Sex and the City 2 debuts in theaters around the country tomorrow and no doubt there will be lots of fashion involved!! The characters of Sex and the City have always said that ‘New York’ is the fifth character in the show and that ‘Fashion’ is the sixth and there is no lack of fashion in the second movie (according to the trailers).

These four ladies; Carrie Bradshaw (AKA: Sarah Jessica Parker), Samantha Jones (AKA: Kim Cattral), Charlotte York (AKA: Kristin Davis), and Miranda Hobbes (AKA: Cynthia Nixon); have become fashion icons and therefore the women who will go watch the movie on opening night will undoubtedly show up in nothing but the best outfits! 

Some will dress to the nines with cocktail dresses and high stilettos, while others will try and portray a certain character from the movie. This is nothing new, as it all happened at the premier of Sex and the City (the first movie) in 2008. Women flocked, in their Manolo’s and Jimmy Choo’s, to the theaters hours early just to get a good seat in order to see if Carrie and Mr. Big really did end up together.

If you would like to simply dress up for this event (or any other social event for that matter) think ‘Glamour’! Go with color for the spring/summer season instead of the usual black. Although black is always slimming and the ‘go to’ color for elegance, step it up a little and add a bit of edge. So wear a colorful dress or top with skinny jeans. Play around with florals and prints as this season they are definitely IN! 

If you aren’t much for patterns or too much color then wear a black or neutral color that you are comfortable in but add a pop of color with the accessories. Say, with a simple black dress that fits your body well and boost your confidence, add a salmon clutch or pink high heels and it will make it a completely different outfit! Just be aware that there is a limit, so don’t go overboard by adding too many accessories. 

If you are up for the challenge of portraying a particular character from the series/films you have many different options. If you choose to dress like Carrie, you have to be willing to take many fashion risks! She combines many items that would not normally be paired but she always rocks it with confidence so she looks great! Samantha is a whole other ball game as she is risky but in a different way. She is extremely confident in her body and doesn’t mind to show it off so you will have to show a little skin for this character (but again, there are limits!). Miranda’s style can be described as ‘smart’ and classy as she wears more pants and conservative clothes but in this film it looks as though she wears more dresses and prints. Charlotte’s style is very classic so you can channel your inner Audrey Hepburn for this outfit, and don’t forget the pearls!! 

Whatever you wear to the premier of Sex and the City 2 – wear it with confidence and don’t forget the most important thing – strut your stuff as you walk into that theater!!
