If you are like us though, and still longing for an evening with Carrie and the girls, check out the imprint their styles still have on fashion today.
Carrie: The Trendy Writer
If Carrie is your ideal style maven then over-the-top accessories are for you. Carrie’s clever style, like many modern women, changes over time depending on where her career takes her.
She often epitomized the peak of runway fashion. However, she was also equally suited in a classic pencil skirt as her career took her from coffee shop column-writing to fashion contributor for Vogue.
Punch up a perfect pencil skirt like this one with a brightly colored blouse, stylish statement necklace and patterned pumps.
Adding a motorcycle jacket adds the edge factor and takes the look from day to evening.
Charlotte: The Polished Art Curator
Charlotte’s classic style was the perfect picture of the modern woman, demure and sleek. Fall 2012 is all about pops of color and mixing textures. But make no mistake, a trusted little black dress is always a key fashion asset.
Look for one with interesting details to put a modern spin on a classic style. This little number from New York & Company tops our list of wear-to-work dresses. The faux leather panel adds interest while the vertical lines provide a powerful slimming effect.
Pair with a bright belt and matching cardigan for a seamless look that can transition from day to evening.
Miranda showed us how to make the most of a clean, professional approach with her timeless take on the modern woman’s suit. Try balancing out perfectly cut, wide leg pants with a bright, jewel-toned blazer such as the green one seen here.
Add a coordinating scarf and forgo the briefcase for a textured bag like this houndstooth laptop bag to magnify your style.
Samantha: The Stunning Publicist
Samantha turned heads wherever she went, all while managing to keep her scorching style.
Take a fashion lesson from this Sex & the City siren and pair fall’s must-have modern faux leather pants with a functional blazer, bold statement necklace and heels with attitude – we love the snakeskin print accent on these pumps!
Lose the blazer after work and go effortlessly from the office to drinks with the girls.
Whether you are off to the coffee shop or the art gallery, the courthouse or the board room, the modern woman needs an individual style that can go all day (and night).
Add your own clever spin on these modern, quality pieces. By doing so, you can create a fall wardrobe worthy of the big screen.
