The One Trend Carrie Bradshaw Would Never Wear in 2018

Recently, I got to thinking about Carrie Bradshaw’s iconic style and the pieces she would wear today in 2018. After all, many of the items she wore in the 2000s—like her Dior saddle bag, PVC shoes, and strappy sandals—are again relevant today with trends from the early aughts making a comeback on the fashion scene in a huge way. But what wouldn’t she wear? It seems there’s actually a clear answer to that question.

When recently asked about what it would be like to style Sex and the City today, Patricia Fields told Man Repeller, “If I were styling Carrie Bradshaw in 2018, I really feel like it would be more of the same—entertaining, aspirational, positive. Definitely not normcore.” And this doesn’t surprise us at all. While normcore fashion celebrates casual everyday basics, Carrie liked to live on the opposite end of the spectrum. But we have a sneaking suspicion that Miranda Hobbes would wear normcore pieces in 2018. Ahead, we’re breaking down why.
