‘The Carrie Diaries’ Fashion: What Carrie Wore

Last night’s episode of The Carrie Diaries was full of romance and, of course, on point ’80s steez. We caught up with Eric Daman, the man in charge of the cast’s clothes and accessories to get the deets on Carrie’s wardrobe as she carefully navigated her Sebastian-filled high school halls and spiced up her new romance with Weaver in New York.

As usual, Carrie looks sleeker for study hall than most people do for black tie events. Eric explained, “Carrie’s school style is making statements this season: she is a senior, after all, AND interning at Interview Magazine! This outfit is school girl chic and sexy, the black Maeve blouse keeps her artsy edge but the soft 3D floral detail on her collar and sleeve keeps her fresh as a daisy. Punchy red earrings from Etsy are totally on trend 80’s and very Carrie. Her Polka dot Kate Spade kitten heels are hallway appropriate for this stylish student on the go! Teetering in 5″ Manolos is a high school no-no!” It should be noted that I did not design Carrie’s incredible 3D shirt, despite the shared name. I’m going to start gluing flowers to all my of clothes, though, because they look awesome.

Carrie has been a big fan of animal prints this season and in keeping with that, for her date with Weaver, she opted for a “burnt orange leopard print Topshop dress.” Eric wanted Carrie “to look provocative and confident, but also flirty and innocent. The decollete was just plunging enough, the backless detail was just revealing enough, and the flippy skirt was just flirty enough to be sheer heaven for this once in a lifetime moment!” Besides being the perfect fit for everything he was trying to achieve with the dress, Eric told us the dress had a secret bonus: Topshop had several in AnnaSophia’s size, which was essential because of the scene’s rainstorm and shooting schedule. ISN’T BEHIND-THE-SCENES INFORMATION THE BEST? I’ll look at that dress in an entirely different way now! The turquoise belt was to add a sense of “Carrie Bradshaw whimsy,” which, TBH, is definitely shining through.
