I Created Carrie Bradshaw's Under-$100 Capsule Wardrobe for Fall


Rex Features

First of all, who doesn't need a little Carrie Bradshaw in their lives (and wardrobes)? Whether she's flaunting her insane designer handbag collection or wearing an actual bird on her head (see the first movie), there's really nothing she can't pull off in her signature "Oh, this old thing?" style. It may have been 20 years since Sex and the City first aired, but the show is still one we watch reruns of just for its witty commentary and truly iconic fashion. It only takes one look at the viral Instagram account @everyoutfitonsatc—which does exactly what it suggests: chronicle every noteworthy fashion moment from the show—to remember Carrie's best (and occasionally cringe-worthy) outfits.

Although everyone had a field day with the show's summer style, it's Carrie's fall outfits are equally noteworthy but far less appreciated. Since she inadvertently predicted some of the biggest 2018 trends in the game over a decade early, so many of her fall outfits feel just as relevant today. Remember when she styled a strong-shouldered blazer or took a risk and wore a pair of cargo pants with her mules? I not only revisited her best fall looks, but I also created a Carrie capsule wardrobe of her key pieces. If Carrie herself could actually budget, she'd be all over the following under-$100 pieces.
