Charlotte York is part of the four fabulous women of Sex and the City. Next to her best friends Carrie Bradshaw, Miranda Hobbes, and Samantha Jones, these ladies use New York City as their own personal playground. For six seasons, fans of Sex and the City couldn't get enough of these trendsetters. While everyone was obsessed with Carrie's daring style, we can't sleep on Charlotte. In fact, we won't sleep on Charlotte.
Although she's preppier than what the Big Apple is used to, Charlotte's style is crisp. She has a very clear eye for what she likes and what works on her body. In today's modern era (the show did end in 2004, after all), we can compare Charlotte's style to Princess Kate Middleton or a Real Housewife of New York vacationing in the Hamptons. And out of 94 episodes (and two movies), we're taking a look at just 10 of her best outfits.
10 CHARLOTTE AND BURBERRY IS A LEWK
The women of Sex and the City wear head-to-toe designer clothes in every episode (even if we still don't understand how Carrie affords her closet), but if there's one high-end brand Charlotte looks best in, it's Burberry.
Seeing her in that Burberry raincoat is enough to make anyone wish it was raining. Not many like the rain, but we'd learn to like it if we had a coat like that to wear! Likewise, not many people can pull off fluffy earmuffs, but it's a different story when you're Charlotte York, and they're Burberry.
9 POLO IS THE ESSENCE OF CHARLOTTE AND CHARLOTTE IS THE ESSENCE OF POLO
If you've seen the preppy logo of the polo player riding a horse, then you're looking at Polo Ralph Lauren. It's the one designer that screams Hamptons. The designs are very sporty but in a chic kind of way.
We often find Charlotte wearing Polo as her relaxed look, which is humorous because the brand is anything but casual. Nevertheless, there's something about Charlotte in Polo that just works!
8 HER INTERVIEW OUTFIT
In the 13th episode of the sixth season, we see Charlotte anxiously looking for a new hobby or job while she's trying to have a baby. Knowing how consumed Charlotte can be when it comes to having a family life, she dove into the arts to keep herself busy.
For her first interview look, we see her in an adorable vest and tie getup that would literally only look good on Charlotte York or Cher Horowitz from Clueless. Due to her infinite class, Charlotte can pull off so many things that others simply can't.
7 NO ONE LOOKS THIS GOOD BAKING IN VALENTINO
In the second Sex and the City movie, we see our favorite gals tagging along with Samantha on a PR trip to the Middle East. As a mother of two, Charlotte was hesitant to go with the girls, but with full-time help, she had no excuses not to go. Before jetting off to the other side of the world, we see Charlotte backing cupcakes in a cream vintage Valentino pencil skirt. Baking in white is risky for anyone, but Charlotte pulled it off with some help from her apron.
By the end of the scene, it wasn't her bank skills that messed up her Valentino skirt; it was her eldest daughter.
6 NO ONE DID PREGNANCY STYLE LIKE HER
The first Sex and the City movie was magical for fans. After four years of being off-air, a movie was finally coming to theaters to show us what we've missed. Besides Big leaving Carrie at the alter and Samantha's boyfriend rift, we see Charlotte happy to be pregnant.
Before the baby comes, Charlotte heads out into the Big Apple and gets some shopping done before sitting down to enjoy a nice lunch — but that's when she sees Big. Charlotte becomes so upset at seeing Big that her water broke while wearing this adorable polka-dotted dress.
5 CHARLOTTE AS ELIZABETH TAYLOR
Charlotte York was a huge fan of Hollywood star Elizabeth Taylor. Like Taylor, Charlotte is also always put together from the outside. And after having a hard time on the homefront (from miscarriages to depression), Charlotte decided to pull herself out of the slump and ask, "what would Elizabeth Taylor do?"
She put on a stunning pink dress with a small black belt around the waist, put on a pair of shades, and had a fancy updo to bring herself back to life.
4 WHEN SHE WORE TARTAN TO MATCH TREY'S FAMILY
Not many people can pull off tartan. They either look like an adolescent or a teacher — there's no in-between. But for Charlotte, she looked like a Scottish goddess.
When she was still married to her first husband, Trey, Charlotte did everything she could to fit into his perfect little world. He was so close to his family that Charlotte bought into the role of Trey's perfect wife just to fit in. So when the opportunity arose to wear tartan and plaid to a family gathering, Charlotte did it was a distinct flare.
3 THE DRESS CHARLOTTE WORE TO A WEDDING THAT OUTSHINED THE BRIDE
It's not every day you see someone wearing black to a wedding, but we're making an exception for Charlotte. In the seventh episode of the second season, Carrie, Miranda, Samantha, and Charlotte are all invited to a quickie wedding on a whim. Miranda decides to dress daring to get back at the groom, Samantha is feeling washed-up after realizing she slept with a person she already slept with, and Carrie was over the moon that she and Big were going somewhere public together.
Charlotte, on the other hand, was pumped to wear this gorgeous black dress that caught everyone's attention. She stole the eyes off the bride! She even had a chance with the best looking guy at the wedding until the end of the night blew up in her face...
2 THE WHITE DRESS SHE CHOSE TO LURE THE GARDENER
All Charlotte wanted her entire life was to get married to the man of her dreams and have babies. She thought her dream was finally becoming a reality when she met Trey by accident, but their problems in the bedroom consumed too many of their problems outside of the bedroom.
Feeling unfulfilled sexually, Charlotte began—unknowingly—seeking attention from another man — a gardener. After seeing him work on the grounds, Charlotte decided to change into an outfit that this beautiful stranger couldn't resist. And she was right; he couldn't resist her.
1 THIS PINK NUMBER THAT WAS SO OUT OF CHARACTER FOR CHARLOTTE
In the fifth season, we see the ladies getting ready for Charlotte's "thirty faux" birthday. In a desperate attempt at clinging to their youth, the girls head to Atlantic City. The only problem is Miranda just had her baby and is feeling self-conscious, and Samantha is bummed out over Richard.
But let's not ignore the fact that Charlotte killed the entire season by wearing this stunning dress. It was sparkly, low-cut, and looked like it came out of Samantha's closet rather than Charlotte's! She looked like a disco-dancing Barbie, and we want more.
