Sex and the City Character Inspiration: Samantha Jones

Samantha Jones is sexy, powerful, strong, and fierce. She is never afraid of wearing bold prints, color, and lots of accessories, and always looks ultra glam. She always knows how to show off her best assets, and her confidence is her most important accessory. While we may not have Samantha's PR budget to work with, here are ways to emulate her style for a lot less:

Samantha loves being the center of attention, and this one-shouldered bold printed dress by Bebe is sure to do the trick. Perfect for cocktails with the girls, we love the splash of hot pink and the belted waist, and the matching accessories picture on the model is just Samantha's style.

While Samantha does like bold prints and colors, our favorite look for her is old Hollywood glam. We can just picture her strutting around in this chiffon halter dress by Maggy London, topped off with perfectly coiffed blonde curls and some bright red lipstick. 

Samantha's confidence means big heels in bright colors, like these Steve Madden platform sandals. Samantha is big into color coordination, so don't be afraid to rock these with a banana yellow dress or jewelry. It may seem over the top, but really, you can never have too much going on.

It takes a lot of guts to go full on head to toe monochromatic, as it's a look like that is sure to turn more than a few heads.  Samantha's love for "notice me" shades would have her right at home in this kiwi green suit.  She would rock this with matching bag and shoes, and we wouldn't be the least bit surprised if she swapped out that tie waist belt for another that is a little more substantial... and probably metallic.

Every bit the sex bomb, Samantha would sizzle in this form fitting, red satin pencil dress by Karen Millen.  We love the color and beautiful neckline. Just add some gold bangles and earrings and throw on a pair of strappy sandals, and Smith Jerrod is all yours!

Samantha's version of casual still includes a lot of bling. This flowy top from XOXO is perfect for the desert (Dubai, anyone?) and would look great with a pair of wide leg trousers.  

Representing celebrities for a living means your office attire is a bit different than the regular suit and blouse combo that we're all used to. This high waisted skirt and gold glitter top, available at Express, is the type of outfit Samantha would wear when striking deals and breaking hearts, coast to coast.

So not everyone can engage in a bidding war to win a thousand dollar, over sized, diamond flower ring like Samantha -- but you can buy a replica online for only $39.99! Show off your confidence and independence by sporting this ring on your left hand, which will certainly overshadow any other jewelry that may or may not be there. Just try doing some finger weights beforehand, this looks like it could be pretty hefty!

Go out there and be fabulous, dolls!
