TikTok took HBO’s …And Just Like That and raised it with Carla Rockmore. Said to be “real-life Carrie Bradshaw,” the Texas resident went viral thanks to her 90-second-long videos that prove fashion is fabulous at any age. She’s amassed more than two million TikTok followers —even the New York Times has taken note.

Like Bradshaw, Rockmore exudes fabulousness; her vibrant personality shines through from one post to another, giving viewers a lesson on mixing patterns, playing with bold prints and the history behind some of her most coveted pieces.
Still, while her fanbase is constantly evolving and growing, Carla’s style is not: She knows not just what to wear and how to wear it. To prove just that, she’s teamed up with Amazon for a brand-new collection as part of the retailer’s global influencer-partnered The Drop line.
Available to shop now, the Carla Rockmore x The Drop is available in women’s extended sizes XXS to 3X and designed to make women “sit well in their own skin,” as Carla puts it. The collection features pieces such as a palazzo pant, maxi dress and button-down shirt, touching on emerging trends while staying true to Carla’s forever favorites. “If you infuse pieces that are truly original, you will start curating your own sense of style,”she said—and when you do, it won’t matter what age you are.
Every piece can be worn “everywhere” and will work dressed up or dressed down. Ahead of the debut, Reviewed exclusively sat down with the 54-year-old styling star to learn a thing or two about developing our own personal style.
Carla Rockmore on developing your own signature style
Carla said creating a look that feels like you means listening to yourself. “Personal style is not fashion, and they are not interchangeable. Trends, although important and exciting, are not doctrine. If you have your style, develop it, and then put it out there for others to enjoy,” Carla said. A handful of wardrobe essentials is more important than “trendier” pieces, she advised. Plus, the right accessories will help you “change up your look without too much commitment.”
To curate your own sense of style, Rockmore recommends playing with pieces that “make your heart sing.”Fortunately, the Carla Rockmore x The Drop collection has everything you’ll need to do that.
1. Start with the perfect sleeveless dress
Want to streamline styling? Same—that’s why we’re swooning over this midi dress. Available in women’s sizes XXS to 3X, this midnight blue dress “does not scream, but rather whispers, elegance,” says Carla. Cut from timeless midnight cotton poplin, it has an architectural fold-over front yoke detail, which juxtapose the tapering of your waist. It then flows into a voluminous skirt of clean drape that can transition from day to night.

2. Update your outdated button-down shirts
We take your classic button-down shirts and raise you this statement piece. Available in women’s sizes XXS to 3X, the pleated balloon sleeve and French cuff pair perfectly with the asymmetric shorter front and longer back. Designed as a conch shell pink and crisp white confection, tuck it in or leave it out; either way, it’ll be a dream to style.
