When Carrie Bradshaw walks into a bar, she orders a Cosmopolitan. When Carrie Bradshaw walks into a Zara, she buys the most statement-making pieces available. At least that’s what we can assume based on her iconic Sex and the City wardrobe. We’ve written plenty of stories highlighting and semi-obsessing over everything in Carrie’s closet, but if you’re a true SATC fan, you really can never get enough. From re-creating exact looks to taking inspiration from her aesthetic as a whole, we never really stop learning from her wonky yet reliably chic style choices. Today, we’re taking that mindset into one of our favorite affordable retailers: Zara.
Ahead, we rounded up some classic Carrie Bradshaw images from the show and shopped out Zara items that mimic the overall vibe she gives off in each. The images ahead include tulle tube tops, crystal cocktail dresses, baby tanks, and more. Thanks to the overwhelming stock of '80s-inspired dresses pieces currently being sold at the retailer, we had a lot to choose from. Between the hot pink belted minidress and the bright blue lace-up stilettos, this just might be our best Carrie-inspired Zara haul yet.
