While scrolling through the endless trove of Sex and the Citypaparazzi and still images recently, I found myself thinking that Carrie Bradshaw's summer style resonates more than ever now. She was the epitome of the late '90s/early 2000s fashion girl, and seeing as that's the way many 2019 fashion girls aspire to dress, I'm here to make it a little easier on you all.
Another fun thing that I did recently was create a budget capsule wardrobe of 14 outfits, each under $150, which probably sounds impossible, but I like a challenge. And that brings me back to SATC. If you want to look cool this summer with very little effort, all you really need to do is dress like Carrie Bradshaw. (You'll see what I mean below). Since you're probably saving up for a summer vacation or perhaps those amazing boots you saw on the F/W 19 runways, why not do it on the cheap? Below, peruse Carrie Bradshaw's summer style and shop everything you need to create nine under-$150 outfits (approximately—I did my best) to see you through until Labor Day.

Carrie Bradshaw was always a fan of minidresses with statement accessories.
