Look at those dimples!

    5. The "Rosemary's Baby" Look

    Blair also had an occasional 1960s thing.

    6. The Good: Serena Van Der Woodsen's Ponytail

    This is the most Pinteresting ponytail on the internet.

    7. Interesting Coats

    Gossip Girl always had a knack for making autumn in New York look like the most amazing time and place to be (which it is).

    8. The Acceptable: Mixed Prints

    9. Blair's Little Old Lady Outfits

    Sometimes she was a little more Nancy Reagan than Anna Wintour.

    10. Ruffles

    A rare sighting of Blair in shorts.

    11. The Slightly Bad: Floral Stepford Wife Dresses

    12. Chuck's Rainbow Wardrobe

    13. The Bad: Boob Cutout Dresses

    Serena's cleavage was practically a supporting cast member.

    Here's Georgina, pulling it off rather well.

    14. Cloché Hats

    15. The Really Bad: Serena's Rachel Zoe-esque Boho Style

    During the summer months, Serena enjoys dressing like a Hamptons housewife twice her age.

    16. Thigh-High Boots

    17. The "Golfer" Look

    LOL. Remember Jenny Humphrey???

    18. Arm Satchels

    They always seemed to make $5000 designer handbags look awful and clunky.

    19. Fedoras

    This is, quite possibly, the worst Dan has ever looked.

    20. The Unacceptable: Weird Patterned Tights

    21. Serena's Micro-Skirts

    Serena always could have used a couple extra inches.

    22. The "Shawl Cardigan"

    Hopefully we will never see these again after this show ends.

    Here's Serena, wearing like 5 of them at the same time.

    23. Serena's Revealing Hervé Dresses

    Just because you don't look lumpy in them doesn't mean you should wear them.!image-number=31

    24. Blair's Uggs
