Sex And The City Reboot: How Will New York’s ‘It’ Girls Dress in 2021

Will Carrie still be hoarding Manolo’s or will she convert into a sneakerhead in her 50’s? I couldn’t help but wonder, 23 years, six seasons, and two movies later, how will New York’s favourite girls dress in 2021? Are we going to see Miranda in the big-fits from The Row or genderless suiting from Gucci? Is Charlotte going to dress like a sexy-chic gallerist in sheath dresses from Chloé and Ralph Lauren or will she further tap into her feminine-floral side by wearing pieces from Rodarte and Erdem?

After years of ‘Will they? Won’t they?’, Sara Jessica Parker, along with Cynthia Nixon and Kristen Davis announced the news of the spin-off on their Instagram accounts. While the others are busy speculating the plotline, true SATC fans are putting together mood-boards, predicting their sartorial sense in the current fashion climate. Joining in on our fashion predictions are fellow Sex and The City loyalists from the industry, sharing their vision board of how the character’s styles have evolved over the years.

Sex and the City will always be known for turning shoe designers like Jimmy Choo, Christian Louboutin and, of course, Manolo, into household names. It will be interesting to see what the show will be bringing to the table with their new season. I personally feel we will see more realism on screen, characters will be leaning towards minimalistic looks, with key over the top elements. Athleisure and loungewear will be on top of their game.  With the whole conversation about being more serious towards mindful fashion, it will be interesting to see how they play with these ideas. Some brands/designers that might be seen on the show are Balenciaga, Amina Muaddi, Paco Rabanne, and Prada. We will see a lot of romantic day dresses and designers masks, for sure! Popular patterns like tie and dye will make an appearance. Genderless garments, sustainable fashion, bold neons are some front running trends that we might spot. The show will give the fashion world a chance again to remind the audience of the satisfaction and happiness that fashion can give.”

Divya Khadye, Fashion Influencer 
Sex and The City in a post-quarantine era will definitely be about ‘loungewear but fashion’. Their WFH Style would be something like muscle tee with shoulder pads, slit leggings or bike shorts, cropped blazer and a maxi dress, satin slip dress and a matching cardi. Their quarantine style will definitely be OTT, think bedazzled masks, silky PJs with feather trimmings, boudoir-inspired dresses, luxe tracksuits. For those walks and coffee runs, expect influencer off-duty style: might trade the iconic tulle skirt for a sporty tennis skirt, mini bags/ coin purses/ baguette bags, atm accessories such as monogram bucket hats, waist cinchers/harness, embellished hairpins and headgears.”

Devki Bhatt, Celebrity Stylist 

“As much as I am going to miss Kim Catrall and her audacious character of Samantha, I cannot wait to see what sartorial surprises and rule-breakers SJP has in store for us in form of Carrie Bradshaw. Honestly, the show has always been beyond its time and I don’t expect it to be any different this time around. Carrie redefines fashion but on her own terms. Her style has always screamed a sense of individuality along with revolution. I would love to see her in pieces from a brand that has revolutionised fashion this year, Area. The label explores fashion and culture in synchronicity, which is exactly what Carrie represents.”
