Style Cues

Blair Waldorf may have popularized tights and headbands but it’s really Eric Daman we should be thanking. The former assistant designer for Sex and the City is responsible for the outfits we regularly fawn over on Gossip Girl. Unfortunately, we don’t have an Upper East Sider’s closet or credit card limit. But, Daman has offered up You Know You Want It: Style-Inspiration-Confidence to help women create their own signature look a la Blair Waldorf and Serena van der Woodsen without breaking the bank. The style guide, which hit shelves this week, also features a foreword by Leighton Meester. – Mishal Cazmi
