Get The Carrie Bradshaw Look

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!)

Carrie Bradshaw in Paris

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!

Endless Rose Fringe Mini Dress (available at Shopbop), Wittner Rover Heels, Secret Shhh Minimal Infinity Necklace (available at Indooroopilly Shopping Centre), Michael Kors Blair Pave Watch (similar style here), Oroton Handbag (similar style here), Fossil Bracelet (similar style here), Royal Aquamarine Hepburn Sunglasses.

It’s been a very busy couple of weeks at The Blonde Silhouette HQ, but after a weekend of some much needed rest and relaxation, I’m back with black, wearing this new fringe mini dress from Shopbop. I love the playful movement seen in the tassels as they flutter in the gentle breeze of this spring sunset, it’s truly magical. If you haven’t already, incorporate fringing into your wardrobe, by means of a simple LBD, or the classic fringe miniskirt.

Of course, you may be momentarily distracted by the glistening sparkle of my new rose gold, Infinity Necklace from the new Minimal Collection at Secret Shhh. If like me you love delicate and dainty jewels, then you will adore the understated and sophisticated nature of the Minimal Collection, which highlights fine chains and statement pendants in gold, rose gold and silver metals. Of course this beautiful necklace is best teamed with a classic timepiece, like this Michael Kors Rose Gold Watch and bangle.

Now to make the most of this romantic sunset! x
