SJP Basically Had Our Current Dream Wardrobe in 1986

For children of the '90s, Sex and the City will always be a touchstone when it comes to clothes. The slip dresses! The fur coats! The slingbacks! The way Carrie wore a belt around her bare waist and what looked like a crown of thorns around her bun (that one definitely required a slightly more open mind), and the way Samantha wore fuchsia trouser suits with clip-on earrings!

There are Instagram accounts dedicated to the wardrobes of the famous foursome—@everyoutfitonsatc is full of Carrie-isms like, "My relationship is at a standstill so instead I'm evolving my look"—not to mention flourishes on the A/W runways that looked straight out of Patricia Field's style playbook. Toga's collection featured brooches pinned delicately at the throat and clustered on the lapels. It reminded me of Carrie's first foray into the Vogue office in a pinstriped suit with a paste brooch on her collar.
