Leighton Meester: I need to be fashion fierce

Leighton Meester always plans to wear retro pieces but ends up going for her default denim instead.

The actress-and-singer found fame on Gossip Girl, where her alter ego Blair Waldorf was known for her perfect preppy style.

She prefers a laidback look in her spare time but does hope to branch out a little with the things she wears.

“At home in LA I have a huge wardrobe with quirky clothes,” she revealed to German magazine Joy.

“I always think: ‘I’ll definitely wear this crazy 60s skirt soon.’ And then I still end up going for the same pair of jeans.”

Like many girls, Leighton also has a big selection of shoes. Again, however, she picks comfort over style.

“I have about 50 pairs in total. That’s not that many is it?!” she laughed. “But many of them are sneakers. I wear them a lot day to day and also when I work out.”

To maintain her slip physique, Leighton can often be found getting active. When she can, she’ll stick to exercising outdoors.

“In LA, I go for walks and I swim,” she shared. “Besides that, I love Pilates and yoga. When I’m shooting elsewhere, I’ll do at-home workouts with my trainer, cardio training or weights.

“I also love surfing, water skiing and wakeboarding, but I don’t often get round to it. Luckily I always find time to go for a walk with my dogs.”
