This one is going to be a challenge surely. To list or rank the most memorable outfits of Carrie Bradshaw is a humongous task. And nobody who has been a fan of Sex and the City will ask why. She redefined fashion and took it to a new level altogether. The best thing was how seamlessly each seemed to blend into the show. Through all the six seasons and the movie, her choice of wardrobe was the talking point. Huge kudos to her outfit planner Patricia Fields for this, as well.
Most viewers have been left starry-eyed with her array of outfits. Surely searches have been made on digital closets, or smart fitting rooms for inspiration. And replication too, of course! Her signature tutu and fur coats became the focus of every outfit planner. As a result ladies planned changes in their wardrobe staples too.
It is tough to enumerate the memorable outfits of Carrie Bradshaw easily. These defined an era, a slice of time. Her outfits were conversation starters and continue to be so. Fashion houses became more famous for being worn by her. Many watched the shows for inspiration for their wardrobe. For the sake of fashion and to honour her sense of style, it is worth making the attempt though.
Here the most memorable outfits of Carrie Bradshaw:
She quite made this her own, did she not? The tutu and Carrie are often mentioned in the same breath. Surprisingly she did not wear it except in the opening credits. Oh yes, also in the movie. But such was the impact that it stayed in everyone’s minds. Have you tried one yet? Ask your outfit planner app if your body type supports this look. You may then go all out and indulge.
Black crop top
An entirely new spin to the classic LBD look was her little black crop top look. The gorgeous but simple look was completed with a pleated skirt. The bare midriff, washboard and beautiful, stays emblazoned on collective memory. Carrie Bradshaw completely nailed the look here.
Carrie Bradshaw sported the Madonna look in her 80s. No one goes for this today but this was a rage back then. An outfit planner app would go all out designing looks based on Madonna. Check out her broad leather belts and OTT hairdo. Also the accessories she sported were typically Madonna. Might not be in sync with present tastes, but memorable indeed.
The white dress
Oozing class, Carrie Bradshaw’s white dress in the SATC movie has become iconic. It is available on many sites. You can check out Chicisimo as well for suggestions on how to own this look. It is a testimony to what simple lines and cut can do to a dress. People actually made it a point to add this to their wardrobe. Even if just for keepsake. So much so that Halston Heritage became a famous name overnight. They designed this iconic dress after all.
Roof top party
In an entirely different avatar, she is seen having a wild time at a roof top party. An unusual colour combination stood out in her outfit here. Adding to this was the flower accessory on her dress. With her hot pants and plunging neckline, she literally let her hair down. Go on, plan this look and get adventurous in your wardrobe picks.
Green in Paris
Do not go green at her beautiful choice of dress here. The colour and the design of this outfit rules minds and hearts to this day. You can actually find replicas online. And then get your outfit planner app to carve out the right look for you. The whole look was soft and touching to anyone who has watched SATC.
Among the most beautiful creations by Patricia Fields was Carrie’s skating dress. Completely OTT and doing what is never done while ice skating. Who dresses like so for skating? Well, Carrie did, and she even had a cigarette dangling from her fingers. And the look was super chic as always. A short skating dress with broad belt topped with a white front open coat, just wow!
Flower on dress
For a large part of SATC in seasons 2 and 3, Patricia Fields chose to put flowers on dresses. In fact these outfits became quite the rage. The trick lay in keeping the outfit simple. In fact very uncluttered and toned down. And then suddenly, a big flower on one side to steal the show. This look worked on many outfit choices of hers. For example, there was the look of hers in a one-shouldered black dress. Aside from the fact that she was looking stunning is the oversized white flower on the shoulder. The whole outfit stands out from the rest of her looks because of that floral addition.
Her navy blue embellished outfit for her Opera outing remains a memorable one too. With a deep square neckline, it created a dramatic effect. It was simple lines with swishy borders, adding a touch of utter femininity. Have you considered adding this look to your wardrobe? Remember all you will need is confidence to stride out and make a statement.
