Sex and the City-90s fashion-wearable now?

I've noticed some fellow bloggers have been inspired by 90s fashion recently-this got me to thinking, well this was only 10 years ago in SATC terms and I was intrigued to see what the girls were wearing back then. Knowing particularly how stylish Carrie was and still is, I've shown some pictures of the girls and I personally feel that some, if not all of her outfits could be worn now, 10 years later-or at least give some style inspiration for now!! What do you think?
So 90's-so now? I love leggings anyway!

I love this fuschia dress!!

Cute capri pants!!

I love this floral dress-particularly the length-just different from wearing above the knee which seems to be so in for the past few years

I love this outfit-this looks timeless to me-a classic chic look for any era!

Another outfit that I feel is timeless too!

All good picks. I love the red jacket in the first photo.

I am not too keen on shoulder pads or over size suit jackets. Miranda's style was the most horrible during this time of SATC. But Charlotte was always prim and pretty, Samantha always oozed sex appeal and of course Carrie was the inventive creative chic woman we all know and love! Great article and photos!! :)

Sharon Rose said...

Hi Wendy-yes, its really vibrant and looks great with the leggings!!

Hi fashion chalet-Yes, I certainly agree that Carries style from the start was the most inventive, stylish and chicest! As you say, Samantha is sexy in style, Charlotte pretty and Miranda I think, just took a long while to get going in the fashion and style stakes! Some of her other outfits are not so bad though!!

Always In Style said...

Golly - that first picture is soooooo 90s! I like the look you picked of Carrie in the brown leather jacket and pleated skirt -- kinda 70s but totally timeless.

Sharon Rose said...

Hi always in style-yes I totally agree-this outfit really rocks!

MadameDior said...

i think most of Carrie's outfit's are wearable now =] Samanthata and Charlotte's style has always stayed true whereas Carrie and Miranda's outfits have developed over the years which is a positive thing of course! great picks!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi madamedior-yes, I think you're right and I think Carries style is generally timeless, too.

pammish said...

its been 10yrs?? *shocked* haha :)
im liking the last pic, i dont know why :)

CoutureCarrie said...

Though the 90s SATC looks aren't my personal fave, they are definitely coming back . . . the shoulder-padded red jacket and the conservative knife-pleat skirt, in particular. Btw, would love to trade links - just added you to my blogroll! xoxo CC

Eleh said...

carrie's floral dress is perfect. (even when it's worn with flats)

Sharon Rose said...

Hi Pammish-yes, a long time!!its a cute look-thanks a lot!!

Hi couturecarrie-I'm loving Carries look and think even back then her styles look timeless-I'll be adding you too-thanks!!

Hi eleh-yes I totally agree-thanks!!

Secretista said...

Just one thing to say... shoulder pads will NEVER come back in style. HAHA!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi secretista-never say never-haha!!

CoutureCarrie said...

Hi again - thanks for the add! Also, just wanted to tell you that you have been tagged :)

Sharon Rose said...

Hi couturecarrie-loved your rocks post and did comment on your post that I did this on Friday-thanks anyway!!

* Fashion Dreamer * said...

Just goes to show, SATC is always in style! It's so surprising to see those looks and how relevant they are now

Sharon Rose said...

Hi fashion dreamer-yes, too true, there isn't many tv shows can lay claim to that even now!

Ida said...

My lovely Sharon, you've just described it so precisely - Carrie's style is timeless. I really can't think of all the outfits of hers that I have seen and that haven't been an inspiration to me. Same goes for SJP actually.

Cait said...

no matter what they always had style in every decade.

another ellie said...

You found some great pics from the show.

Ladybird said...

Fun post! I agree with you on most of the comments ;) By the way, I have tagged you in this musical thing...you'll find it on my blog ;)

bi-style said...

I love Carrie's style she was always a style-icon!!!!!

Cheryl Lynn said...

I'm not all that in for the shoulder pads, but the color of the jacket it poppin'. Most of the other looks are pretty timeless, since fashion has regressed through all the major decades, 90's, 80's, 70's, 60's mod, 50''s,
40's, etc. I think I like the last two looks on Carrie because they are so feminine and pretty. In spite of certain designers pushing a more masculine look for women, as far as I'm concerned, feminine will never go out of style.

Great post.

Cheryl Lynn said...

I had to tell you, you look so beautiful in the 1950's vintage dress and the Marc Jacobs Silk Tea Dress.

Stunning!

Runaway Gallery said...

thats so funny that you wrote this because i'm watching old sex and the city right now and its some of the first episodes and i'm getting some great ideas. great post!

Dapper Kid said...

Carrie's clothing is always timeless, you could so pull off so many of her looks! Totally adore the floral dress and the last look!!

Siljesfashion said...

I think all her vintage outfits are very wearable. I find myself going back only to be inspired all over again by this fab series. Great post Sharon!! Loving the flower dresses and the yellow skirt.

B said...

I like her floral dress - very cute. And also her mustard-yellow skirt.

Nay'Chelle said...

Great pics! I definately think some 90's looks can translate to now.

Fashion Is Poison said...

the red blazer is a great piece, but without the shoulder pads

Sharon Rose said...

Hi cheryl lynn-I sure will-have a lovely weekend!!

Cate said...

i love the 90s. in the 90s, i wasn't directly fashion-concious, but i lived in the 90s and i loved the lifestyle and wanted to be like all the in-people i saw on TV - and i think it's so interesting to see the 90s in retrospect. because i LIVED in the 90s, it is even more interesting for me to read what people write about the 90s than, say, the 40s, because i wasn't born then.

Sharon Rose said...

Hi Cate-I feel like that about the 80s, as that was the decade I went to partys and discos and had fun! I loved the fashion scene back then too!

yiqin; said...

I always admired Miranda for daring to be herself. She is always firm on her stands & on what she wants! I feel that anything is wearable, how you wear it is more important!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi Yiqin-this last comment is exactly right-thanks so much!!

p said...

the outfits from SATC have been permanently imprinted, burned and emblazoned into my mind. i feel that style is always timeless, what with the wheels of fashion turning. i say, there are no rules, no such thing as following fads blindly, and about what suits you.

therein, you really blossom.

take for instance, carrie's character. no doubt she's styled ingeniously by fields, but it suits the persona of her character, and no matter how outrageous some of the outfits are, they look perfect on her.

whether it's 90s, 80s, 30s, 20s. .. if you're feeling it, go for it!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi p-you've a real insight of style and I'm a great admirer of you and your blog-thanks for your lovely comment!

Fifi Flowers said...

timeless is best... classic can last FOREVER! always back to basic!

Adamgv said...

I think a better plot for the story would be all the girls get rich like in the show "Roseanne". BUt instead of just wasting the money, they help people like the homeless.

Catherine Ashley Talks fashion said...

great pick!

i love the last picture on SJA. it is a really really nice dress/skirt with lovely prints on it!

xoxo

Jen (MahaloFashion) said...

I've never been a big fan of early 90s fashion, it's not me. Carrie though can do no wrong.

Sharon Rose said...

Hi fifi flowers-thanks for stopping by my blog and yes, I couldn't agree more!!

Hi adamgv-thanks for stopping by and for your comment too!

Hi catherine ashley talks fashion-thanks so much and I too love the last one-so timeless!


Hi jen-oh, I agree about Carrie-she's a true style inspiration!!

Fashion Splash said...

apart from the last one, i think all outfits could be easily worn now! great researching for the pics!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi fashion splash-thanks for that and for stopping by my blog too!!

soph said...

Mmm great post! I think Miranda definately had the worst clothes back then, and the worst haircuts! And even the worst boyfriends! I just remember the scene where she sees some ex-boyfriend who broke her heart ( Eric or something I think) and she hides behind a lampost, she is wearing this horrible anorak!! Poor Miranda!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi soph-yes, I agree about miranda-such a shame-haha!!
