There's never any shortage of relationship drama on Gossip Girl — when there's a small group of hot people who are oddly averse to dating outside their circle, we guess it's just bound to happen. But while some people are seemingly drawn to one another, despite their differences, others should probably learn to live apart, no matter how badly they want things to work. Incidentally, the same thing goes for the outfits worn on GG: Some pieces, like Vanessa's ethnic garb, really don't belong together, while other seemingly mismatched garments are made for one another. Although Vanessa was absent from Episode 4.6, "Easy J," her mishmash aesthetic was alive and well — just executed better. Check out our favorite mix and match moments below.
