When speaking of TV characters which were major influences in the 90s and early aughts, one cannot miss out on Carrie Bradshaw, whose fashion-forward style dominated Sex and the City. Come to think of it, one of the reasons why we still catch reruns of the series even now is her personal style which introduced experimental and edgy to the enthusiasts early on. Going-out looks which encapsulated that cool vibe, classics with a twist and that chic layering still has us rooting for the 90s protagonist.
Now, with a reboot of the show announced a couple of weeks back, we can hardly wait to see the fashion icon serve some of those distinct looks like the pro she is. In the meantime, Team POPxo decided to dig up the archives and recreate some of Carrie Bradshaw's looks from SATC (did we mention we are huge fans)! From basics and party-dressing to everything else, scroll to see our take on Carrie’s style.
While most of us always associate Carrie Bradshaw's style in SATC with avant-garde fashion choices, it isn't as if her wardrobe had a dearth of staples in any way. Case in point: this effortless chic play of achromatic colours, one that can be achieved with the classics in your wardrobe.
POPxo's Senior Social Media Manager, Sayunkta Jain is a fan of how the leading TV personality styled her staples and for recreating a look from Sex and the City, she went along that route. A classic white shirt was teamed with black pants and a matching half-sleeved top to achieve the failsafe look and voila! Should working a similar version be on your mind, scroll down for options to add to cart.
It goes without saying that Carrie's wardrobe had its fair share of going-out looks, ranging from maximal to easy-breezy. Putting together separates effortlessly, her party outfits featured cool colour combinations and attention to detail, matched of course, with some stellar accessory and makeup looks worth trying out.
Janvi Manchanda, Writer at POPxo, picked this on-fleek Gram-worthy look comprising of a green skirt and a white shirt with pocket details. Opting for a similar mini like the one seen on Carrie Bradshaw, she tucked in her classic shirt and styled it with sleeves rolled up just a tad bit to get the look. Thinking of copping it for yourself? Get all you need from our curated list below.
Layers, layer, layers! Honestly, if you were to take a cursory glance at Carrie Bradshaw's closet, you would find an array of enticing layers. Texture, silhouette, colour and styling—you name it, she has it!
A monochrome look really hits home and considering it's still the season for warm layers, I decided to recreate this head-to-toe black outfit. A plain black wool coat and a pair of stockings came together, which I styled with ankle-length boots as opposed to the lengthier version seen on the protagonist. Whether you have been on the lookout for an ideal back-to-work fit or a chic OOTD that never fails to impress, this one is as versatile as they come!
Girl sure knows how to style a balanced look, one that incorporates the best of accessories, colour and details. I mean there's obviously a reason (and then some) why Sarah Jessica Parker's portrayal of Carrie Bradshaw remains iconic!
POPxo Senior Writer Khushboo Sharma loves a good dress, especially when it is a versatile option that leaves room to experiment. For working a similar outfit like Carrie's, she styled a midi-length dress in red with a neutral-hued trench coat. Don't miss out on that on-point minaudiere, metallic pumps and that dab of lipstick. As always, similar finds are just ahead!
