And Just Like That, Carrie Bradshaw is back on our screens, rocking her ever-glamorous designer threads and Manolo treads. Since the release of the latest Sex and the City spinoff, we couldn't help but wonder…how and where can we recreate Carrie's most iconic looks?

As die-hard fans of the series will know, Ms Bradshaw is truly one of a kind. Her style is unique. Eye-catching. Think bold prints, tulle, bright colours and timeless florals! It's so recognisable that we've even learnt how to spot a frock the curly-haired writer would love.

So to celebrate the return of our favourite New Yorker, we've rounded up the best SATC looks that would still work today, and we've even found some great lookalikes from the high street. Grab a cosmo, sit back, get scrolling and most importantly, get Carried away…

There is no question about it, Carrie made tutus work mainstream, not just in the ballet class. From the opening credits of Sex and the City to her final scenes in Paris, the star rocks tulle with ease.

The silk slip

Not many could wear a silk slip dress, but The New York Star columnist makes us all want to give it a go. After seeing Big with his new fiancée Natasha outside the Plaza, her white silky number was all kinds of glam and showed her ex exactly what he was missing.

The newspaper dress

We think the John Galliano for Christian Dior newspaper dress symbolises SATC and this frock has to be one of Carrie's most famous outfits. It's modern, yet slightly Avant-Garde without being overwhelming.

Carrie's magical Versace 'Mille Feuille' gown was a breathtaking style, and it seemed such a shame to waste it waiting for Alexander Petrovsky to come home from his boring exhibit...

The floral frock of dreams

Carrie always looked blooming gorgeous in anything that features fleurs and this stunning white and red peplum number from the first movie was a standout style we can't forget.

When Carrie fell into the pond whilst dodging Big's kiss, we screamed thinking of this beautiful chiffon creation getting all wet! It's almost criminal…

The bustle

OK, this isn't strictly a dress, but we had to put it in! Carrie's Vivienne Westwood bustle skirt is such a party piece and shows that even when Carrie wears something that looks pretty simple, it never really is.

The corsage

And for extra points, Carrie made corsages the must-have accessory, and thanks to the new series, they're making a comeback!
