Hey, Upper East Siders — Gossip Girl is back with new drama, fresh faces, and most importantly, enviable fashion. The HBO Max reboot premiers this week, with Canadian actress Jordan Alexander serving as Constance Billard’s new royalty.

And thanks to paparazzi snaps and preview clips, there are already numerous Instagram accounts dedicated to ID'ing the clothes and accessories the GG characters wear. But most pieces, like Gossip Girl herself, are out of reach — so we’ve found eight pieces that embody Jordan and her crew on the show, at the scandalous price of under $100. XOXO…

Roland Longsleeve, $50

The Gossip Girl cast — especially Jordan — knows the polo shirt isn’t just a prep school staple, but a streetwear one. With its cropped cut, this striped version can be dressed down easily with sneakers or jeans.

UO 00s Orange Plaid Kilt Skirt, $59

Even in the OG Gossip Girl, plaid skirts reigned supreme. The preppy staple is surprisingly versatile — and this patched variation can easily be taken from school to cool.

Urban Outfitters

Winston Sweater Vest, $88

Sweater vests are officially streetwear, preppy roots aside. The relaxed fit of this navy iteration makes layering easy; you can wear it over a graphic tee or a light sweater.

LA Hearts Long Sleeve Button Front Dress, $45

Collared dresses are in tune with the Constance Billard dress-code, as well as current trends. This ruched iteration will keep you looking chic — just accessorize with elegant jewelry and designer heels.

Fila Trigate Sneakers, $80

Laid-back yet put-together, these Fila sneakers are one of the few affordable footwear options seen in the reboot. Worn by Jordan’s leading character, it’s only a matter of time before the chunky shoes are sold out.

Midland Button-Up, $30

The new GG trades in its traditional feminine styles for ones inspired by menswear. This oversized button-up shirt can be worn as a dress — as seen on Jordan — or add a pop of color to a more casual fit.

Chunky Medium Hoop Earrings, $24

While the OG Gossip Girl might have scoffed at gold hoops, the reboot embraces them wholeheartedly. These Madewell earrings are a quality and budget-friendly option that will go with everything.
