With the new season of SATC reboot And Just Like That… now on our screens, we remember the outfits that propelled Carrie Bradshaw and the hit tv show to iconic status

This is well and truly a Sex And the City summer.

Ahead of seeing how Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte navigate midlife, we celebrate the key fashion pieces that Sex and the City made famous and that you can buy now.

It’s Cosmos at the ready, as there’s much to celebrate for Sex and the City fans. Not only is it the 25th anniversary of the influential television series, it’s also the 15th anniversary of the first SATC film. And that’s before we even mention that the second season of HBO’s spinoff series And Just Like That… hits our screens this summer.

The eleven-episode series follows Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker), Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) and Charlotte (Kristin Davis) as they navigate life and friendship in NYC in their fifties, picking up where the last season left off. Though much talk is of Kim Cattrall’s cameo as the fourth original single girl Samantha, it’s the fashion that we’re here for.

Given the reputation of SATC – and its stars – as fashion icons and trendsetters, there is no doubt that And Just Like That… will feature show-stopping looks. After all, Sex and the City’s outfits remain some of TV’s most unforgettable, and the show’s impact on fashion can be felt to this day.

The silky slip dresses, tulle skirts and waistcoats that we all coveted when Carrie wore them in the original show are timeless. Indeed, a quarter of a century on, 90s and 00s fashion has come full circle, appearing once again on the runway and in our wardrobes. It seems we can’t get enough of SATC’s Y2K aesthetic.

Then again, it was Carrie Bradshaw that made Manolo Blahnik an established footwear name, and while the Fendi Baguette that she carried in Season 3 was already a popular item at the time, the Dior Saddle bag only became a cult item when she wore it that same season.

For her work on the original show, Patricia Field was credited with being the first stylist to create TV characters that had real style, combining realistic finds (Field bought the now-legendary opening credit tutu that Carrie wears for $5 in a downtown thrift store) with fantastical designer pieces – long before ‘high-low dressing’ was a concept.

Sex and the City not only reflected fashion trends, it set them, changing culture and concepts of style rules in the process. As we settle down to watch the second series of And Just Like That…, and raise our cocktails to the original television series and its spin-off films, we take a look back at some of the key fashion pieces that Carrie Bradshaw and Sex and the City propelled to iconic status.

And Just Like That… Season Two is on Max
