How Carrie Bradshaw changed fashion

Can you believe it’s been 17 years since Sex and the City first aired on our televisions? As inspiration to thousands and thousands of women around the world, Charlotte, Miranda, Samantha and Carrie paved the way to a fashion revolution. 

Sex and the City was one of the first shows to portray women in their own form. Feminine, masculine, sexy, fun – you name it, they did it!

Carrie Bradshaw, played by Sarah Jessica Parker was paramount in starting multiple fashion crazes around the world. Carrie’s fashion boundaries were limitless and some of her outfits definitely made you cringe, yet with her quirky sense of fashion and her obsession with shoes she always pulled it off and her sense of style became a huge feature of the series!

Here are some of our very favourite Carrie Bradshaw trends which the fashion world ate up:
