Gossip Girl Fashion: Fear Not the Foliage! Go Novelty Chic Like Blair Waldorf

This dastardly Gossip Girl hiatus is giving us plenty of time to kick back and take a look over some of the great GG fashions we've seen already on the show this year. Take a look at one of the awesome styles that kind of took us by surprise:

While we usually tend to associate novelty prints with kitschy upholstery and twee mid-century vintage clothing, Blair Leighton Meester)’s look from the GG Season 5 premiere definitely made us want to reconsider our prejudices. After all, if the Queen B herself is willing to to take a walk on the wild side with this leafy gown — and wear to a royal gala, no less! — then maybe we just haven’t been looking in the right places.

We went digging for some similarly quirky prints to see if we could find something that Blair herself would wear — imagining she was on a budget — and we think we came up with a pretty exhaustive list. Remember to exercise caution when wearing one of these head-turning pieces and tone down the rest of the outfit accordingly.
