Carrie Bradshaw’s Best Outfits Featured With SS15 Collections.

Over the last few weeks I had some how managed to convince my boyfriend to watch every episode of Sex and the City from start to finish. That way when we watch the movies together he understand it (chuckles). As we watched the seasons together, and bicker about Aidan vs Big, I realised just how far Carrie Bradshaw’s fashion evolved from Season One to the Finale Episode and how extravagant it become in the SATC movies. Her casual lounge wear to her vintage Dior and Chanel always took on a twist of her quirky clothing combinations and infinite love for fashion. And might I add her obsession with PVC circa 90’s mules and strappy sandals! One of the most stylish female leads ever to be on television, Carrie Bradshaw single handily changed the face of high end brands and made quite a few items in her closet world famous. *cough* Manolo Something Blue *cough*

Now, I’m all about the extravagant and eccentric looks but there are quite a few outfits through out the beginning of SATC that I love. Her unique combinations weren’t always over the top high end label shouting but just in general stylish and fun. I think a lot of women today look at Carrie and only see “labels” and expensive clothing. There was a time when Miss Bradshaw would wear David Bowie t-shirts and lounge pants not only while she wrote her articles but even a night out on the town.

There aren’t enough ways to describe Carrie Bradshaw’s impeccable, risk-taking flair. So here are a few of my favourite Carrie outfits, from casual to high end, through out the Seasons. What would Carrie wear if she had to pick from the designers and clothing that are featured online for SS15? I decided to take the time and be creative and recreated her looks with Spring/Summer 2015 clothing only! Some turned out to be very difficult to recreate with limited options from the latest collections but I managed to put together a few looks that I believe are accustom to Carries personality and style.

 

Famous Fur Coat – Look One

– faithful to her coat since day one, she kept it through out the seasons and wore it on the finale episode.

Opera Drama

– you never know who you might run into at the Opera. This outfit was exceptionally difficult to re construct as the dress Carrie is wearing is impossible to duplicate, but I believe I’ve come up with an outfit with enough fringe and feathers for Carries taste (and look smokin for when she runs into Big).

Tamara Mellon, fringed woven and crepe dress – $1,695
Simone Rocha, black satin feather trimmed wristlet clutch – $645
Christian Louboutin, riri 100mm suede pumps – $965

Grunge Carrie

– one of my favourite casual looks during the beginning of SATC, Carries grunge days. Classic tee paired with tartan and jazzed up with some heels, you can’t go wrong.

Carrie Bradshaw Grunge

H&M, sleeveless top – $19.95
MCQ by Alexander McQueen, tiger tartan print jean – £157.50

Jimmy Choo, lang patent-leather sandals – $850
Gucci, vintage web monogrammed canvas – $1,189
Ray-Ban, aviator metal sunglasses – $150

Lounge Wear

– another lounge look I enjoy and I thought Carrie seems like a Stella knickers of the week kind of gal, paired with a classic rock tee no girl can go wrong with that.

Carrie Bradshaw SS15

 

Forever 21, the rolling stones graphic tee – $21.90
Stella McCartney, knickers of the week set of seven briefs – $195

Dusty Pink Turtleneck

– something all women should have in their closet, a casual turtleneck. Picked to cater to a pair of heels I know Carrie would love since they feature one of her favourite materials, PVC!

Isabel Marant, andy embroidered-silk mini skirt – $585
Christian Louboutin, sweet charity painted python shoulder bag – $2,995

Michael Michael Kors, giraffe print dress – £140.69
Givenchy, nadia sandals in red leather – $750
Fendi, sequin baguette bag – $3,500

Dolce & Gabbana Undies

– another outfit very hard to create with this seasons spring summer collections, Dolce & Gabbana runway attire for Miss Carrie Bradshaw. I decided to be creative and not pick anything from D&G SS15 collection as that seemed to easy.

Carrie Bradshaw Underwear

Michael Lo Sordo, washed silk-satin trench coat – $810
La Perla, up date strapless contour bra – $150
Agent Provocateur, czarinah brief – $490
Saint Laurent, jane leather sandals – $795

Dolce & Gabbana Dress

– and how could anyone possibly find a floral dress similar to D&G in this seasons collections. So I thought I would put my own twist on a look and pick a floor length dress exceptional enough for Carrie paired with strappy sandals with of course PVC details.

Carrie Floral Dress

Mary Katrantzou, cassandra dress – £1,604.57
Tamara Mellon, frontline metallic leather and PVC sandals – $595

Cédric Charlier, two-tone pleated crepe midi skirt – $1,295

Put a Belt on It

– how can anyone pull of this outfit other then Carrie. Nothing quite like her palm leaf print skirt and knitted clutch attired with a belt around her waist. If your looking for an outfit much more on point with hers I suggest a button up dress shirt cropped and tucked under your bra and to browse a local charity/vintage shop for a printed skirt and knitted clutch.

  1. Very creative outfits and I think you captured Carries personality very well. I also enjoy her outfits that show more her style then just labels.

  2. I like how you’ve shown SS15 pieces that she might wear today. I can see her wearing a lot of the things you’ve picked out. Especially love the shoes. Also love that you got your boyfriend to watch the episodes with you, wish I could convince mine to watch them.

  3. Your creativity with different designers instead of just the main stream ones most blogs focus on is a great refreshing read. Charlotte Olympia, Isabel Marant and Mary Katrantzou are perfect spring 2015 designers to pick from and really suit Carries style. Could be more affordable looks, but I understand what you’ve created with current designer collections.
