Love Leighton Meester’s Gossip Girl Cape? We’ve Got Vintage-y Suggestions

As a native of New York City's Upper East Side, Leighton Meester's character on Gossip Girl always looks chic in her designer wardrobe. Here she's spotted on set in a Gryphon cape, wool skirt, mustard accessories, and the always classic pair of Mary Janes. We think this cape is a great way to spice up a look, and definitely has potential to dethrone your go-to fall peacoat.

The show's fashion has also inspired a new clothing line with Romeo & Juliet Couture that is set to hit stores sometime this fall. In the meantime, check out our vintage-y suggestions!

Cape It Away

If you have $675 to spare, head to Saks for Leighton’s olive Gryphon Sherlock Cape. Assuming you don’t though, check out this vintage 1960’s Sherlock Cape.

Wee Cape

Capes aren’t just for adults, so stop by Madeit for a capelet for the wee one. These reversible capelets are handmade, so each one is unique!

If Little Red Riding Hood is your fashion muse, take a look at this free red cape project from BurdaStyle. Your look will be straight out of a Brothers Grimm tale.

Sharp and Poised

If capes are a bit too "Once Upon a Time" for you, you can still emulate Leighton’s Upper East Side flair with a pair of Mary Janes. These classic blue ones are retro-ish and sassy.
$15, EpitomeGirl
studded pumps and booties
While we’re on the topic of Gossip Girl, Blake Lively recently wore these stunning studded Brian Atwood pumps. They’ll cost you about $1,900, but Two String Jane has a tutorial for some studded ankle boots that have a similar fearless vibe.
mustard knit hat
Where a typical person would be headed in Leighton’s beret is questionable, so let’s stick with a slouchy mustard hat. Cute, cozy and functional, you can grab one at softspoken’s Etsy shop or make your own with The How-To Gal’s tutorial.
