Carrie Bradshaw Was 20 Years Ahead of You—See the Proof

Sarah Jessica Parker's Carrie Bradshaw is considered a fashion icon in the truest sense of the word. Sex and the City stylist Patricia Field did an unforgettable job dressing one of television's most beloved characters—in fact, many of the looks Carrie wore ended up predicting the future of fashion in an overwhelmingly accurate way.

We recently binge-watched a few seasons of the show, and we noticed a number of current-day fashion trends on Carrie, way back in the late '90s and early aughts. From lucite footwear to the still-relevant lampshading trend, Carrie did it all way before it was cool. And for that, we bow down once again at the altar of Ms. Bradshaw.

Keep scrolling to see seven trends Carrie Bradshaw wore 20 years ahead of us all!
