##Putting together your Serena Van Der Woodsen Costume##
Step 1: Get a blonde wig in a straight or slightly wavy style. If you have a straight style, use some gel and hairspray to add some wave to it by twirling sections around your finger.
Step 2: Give your makeup a beachy style that will compliment your hair. Put on a neutral, terra cotta shade of eyeshadow with mascara and a thin line of black liquid eyeliner.
Step 3: Add some bronzer to your cheeks, forehead, chin, and nose for a healthy glow. Slick on neutral-toned lipstick, too.
Step 4: Put on a fitted grey dress. Serena wears a lot of grey. Choose a dress that can double as a “career dress” beneath a blazer and still manage to look club-ready without.
Step 5: Put on a fitted grey blazer and roll up the sleeves.
Step 6: Pick up a sparkly brown statement necklece or large brown costume jewelry necklace.
Step 7: Pull on a pair of pantyhose with a subtle sparkle to them and wear them with a smart pair of grey heels.
Step 8: Accessorize your look with an oversized purse and Serena’s ever-present cell phone to get the latest scoop.
