A Fashion Editor's Reaction to the Sex and the City Reboot Promo

A fashion editors review on what we’ve seen so far.

Hang on to your Lady Diors and Birkin bags because Sex and the City is getting a reboot. It was announced in January of 2021 that the series would have a reboot coming to HBO. The new series titled And Just Like That, stars all of the original cast other than Kim Kattral.

We can all agree that the most interesting aspect of this reboot will be the FASHION.

A new promotional photo was released, and I believe it’s a good indicator of what to expect for the cast’s wardrobe.

Instantly the first thing that comes to mind when seeing this photo is, this is going to be a very different series from the original. Not only because it’s a much different time period since we’ve last seen these characters (2004), but this new wardrobe says it all.

I have to admit I’m not impressed with this wardrobe lineup so far. The clothing in this photo could easily pass for an Old Navy or Banana Republic ad campaign. The clothes are lackluster and I feel that the wardrobe is influenced by modern standards of style.
