Unexpected Date-Night Looks Carrie Bradshaw Would Approve Of

Carrie Bradshaw is our eternal sartorial crush—and for good reason. The Sex and the City heroine is never afraid to take risks, serving up a plethora of looks that range from polished to quirky while staying true to her unique signature style. She certainly never holds back when it comes to evening ensembles and is the master of combining pieces we’d normally never put together for a fun and daring result. To help you step up your game, we’ve created three fantastic ensembles inspired by the inimitable New Yorker to try this season. Whether you’re heading to a holiday soiree with friends or grabbing drinks with your SO, these outfits are sure to stop everyone in their tracks.


Carrie-Worthy Outfits

Carrie loves to incorporate lingerie-inspired pieces, making the slip a staple in her closet (remember the "naked dress"?). A gorgeous printed kimono robe complements and elevates a boudoir piece. An embellished bag and satin mules are the perfect evening accessories.

It's not a Carrie Bradshaw moment without a tulle skirt. This embroidered midi is elegant and festive. Pair with a bodysuit to streamline the silhouette and top off with a crisp blazer. A glitzy clutch and barely there sandals complete the ensemble.

Never one to stray from bold color, Carrie loves a jewel-toned dress. Slouchy boots are a great alternative to stilettos and a color-blocked top-handle carryall adds dimension.
