Audrey Hepburn our official classic style icon. Her closet was full of the many fashion staples women still swear by today: fitted pants, the “LBD,” cropped silhouettes and an envious assortment of hats and earrings.
But what we love best about Hepburn’s style was her hearty attitude. She was able to make such groundbreaking sartorial choices because she was confident in her own skin and didn’t take life too seriously.
Sometimes, a simple dress is all you need. You can let your natural features steal the attention.
Gloves add a touch of sophistication to any outfit. Hepburn’s cutesy look was elevated by her immaculate white gloves.
Striped t-shirts and cropped haircuts can still look super feminine. Hepburn’s confidence made this boyish look shine.
A belt cinched in the middle of a dress creates a lovely shape.
Collared shirts never go out of style.
You can never go wrong with a bold red lip.
Simple color blocking creates a classic look.
Fun, bold prints are always a go. Hepburn’s feminine makeup and wide-brimmed hat helped to balance out the strong pattern on this dress.
Women can wear loafers just as well as men.
Sunglasses work with literally any outfit — even formal ones. In this infamous picture, Hepburn exuded “cool” by pairing Wayfarer-style shades with her jeweled-out LBD.
Take a fashion risk, and wear that unique item. If Hepburn was anything, she was definitely an individual.
Find a classic and practical bag.
Skip the bikini, and wear a bright one-piece bathing suit. You’ll turn more heads in this often over-looked bathing suit choice.
Babydoll dresses still look great as you mature. Just make sure you don’t pick a dress that’s too juvenile-looking, but rather one that is tastefully youthful .
Your senior years are the perfect time to break out the intricate jewelry. While it can sometimes look a little overdone on younger women, flashy earrings and necklaces add spark to a sophisticated lady’s ensemble. (As Holly Golightly put it, “It’s tacky to wear diamonds before you’re 40.”)
The final and most important lesson: Wear clothes you can be yourself in.
