My Favorite Looks From Carrie Bradshaw & Signature Accessories
Since the time our favorite sitcoms aired such as The Jefferson's, Seinfeld, Girlfriends, Friends, Frasier, and so many more of these beloved shows have been passed through generations. Daughters, mothers, even grandmothers have all laughed, cried, and enjoyed the same iconic television series. HBO aired the pilot of a show in 1998 that would change the lives of women and girls forever. This show had fashion, friendship, romance, heartbreak, commentary that would never be forgotten, and a city that would be loved forever.
Sex And The City was the beginning of an unforgettable era.
Four Women...Carrie Bradshaw ( Sarah Jessica Parker), Samantha Jones
(Kim Cattrall), Charlotte York ( Kristin Davis), and Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon) graced our television screens portraying lives of women in New York City. Maintaining relationships with their busy work schedules, attending fabulous events and girls trips, while portraying what real friendships and girl power look like is Sex And The City!
I admire the show for a plethora of reasons, the friendship between the four women being one...the fashion...oh THE FASHION kept me and all other million viewers on our toes.
All four of the women had their own unique style but it was definitely Carrie's wardrobe that stole the show. It wasn't just Sarah Jessica Parker's (Carrie Bradshaw's) fun loose curly hair and sassy personality the audience adored...it was her wardrobe that became a staple of the HBO series.
This article is dedicated to not only all of my Sex And The City fans but also to Carrie Bradshaw and the rest of the cast for serving looks all six seasons.
Thank you Carrie Bradshaw for being one of my style icons next to my fabulous mother @TracyDesignMyLife and my writing inspiration.
Carrie's style embodied classy, sassy, yet sometimes a girly, frilly side, not to mention sexy, fun, spunky, and unique touches. From the looks that graced the streets of Carrie's playground...New York, to the Hollywood Hills in season 2, to her iconic tulle skirt taking on Paris in season 6. Through it all, I've chosen my favorite looks by the one and only Carrie Bradshaw.

1. The Iconic Intro
The look viewers first lay eyes on was the pink (bra-less) tank, white tulle skirt and strappy high heels during the series intro which remained the intro for all six seasons. Carries fluffy curls and bubbly yet sexy ensemble was the start of it all.
2. The Classic Fur
From season one to the first Sex And The City Feature Film, Carrie's lavish fur would become a staple in her wardrobe throughout the series. Whether it was at a baseball game, a stroll through the park, or a cold winters night...the fur would make appearance after appearance.
3. Vintage Gucci
No matter what the occasion, Carrie always dressed to impress. This sexy black mini was worn when Carrie meets her girlfriends at one of their spots in the city. Carrie pairs this look with a vintage Gucci bag, another statement piece throughout earlier seasons.
4. Boho Meets Cowboy Chic
In season two Carrie and her girls take a trip to the Hampton's where she runs into Mr. Big while in a different style of attire. This was personally one of my fav looks from Carrie.
5. Classic White Slip Dress
Carrie's style was a blend of sexy and chic!
This White Slip Dress portrays both! This look in season two episode eighteen embodies a huge turn of events following much suspense during season two but another look to go down in history with a famous quote stating nothing but facts.
6. The Naked Dress
Speaking of slips, let's not forget Carrie's famous "Naked dress" from season one. This was the dress Carrie is pictured in on the side of a bus for her column. Not only was it featured in the show, Sarah Jessica actually wore it on the Red carpet as well!
7. Pinstripe Power
Two of my all time favorite looks from Carrie was her blazer and trouser look worn with a classic crisp white heel, and the other was a pin striped pant suit. Both looks were featured in different seasons but were totally chic!
8. Shopping Bags As An Accessory
Not only does the fur strike again but the pink and cream snake skin boots are everything!!! Oh and who wouldn't want a Christian Dior shopping bag as their accessory of the day.
9. Signature Drink
Carrie's accessories weren't always related to clothing....If Carrie didn't have a cigarette or shopping bag in her hand...she had a Cosmo. A Cosmopolitan was the ladies signature drink throughout the show and movie franchise. Cheers ladies!
10. Pearls Darling
If you haven't caught on, Carrie has many signature staple pieces...her fur, Manolo Blahniks, Cosmos, Carrie Necklace, and pearls! From time to time Carrie would throw on a strand of pearl bracelets or layered pearl necklaces like shown below.
11. Manolo Blahnik
We learned many things about the lovely Carrie Bradshaw, but one thing we knew she couldn't live without were shoes! And her favorite were...Manolo Blahnik.
12. Knee Socks
As I went through my favorite looks, I noticed Carrie loved a good pair of knee socks, I mean who doesn't? This is where we see the preppy and even youthful/playful side of Carrie's style.
