“Sex and the City” has launched scores of fashion trends, from nameplate necklaces to ginormous flower pins, and the second movie, out May 27, will likely cause the same frenzy among women who want to be Carrie Bradshaw. The movie’s costume designer, Patricia Field, told MarieClaire.com she thinks clover leaf necklaces, which Carrie wears in the new film, could become the next SATC-inspired craze. Pat’s selling a variation of the necklace at her store, but click through for some less ostentatious options. Keep reading »

Some film stills from the “Sex and the City” sequel are out, and we’ve been staring at the gang’s style to figure out how we feel about it. Is it realistic? Aspirational? Bold? Completely rooted in fantasy but totally entertaining? And which looks will influence fashion trends (because that’s inevitable)?
For the new look of 40-something Carrie, costume designer Patricia Field and Sarah Jessica Parker wanted to portray a different side of the fashion-fanatic character. Director Michael Patrick King explained that the first images released of Carrie (remember that glam white dress with the sunglasses?) were intentionally styled: “This one is about evolution. They — Pat and Sarah Jessica — wanted to pick a simple, clean, American line. It’s a vintage piece of Halston, which is fancied up with those crazy gold sunglasses. They wanted to show Carrie’s grown-upness. All the girls have hands-on feelings about their clothes.”
When looking at their wardrobes, we have a hard time deciding whether the “SATC” characters represent something fun and inspirational for the image of 40-somethings (will grown women follow their lead?), or if they remain in the realm of laughable entertainment and fiction.

Carrie Bradshaw and the gang have come a loooong way since the first season of “Sex and the City” premiered on HBO in 1998. That first episode — with its interstitial voiceovers from minor characters, which thankfully didn’t make it out of the first season, unfortunate hair, sometimes wacky outfits and Carrie chain-smoking in her studio apartment — is what made America fall in love with Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda. These were four single women living, working, loving and partying in the playground of New York City. We could have been like them. They were a version of us with cooler jobs and a seemingly endless capacity to wear four inch heels, but we could aspiringly relate to them. But now, things are different. Read more … Keep reading »
