Tempting Tuesday-How To a SATC Fashionista

Though I'm not a huge SATC fan, I am a HUGE fan of the fashions. Especially Carrie & Charlotte.
Something about Carrie's (Sarah Jessica Parker) bohemian style and Charlotte's (Kristin Davis) preppy style, Samantha's (Kim Cattrall) sexy cougar style, and Miranda's (Cynthia Nix) CEO career look calls to me.

Sex in the City has turned the 4 HBO stars into fashion icons. Here are a few trends the show has started that are still running strong.

  • Stilettos
  • Must-have designer bags
  • Great coats
  • The bob
  • Flower pins
  • Initial necklaces
  • Designer wedding chic

While I would love to look like them...I need to face facts. I never will. I know they have a very talented crew  and I, alas, have an untalented crew of one. Me.

But it really isn't to hard to adapt some of the style and looks they wear.
One key point of the SATC look is their mix and match approach using key designer pieces with regular everyday pieces.
Carrie often pairs something outrageous and foofy with plain.
Or wear something in a totally different manner then it was meant.

Shoes are a BIG deal. Toss those flip flops ladies...the higher the heel the better.
Higher heels equals longer sleeker legs. And don't forget the manicures.
The woman of SATC would never be caught dead not looking PERFECT!

The Clothing. Now to be a true SATC fashionista you have to be on top of the trends if not slightly ahead. Seriously.
You have to follow the rags, mags, and shows.

Brands that are SATC.

  • Manolo Blahnik
  • Richard Tyler
  • Jimmy Choo
  • Dolce & Gabbana
  • Fendi
  • Dior
  • Blumarine
  • Chanel
  • Chloe
  • Prada
  • Roberto Cavalli

So be prepared to spend some serious CHA-CHING!! However, many of your mall level brands are pulling the look together for little the price.
  • Bebe
  • Banana Republic
  • Alight.com
  • Twenty-One
  • eBay
  • Zappos.com

So there you go my pretties. Your guide to looking like you just stepped off the set of SATC.
