The scheming and plotting continues as we blow through the second half of season four! What was once a business relationship is blossoming into something else for Chuck, while Dan and Blair suddenly found their blossoming friendship crammed into a cubicle. New situations called for new outfits, but not everyone succeeded in putting their best sartorial foot forward — check out who’s up for a style promotion and who deserves a pink slip below.

Blair Waldorf has attained her style maven status by sticking to her own tried and true formula. That being said, we’re all about those bright pink shorts she sported during her somewhat triumphant return to W. Here’s to trying — and succeeding! — at something stylistically different.

Always one to make a great first impression — with her clothing at least — Blair wore a stunning evening gown to the W party. Unfortunately, she was only able to flaunt it from the ballroom floor.

Not: Dan’s Too-Chunky Knit

We love a chunky knit as much as the next fashionista, but this one left Dan looking like a linebacker in luxurious wool. Pass.

All black and simple cuts do not a great office look make. The patterned tights, two-toned pumps, printed dress, and boxy blazer left a lot to be desired. And that was before B started openly sabotaging her fellow employees.
