The Carrie Bradshaw Capsule: 9 Summer Outfits, Each Under £100 Total

While scrolling through the endless trove of Sex and the City paparazzi and still images recently, I found myself thinking that Carrie Bradshaw's summer style resonates more than ever now. She was the epitome of the late '90s/early 2000s fashion girl, and seeing as that's the way many 2019 fashion girls aspire to dress, I'm here to make it a little easier on you all.

Another fun thing that I did recently was create a budget capsule wardrobe of 14 outfits, each under £100 and often using the same pieces, which probably sounds impossible, but I like a challenge. And that brings me back to SATC. If you want to look cool this summer with very little effort, all you really need to do is dress like Carrie Bradshaw. (You'll see what I mean below). Since you're probably saving up for a summer vacation or perhaps those amazing boots you saw on the A/W 19 runways, why not do it on the cheap? Below, peruse Carrie Bradshaw's summer style and shop everything you need to create nine under-£100 outfits to see you through until September…

Another Bradshaw-approved trend that's back is long shorts. She wore them well.

It was always apparent that Bradshaw put plenty of thought into her casual outfits too.
