Westwick's rough style

Ed Westwick

Ed Westwick has relaxed his style since finishing Gossip Girl.

The 26-year-old actor is best known for his role as dapper billionaire Chuck Bass in hit TV show Gossip Girl.

After playing such a fashionable character Ed has enjoyed being able to relax more with his style since the programme finished last year.

"It's relaxed. I live in LA and it's so laidback - and hot - I hang around in flip-flops and a T-shirt. I've let the sartorial side of myself down a bit. I'm a little rougher around the edges," he told British magazine InStyle when asked how his style has changed since filming finished.

"Don't get me wrong, I appreciate a well-cut suit. During the Gossip Girl days, I'd go to fashion shows and smarten up. In general, New York is more edgy in terms of fashion."

Ed does have a particular area in which he likes to splurge. Rather than purchasing designer brands, the British star enjoys rummaging around a particular place for second-hand goods.

"I've always been a big fan of leather jackets. I've just bought a vintage one by Wood Wood," he smiled. "It's from this shop in LA, Schaeffers. I could happily spend every penny I have in there - and often do!"

British Ed recently admitted he hasn't fully come to terms with living in California. As well as acclimatising to the warmer weather, the handsome actor has had to get used to being away from his family.

"One thing I always do in LA? Probably get more suntans than New York, you know. But, LA is great, as well. I mean, I'm still getting to know it," he explained to

"You know I came here in January, and I was only here for a few months. I spent the summer in the UK, but recently came back, and am enjoying being part of the buzz here. I don't think it's going to be me forever. London still has my heart; it's where my family is. One day I will make the pilgrimage home."
