If there’s one woman on TV who has given us some serious style goals way before Instagram, it is Carrie Bradshaw aka Sarah Jessica Parker. Little wonder then that even some of the latest fashion trends today are a reflection of her closet from Sex and the City—a show that not only made us value our girlfriends but also taught us some unforgettable style lessons. Want to know what lessons we learnt from Carrie’s closet? Read on…
 

Mix your stripes up

Mix your stripes up

Yes, there’s a rulebook to wearing horizontal and vertical stripes. But every once in a while, scratch those rules and wear it all together à la Carrie here. Oh and that massive flower on the top might be a risky bet for many but not for a true blue fashionista like her!

 

Tutu skirts are whimsical

If we’ve learnt something from the opening song of Sex and the City, it is that nothing is more whimsical and feminine than a tutu skirt. Pair it with something basic and you’ll look straight out of a fairytale.

 

Heels can lighten up a dull day

Remember how Carrie had an enviable shoe closet? If you love your shoes as much as she did, you should know that heels can instantly glamorise just about any outfit. See how she teams her red pointies with an uber casual ensemble.

There’s hardly anything more girlie than ruffles, right? Carrie shows us that cold shoulder dresses with ruffles were in vogue back then and are in vogue even now. No arguments there!

 

Turbans are so chic

Turbans are so chic

If you thought turbans were topping the fashion charts only recently, take a look at Carrie looking stylish as ever in a turban teamed with a one-shouldered dress. When a bad hair day strikes, just wear a head turban. Are we right, Ms. Bradshaw?

 

Flared jeans

Tired of the same ol’ skinny jeans? Take style inspo from Carrie here! She wears her ankle-length flared jeans with panache and gives us good reason to pull out our old, frayed flared denims from our closet.
