Ranking The Fashion From Episode 7

So many outfits to be thankful for…

Welcome back, Upper East Siders! It’s wild to think we were here just two short months ago judging our little hearts away. Did you miss me? Because I certainly missed you!

While it’s exciting to get back into all things fashion and Gossip Girl, we do need to talk about the elephant in the room. The second half of Season 1 is being dropped within two weeks, so three episodes dropped last week and the remaining three will be dropped this coming Thursday. So, in the spirit of the season, we’ll be moving through these rankings at a rapid-fire speed.

So, let’s not waste any more time and get into all the looks from Episode 7: “Once Upon a Time in the Upper West Side.”


Saskia’s ~interesting~ appearance outfit:


The hat alone is such a fashion disaster. And don’t even get me started on the clashing patterns and FUR jacket! 


The teacher trio’s tired but cozy looks:


Guys, I’m so bored of these same old outfits again and again. Where’s the pizzazz? Where’s the drama? Ugh, I can see why we never focused on the teachers in the original GG.


Kate’s cute Thanksgiving striped look:


It may be giving “soccer mom who’s scolding her bratty children while also hiding wine in her coffee mug,” but it works for Ms. Kate.


Audrey’s layered uniform:


I love that each episode seems to have a changing uniform standard for the girls. Trust me, this is not the last layered uniform on this list.


Audrey’s drab Thanksgiving dress:


These kids have all the money in the world and yet this dress looks like something someone could buy from a clearance rack. I’m not mad, just disappointed.


Nick’s cozy hosting fit:


Zoya seems to take after her dad in the sweater department, and I couldn’t love that more!! I hope we see more of these funky sweaters as we head into the winter episodes!


Julien’s dope FUBU jersey:


Fun fact: I was completely obsessed with wearing FUBU and Baby Phat when I was growing up in Queens, NY. Seeing this jersey made me so nostalgic. 20/10, I’m probably looking to buy this online as we speak.


Zoya’s girl-next-door uniform:


We’re back with the layered uniform! But this time, little Z took a cue from her dad and brought out the funky sweater. So cute!


Julien’s Betty Cooper–esque uniform:


Okay, I can’t really explain this properly, but when I see this sweater, all I see is Betty Cooper from Riverdale a la Season 1. And that’s not an insult at all! The sweater is so cute and cozy. Plus, look at the layering!!


Zoya’s sweet hosting sweater:


No one can step to the Lotts when it comes to their sweater game. No one.


Lola’s polka dot dream dress:


Lola doesn’t really get a lot of screen time and, after the messiness she pulled at Thanksgiving, I kinda see why. Still, the dress is super cute.


Saskia’s meddling floral look:


Well, this is definitely a first for these posts! Someone from the bottom actually made it to the top five. An impossible feat, sure, but of course Saskia could pull it off like she pulled off this dress.


Julien’s out-on-the-town fit:


While Z also wore a sheepskin jacket in this episode, Julien’s is better due to the darker color. However, I’m not a fan of the bag, as it kinda clashes with the jacket.


Gideon’s upcycled cape:


This. Man. Always. Delivers!! This cape is so weird and outlandish and gorgeous. And, of course, he absolutely pulls it off because who else could?!


Julien’s daring Thanksgiving gown:


I wish we could’ve seen a full picture of this dress (cue eye-rolling here), but alas, this dress was still incredible. In a “blink and you’ll miss it” moment, you can see three cutouts across the back, which gives it daring edge. Just fabulous, as always!


Kiki’s comeback look:


Audrey’s mom was going through it in the first half of the season, so we never really got to see her in anything but sweats. But that’s all in the past now, because this look is EVERYTHING. She looks so good that I’m speechless. I hope this isn’t the last time we see Ms. Keeks in the top spot.

Until the next episode, my darlings!!
