Carrie Bradshaw from “Sex and the City” changed outfits nearly as much as she changed boyfriends. Try achieving the beauty of Carrie with these simple tips for makeup, health and (of course) fashion.

Things You'll Need

  • Hair product that brings out natural texture.
  • Creative fashion choices and designer brands.
  • Bold colors and patterns.
  • Funky accessories, hats and belts.
  • Beautifully constructed and sky-high heels.

Start creating Carrie’s famous look by embracing the natural texture of your hair. Throughout the many seasons of “Sex and the City," Carrie was seen with wild and curly locks, regardless of length or color. Try letting hair air dry and bring out waves with texturizing spray or moisturizing mousse.

Understand the power of fashion by letting your outfits mimic your mood. Carrie was known for daring and bold fashion statements, and literally wore her emotions on her (haute couture) sleeve. Try empowering your personal fashion sense by abandoning your previous standby outfits and creating looks that change by the day…or hour…or feeling.

Get bold with fashion choices by mixing and matching patterns. Try combining a floral scarf with a pinstripe pant, or pairing a Pucci print with a subtler pattern. Create contrast (not war) by experimenting with patterns in outfits, and making sure that everything truly works together.

Accessorize like you’ve never accessorized before. Carrie expressed herself by topping every outfit with a creative hat, wild necklace, daring boot or flower pin. After putting together an outfit, try adding an “unexpected twist” (such as thick belts or funky headpieces) to truly feel like Carrie.

Understand that there is never a moment without fashion. To truly achieve Carrie’s look, try to always appear presentable and play around with fashion and designers. Whether relaxing at home or cleaning her apartment, Carrie continually put effort into her appearance (even if it meant donning a necklace with pajamas.)

Tips & Warnings

  • Start walking everywhere…and preferably in heels. Stay slim like Carrie and build wonderful calve muscles by walking to your daily errands or lunches with friends (even if you don’t live on the streets of New York.)
