It has been 20 years since SJP stepped out as Carrie on the iconic show, Sex and the City. Watching the show in 2018, we recognize some of the style successes and failures of the late 90's into the 2000's. While not every outfit was a hit, we love the boldness and can definitely feel nostalgic towards some of these looks. Let's take a peak at some of our favorite Carrie Bradshaw styles.
Talk about a power couple! The sheer trends was so 90's, it is no coincidence that the trend is back in full swing today. The 2018 update? Today many starlets sport this sexy style as a full length look paired with big, oversized undies. Carrie looks simply stunning in her strapless nude gown. Another trend that we see being recycled from the past are sky high slit dresses which have gotten the supermodel stamp of approval over the past few seasons. Miranda is giving us major 90's cold shoulder and we couldn't be more here for it.
We are obsessing over this halter. Everything from the fabric to this dark terra cotta color looks amazing on this socialite. Name plate necklaces are more recently coming back into fashion with social media stars like Kylie Jenner often sporting these dainty pieces (although hers is in honor of her newborn daughter, Stormi). Microbags are the it bags of the summer and we can't get enough! This casual look just exudes coolness.
White on white has never looked so good! This look still feels so fresh years later, which just goes to show you that monochromatic looks are forever classic and timeless. I love how she wears her semi-sheer blouse with a slinky champagne tank underneath. For me, this outfit screams Hamptons, but I can also imagine this look being worn for a night out during the summer. Her natural hair and makeup look with bronzed skin is giving me the ultimate summer vibes.
Here is yet another outfit that looks as if it were taken yesterday! Ruffles have been a big trend over the past few seasons. I love how feminine and delicate this look is. Muted tones and nude colors are very hot for summer and Carrie is no stranger to this palette. Again, the fashionista finishes off the look with curly highlighted hair, a chic and low maintenance style that is perfect for summer.
This is an outfit that gets five stars from me. When it comes to mixing prints, Carrie Bradshaw wrote the book although in this case, the prints are more minimal. Fanny packs are the hottest accessory this summer. While 90's and early 00's fanny packs were typically worn around the waist, they get an update today with models and the Insta-famous wearing them across their shoulders. Stripes and polka dots are back in fashion and there is no doubt that our instagram feeds will be filled with these classic prints.
Who can forget when Carrie stepped out in this iconic athleisure look. The star pairs her cami and athletic shorts with a pair of heels (not shown here) to create her unique look. Athleisure is definitely still happening in fashion today and Carrie was the trailblazer. This is an outfit that can be mimicked today and still feel high fashion and new.
