6 Trendy Outfits To Steal From Sex and The City
Effortless Chic Styles in Sex and the City
My obsessive relationship with fashion mostly started with watching Sex and the City and admiring how the women in New York City style, work, and love. Carrie Bradshaw said "Women come to New York for the two L's: Labels and Love" - I found love in my high school classroom so I came to New York only searching for Labels. As much I love the sexy date night looks and glamorous formal gowns in Sex and the City, my favorite outfits from the show are actually the effortless chic ones. Some of the casual looks may seem less fashion-forward for 2018 unless vintage vibes are your thing, but a lot of the styles the four girls rocked are still fashionable and trendy this spring.
1. Oversized Trench Coat
Most of the people remember Carrie Bradshaw's signature look of the pink tank top and tutu skirt, but not many people remember the first time she appears in the show is wearing this oversized trench coat. As a trench coat lover, I can't help but thumbs up for this effortless and timeless ensemble. The show didn't include what Carrie was wearing underneath the trench so I took the liberty and paired a black jumpsuit for this style. But I'm sure a pair of Manolo Blahnik heels is happening south of her ankles.
2. Carrie's Parisian Style
We all know Carrie Bradshaw has a thing for Paris and hats. So we all applauded when she rocked this french country style dress with a beret to surprise Mr. Big after his trip to Paris. And we applauded again that she went to Mcdonald and got "french fries" wearing this outfit. 20 years later women around the world still emulate Parisian style for its effortlessness. The beret is especially on trend this year and if you're wondering how to include a beret into a spring summer outfit - voila - Carrie Bradshaw showed you 20 years ago.
3. Sam's Color Blocking
When it comes to color blocking, Sam is the best of the best. She is always wearing the brightest colors and never shy about putting two contrast colors together and make it work. This look, for example, Samantha is wearing a light blue shirt with a bright yellow skirt. It's bold yet fresh - just like summertime. Thinking about adding some pop of colors to your wardrobe? Copy Sam immidieatly!
4. Stripy Dress
Now, this style is just everywhere this summer. How Carrie outdid us here is that she carries a purple purse with this green stripy dress! Kelly green and purple are both absolutely trendy colors this season and placing them together is something I haven't imagined before.
5. SKY Blue By Carrie & Charlotte
Sky blue is my favorite color to wear in the summer - regardless if it's trendy or not. I think it makes me feel fresh like the ocean breeze. And I believe wearing cooling colors like blue also makes people around you feel refreshing. Maybe this is also the reason both Carrie and Charlotte is wearing sky blue during the hottest months in New York - the city needs some breathable colors.
6. Miranda's Basket Bag
You think basket bag is the new thing in Fashion? Well, check out what Miranda's carrying in 1998. And I think Miranda's bag looks even better than the ones we see today, such as the Cult Gaia ones. Instead of buying a trendy bag for hundreds of dollars, maybe we should ask Mom if she has an old basket in the attic we can borrow.
