Carrie Bradshaw Walks Into a Zara—Here's What She Buys

When Carrie Bradshaw walks into a bar, she orders a Cosmopolitan. When Carrie Bradshaw walks into a Zara, she buys the most statement-making pieces available. At least that’s what we can assume based on her iconic Sex and the City wardrobe. We’ve written plenty of stories highlighting and semi-obsessing over everything in Carrie’s closet, but if you’re a true SATC fan, you really can never get enough. From re-creating exact looks to taking inspiration from her aesthetic as a whole, we never really stop learning from her wonky yet reliably chic style choices. Today, we’re taking that mindset into one of our favorite affordable retailers: Zara.

Ahead, we rounded up some classic Carrie Bradshaw images from the show and shopped out Zara items that mimic the overall vibe she gives off in each. The images ahead include tulle tube tops, crystal cocktail dresses, baby tanks, and more. Thanks to the overwhelming stock of ’80s-inspired dresses pieces currently being sold at the retailer, we had a lot to choose from. Between the hot pink belted minidress and the bright blue lace-up stilettos, this just might be our best Carrie-inspired Zara haul yet. 

We love a sheer top, but the sleeve detailing is what’s got me adding this to my cart. 

DIY scarf-top without the hassle of tying it yourself. 

This may be black, but it’s anything but boring.

This skirt has me weak in the knees. 

The subtle way to add a little sparkle to your look.

Consider your GNO (girls’ night out) look figured out. Hint: It includes this top.


Just because these heels are clear doesn’t mean you can’t see the style they impart.

Summer-ready with a bold hue. 

Small in size but big in effect. 

Sometimes it’s the simplest dresses that become our instant favorites. 

I’m obsessed with these, and that’s not an understatement. 

Pair this with a slip skirt and strappy sandals and you’re ready to be on your own episode of SATC. 

No such thing as too much sequin.

The ’80s called, and they’re ready for you. 

For when you want a more structured ensemble, but still some pizazz.

Now here’s a top that’ll get people talking. 

The perfect basic to go with all the statement-pieces in this roundup. 

Carrie Bradshaw wore hot pink heels, so then I wore hot pink heels. 

Now that’s a handbag. 

Everything from the perfect hue to the high-waisted detailing looks so expensive.

Because I know you were probably eyeing these sandals in the look above.  Next up, shop the trendiest items under $50 at Amazon.
