Fashion from Sex and the City

The Sex and the City movie was greatly anticipated after the show ended its reign on HBO. Sex and the City is inspiring for numerous reasons. First, both the show and the movie gave audiences a taste of New York City lifestyle that many find intriguing. (Even if it’s not the most realistic portrayal!) Second, each of the four friends has her own personality and style, so we can all find at least one girl we can relate to!

The movie is centered around Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) and her wedding to the infamous Mr. Big. From wedding bells to baby plans to relationship turmoil, Sex and the City will keep your eyes glued to the screen!

I will review each major character’s style, including some must-have items inspired by the characters.

1. Carrie Bradshaw

Carrie from Sex and the City

Carrie is the protagonist the audience loves to watch because her mannerisms are quirky and girly. She is known for her open writing style, addiction to designer shoes, and her on-again/off-again smoking habits.

Her outfits frequently mix high-end “splurge” items with vintage/”save” items, and always have a pop of color or an interesting texture. I also noticed that Carrie’s wardrobe in the movie also had a floral motif! Here are my favorite Carrie-inspired items:

2. Samantha Jones

Samantha Jones from Sex and the City

Samantha Jones is everyone’s favorite sexually promiscuous gal pal. Her style is a refection of her “man eating” and fun-loving ways: full of sex appeal and figure-flattering pieces.

In the film, Samantha had two signature colors: canary yellow and a brick/orange red. However, throughout the show Samantha wore a variety of bright hues. Here are my favorite Sam-inspired items:

3. Charlotte York


Charlotte is the most conservative of the four friends. Throughout the series, she is struggling with the desire to have a baby, and in the movie, some exciting things happen that bring her closer to her dream.

Charlotte’s style is very classic and polished. She isn’t ever flashy, but her femininity and her detailed-to-perfection accents make her style my personal favorite! Here are some Charlotte-inspired items:

4. Miranda Hobbes

Sex and the City - Miranda

Miranda is the fiery red head who reminds me of the type of friend who would have your back in any troublesome situation. Miranda is the queen of separates, which comes from her working wardrobe. However, her nighttime looks often include an interesting pattern or print. Here are my favorite Miranda-inspired items:

  1. So I’ve been told by a few people that I’m a Carrie, simply because I love to write and am not afraid to put what I think in print. Style wise…I’m not so sure. Maybe a cross between Carrie and Charlotte 🙂

  2. Really glad you guys finally put up a SATC post. I’m definitely inspired by Carrie’s style more than any of the other ladies.

    Carrie always wears unexpected and at times whimsical outfits. Sometimes impractical, but she is always up for trying something new.
