A Fashionable Farewell: The Carrie Diaries' Most Memorable Looks
We know we aren't the only ones torn up over the cancelation of The Carrie Diaries. 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 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 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. Front
The original breakfast club.
Carrie strutted the NYC streets in a leopard Topshop top, embroidered Tulle skirt, and metallic t-strap pumps, then finished with a kelly green coat. Don this luxe Simone Rocha skirt ($2,871) for a fancy affair, or go flirty with this Loft mini ($65, originally $80).
Check out Larissa's haute fascinator.
Carrie's polka-dot-infused lace-overlay Bill Blass gown is the epitome of '80s glamour. Score her exact dress on Etsy ($1,334) — only one left! — or take a more subtle approach to Carrie's colorful creation with this Coincidence & Chance mini ($79).
Who doesn't love a good rooftop limo session?
We are in awe of Carrie's cascading curls.

Carrie, it's prom. Why are you so serious?
First comes love, then comes a puppy . . . wait, that's not how it goes.
Carrie parties the night away in a polka-dot print Carolina Herrera gown, accessorized with this double row Bounkit necklace ($1,738), on this week's episode. This striped Carolina Herrera creation ($4,690) is just as playful as Carrie's selection.
A shearling-trim twill coat and folded boots were Maggie's look of choice this week. Pair this asymmetrical Guess jacket ($100, originally $210) with your favorite denim and leather boots to nail her casual-cool look. Don't forget a leather camera bag, like this one by Marc Jacobs ($228), to store all of your street style essentials.
Sam's arm candy lent a spot of sweetness to her sassy party dress. Stack on this New York & Co. floral bracelet ($20), Michael Kors buckle bangle ($93, originally $125), and lacquered Forever 21 number ($9) to mimic her style.
Inspired by Donna's military style? Work this Moschino body-con ($95, originally $131) with classic pumps and a blazer for the office, or try this Haute Hippie slip dress ($148, originally $295) with a leather jacket and cage sandals for a sexy date night look.
We wouldn't mind being carried by Sebastian.
We hope Dorrit's not interrupting anything . . .
Shine bright in a cherry sequined sweater and emerald denim like Carrie. Top these Banana Republic skinny jeans ($70, originally $90) with this embellished NY Collection sweater ($32, originally $54) to nail her party-ready look.
The Bradshaws wishing you and your family a very happy holiday season!
She showed off her wild side in an animal-print Torn by Ronny Kobo sweater dress ($378), a studded Topshop denim jacket, and and a lizard Paula Cademartori bag.
Larissa overdosed on color and print, tastefully, in a sequin Topshop jacket, punchy cropped trousers, and cobalt cutout heels. Turn heads in this bold topper ($70, originally $100) or this floral cropped biker jacket ($255, originally $363), both by ASOS.
Though this isn't the first time we've spotted Carrie donning her studded Topshop denim jacket, we're still in love. Get in on her punky style with this Saint Laurent cropped jacket ($1,181 originally $1,574) or go really bold with this ModCloth topper ($68).
Of course, Sam would head the Champagne campaign.
We love the color combination of Carrie's yellow-and-black Torn by Ronny Kobo dress and teal beaded necklace.

In true Carrie fashion, the trendsetter layered a prim Kate Spade cardigan over a watercolor shoe-print Eva Franco fit-and-flare ($137, originally $304). Score her exact cardigan in a different hue here ($125, originally $448).
The style setter topped this lightning-print Claudie Pierlot skirt ($236) with a printed Sandro top. Take Carrie's electrifying style to your next party by pairing this faux-leather Forever 21 skirt ($23) with a silky black blouse.
Carrie knows the key to mixing prints is finding a coordinating base color. She sported a colorful cropped sweater with high-waist floral shorts, then accessorized with a gorgeous Paula Cademartori bag. Take Carrie's bold ensemble from the streets to the beach with these tropical Josh Goot shorts ($940).
Carrie brought sexy back in a leopard-print, open-back Topshop dress, these colorful Jessica Simpson sandals ($65, originally $89), and this showstopping Angel Jackson bag ($466). Don her exact platforms with this Moschino Cheap and Chic mini ($175, originally $272) to nail her wild style.
Just a little girl talk to kick off the morning.
It's hard to miss Carrie in a neon geometric-print Nasty Gal body-con mini and colorblock Jessica Simpson sandals ($42-$50, originally $89). Make a bold statement in this sparkling mini from Nasty Gal ($88), or glam it up with this BCBG Max Azria number ($428) for a more sophisticated affair.
We love how Carrie highlighted her sweet pink and burgundy dress with coordinating jewels.
Getting a little close there, are we Weaver?
Umm, excuse me, what do you think of my outfit? Samantha showed off her curves in a lace keyhole blouse and acid-wash Silence + Noise denim skirt, cinched with a white leather belt, while approaching an unidentified
man ninja. Style this sassy Only Hearts Club top ($62, originally $92) with liquid leggings for a night out with the girls.
What's a party without a little Champagne?
Donna chose a floral H&M short set and embellished white denim vest for the concert in the park. Top these Delia's posey shorts ($20, originally $30) with this LBR bustier ($56, originally $117) and a rhinestone denim vest by Forever 21 ($23) for an '80s-approved ensemble.
