Get The Look: Carrie Bradshaw in The Carrie Diaries

I think the world of fashion television would definitely crown Carrie Bradshaw their fashion queen, both during Sex & The City & of course more recently, The Carrie Diaries. The styling on The Carrie Diaries is the genius of Eric Daman, who was responsible for all those fabulous outfit creations we saw on Gossip Girl. Normally eighties fashion on television or in film seems to be done in a way that makes it obviously appear dated & at times daggy. On The Carrie Diaries however the styling so far appears fashion forward with a touch of modern elegance whilst still paying homage to the decade.

AnnaSophia Robb herself has said in interviews that a lot of the clothing featured throughout the show has come from stores like H&M & TopShop. Seeing as her character does have a rather amazing wardrobe on the show I thought it'd be fun to try recreating Carrie inspired outfits myself.  All of these clothes are from TopShop so you can recreate these looks yourself!

Snapshots of Carrie's fashion so far.




Those sunglasses remind me so much of the ones Carrie inherited from her Mother's closet during the first episode. The spot jumper is also very 'Carrie', she does love her patterned knitwear!

Love this look!



This is the outfit I can imagine Carrie wearing to go to her internship in New York City. That dress is so beautiful & the bag could easily be splattered with nail polish if you want to channel the Carrie Bradshaw of 1984. Yes, the shoes are Louboutins but I couldn't resist paying homage to modern day Carrie as well.


I hope you've enjoyed this post! I did have fun playing stylist & will probably do more of these types of posts in the future.


♥ Right now I am loving this song by Adele. If you haven't heard her first album already jump on Spotify to have a listen. Definitely do this if it's raining again today.
