How to Dress Like Carrie, Miranda & Charlotte in "And Just Like That"
I am a massive fan of Sex and The City, and HBO just released a reboot of the show called And Just Like That. Don’t worry; I won’t give any spoilers if you haven’t seen it already!
Throughout the years, the Sex and The City TV show, the two subsequent movies, and now with And Just Like That, there has been a really big spotlight on fashion and what the girls are wearing.
For this tutorial, I’m going to do a bit of a style guide to the program and also put together some outfits inspired by Carrie, Miranda, and Charlotte in And Just Like That.
The absence of Patricia Field
One big thing to note about And Just Like That is that costume designer Patricia Field is not involved with this project. Instead, she's choosing to focus on her work on Emily in Paris.
Patricia Field was the costume designer throughout all the Sex and the City seasons and movies, and it was her influence that made the show known for its iconic fashion.
The costume designers for And Just Like That are Molly Rogers and Danny Santiago, who balance references to some of the most famous Sex and the City looks, while also updating the characters' outfits according to age and the current times.
Throwbacks to Sex and The City
There are some really fun throwbacks to some of the original costumes that Carrie wore in the series and the movies. For example, her iconic blue wedding shoes make an appearance.
She has been spotted with a bird on her head, like the infamous wedding bird.
One of her outfits in the very first episode features a large flower broach, and Carrie wore these large flowers all through season three.
Of course, there is a tulle skirt moment! It wouldn’t be Sex and The City without a tulle skirt.
There are a lot of luxury handbags - Charlotte here is wearing Dior and Louis Vuitton.
Carrie has been spotted wearing a Fendi baguette bag, which is a great call back to the original series.
On the subject of bags, massive tote bags seem to be a thing in this new series. Miranda is going back to study, so she’s wearing a lot of tote bags. I mean, she’s got to have something to carry her books in.
Plaid for Miranda
They’ve been dressing Miranda in a lot of plaid. Normally the plaid print is quite wide.
But sometimes she is really overloading on the plaid, like in this shot, she’s got the plaid on top, plaid on the bottom, and then with the plaid tablecloth. It’s a lot of plaid.
When I put together an outfit inspired by Miranda in And Just Like That, of course, it had to feature a plaid dress.
She’s been wearing a lot of browns, rusts, oranges, really autumnal tones, and a lot of flowing midi-dresses, maxi-dresses, and wide-leg trousers.
Miranda has a very elongated silhouette, so I popped on a brown leather belt, which goes really well with the color of the plaid.
Then, of course, a tote bag. It wouldn’t be a And Just Like That's Miranda without a tote bag!
Carrie's bohemian style
Carrie, as a character, has never been afraid to push fashion boundaries. She’s always been trying different aesthetics, mixing them together, often in the same outfit.
In this series, she’s got a very bohemian look, a lot of bohemian prints going on, and vibrant colors.
There has also been a lot of layering going on, for example, Charlotte wearing this simple white t-shirt underneath her nautical-themed dress or Carrie wearing this button-down under her dress.
Floral prints are also all over the costuming in this season. I can’t get over this matching moment that Charlotte has with her daughters.
I think that Lily’s Oscar de la Renta floral dress is my favorite dress that I’ve seen anybody wearing in this whole series.
I saw this dress in a store, and although it’s not the type of style I would usually go for, there was something that really drew me towards it. I just felt that it has an And Just Like That aura about it.
I also decided to take some inspiration from And Just Like That and layer a white t-shirt underneath. This is something that I wouldn’t have thought of actually if it wasn’t for this show.
Charlotte's 50s silhouette
For Charlotte in this series, they have been really pushing that classic 50s silhouette with a tight-fitting top and then a big poofy midi-length skirt.
I’ve also noticed that they’ve been putting her in a lot of puff-sleeved tops, a lot of ruffle tops; she’s got a lot going on in the top area.
Polka dots and tweed are two other things that Charlotte really loves.
For the next outfit, I decided to channel Charlotte in this new series and really go for that 50s silhouette. I’ve paired a plain white t-shirt with a pink sating skirt.
On my handbag, I decided to tie this polka dot scarf around just as a little homage to Charlotte’s love of polka dots.
