One of the most iconic female characters on the air — Carrie Bradshaw. Thanks to the creative mind of Patricia Field, Carrie Bradshaw has made a lasting imprint in the world of fashion. Her looks are bold and tasteful, standing out from the typical standards of fashion. 

A big part of what made Carrie Bradshaw’s looks stand out wasn’t just the clothes themselves but the ability for Bradshaw to wear them with confidence. The clothes didn’t wear her, she wore the clothes. 

Here are some pieces that Bradshaw styled on the show during the fall and winter months to bring some flair to your outfits this season.

Arguably, one of Bradshaw’s most iconic looks. Fur coats are a great way to stay warm as the weather gets colder while looking debonair.

One of the easiest ways to make a statement in the fall and winter is to find coats with unique patterns and textures. Patchwork coats add a very abstract, textual spin to an outfit, as darker colors are usually the focal point around this time of year.

Plaid coats are another simple way to incorporate some colors and patterns into your look. They create a sense of sophistication, giving you a very distinguished appearance. 


Blazers are a great staple to have in your wardrobe. They can be buttoned for a sleek look like Bradshaw or thrown over some jeans, business pants, or even sweats, elevating any look.  

Heeled Knee-High Boots

If you’re looking for a bold and sexy addition to an outfit, these shoes are it. Heeled knee-high boots are very tasteful and eye-catching while managing to keep you warm. They can be styled with dresses or jeans and are a must to add to your closet.


“I’ve spent $40,000 on shoes and I have no place to live? I will literally be the old woman who lived in her shoes.” Other than finding her Mr. Big, there was nothing more important to Carrie Bradshaw than her shoes, more specifically her heels. Heels bring life to any outfit and are a necessary staple to have this fall and winter for a night out or just to bring some life to an everyday outfit. 

Mittens and Hand Muffs

Just because it’s cold doesn’t mean you can’t accessorize with your outerwear. Mittens can be easily coordinated with the color scheme of your outfit as Bradshaw accomplished, or you could also use a hand muff for a more poised look. 

Berets and Paperboy Hats

Although not the warmest choices, hats are a simple way to bring character to your look. The cherry on top. 

Frilly Dresses

When it was time to get fancy, Bradshaw never shied away from the chance to make a statement. She always went bigger and bolder. Big frilly dresses create a grand look that is sure to make you feel like a princess. 


Clutches are an easy way to accessorize while avoiding the bulkiness of your average purse. You can use them to add a pop of color or to simply tie a look together. 


Scarves seem to be taking over the outerwear game this fall, and Bradshaw hit it right on the nose. A timeless piece of outerwear that can complement your look.
