Who's Wearing What

Sex and the City is Returning! Here's a Look Back At Our Favourite Carrie Moments

By Hannah Rose, Copywriter

And just like that…they’re back. Well, 3 of them at least and we can’t wait to see what they have in store for us this time round with their 2021 spin off. Sex and the City was the show that got everyone talking. Whether it was about Carrie’s love for Mr Big or Samantha’s sex life, we were gripped by the glitzy lives of the 30-something city girls. But, the thing that gripped us the most has to be those iconic fashion moments. And, we’re not going to lie, it’s the thing that gets us most excited for the new series. Like, will SJP have toned it down a little in her 50s or will she dress just as extravagantly? Personally, we’re hoping for the latter.

The revival’s official announcement has definitely come at a good time – a time when we desperately need some excitement, and if that comes from the drama in Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte’s lives, then so be it. Whether you’re already a fan of the show and your lockdown hobby has been watching SATC reruns on repeat, or you’ve seen the trailer all over Instagram and you’re wondering what all the fuss is about, we’ve got a feeling ‘And Just Like That’ is going to be a must-see. 

If you’ve watched the trailer, you’ll know that it doesn’t give much away (other than make us want to move to New York, of course), so to amp up the excitement and remind us what we could have in store on the style front, here’s the Sex and the City outfits we loved. Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker), the spotlight’s on you…

1. LBD Loving

When it comes to Sex and the City outfits, it wasn’t all about those flamboyant numbers. SJP even made simple styles like this LBD look special. We’d be grinning too if we looked this good.

2. Tu-Cute For Words

With a pink top, mesh tutu and strappy stilettos, Carrie proved that super-cute outfits aren’t just for little girls. The question on everyone’s lips is, will she wear a tutu in the new series? Our fingers are crossed.

3. Line It Up

When the office beckons us, we’ll definitely be taking inspiration from Carrie Bradshaw’s stripy two-piece. She takes sophisticated style in her stride (literally) and we love the addition of the baker boy hat for a boy-ish feel.

4. Let It Bloom

Carrie moved florals away from their purely pretty stereotype with this glamorous curve-hugging maxi. This has to be one of our favourite Sex and the City outfits, ever. What’s not to love?

5. 90s Atheistic

A fan of the bandana? So was Carrie (well, her stylist at least). An absolute saviour on bad hair days - not that she ever had one – this bandana and sunnies combo is making us nostalgic for the 90s.

6. Varsity Vibes

SJP nailed casual, too. Thanks to the likes of SATC, varsity tops and cargo trousers are still ‘in’ right now. And, we’re sure it’s no coincidence that so is that cropped bob…

7. Dancefloor, Please

With its square neckline and snake print, Carrie’s statement silhouette is the spitting image of the styles in fashion right now. And, it’s giving us all the inspo for our debut night out with the girls.

8. Follow Suit

One of the most iconic outfits from the SATC films has to be this pink stripe shirt and white suit combo. It’s so Carrie Bradshaw. The too-cool-for-school tie adds that effortless touch.

9. Pretty in Pink

Carrie was all about bright shades and she looked amazing in this pink dress. Teamed with silver stilettos, it’s giving us all those party vibes, which will hopefully be coming soon…

10. Patchwork Perfection

Who doesn’t love a statement layer? And, if anyone can pull one off, it’s SJP. Clashing colours and prints, there literally were no boundaries when it came to Sex and the City outfits, and we love that.

11. Floral Flocks

We’ll be looking to this floral peplum midi when the races are back on, that’s for sure. Pulling off statement shades and bold prints was definitely one of her fortes, and this is impossible not to love.

12. Minimal Chic

As well as her bold outfits, we loved Carrie’s more natural looks, too. In particular, this simple white midi with minimal accessories . So chic, so effortless and so timeless.

13. Parisian Girl

Wanna know what she’s thinking? ‘What super-cool outfit will I wear next?’, of course. Braving a flat cap and stripes, SJP even manages to make the baguette look cool.

14. Unlikely Combos

Carrie shows us that clothes you wouldn’t usually dream of putting together can, in fact, be put together – think bright bandanas, floaty tops, city shorts and heels.

15. That Iconic Dress

It’s the outfit we wish we’d worn to prom. With its OTT flower, metallic detail and figure-flattering shape, she looks incredible. We can’t think of a better outfit to end this with.
