“I’m sorry, I can’t, don’t hate me.”

Instagram captions inspired by "Sex And The City."

2023 marks the 25th anniversary of the greatest love letter to New York City ever written, Sex and the City. Over two decades later, the show is still as iconic as ever, and Carrie and her friends’ stories of relationships and sex have somehow never been more relevant. That’s probably why the show’s most memorable quotes still produce the best Instagram captions after all this time, even though the series hit the airwaves long before anyone dared to utter the words “smartphone” or “photo dump.” With so many classic lines to choose from, finding the perfect quote might be a struggle, but with these 15 Sex and the City Instagram caption ideas, you’ll feel like the fifth member of the beloved squad.

Every Sex and the City stan knows which of the four fabulous leading ladies they identify with the most. But just because you have the same deadpan charm as Miranda or chic Park Avenue-meets-quiet luxury aesthetic as Charlotte, that doesn’t mean you have to use one of their quotes to caption your IG photo. In fact, your favorite character may not even have the best quotable moments of the series. If that’s the case, you’re going to need some help picking the line that works best with the vibe of your post. Whether you’re visiting New York City or brunching with your besties, these 15 caption ideas are sure to meet all of your posting needs.
