Carrie Bradshaw's style, like many peoples', became more experimental heading into warmer weather. The sun and heat can bring out the most confident and daring of looks, and her outfit output during New York's hot and sticky summers was about as wild as they get: Combining rather "extra" pieces (like feathered headbands and tartan miniskirts) alongside unexpected sporty items was a trademark CB patented many years before the street style set.
Wearing strappy heels with everything—even the weirdest or most casual of getups—was her norm. No accessory was an accessory too far, and odd color combinations (such as lime green and candy pink) were all too easy for her to pull off.
At the time of airing, the case of Sex and the City's closets were what we aspired to have but didn't necessarily feel confident enough to copy ad nauseam. However, it would appear now that the summer of 2019 is bringing out the inner Carrie in many a woman we admire. When Italian designer and It girl Gilda Ambrosio combined a fluoro pink tennis skirt with lace-up heels and a flannel lumberjack shirt, it set this train of thought into motion. However, as I looked a little deeper on the feeds of Instagram, I could see Bradshaw's kooky influence all over.
From pink tutus—like the one she so famously wore in the opening credits—to the kind of lingerie-as-daywear combinations only the leader of the pack could pull off, she is clearly the driving force behind many new outfits, whether this crowd realizes it or not. Keep scrolling to see what I mean.
