A key part of girlhood is figuring out which Sex and The City character you are. Do you walk on the wild side like Samantha, or wear rose tinted glasses like Charlotte?

Are you a free spirited Carrie or an ambitious and analytical Miranda? The iconic series first aired in 1998 and altered the trajectory of TV styling forever. From putting Manolo Blahnik’s on the map to cementing Fendi’s baguette as the ultimate it-bag, Sex and The City is single handedly responsible for some of the most memorable sartorial moments to ever grace our screens. In celebration of the upcoming reboot series And Just Like That (which has recently been renewed for a third season), we’ve curated some sustainable outfits for each of the four women that tread a little more gently on the planet while still hitting all those style notes.

Carrie Bradshaw

Carrie, the show’s main protagonist, has gone down in fashion history for her eclectic approach to dressing. Known for mixing whimsical and feminine elements with unexpected accessories, her genre-hopping approach is instantly recognisable. She’s the woman who made a tank top and tutu (which costume designer Patricia Field found in a clearance bin) undeniably chic. The John Galliano for Christian Dior newspaper dress, which first appeared in season 3 and made a comeback in And Just Like That, sold a few years ago for over €15,000 at auction. Whether in a bias cut dress or tube top and cargo pants, Carrie wore it and she wore it well.

Del Villar Abstract Dress Cloud: evoke Carrie’s infamous ‘naked dress’ and 90s minimalism.

Brie Leon Everyday Mini Baguette Gold: a micro style picking up where Fendi’s baguette left off.

Saint Silk Scarf Top: let your decolletage steal the show with this tube top a la Carrie.

Charlotte York

Charlotte York

With ‘90s preppy’ and ‘old money’ coming back into vogue, Charlotte York’s Upper East Side style is more relevant than ever. Known for her traditional values, polite personality and optimistic outlook, Charlotte’s wardrobe was similarly prim and polished. An early adopter of the coquette aesthetic, Charlotte leaned heavily into demure dresses, country club-ready cardigans, tweed jackets and pearls. Conservative yet timeless, Charlotte’s wardrobe epitomised Park Avenue’s prestigious reputation. Channel the waspy former art dealer’s wardrobe with pretty floral dresses, stylish suiting and classic accessories.

Van Der Kooij Camellia Volume Sleeve Maxi Dress: a silk georgette dress with a full flounce skirt.

AGMES Juliette Earrings: these earrings combine Charlotte’s elegance with modern lines.

Brie Leon Paloma Mini Tote Bag: a go-to accessory for charity luncheons and exhibition openings.

Saint Silk Hair Tie: perfect for a post-run slicked back ponytail.

Miranda Hobbes

With the return to post-COVID office culture, workwear is making a re-entrance with corpcore. A Harvard Law School graduate and high-powered corporate lawyer, Miranda is partial to sharp tailoring, classic shirting and pencil skirts. Off duty, you’ll find her in chunky rollnecks, little black dresses and silk blouses. Embodying the understated essence of the quiet luxury movement, Miranda’s style may have been pared-back compared to the rest of the colourful cast, but it was a lesson in restraint. Make like Miranda in pleated pants, oversized blazers and carry-all totes.

Jillian Boustred Studio Blazer Dress: this blazer dress is a whole outfit, making it ideal for meetings.

Van Der Kooij Australia Silk Button Front Waist Coat: Miranda was a fan of vests. Elevate the look with this silk version.

Brie Leon Harlow Slouch Tote: a generously-sized everyday bag fit for essentials.

Samantha Jones

Although we unfortunately didn’t get to see Samantha for more than 73 seconds in the reboot, this character will never stop being utterly fabulous to us. Reflecting her larger-than-life, totally extra and unabashed personality, Samantha’s wardrobe is punctuated with bright colours, eye-catching metallics, low necklines, figure-skimming silhouettes and brilliant accessories. Extroverted, outspoken and unapologetically herself, Samantha and her wardrobe were the high-voltage heroes of Sex and The City. Call upon your inner party girl and embrace big boss energy with these sustainable Samantha Jones style cues.

Van Der Kooij Rhia Mini Dress: a mini dress with maximum impact.

ESSĒN The Strappy Sandal: slim, winding straps elegantly frame the feet.

Araks Maya Thong: crafted from lustrous silk charmeuse, it taps into Samantha’s sensuous side.

Released From Love Horseshoe Choker: a good luck necklace that snakes beautifully around the neck.
