We still can't get over this "Sex and the City" fashionista.
Are you a shoe addict and overall fashionista? Well, you’ve come to the right place!
We all fell in love with Carrie Bradshaw, the famous character played by Sarah Jessica Parker in HBO hit “Sex in the City.” She gave a performance that has left her in the minds of every woman, influenced by her bold fashion trends.
So let me share a few fun fashion trends and tips to help bring out your inner 90’s Carrie Bradshaw style since this summer season is all about bold colors, floral patterns and bringing back the 80’s and 90’s fashion styles.
Who could forget that iconic tutu in the opening credits of “Sex and The City”? Sarah Jessica Parker is prancing around Manhattan in a light pink tutu that stands out like no other.
Luckily, today the trend is coming back so you can find tutus for sale in many different styles. If you want to stay true to Carrie Bradshaw’s style, try picking a cream-colored or baby pink skirt. Then, pair it with a tight, white long-sleeved crop top for a modern spin.
Adding Sandro Sneakers and a fun black or blue denim jacket will give this look more edge. And if you’ve got more of an Audrey Hepburn style, then opt for a cute pair of ballet flats with a tight pony tale, and a statement necklace.
You are a working girl and want to make a suit look fun and stylish, but you don’t want to spend a fortune. I got you!
Massimo Dutti, a brand under the same company as Zara, is a great place to find decently priced tailored pants and suit jackets. Add an oxford shirt, or simple shirt dress in a fun bold color that pops and screams summer trend.
Like Carrie Bradshaw, instead of a blazer, why not try a vest? Besides, it’s usually too hot to wear sleeves in the summertime.
You could also give this style a more masculine look by adding a tie, similar to Diane Keaton’s famous look. But if you want to stay feminine, use a silky scarf and knot it the way you would a tie.
Carrie Bradshaw was known for mixing patterns to give her outfits a unique feel. Since this summer is the season of bold colors and floral patterns, why not mix that stripe shirt you have hiding in your closet with a bold, floral skirt?
Or maybe you could mix and match a polka-dot green shirt with a leopard print pencil skirt.
Be bold this summer and try new things!
What I always loved about Carrie Bradshaw was her ability to mix two opposing styles, like fancy structured dresses with simple sleepwear clothing.
If you’re going to a fun event this summer, why not bring the sass and edge to a structured dress you own? For example, during an episode in which Carrie went to Paris, she mixed a beautiful green floral dress with a black spiked belt and black, heavy, open-toed shoes.
In another episode, she wore a gorgeous skirt, and paired it with a simple, black T-shirt as pictured above.
What a bold and fabulous statement!
Buying shoes is better than sex. That’s right. And I’ll say it again. Shoes are better than sex.
Carrie Bradshaw shoes are to die for, and lucky for us, Sarah Jessica Parker has created her own shoe brand, the SJP Collection.
Overall it’s safe to say, if Sarah Jessica Parker is your fashion icon or inspiration, then you can’t go wrong. She — and her character Carrie Bradshaw — is a great example of a woman who isn’t afraid to take a chance and make a bold fashion statement.
Remember dressing up can be a great way to show your personality to the world! Now go show off your inner Carrie Bradshaw.
