If you could switch wardrobes with one character on TV, who would you pick?
We'd definitely choose Vampire Diaries' Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrev) for her easy chic style. StyleBakeryTeen.com agrees with us and spills on how to copy this vampire-dating-teen's best looks.
Step one: Invest in a leather jacket. You'll give a simple outfit major style. Step two: Have plenty of basics on hand. You'll always find Elena wearing jeans and a slim-fit tee or tank. Step three: Make sure your outfit has an interesting detail, like lace on a tank or a tee with studs. And finally, find yourself a signature piece like a chunky bracelet or charm necklace – something that people will see and automatically think of you.
Wanna know where Elena shops? Then head over to the CW store. They actually tell you where to get the clothes you see in the episodes.
In one episode, Ms. Gilbert wears the Jade Leather Jacket by KRMA. This cute fashion fixture costs a whopping $598! Elena also wears the Faux Leather Biker Jacket by Kitson LA for a more reasonable $79. In case you were wondering, she's wearing the $600 version in the photo on the left.
Nina gets the best of both worlds on the TVD set. She dresses like a normal high-schooler for most of her scenes, but she also gets to try on some pretty amazing period looks for her scenes as Katherine.
