And just like that, the fashion that graced our screen in the nineties has returned and is so relevant today. I will never forget about a quote I learned in university, speaking to the fact that we move forward by looking always looking back, and with fashion, there’s no difference.
Carrie Bradshaw was a fashion icon in the Sex and the City franchise and still is. Today we’re looking back in awe of some of her most fabulous looks, from past up until present.
A Carrie Bradshaw lookbook:
Rocking a cute little tutu skirt
This is an outfit from Sex and the City’s first season, when Carrie was just introduced. A tutu is something so simple and easy to find in stores, but takes absolute courage to pull off. Tulle is such a trend at the moment, and every designer has jumped on the bandwagon. This midi length is not the only way to wear it, you could opt for longer, full length or just by the knee, it all depends on your body type and preference.

Big, bold and beautiful
There is nothing sexier than a woman in a big, bold print. Bradshaw wears a figure-hugging strappy dress that flaunts all her curves in just the right places. Paired with just a simple pendant necklace, this bold print trend is all the hype in fashion at the moment. Again, this look is dependent on your preference. Go for a print that suits your personality. Don’t be afraid to be bold, like Carrie.

The cover up
Summer season is here! Sometimes you don’t want to show it all, but still be comfortable in your two-piece swimsuit. Carrie stuns in a gold shimmer cover-up which is an ultimate showstopper piece. This will turn heads by the poolside and on the beach. This is a great garment choice for events like festivals or beach parties. You don’t have to opt for such an elaborate design, there are other more muted options which are more versatile.
