Vintage Love: Audrey Hepburn & Achieving Her Look

In my mind, Audrey Hepburn was one of the most stylish women in history. She was beautiful both inside and outside and I admire her both as a person and a style icon.

One thing about Audrey’s style that was so special is its timelessness. Take a look at the photos bellow, and you will notice classic pieces that could easily be worn today such as plaid button downs and striped tees.

Now for a few ideas on incorporating Audrey’s style into yours!
 

1. Look for simple striped tees. They are classic and  so wearable. This one from J.Crew has three quarter length sleeves, a curved hem, and cute pocket. Pair it with skinny jeans and ballet flats for a classic but modern look.

2. Audrey often wore simple shorts like these from Banana Republic. They are a dressier option for shorts, and look great with a striped tee of plaid top.

3. Try a plaid button down blouse! This one from ModCloth has a cute collar detail and could be worn in countless cute ways!

4. Ballet flats. At a time when stylish women almost always favored heels, Audrey rebelled and wore flats. One of her signature styles was a simple blouse, slim pants, and a pair of flats. These from Ruche incorporate some lovely modern details such as a metallic toe.

5. Finally, keep a classic dress in your closet. Black is always a great option. You can pull it out for day in the winter and at nighttime all year long. This one from Asos is so classic featuring an A-line skirt and elbow sleeves.

Most of what Audrey Hepburn wore were simple pieces that could easily be mixed and matched. Try one or a few of these options to add a little Audrey flair to your wardrobe!
