How to Dress Like Georgina Sparks


Georgina Sparks played by Michelle Trachtenberg on Gossip Girl

It’s time for another Gossip Girl fashion article! In case you missed the other articles in College Fashion’s Gossip Girl Fashion series, check out How To Dress Like Serena Van Der Woodsen, How To Dress Like Blair Waldorf, How To Dress Like Jenny Humphrey, and How To Dress Like Vanessa Abrams.

Today, I’m going to break down the style of Georgina Sparks, Gossip Girl’s newest female cast member, and the Upper-East Side’s resident evil party girl and life-ruiner. If your wardrobe is feeling a little too vanilla lately, a sprinkle of Georgina’s bad girl style might be just what you need to spice things up.

Georgina’s Style

Ms. Sparks is a fairly new Gossip Girl cast member, and therefore we only have a small picture of her style from the outfits we’ve seen her in so far. Whether or not she’ll return next season is yet to be determined, but one thing’s for sure: her style is fierce.

Georgina’s the kind of girl who doesn’t mind killing multiple animals at a time in the name of fashion, and thus, leather is a staple of her look. She further epitomizes bad-girl style by wearing lots of black and other dark colors, and piling on the studded rocker jewelry. Georgie is not the type of girl that you’d ever catch in a floral-print buttercup yellow dress; let’s just leave it at that.

Georgina’s Wardrobe Essentials

Leather Jackets

Georgina Sparks from Gossip Girl loves leather jackets

Every self-respecting bad girl needs a leather jacket in her wardrobe. Georgina probably owns 20 of them, and she wears them everywhere. If you want a leather jacket like Georgina’s, Mike & Chris makes amazing (yet pricey) ones, available at ShopBop. Vintage stores are also great places to find inexpensive but gorgeous leather jackets. On the cheap, stores like Wet Seal and H&M carry faux leather jackets that are nice to both animals and your wallet!

Lots of Jewelry

Georgina on Gossip Girl wears tons of jewelry

Georgina loves jewelry and always piles it on! She is not a follower of the “less is more” school of thought when it comes to necklaces, earrings, and bracelets. In nearly every episode, Georgina was always sporting at least 2 necklaces at a time, loud earrings, and tons of studded bangles.

If you want this look for yourself, stock up on boho-fabulous costume jewelry at Charlotte Russe and Urban Outfitters, and wear it all at once!

Skinny Black Pants

Georgina from Gossip Girl's skinny black pants

Along with all of her jewelry and leather jackets, Georgina usually rocks a pair of black skinny jeans under a tunic-length tank or tee. The black jeans she wears on the show are K Karl Lagerfeld Wax Finish Jeans, and they retail for $213 (on sale as of 5/29/08!) If that’s too pricey for you, American Apparel’s Stretch Twill Pants are a more affordable option.

Badass Heels

Georgina Sparks Heels

Georgina’s fierce style trickles down to her footwear! She is always wearing a pair of 4-inch or higher black patent leather stilettos, for maximum bad girl effect. If her Chloe Black Patent Motorcycle Heels (right) are out of your price range, Nine West’s Hotpic Heels are really similar and only cost about $50!

Lame’ Leggings

Like her semi-friend Vanessa, Georgina loves her some American Apparel shiny leggings in lamé black! This look isn’t for everyone, but Georgina pulls it off well, pairing the leathery legwear with a long navy tunic top and patent leather spike heels.

Other Georgina Staples

Black Nail Polish

For a bad girl look from head to toe, literally, black nail polish is a must. Designer black nail polishes from brands like Chanel are available on good old eBay, but if you’re on a budget, a bottle of Wet ‘N’ Wild from your local drugstore will do the trick.

Dark Eye Makeup

Georgina is always rocking a smokey eye – it’s the main element of her makeup look and adds to her bad-girl appeal. If you’re great with makeup, create this look for yourself using black eyeliner, gray eyeshadow, and tons of mascara. If you don’t know how to do a smokey eye, the CARGO Smokey Eye Kit has everything you need to create the look, plus easy-to-follow instructions!

Your Thoughts?

What do you think? Are you loving Georgina’s bad-girl fierceness or not? Whether you think her style is awful or want to cop it for yourself, I want to hear what you think! Make sure you leave a comment!

    I absolutely love Georgina’s style. Unfortunately I don’t watch Gossip Girl like the rest of the nation, but i do admit i love the style the show’s drenched with! Georgina’s style is very similar to my own and i love how laid-back, but fierce, it is. Blair’s wardrobe also speaks volumes to me. Both of them have a simple, laid-back but incredibly loud in style, so i’m definitely going to be Googling these two after your post.

    (I love Georgina’s style, but the leggings and heels? Not quite doable and I admit i’m not so fond of. But, hey, you can’t like everything, right?

    Not a fan of georgina, but definitley like her clothes, i dont think I could pull it off but somehow it just works. I would love to see one for Jenny I think shes the one I can relate to the most in terms of clothes. But I also love Blair’s wardrobe, but sadly it wouldnt traslate so well into my lifetyle.

    I think that Georgina is a witch but I have to admit it, I love her bad girl style! I wouldn’t wear those clothes, because they don’t fit with me, but she looks great with that lot of jewellery, and her leather jackets! My style is more like Serena, and thanks for all the articles, I really enjoyed them. And this page is exactly what I was looking for.

    I detest Georgina even though I’ve never read or watched Gossip Girl. But I have to say, her style is pretty badass. Although I’m more of a Blair and Serena girl myself, I would love to paint my nails black. I have black nail polish from Chanel (I got it off of eBay like you advised) but my parents won’t let me paint them! Ah well, you can’t always get what you want! (I was tempted to write after that: but of you try sometimes, you just might find you get what you need)

    i adore georginas style, although the new jenny humphreys is by far better
    i love the leather jackets (bomber jackets) because im in Australia and its winter so they r SHRT! (so hot right now)

    i also idolize the badass heels, absolutely hot but the rest is sorta hippy even tho shes liek rebel, i think its her jewelry it just doesnt suit her. maybe big hoops and black chokers and gun metal studded bangles work betta? :s waiting ur verdict LOL

    I absolutely love her style, but I can’t help myself but ask the question can these pieces of clothing meant for all year round?

    I’ve been looking for style inspiration and Georgina is definitely one of my style role models.

    Leather jackets-own two of them and can’t wait for the weather to cool off.

    Jewelry-I don’t like to wear too much, but I’ve definitely been wearing more

    Skinny black pants-on my “To Buy” list

    Heels-not so much

    leggings-too much for me

    Black nailpolish- I like dark colors, but I prefer a dark purple

    Dark eye makeup-my favorite way to do my makeup

    I love her style, when you see her coming you feel scared cuz her fierce style. She is alot like Serena effortless, but the difference between their style is Georgina will only wear dark colors like purples and blue, the only bright color I seen her in is silver. She is alot more elegant in season 4 and 5, she wears tight black gowns.

    gotta love her style! i said the most horrible things about her while watching season 1 again, can’t believed she messed with Serena&Dan. normally i don’t really like Blair, but that revenge against Georgina was awesome!
