Without fashionista PATRICIA FIELD dressing SJP, the former SEX star seems more a dowdy doyenne with one faux pas after another with her clueless couture!

 STYLE mavens are turning up their noses at SARAH JESSICA PARKER’s latest fashion foray – designing socks to wear with heels!

The 47-year-old “Sex and the City” star started a trend when she wore the quirky combo on the hit HBO show back in the ’90s. Now she’s determined to revive the fad with her own line of stylish socks, but pals predict it will be a bust.

SARAH MIGHT HAVE BEEN ONE OF the most imitated and admired style icons 10 years ago, but that’s not the case anymore,” an insider tells The ENQUIRER.

“And this socks-with-heels obsession will only damage what fashion credibility she has left.”

As TV peacock Carrie Bradshaw, Sarah made Manolo Blahnik heels a household name. But the mother of three’s socks-with-heels look didn’t have the same staying power.

“Now she wants to make one more push to see if she can turn it into a craze,” said the source.

“She’s already designing her own line of socks, and she’s even got her 3-year-old twin girls Tabitha and Loretta helping. It’s great for mommy-daughter bonding, but Sarah really needs to put this sock business to rest.”

While Sarah is widely regarded as a fashion icon, few people realize that “Sex and the City” stylist Patricia Field played a major role in her fashion evolution, according to the source.

“Without Patricia, Sarah didn’t have a clue,” said the insider, “and her socks-with-heels trend will just never take off the way she hopes. It’s just too childish for today’s fashionistas.”
