Recreate Outfits From Sex & The City Reboot's First Look With Us!

By Anubha Das

Updated - Aug. 27, 2021 6 min read

And just like that, we got our first look into the lives of our favourite ladies in their 30s as they navigated life in NYC, and now in their 50s as they cope with newer (but still drama-filled) concerns. Whether you were a Carrie, Miranda, or Charlotte fan (unfortunately, our personal favourite, Samantha, isn't in the remake), they all had a distinct aesthetic that we want to emulate, reboot or no reboot. After all, didn't we all want to run around NYC in a pink tutu?

Read on to know how to recreate their outfits from the remake at an affordable price (absolutely no Manolos or Dior bags here, we promise.)

 

Carrie Bradshaw

 

Carrie Bradshaw's style is fun, flirtatious, and, well, expensive, and she is perhaps the series' biggest fashion idol. She made tutus famous, converted Mr Big's walk-of-shame shirt into a shirt dress ensemble, and she's still the first person you see in the remake.

Let's check out some of her classic closet picks!

 

1. Flying Machine White Tee From Myntra

 

Price @ INR 539

 

A piece you may already have in your closet but can never have too many of, SJP's outfit features a basic white t-shirt that's easy to layer or wear on its own.

2. Fable Street Checked Pencil Skirt with Box Pleats From Ajio

 

Price @ INR 1,140

 

Carrie has tucked her white tee into our favourite skirt length (midi, of course), and while this one lacks the corset-esque waist detailing and is short, it also lacks the $200 price tag and has an excellent fit.

3. H&M Women White & Brown Striped Oversized Cotton Shirt From Myntra

 

Price @ INR 1,299

 

Remember how Carrie dressed a white shirt from Mr Big's wardrobe with a belt and made it work? We're guessing that same shirt made a reappearance for this look, but we've seen white shirts layered with tops and dresses in a more modern style.

4. Ayesha Short Necklace with Beads From Ajio

 

Price @ INR 399

 

Beaded necklaces, which are kind of tacky and cute, have been all over Instagram recently, so Carrie had to be wearing one, too. Her blue necklace gives a pop of colour to the otherwise monochrome ensemble, making it appear younger and more contemporary.

5. Marc Loire Women Black Solid Pumps From Myntra

 

Price @ INR 983

 

Other than $40,000 richer, where would Carrie be if she didn't have her shoe addiction? Young girls generally wear Mary Janes, but the (very) high heels and triple buckle give them a more mature and sophisticated style. Fun fact, the Celine ones SJP is wearing cost $970! The ones we propose have a more manageable heel and are more inexpensive. If you're a shoe fanatic like Carrie, you'll love these heels she'd rock in an Indian remake.

Miranda Hobbes

 

Is it just us, or does Miranda always seem to receive the worst plots? As depicted by Cynthia Nixon, Miranda was angry, cynical, and compassionate (and also the only one who displayed any common sense, sorry not sorry.) Her style was understated, and we're digging the androgynous path her outfit is taking in the remake.

 

1. OUTRYT Women Satin Shirt From Ajio

 

Price @ INR 1,299

 

While Miranda's dress has a checkered design (and costs approximately $1800), we think this satin one with a comparable neckline and colour is a good alternative.

2. Zola Ankle Length Flared Palazzo From Ajio

 

Price @ INR 797

 

Miranda agrees that skinny jeans are no longer fashionable. Her blouse is coupled with white slacks, which we can't suggest highly enough (unless you're really clumsy) because they match with everything. Because they're high-waisted, they're also quite flattering.

3. Invictus Women Off-White Solid Pumps From Myntra

 

Price @ INR 1,079

 

Miranda's heels are Manolos, white and classy. Yours can be from Invictus, white and classy. We have good experience with shoes from Invictus being comfy and easy to walk in, and they last a really long time. Plus, we consider white shoes an investment.

4. BERRYPECKERS Quilted Sling Bag with Chain Strap From Ajio

 

Price @ INR 640

 

You've certainly seen the green version of this bag all over Instagram (it's a favourite of influencers), but we love it just as much in white. While Miranda wears hers as a clutch, we appreciate the versatility of this BERRYPECKERS bag, which allows us to wear it on our shoulders as well.

Charlotte York Goldenblatt

 

We admire Charlotte's optimism and connect to her hopeless romantic nature since she is traditional, courteous, and conservative. Her style is feminine, elegant, and ageless, and she is unquestionably the face of Chanel.

 

1. La Zoire Women Black & White Polka Dot Printed Top From Myntra

 

Price @ INR 601

 

Charlotte is played by Kristin Davis, who is preppy and traditional, and her polka dot top and clothing, which is more black than white, is a stark contrast to Miranda's, much like their personas. The shirt we chose has a high neck, long sleeves, and a button closure (Charlotte wore a lot of them), and it will go well with a skirt or jeans.

2. N-GAL Back Slit Pencil Skirt From Ajio

 

Price @ INR 599

 

If there's one person on the show who probably owns a pencil skirt in every colour, it has to be art gallery-going Charlotte. A black one is a good option for people like us, though, since it goes with literally everything.

3. KLEIO Black Textured Sling Bag From Myntra

 

Price @ INR 867

 

Charlotte is wearing a black Lady Dior that we couldn't ask you to purchase if we tried. Instead, we like this sling, which has a similar form and will go just as well with your outfit.

4. Allen Solly Women Black & Olive Green Floral Print Pumps From Myntra

 

Price @ INR 2,499

 

Is there anything on this woman's body that isn't designer? Charlotte's flowery heels are from Prada, and they serve to give a pop of colour without being too much. After all, Charlotte could never be accused of making a fashion faux pas, right? With this Allen Solly selection, we're suggesting a brand to you.
