A Fashionable Farewell: The Carrie Diaries' Most Memorable Looks

May 8 2014 - 3:00pm

We know we aren't the only ones torn up over the cancelation of The Carrie Diaries [1]. Each week the CW's prequel offered a fresh batch of avant-garde ensembles to pore over — filling the sartorial void left by Sex and the City.

Season one's styles [2] were filled with the perfect mix of vibrant colors, bold retro prints, and over-the-top accessories, and as expected, stylist Eric Daman treated us to an array of grand creations worthy of the original Carrie Bradshaw [3] in Season Two.

Before we bid adieu to one of our favorite fashion-centric shows, take a trip down memory lane with the best looks from season two.
