Sex And The City delivered some of the most iconic fashion moments in TV history. Can you believe it’s been 17 years since the show ended? As the popular 90s show gears up for a reboot, we couldn’t help but wonder if Carrie and the girls (sans Samantha) will recreate the same sartorial magic.
“And Just Like That” is the title of SATC’s 10-episode comeback. Carrie, Charlotte, and Miranda will now be in their 50s, and we’re just so excited for the styling possibilities to come. Here, we look back at fashion choices that would still slay in 2021.
The fabric dyeing technique skyrocketed into prominence and became the lockdown uniform for many loungewear lovers. Come 2021, it’s time to elevate the look à la Carrie with 90s capris, bandanas, and of course stilettos.
Miranda Hobbes (or even Cynthia Nixon) is a true supporter of gender equality and fashion as means of self-expression with her plethora of smart suits. In 2021, we are no longer borrowing from men — our outfits are now genderless and coveted by men themselves.
Take cue from Miranda’s ‘stop using plastic bags’ cloth bag to remind yourself that recycle, reduce, and reuse is the mantra for the year ahead.
Done and dusted with power suits — we are stepping into 2021 with skirt suits. Sharp, feminine and suitable for ‘drinks at Vogue’, invest in tailored pieces inspired by your favourite writer.
If there is one character that doesn’t shy away from wearing bold hues, it’s Samantha Jones. And when it comes to neons, the brighter the better. While Samantha might be absent from the new season, there is no reason for you to skip that pop of parrot green or bubblegum pink in your spring wardrobe.
3D embellished flowers
With spring in our step, we can’t help but wonder how to incorporate flowers into our wardrobes. Are wispy 3D florals the way to go or should we opt for oversized floral prints? Carrie with her wide gamut of choices from a delicate flower bomber jacket to a bold D&G printed dress, is definitely no help.
Tighten your corsets and slip into your satin gloves as Victorian elements make a comeback courtesy Netflix’s period drama ‘Bridgerton’. Take cue from SATC on how to imbibe these elements into a modern-day wardrobe.
Much before we embraced crop tops with an underwire-cut, Carrie was out there casually showing her modified shirt and bra combination and extremely chiselled abs. Shop for the risque trend or simply innovate like Carrie.
