The 8 Items That Will Help You Look a Little More Audrey Hepburn Every Day
Filmstar Audrey Hepburn has long been considered one of our greatest style icons, and her son Sean Ferrer told US Vogue that tweens and teens now make up 50% of her fanbase, proving her style is truly timeless. “People have always talked about her grace, [and wondered], What was the secret of her elegance? What was her system? What was her style?” he said, and these are questions he is planning on answering in a book about her style, which will be released in 2018. However if you can't wait to find out these answers, we have done some unpicking too to bring you the eight items that still look just as relevant decades later and will make you look a little more Audrey each day. Keep scrolling to see and shop her eight signature pieces.
1. Cropped Trousers
Style Notes: Audrey Hepburn loved her cropped cigarette trousers, either in black, gingham or a fun summer print. She wore them with either a white shirt or her signature black roll-neck and always paired them with her flat ballet pumps.
2. Black Roll-neck
3. White Shirt
Style Notes: Audrey famously wore an oversized white shirt to bed with her blue eyemask in Breakfast at Tiffany's, however, white shirting was a Hepburn signature. She didn't just wear the same fit, however, as she often played with different styles from sleeveless to cropped linen shirts.
4. Little Black Dress
5. Silk Scarf
6. Ballet Pumps
7. Statement Sunglasses
Le Specs Liar Lair Cat-Eye Tortoiseshell Acetate Sunglasses (£40)
8. Trench Coat
Style Notes: When you say the words, Holly Golightly, chances are that you're thinking of her in a headscarf and belted trench coat. Audrey often wore classic trenches on- and off-screen (earlier this year, Christie's auctioned one of her Burberry macs), and decades later, they still look just as timeless.
