By now, even the few (unlucky) people who haven’t watched the show know who Carrie Bradshaw, Samantha Jones, Miranda Hobbes, and Charlotte York are. They are the personification of the vivid palette of sexy, strong, and emotional, showing you how to find your own Mr. Big, define your own favorite shoes, or handle your own business.
Accessorize like an NY girl
In an age of effortless everything, these ladies look nothing of the sort, and in the best possible way. The way Carrie always pulls off the strangest item as the next best add-on for your everyday ensemble, such as a massive flower, just goes to show you how much creativity even the tiniest of details require.
In addition to the flower attached neatly to your shirt, the two key pieces of accessories that ruled the SATC show were (drumroll, please) shoes, and of course, bags! Even though they never lacked the sense of choosing their baubles, the duo of footwear and handy purses prevailed. Learn to choose a quirky baguette, and always have your go-to Manolo Blahniks for a high-end anything, and you’ll soon feel like a SATC girl yourself.
Treat your taste-buds
We’ve seen the gals exercise together, and not to mention Miranda’s courageous marathon preparations in Central Park, but despite their fit figures, they are known to enjoy a delicious treat every now and then. Certain foods and sips have even earned global fame due to their recurrence in the show, and if there was ever a premonition of the now beloved brunch, it would be this impeccable foursome!
Thanks to the show, the Cosmo soared straight to stardom as every girl’s best booze choice, especially considering its cranberry pink hue. Then you have Carrie’s adored moment of fast-food cravings when she walked into McDonald’s in a lush Oscar de la Renta dress – fancy clothes don’t require a fancy meal, but if you do want one, you damn well have the right to indulge in a Magnolia cupcake, or some frozen yoghurt!
Celebrate your sexuality
If it’s in the title, then it should serve as a pretty powerful hint as to the major aspect of the show. Sex plays a pivotal part in the show’s plot, and as such, it’s a peek into the many shades of female sexuality. It touches on many issues that modern women deal with, from romance and intimacy, orgasms, all the way to masturbation. Yes, while there’s so much emphasis on the actual intercourse, the show also embraces the idea of playfulness, on your own, or with your partner.
Ever since the show started airing, the popularity of using adult toys skyrocketed as a result of their continuous effort to present sex and self-pleasing as natural and beautiful. Remember when even the romantic and conservative Charlotte went nuts over a vibrator? The show helps remove the stigma and empower women to discover all shades of their sexuality.
Liberate your locks
We’ve all had that “I need to change my hair” moment when we face a change in our lives, or when we feel as if everything has become stale and monotonous. Carrie, alongside her trio of girlfriends, has made quite a few changes to her hairstyle, inspired both by the new men in her life, and her own inner emotional states. The woman has basically patented the effortless waves as her best look of all, the natural one she learned how to tame and make the most of even on the worst of days.
Then again, she looked stunning with cropped hair, as well as highlights, and the updos for those special occasions also got plenty of attention. The key takeaway from you might be to find a way to enjoy your natural hair texture, but not to steer away from experimenting whenever you feel the need to!
Master your own beauty
Aside from outfits, delicious eats, and the never-ending chase for the next best pair of heels, the ladies certainly knew their way around their beauty kits. Much like with the other segments of their lives, they all showed different preferences in the beauty department, with a common theme of being authentic, and making even pastels pop – just look at Charlotte’s immaculate skin, and sometimes her lack of prominent hues can be as powerful as Sam’s color-blocking.
Several looks and tips that did, however, stand out, included the smoky eye made timeless, the Brazilian wax, and the no-go for those chemical peels at home just before an important event. Samantha’s red lip and a dash of mascara, however, should be on everyone’s must-have lists!
