The Carrie Diaries Style Evolution!

Spending her summer in the city for the first time with the only man she’s ever fallen in love with will definitely have an effect on a young ladies wardrobe! In Carrie Bradshaw’s case, Manhattan and Mr. Right are actually one and the same! Needless to say in season two Carrie’s going to see her fashionable self evolve forward. She’ll experiment with body-con, and other ’80s aspirational, au-courant, fast-fashion trends like crop tops, dresses with cutouts, and sheer blouses with bras peeking through from underneath.

Samantha’s way atomic blonde way of dressing (her go-to accessories being wit and sass) will also have a distinct affect on Carrie.

#TUESDAYTREND: I Gave @redbookmag Tips On A Trend You’ll Love This Fall With My Ultimate Guide to Mixing Prints A La Blair Waldorf!

Queen of the Paris Mix and Match.

I literally love her iconic style and fabulous print mixing savy. This mixed up Moschino ensemble is one of my favs! Delicieuse! She knows the ultimate secret to keeping her print mixing and matching looking savvy and sophisticated is to use discretion in how she pairs her pieces. She keeps the proportion of her patterns consistent, and keeps her tones together and her color palette controlled. She follows this rule all the way, with apropos accessories–a Chanel bag, beret and Louboutins bien sur! J’adore!

#FASHIONFRIDAYS: I told @TeenVogue @LindseyGort Rocks Fierce #80sFashion from @UrbanOutfitters @Guess and @Versace in The Carrie Diaries

samantha-jones-carries-diaries-big‘Carrie Diaries’ Exclusive! Samantha Jones’s Style Secrets

Costume designer Eric Daman fills us on what to expect from the newest (and ’80s-est) Carrie Diaries character, Samantha Jones.

TeenVogue: How would you compare Carrie Diaries Samantha to Sex and the City Samantha? On SATC, Samantha’s style was actually sort of ’80s with all those suits!

ERIC DAMAN: Totally. When we met Samantha in Sex and the City, she’s older and her style’s more elevated, but in The Carrie Diaries, she’s in fringed T-shirts and leather skirts and layers of chunky studded belts. She’s growing up in the rock world, getting her first taste of power, and the power suits she wears in the ’90s are definitely a carryover of those from the ’80s.

TeenVogue: What brands are you dressing her in?

ERIC DAMAN: We did a big sweep of the fast fashion stores—there’s a lot of H&M and Topshop. Material Girl from Macy’s has tons of great pieces, and so do Bebe and Guess. We’re actually using vintage Guess which seems very appropriate, but the new Guess collection is also kind of perfect. Urban Outfitters has leather bralets and lace crop tops, and even though these pieces have an ’90s feel, we tailor them to have more of an ’80s silhouette. She’s into Manolo Blahnik shoes, and their pointy shape is key to her style. We’re also using things from Rodarte‘s acid-wash collection that are really perfect and Versace‘s Versus line has a great leather jacket with gold studs. It feels very tongue-in-cheek and overdone, but that’s what those girls wore!
