Carrie Bradshaw in And Just Like That

Get Carrie’s Glasses from HBO’s “And Just Like That”

The best dupe for the now infamous Mykita Meryl Glasses are from Vooglam

It’s finally here.

Season 2 of the cult-favorite Sex and the City reboot, And Just Like That, is now streaming on MAX (the artist formerly known as HBO Max)!

When news of the long-awaited sequel to this iconic sitcom hit, SATC devotees were eager to dive back into that fairytale version of New York City propelled by each Carrie Bradshaw monologue. The past few months of anxious waiting have been packed with paparazzi shots of the cast filming and speculations about the plot. This is an attempt to satiate those die-hard loyalists greedy to see what the gang’s been up to over the years since the last movie.

This season's first episode saw the return of Carrie, Miranda, and Charlotte to our screens, but with a few modifications to the original series. And Just Like That introduces fresh characters and even has some surprises (no spoilers). Kim Cattrall did not appear as Samantha in Season I — shocking, I know. But this season we've been promised a cameo so we're all keeping our eyes peeled!

And we've already experienced a bevy of iconic moments in Season 2.

SATC gained its cult following due to its aspirational and whimsical portrait of life in New York City and And Just Like That maintains that magic.

After 16 years — and two movies — the franchise still retains its inexplicable place in popular culture. Those of us who were too young to have caught its premiere have since caught up by binging on endless reruns and even a prequel. For better or worse, Carrie & Co. are the paragons of what it means to be very young in New York — the blueprints of a bygone era that we love just the same.

The show’s legacy and its beloved characters have held strong despite the years. Even today, friend groups dub themselves either a Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda, or a Samantha. Young people embarking on adventurous lives in big cities like New York look to those old — though somewhat dated — episodes with the same adoration and reverence for the cast’s lives, their friendships, and for their clothes.

Perhaps this is the real reason the series has so endured: its representation of fashion. From the very outset, the characters dressed as though every moment was a grand occasion. While many series at the time criticized fashion as a vain, shallow obserrion, SATC was not one of them. Although flawed, the characters were well-rounded. They had full lives, they were passionate about their careers, they adored fashion, and were celebrated for it.

Sex and the City invites viewers to be daring in their lives and their fashion choices. Life is too short for drab clothes, the show declares. This occasionally unrealistic portrait of New York underscores that the show is not only about this city but about how your environment — whether it be people or places or the things you surround yourself with — grants you permission to dream.

What better encapsulated this than a shot of Carrie, looking out the window from her writing desk, her face lit only by her Apple PowerBook G3.

One image from the reboot And Just Like That — which went absolutely viral — replicates and amplifies this image. There’s Carrie sitting, thinking, writing, illuminated solely by her MacBook Pro? MacBook Air? We cannot be sure. But that shot aptly captures the flight of time as we superimpose Early Carrie with Carrie Today.

With the proliferation of this screen-still, many people are asking — as they always do with Carrie’s outfits and accessories — where can I get those glasses?

Wonder no more!

Dedicated fashion accounts did the deep dive for us and identified those glasses Sarah Jessica Parker has made the most coveted gold frames out there. They’re carried by a brand named Mykita, but these Meryl Frames will set you back close to $600.
