Important question: Does the internet need yet another article about Carrie Bradshaw's style? Maybe not, but here's why I think we need to talk about her just one more time: I believe that Carrie was leading the charge for a tonne of trends 13 years (and more) ago and that these predicted some of the biggest looks for 2018. Now, you could say that fashion is cyclical and that the outfits she was wearing then have just come back around again. But some of the pieces she was wearing then were kind of niche (e.g., naked shoes) and weren't as big back then. However, many of her signature pieces are all the rage now. If you're a massive fan of Sex and the City and can't get enough of Carrie Bradshaw's style (hi, everyone), then I suggest you keep scrolling to see all the trends she predicted and where to shop key pieces now.
#1: Transparent Shoes
Style Notes: Back when this episode first aired in the late '90s (the one where Carrie says to Big, "Your girl is lovely, Hubble." If you know, then you know), all eyes were on that knockout dress. But now we're all about those transparent, "naked" shoes.
Style Notes: Call this an extension of our love for the slip dress, but the strappy dress (whether loose or body-con; midi or maxi) has been one of our favourite looks of 2018. Not only has it been a staple for the summer, but also we'll be layering a roll-neck underneath for the coming months.
Style Notes: Okay, okay, this trend isn't exactly groundbreaking. But this trick of knotting your knitwear didn't come back until the end of last year, with both Olivia Palermo and Alexa Chung doing this look. We've also seen it on a lot of bloggers recently (case in point), but Carrie was doing it way back when.
Style Notes: We'd be lying if we said we weren't jealous when Alexander Petrovsky gave Carrie that pink Oscar de la Renta dress. While we don't all have artist boyfriends who are willing to buy us such extravagant gowns, the ultra-pretty princess dress is still a must for any wardrobe, even if you're just going to dance in McDonald's wearing it.
