Sex and the City season one predicted exactly what you're wearing today.

I was watching a midday rerun of Sex and the City the other day when I noticed Carrie’s slinky, silk dress.

How nice, I thought.

Then I noticed the silk slip showing up in my Instagram feed, the items hanging on my clothes rack and what my friend beside me was wearing.


I spent the rest of the episode counting how many 2017 trends were in this one episode and soon I realised something truly terrifying: SATC predicted our wardrobes almost twenty years ago.

Silk slips, kimonos, wrap dresses, one shoulder, no shoulder, the female suit, the vintage band tee, tartan.


Get ready to feel about as original as a sandwich.

Off The Shoulder AND Tartan.

The Kimono.

It was one of the bravest trends to hit the mainstream last year but HEY, Carrie was rocking it almost 20 years ago.

Not so edgy now, are you?
