Style Files: Blake Lively

With effortless style and classic elegance, Blake Lively is the epitome of a glam style icon. She has come a long way since her Gossip Girl days, playing notorious high school party girl Serena Van Der Woodsen, to currently stunning on the cover of Vogue, and wowing at numerous red-carpet events.

The good news is that with a few tricks, it is actually remarkably easy to emulate Blake’s style yourself.

Blake’s Wardrobe: Black & White


You may have noticed, Blake likes to keep her style simple by choosing a monochrome colour palette for her clothes.

The great news is that black and white are incredibly easy to wear and to style by suiting everyone.

In the above photo, Blake mixes several different textures and patterns. The monochrome colours tie everything together, making her look totally polished and chic.


Blake again looks beautiful wearing black and white, and the result is anything but boring.



Keeping things elegant and lady-like, she opts for knee-length dresses and skirts, as seen on this 1950s inspired ensemble below. Get the look with a pair of pumps and a dress or skirt which cinches in at the waist (to avoid fabric swamping your body and enhancing your curves).

Opulent Eyewear


Blake loves to choose sunglasses which add a bit of extra glitz and glamour to her wardrobe. Take these beautiful oversized bejewelled pearl sunglasses above.

Copy Blake’s glam sunglasses by going for some of these beautiful designer options below.

The Jimmy Choo VIVY/S create an feminine cat-eye look with the addition of jewelled details in the corner of the frames. These frames come in a variety of colours too, including pale grey, pink gold and violet. There are plenty of options to suit your complexion and hair colour.


Like Blake’s pair, the Dior Diorama 1 sunglasses will completely stand out and elevate your style to new heights of glamour. The muted colour will ensure that they work well with most articles of clothing.

Blake also favours embellishments through beautiful and unique jewellery pieces, especially rings.

Many high-street and designer stores stock stunning stand-out jewellery. Remember, you don’t need to save rings and other jewellery just for special occasions – they can add so much oomph to an outfit!


This blonde bombshell is also known for her flawless makeup.

Wear make-up in neutral tones. Think nude lips with a small dab of eye shadow and lash-lengthening mascara.

She always seems to have a flawless make-up base, so invest in a fantastic high-quality foundation & primer. Be sure to get the right colour for your complexion.

Another tip to create a polished look is to contour – grab a bronzer and brush lightly under your cheekbones, and use a highlighter on the top. It’s a super slimming look.
