5 At-Home Outfits Carrie Bradshaw Would Definitely Wear

Carrie Bradshaw's best comfortable outfits

Years ago when I moved to New York to pursue a job as a fashion editor, I often thought about Carrie Bradshaw and her path from newspaper columnist to fashion writer. I watched Sex and the City as much for the story line and the career aspiration as I did for the outfits, often reinterpreting them myself, whether it meant tracking down a vintage Dior Saddle Bag or a pair of strappy Manolos into my wardrobe.

While rewatching SATC at home during this time of social distancing, my perspective has shifted a bit. I now find myself identifying with Carrie as a writer working from a laptop in her living room, and it occurred to me how many great at-home outfits she wears throughout the series. She has a range of amazing cozy outfits crafted from closet basics like button-down shirts and leggings (which will further inspire how I’m wearing leggings at home) but also looks that feel a bit more dressed-up. Scroll on to see some of Carrie Bradshaw’s most iconic at-home looks that she would still wear today.

The work-from-home outfit:

The first rule I learned from Carrie Bradshaw's working-from-home looks? Stick to the basics. Here, she's wearing a simple nude camisole and her signature "Carrie" necklace—building-block pieces that work here but are endlessly versatile for a number of other outfits as well.

Shop the look:

This top looks practically identical to Carrie's.

I'd personally pair it with these boxers, borrowed from the men's section.

I'm living in these right now, and I'm sure Carrie would be as well.

Here's another work-from-home look, but this one takes that fashion factor up a few notches, all the while including pieces you probably have at home already. The key to this outfit is the oversize button-down shirt, which can be pulled off by wearing one a few sizes up.

Shop the look:

I found this one in the men's section at H&M.

The ultimate fan of high heels, Carrie would definitely be wearing these around the house.

Remember how Carrie always wore layered pearls?

I've personally been enjoying dressing up a bit at home, and Carrie would certainly throw on a dress for dinner in—nothing too over the top, but something comfortable and cool like this Reformation black minidress with shoulder pads.

She would 100% be into the chain jewlery trend.

And a pair of chain-link earrings to match.

Carrie loves a great slip dress, so it's no surprise that she owns an amazing lingerie version trimmed in pretty lace. I found a nearly identical one to pull off this exact look.

Shop the look:

This is practically the same exact thing Carrie is wearing.

I owned a horseshoe necklace back in the 2000s just because Carrie wore one.

Recently, leggings as pants have become a core part of my wardrobe, and I'm continuing to look for new ways to style them. It doesn't get easier than pairing slit leggings with a cozy long cardigan.
