8 Of Carrie Bradshaw's Work-From-Home Outfits That I Can't Wait To Recreate

Sarah Jessica Parker's Sex And The City character is notorious for her splashy everyday style, and coveted accessories. But Carrie Bradshaw's work-from-home outfits are categorically one area of dress I've previously overlooked. With my sofa serving as my office for the foreseeable future, I've been searching for the motivation and inspiration for outfit ideas that while comfortable could be considered street-style appropriate, and the cult-classic television show seemed like a great place to start. Hardly one to settle for a sweatsuit and sneakers, the fictional '00s muse found clever ways to sport designer ensembles that are actually comfy.

During the show's six-season run, Bradshaw, who primarily works from the comfort of her New York apartment, can be seen sitting looking out her living room window, tapping on her clamshell laptop and pondering the realities of New York's dating scene. Though SJP's character was far from a homebody, she somehow mastered the art of easy (yet always fashion-forward) stay-at-home style. And considering a lot of Bradshaw's go-to pieces are currently making a comeback, I've found it easy to shop for styles to help recreate the looks.

From pinafore tops paired with Bermuda shorts to clog sandals and silk headscarves, the iconic character had a knack for risky styling that centers on two things: comfortable separates and elevated accessories. Styling them together, I'm cozy without feeling like I've written off my usual style completely. As I rewatch the series, Bradshaw's quirky ensembles for running errands and writing alike inspire me to have fun with my outfits again. In the current climate, they serve as a guide for those, like myself, looking to create solid outfits — even if it's just to sit at home.

Ahead I'm sharing eight of my favorite Carrie Bradshaw-approved work-from-home outfits, for a little inspiration.

Carrie dressed up a light spring overcoat with ornate wedge mules for a look that's effortlessly chic. The hair scarf has made a huge comeback on the Fall/Winter 2020 runways and it's arguably the piece that pulls it all together (it's also the perfect way to get out of styling your hair).

Perfect for days spent in the house, a silk-satin robe can be worn by itself, or layered over a cozy knit set. I plan on wearing mine with feathered slides.

A more pared-back look for Bradshaw, her tube top and carpenter pants are the epitome of early '00s style (see also: Bella Hadid). While Carrie more than likely wore high heels, it can just as easily be dressed down with chunky mules.

In the later seasons, Bradshaw gets comfortable in light apron-style dresses and trendy shoes — a combination that's meant for spring. Marni's clog sandals are a dead ringer for the pair SJP's character wore on the show.

As proven in the past, you can't go wrong with a skinny jeans and sweater outfit combination. Carrie Bradshaw's look confirms that if you find comfortable, yet presentable, trousers to pair with your favorite chunky-knit, the styling options are endless. For a playful lift, add a manageable kitten heel.

Carrie's billowy maxi dress is perfect for those that aren't really into slip dresses. Another sleeper style, the nightgown her character was seen sporting on more than one occasion is as comfortable as it looks.

I love the unconventional feel of this look in particular. I'll be wearing my own iteration when the temperature heats up, swapping the pumps for a trendy thong sandal to fully embrace the early 2000s.

Pairing a fitted camisole top with a slip skirt like Carrie Bradshaw is a foolproof way to be comfortably chic. Opting for a style in a metallic hue gives it an especially polished feel.
