Sarah Jessica Parker in Tracy Reese at the 2014 Art Of The Pixel Gala

Posted on September 18, 2014

She earned and deserves her rep as a fashionista, but we always had a problem with the fact that she essentially just kept on dressing like Carrie Bradshaw after Sex in the City ended. Sometimes it worked for her, but other times (many other times) she came off looking pretty silly because let’s face it, there was little about Carrie Bradshaw’s personal style that translated well to the real world. And as SJ got older, it became harder and harder for her to work a look that had been devised for a character well over a decade before.

What we like about this look is that it feels a bit like a more grownup version of the “NYC Fashion Pixie” persona that Carrie embodies. The full skirt with maribou trim, the slightly incongruous jacket and the high-end label item with a slightly ironic bent to it – it’s all pure Carrie, but it feels more practical and sedate somehow.

That doesn’t stop us from disliking the fanny pack and the way the skirt looks like a fortune teller’s tablecloth, but we appreciate what she was trying to go for here. It seems silly to say about an outfit like this, but there’s a relaxed and mature vibe underlining it that appeals to us.
