Sex and the City Style on a Budget

Posted on 05/21/2010

Not enough dollars for Dior, but still want to dress like Carrie Bradshaw? With Sex and the City 2 hitting theaters soon, you may be inspired to ramp up your wardrobe. Even if you haven’t got the funds for big designers you can still have Sex and the City style on a budget.

A Flirty Dress - You won’t catch Carrie, or any of the Sex and the City 2 girls, hitting the town in sweats. Try out a flirty, fun dress instead. This Chambray Corset Dress from Victoria’s Secret comes in one of the season’s hottest fabrics, but it’s the price you’ll really love: It’s on clearance for $39.99!

Bold Accessories - The pros say establishing a Sex and the City wardrobe on a budget means glamming up basics with bold accessories. Check out the LL Bean Kennebunk Scarf for $19.95, or these gold aviators from G by Guess for $39.50. Make sure you try a scarf wrapped around your head like Carrie wears in the Sex and the City 2 trailer.

Knock-Off Shoes - Obviously, each member of the Sex and the City cast has a fabulous wardrobe of shoes. But not everyone can afford Manolo Blahniks! So instead of spending your monthly food budget on a pair of pumps, opt for knockoffs. These silver, crystal-embellished satin uppers from RSVP resemble the Sedaraby style Manolos sold at Barney’s. But the price tag is far different. You’ll pay just $71.20 for the pair of RSVPs, while the real thing will cost you ten times that.

Go Designer on a Dime - Sample sales are a great way to score designer deals on a bargain bin budget. tracks the best sample sales in New York, California and online. Or check out online stores selling designer brands at significantly reduced prices. has lots of designer clothing with extremely low price tags, so you’ll be looking like you stepped off the set of Sex and the City 2 in no time.

XOXO has a dress that looks just like Carrie's white dress from Halston. I've seen it at Macys and on
