It’s easy to look at Carrie Bradshaw’s style and place it distinctly in the past—like her Christian Dior newspaper dress plucked from the spring 2000 collection or the Fendi Baguette, a style debuted in 1997. But for many Sex and the City fans, the freelance journalist’s style is timeless, likely because it was distinctly her.
