Carrie Bradshaw 101: How to dress like TV's most iconic fashionista
Stunning in a Suit
Carrie never really took on the pantsuit in the original series but we see her rocking it in the reboot.
STYLE TIP: For days when you feel like dressing in an androgynous fashion but still want to look pretty, a jewel-toned pantsuit is your answer.
Gloves Are Your New Accessory
There’s always fashion drama with Carrie around. Yup, that’s the part when she decided to wear gloves when pressing the lift buttons #becausecovid
STYLE TIP: Detachable capes (as seen in this outfit) give that little extra zhush in an outfit.
Bling Bling Baby
Embellished or embroidered, when you’re in Miss Bradshaw’s world the more is always merrier.
STYLE TIP: Go on and experiment with colour-blocking looks for your accessories as well.
Leather is Lovely
Leather pieces usually have a luxurious and sophisticated outlook so it’ll naturally be part of Carrie’s repertoire.
STYLE TIP: A pair of wide-legged leather trousers is a great work wear fit.
Double It Up
Carrie is the queen of bags – and in this reboot, she sports a double bag situation we are obsessed with.
STYLE TIP: Change up the bag with a waist pouch instead – the styling concept is still the same but definitely less cumbersome.
She made the name script necklace a hit in the Noughties so if you want to channel Carrie, you need to ace necklace layering.
STYLE TIP: The easiest way to layer your necklaces is to start with a choker like necklace followed by a regular length style.
It’s been trending on the runways for a while now and if it’s a trend that’s so well-loved, there’s a high chance Carrie is on that fashion wagon already.
STYLE TIP: Matching tops and bottoms are a super cute look for days when you’re faced with a fashion conundrum.
Sexy in the City
Carrie knows how to rock a sexy moment but she always stays classy.
STYLE TIP: Layer a sheer piece over a slinky slip dress if you feel that wearing a slip dress on its own is way too revealing.
High on Heels
Who loves her Manolo Blahniks more than Miss Carrie Bradshaw?
STYLE TIP: Sparkly heels and a sweatshirt-and-jeans combo is always a winner.
