Get The Carrie Bradshaw Look

Thursday, August 11th, 2016

Who could forget in the sixth and final season of Sex And The City when Carrie Bradshaw stepped out of a cab, and onto the streets of Paree dressed in the chicest, monochrome ensemble. Twelve years on, and that Carrie Bradshaw style remains timeless and sophisticated – and totally enviable to any aspiring fashionista. This post is totally dedicated to replicating Carrie’s Parisian Look – prendre plaisir (that’s french for enjoy!)

The Ensemble: Carrie debuts a classic, monochrome ensemble – perfect for the Parisian fashion scene. She boldly clashes stripe with stripe, as teams a horizontal striped knit with an opposing vertical striped midi skirt. Surprisingly, the combination of stripe prints really balance out against one another, creating the perfect asymmetrical statement.

The Accessories: One thing I love about Carrie is her eye for detail and killer accessories. Whether that involves a pair of Manolo Blahniks or a vintage purse – the girl knows how to accessorise! Carrie’s Parisian outfit involves pieces of a sophisticated and ladylike manner – a pair of leather gloves and a bolero hat. How very chic!

The New York Girl Sass: While you can take the girl out of New York, you can’t take New York out of the girl, especially when your still embracing a little NYC tradition. Throughout all six seasons, Carrie sips on her favourite beverage, a Cosmopolitan, while she dines with her squad. If you haven’t already – order yourself one the next time you are out and about – as they are quite delicious. And don’t forget the style bible, Carrie’s favourite glossy – Vogue!
