Whether she’s on the big screen in a delightfully eccentric tutu or sashaying through New York City’s streets in a clunky pair of clogs, Sarah Jessica Parker’s style has always been a constant source of inspiration. Over the years she has taught us so many sartorial lessons, especially in the accessories department. It’s rare to see Parker step out with a boring handbag or shoe—even her wear-everywhere clogs are cool enough to make classic gray sweatpants look exciting. She’s also the queen of making something as simple as a pair of khakis look interesting, thanks to her sharp layering skills and impeccable collection of power coats.
If you want to elevate your fall and winter outfits, there’s so much to learn from Parker’s style. Below, discover six fashion tips she’s demonstrating on and off the big screen.
