I love watching movies, particularly anything in the period drama category or films from the 1930s-50s. One of my favorite ways to wind down is to brew a cup of tea, put on my favorite cozy sweater, and curl up with a favorite movie. Costume design has always been interesting to me, and I love seeing how the clothes of different characters add depth to how we perceive them in the story. A well developed character will have an equally well developed wardrobe, rather it’s what I would call beautiful or not. I take a lot of style inspiration from my favorite films, and today I’m sharing a few of those favorites with you. Wardrobe inspiration is everywhere, but it is abundant on the silver screen.
I’ve written many times about my love for Audrey Hepburn’s chic style, and who better to take inspiration from when shopping for vintage than the ladies of a given era? Today’s collection of vintage finds takes inspiration from Audrey. From vintage Givenchy pieces, to classic wardrobe staples, these items will give any wardrobe a touch of Hepburn flair.
LBDs, Trenches, & Givenchy
Pieces that come to mind when I think of Audrey Hepburn include little black dresses, statement earrings, striped tops, trench coats, and slim-fitting trousers. Throw a vintage Givenchy piece into the mix, and your Audrey-esque wardrobe is well on its way. Here I’ve collected an eclectic mixture of pieces inspired by her stunning on-screen looks as well as her more laid-back off-camera ensembles.

It’s no secret that I love Audrey Hepburn for her style, her acting, and who she was as a person. Her personal style off and on camera inspires me– her sleek looks were so ahead of the time. Today’s look is my first capsule combination of the fall season, and I drew a lot of inspiration from Audrey.
