As the four inseparable bachelorettes sauntered around New York, sharing intimate stories and seeking out advice from one another, there was certainly no shortage of trendsetting, extravagant outfits to drool over! Patricia Field, who worked as a costume designer and stylist for the shows six seasons, told Racked that she views style as a way of telling a story about “who you are and what you’re doing that day – put yourself on a stage…” This bold fashion philosophy can no doubt be seen in the iconic looks Field put together for Carrie!

It’s been 12 years since the final episode of ‘Sex and the City’ aired, and yet we’re still head-over-heels in love with and inspired by Carrie’s dramatic, personal style. Field recently revealed that it was her goal to ensure that Carrie’s looks were always original, stating, “Whatever she’s wearing has to be completely original to the last in time.”

The romantic comedy series featured the four different women in an attempt to tackle issues about sexuality, femininity and individuality. Along with their totally different styles, the four best friends, through their different personalities, represented the importance of female friendships and the individual viewpoints women can hold, in what has since been heralded as a celebration of female empowerment! *Love*
