What She Wears: Carrie

Let the SATC2 fashion show begin. Carrie Bradshaw and her fashion obsessed friends are sure to inspire our wardrobes again with the second Sex and the City movie.

Here at WhatSheWears.ie, we love Carrie from Sex and the City’s OTT, sometimes cookie style.

From the first movie we have her to thank for the statement corsages, tutus, name necklaces and the Carrie Bradshaw Horseshoe Pendant to Manolo shoes, which are now a household name.

Here are two of the outfits featured in the SATC2 movie and how to get the look yourself, without breaking the bank.

SJP’s white jersey dress in SATC2 movie.

The little white dress is back for summer and with the hype around the SATC2 movie, it’s not surprising then, that Carries white jersey Halston Heritage dress sold out on Netaporter (€273.41).

To get the Carrie Bradshaw look, you can add your name to the waiting list and hope for the best,  or you could make a dash for your nearest New Look for a similar, yet sleeveless version (£12, €14) .

SJPs Gold Aviators

The MYKITA & Bernhard Willhelm’s gold aviators SJP wears on the poster are available over at Net-A-Porter (£245), but they’re limited edition, so you’d better hurry!  The metal-frame gold-tone aviator-style sunglasses are described as “the definition of sporty-luxe”.

Otherwise, reach for the numerous gold aviator sunglasses you’ll find on the high street, such as Topshop (£15, €18).

Carries gold shoes in SATC2

Shoe designer Giuseppe Zanotti sent 26 pairs of his shoes to the SATC2 set, and his gold 80’s style on Carrie, pictured, got a lot of the attention thus far.

If your budget can’t stretch to the zany Zanotti prices, Asos will sort you out with a pair of gold stilettos (£35, €41).

For a gold clutch similar to Carries, head to Dune (£45, €53).

Carrie’s peach one shoulder dress

The peach off-the-shoulder kaftan dress sold out this month (surprise surprise) and is also by Halston Heritage, the company which Sarah Jessica Parker invested $25 million of her own money into.

And although it’s not a one shouldered dress, there’s a gorgeous blush coloured dress in River Island that would easily stand in, if you were really trying to pull off this look (turban aside!).

Fear not though dear readers, as New Look have the almost identical looking caged sandals in nude pink (£20, €24) to the ones that Carrie wore with her peach dress in SATC2.

Let’s face is girls, this is like Bond movies for girls, and we can’t wait for the action to begin!
