Sex and the City Character Inspiration: Charlotte York

As we anxiously await the release of the newest Sex and the City movie next week, we've found ourselves wondering what types of outfits are out there this season that we'd be sure to find in the closets of Manhattan's favorite fashionistas.  Today we'll be inspiring you to channel your inner Charlotte.  Charlotte York's style is classic, feminine, and sexy (although she is typically considered to be the most conservative of the bunch).  This look is easy to pull off on a budget! Take a look below at some of our picks to help you on your way to creating a Charlotte-esque wardrobe.  You can't go wrong with neutral colors, feminine detailing like bows, lace, and ruffles, and fitted, classic silhouettes!

Charlotte always looks incredible put together, which is why we could imagine her in this sweet and simple black and white dress available at Macy's. This is something that could be worn while out running errands, brunching with the girls, and volunteering at the museum.

For a more casual look (and we use that term loosely) check out this preppy and sophisticated fit and flare shirtdress with gold buttons. Charlotte always has a wonderful tan, which would look great with this bright white dress, and the belt would flatter her pear shaped body.

This strapless, pleated floral print dress would be perfect for a hot summer day out shopping with the girls. The dress is very feminine, just like Charlotte, complete with a sweetheart neckline and piping at the waist. 

 While Charlotte loves her pearl necklaces,  pearl earrings are just her style as well. These romantic rose and classic pearl stud earrings for all occasions, and at just $3.80, they're quite a steal!

Now that Charlotte has two girls of her own, playing dress up isn't always practical. However "play clothes" don't need to be boring, which is why we think this ruffled and frilly cardigan from Anthropologie would be perfect for the afternoons chasing the kids around the park.

Although being a mom sometimes means the end of tiny little clutches, Charlotte knows how to keep her style in tact (her pregnancy outfits are a clear testament to this). We think this dainty wicker and lace clutch purse from Mod Cloth is a perfect accessory for those days when Charlotte is able to take off with the girls, as it can comfortably carry her phone, lip gloss, and credit cards -- no snack packs or baby wipes included!

While channeling her inner Martha Stewart, Charlotte would look timeless in this retro, printed halter dress. Whether she's making pot roast, Sabbath dinner, or ordering take-out, Charlotte is the picture perfect housewife.

While Carrie is definitely the shoe fanatic of the bunch, Charlotte loves her sandals. We thinks this feminine and delicate "Daarling" platform pump by Steve Madden is exactly the type of sandal Charlotte would go for -- it's sexy but not too loud, just like our favorite Park Avenue Pollyana.

Stay tuned for our next post about our favorite Manhattanites!
