Pearl necklace became extreme choker in this wacky accessory moment FYI, this is apparently when Carrie was wearing Aidan's engagement ring around her neck too: The definitive guide to dressing like the women from Sex and the City How to recreate the wardrobes of Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda and Samantha By Jessica Davis Jun 6, 20 years ago today, Sex and the City first appeared on our screens and changed our wardrobes forever. Yellow and black? Although SATC was not the first TV series to have a focus on fashion, the show's costume designer, Patricia Field, created characters — and this was particularly the case with Carrie — with unmistakable signature style. Her ensembles would always be finished off with an elegant pair of pearl earrings or some chic sunglasses. The neighbors become enamored with Carrie and ask her to do a twirl. A rare midriff-baring moment from early-in-the-series Miranda: And that time Samantha's headscarf could double as a blanket: So, she got caught smoking weed in the streets instead. Think again. No one will ever do a fur coat justice the way Carrie Bradshaw can. Her fur coat, tutu, heels, and bold accessories became a staple to her style and ultimately defined an era. So we're beyond thrilled to report that there's a nascent Sex and the City Instagram account cataloging every single style moment from the groundbreaking series with some seriously funny commentary , so that we don't have to break into our complete DVD collection to relive some of this foursome's most epic sartorial highlights.
