Yep, we couldn’t mention the early ‘00s (or tutus) without mentioning Carrie Bradshaw. Brought to life by Sarah Jessica Parker and costume designer Patricia Field, Carrie was a bona fide fashionista (with her own personal style), hopeless romantic, and never one to say no to a cocktail after dinner. So, an outfit that’s equal parts fit for a princess and prepared to strut its stuff makes total sartorial sense.
Like Carrie’s sage green number, iconic outfits tend to accompany iconic moments (no Sex and the City spoilers, promise). And as for our own main-character moment? Well, the freedom to go all-out after so long spent inside.
Our version comes in a more wearable – and less ‘Sugar Plum Fairy’ – deep blue recycled polyester, in the perfect length for dancing (although you don’t need ballet training to wear this one). Pair with stilettos and a clutch bag à la Ms Bradshaw, or tough it up with chunky knitwear and boots for a modern nod to noughties chic. Whether it’s a trip to the Big Apple or a big birthday bash in the Cotswolds, this skirt will always ensure you’re the life of the party. (Keeping the cosmos on tap will help, too.)
