“Sex in the Big City” is one of the most popular series in the world. The styles of its female characters have gone down in fashion history. Many of the trends set by Carrie Bradshaw and her friends are back in style again.
Fashion Trends from “Sex in the City”
One of the hottest trends of 2021, which Carrie Bradshaw started, are the heeled flip-flops. You can find a variety of this type of shoes on store shelves. We can choose from models on a stiletto heel, a stiletto heel or a stable, comfortable duckie
Very interesting are flip-flops with square noses, which were very popular in the nineties. Another proposal are models on a wooden stool resembling clogs. It is impossible not to mention the mule, or flip-flops with a built-in front.
When it comes to colors, the most universal are models in the color of flesh and black. They match most stylizations and go well with clothes kept in subdued shades, as well as those slightly more expressive. Fans of original shoes will certainly like silver, gold or pastel-coloured flip-flops
How to style this type of shoes? They can be matched with a wide-legged women’s suit or a flared maxi dress, for example. As they optically elongate your legs, you can pair them with skirts or ⅞” pants. Nothing prevents you from wearing the season’s most fashionable flip-flops with jeans and a T-shirt.
In the fifth episode of the second season of “Sex in the City” Carrie Bradshaw appears with a Saddle bag in her hand. It’s a bag from fashion house Dior that debuted on the runways for the spring/summer 2020 season. It’s a new version of the saddle-shaped bag that was popular in the 1990s. The creator of this cult accessory is John Galliano – the creative director of the French fashion house at that time
Saddle bag was eagerly worn by the world’s biggest stars, such as Beyonce and Paris Hilton. The semi-circular bag is extremely versatile and suits many different stylizations – be it casual or a bit more evening ones. We have both plain models, as well as ones decorated with fringes or hardware
Saddle bag not only looks great, but is also very capacious. You can easily put inside your wallet, keys, phone or a smaller bag. It is a perfect solution for all retro style lovers. You can combine it for example with a top, denim katana and pants or romantic maxi dress.
Thin shoulder straps and strappy sandals
Another trend started by Carrie Bradshaw is thin spaghetti straps. They look particularly attractive on form-fitting tops and tight mini dresses. At the end of the 1990s, it was popular among music and film stars of the time such as Hilary Duff and Sarah Michelle Gellar. Today, the trend is back in style
One of Carrie and Miranda’s favourite outfits in the third season of “Sex in the City” was the combination of a silk skirt with strappy sandals. This combination is perfect for all kinds of evening outings – be it for a drink, to the club or for a romantic date.
