Pledge Allegiance to Sex and the City's Low-Key Style Icon This Halloween: Miranda
Miranda is back, baby. With Cynthia Nixon running for governor of New York and 2018 being hailed as the Year of The Miranda (be proud, Mirandas!), the classic Sex and the City character is more relevant than ever. After revisiting her boss lady style choices, we found tons of great outfits just begging to be recreated. What's even better? Miranda is known for her structured blazers, shirts, and the occasional pair of overalls, aka stuff we already have — or, at least, have been wanting to add — to our closet.
Ahead, you'll find 10 iconic Miranda looks that will no doubt make great costumes come Oct. 31 . . . once you add a short red wig, of course!
There was no shortage of power suits in Miranda's closet — she even wore one the very first time we saw her! If you're looking to go with the most obvious Miranda choice (aka an outfit that will let everyone know who you are) style a structured blazer ($585, originally $1,950) over a button-down, then complete your look with some statement-making jewelry.
Leather Trench Coat Miranda
No, this isn't The Matrix — it's what Miranda wears to the movies! The key piece is a leather trench coat ($95, originally $135), so pull that baby over a turtleneck and you're pretty much set.
Baseball Game Miranda
By now, you've probably noticed just how much this lady loves a turtleneck, so if you're looking to emulate her style on Oct. 31, you might want to pick up a bright red option ($335). But if it's Miranda's game day look you're after, specifically? You'll need to get some round, white sunglasses ($320), too.
Pink Skirt Miranda
Miranda was onto something with this bright pink, satin skirt, because these days, similar styles are everywhere. We're personally loving Topshop's Satin Drape Midi ($65), which can easily be paired with T-shirts and sweaters (and maybe Mary Jane flats?) long after Halloween is over.
Hood and Hat Miranda
Neck Brace Miranda
In this particular episode, Miranda's most notable look is her, on the floor, naked, being rescued by Aiden after having a neck spasm. But we prefer Miranda in her blue pajama shirt ($120), complete with a neck brace, telling Carrie how messed up it was to send her boyfriend instead of coming herself.
Professional Cowgirl Miranda
Miranda may have decided to ride this mechanical bull on a whim, but somehow, she still manages to dress the part. Recreate this ensemble by tucking a pale pink button-down ($120) into dark wash jeans, and then, of course, add some drop earrings and dainty necklace for that signature Miranda effect.
Throughout the years, Miranda's style became more "trendy" than "work" (but she still loves those statement earrings!), and by the time the Sex and the City movie came around, she was even getting fancy to help Carrie pack up her closet. Still, a printed black dress ($510) won't be the only piece you'll need to create this costume. Carry around a "Take" or "Toss" sign to give it that little something extra!
