1. The tutu
One of the most iconic Carrie moments, the tutu dress took the fashionista from day to night, from series to series. Feminine, flirty and a little bit cheeky, the tulle movement remains prominent in the wardrobes of modern women who aren't afraid of a bit of a flirt.
2. Yes but where are your pants?
Sea-side or pool side, yes, anywhere else in public, no. Fashion greats have spent many seasons designing pieces which cover the booty so women don't have to wear short shorts anywhere but while on vacation. Carrie, and thousands of other women around the world, can wear shorts this short without being mortified, but that doesn't mean they should.
3. Colour blocking meets parachute
The puffed sleeve was a thing of pre-20th century but colour blocking is a thing of every century. Mary Katrantzou, Valentino and Chanel are holding onto the colour blocking concept like it's a fashion law and are the very reason an early Samantha is continuing to influence contemporary fashionistas. We wander how this would go down with Carrie's tutu?
4. The "it" bag
We're not sure if Carrie was sporting a new-season masterpiece or a grocery bag but either way the bold colour, slouchy aesthetic and over-sized convenience is standing the test of time. While the design has changed, the concept is still strong with sharp cuts, shorter handles and muted tones with gold designer lettering re-designing the contemporary it-bag. Carrie had the idea, modern fashion had the design skills.
5. Punk princess
Pearls and studs and pink and black, what is going on here Carrie? Whatever it is, it doesn't matter because it's fab. Nothing says fashionista like a bit of juxtaposition.
6. The bandana
When we think bandana (or head scarf) we think an Audrey Hepburn styled wardrobe, a classic car, a handsome man in the driver's seat and the wind blowing in our hair. Not quite ghetto gospel in Brooklyn. Perhaps Carrie has just come from said car date?
7. The exclusive bridal party
Since when do bridesmaids not have be coherent? Since Sex and the City in 2008 obviously. Carrie perfectly defined the girls, by not defining their bridesmaid dresses and giving them the creativity and poise to have their own role and own sense of sophistication on her weeding day – while it lasted. After all, not every bridesmaid is the same.
