Sarah Jessica Parker is pleased her new scent, STASH by SJP, is attracting just as many males as females.

Sarah Jessica Parker is addicted to grey sweaters.

The Sex and the City star often glams up for red carpet events, but she looks just as good in comfy, casual clothes while out and about in New York. There’s one garment in particular that she can’t get enough of and has led her to stockpiling more than one.

“Grey sweaters,” she laughed to Britain’s Look magazine when asked what the one item she can’t stop buying is. “I have, like, six that are the same. I always buy from (brand) Alternative Apparel. I don’t suit striped tees. I love them on other people and I wish they suited me. I don’t shop much.”

The actress may not shop a lot but, like her SATC alter ego Carrie Bradshaw, she has a passion for footwear. However she insists it’s a “myth” that she’s always wearing stilettos as she reasons she can’t go about her daily errands, like looking after her kids and attending meetings, in towering shoes.

Sarah, 51, is more interested in perfume though and has a fragrance empire to her name. Her latest release is STASH by SJP, a unisex fragrance she’s been waiting 10 years to launch.

“We’ve had about the same amount of men sharing posts about it and saying how much they adore it,” she added of the gender neutral scent. “It’s funny because when I came up with the concept, the industry was like: ‘No, that’s not done.’ But this was worth waiting for.”

Make-up also plays a small part in Sarah’s appearance, but she keeps things simple. She prefers a gloss to lipstick and often turns to a smoky eye using a pencil as her go-to look.
