My idol is Audrey Hepburn. She is so classy and beautiful, and she had a sense of humor. I was always charmed by her when watching old movies, and started dressing like her even.
This is a great blueprint of how to look very much like Audrey Hepburn, specifically like her character Holly Golightly in the classic film, Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
To start off, Holly was always in a dress that you knew was over the top expensive from one of her Hollywood friends. The dress in this outfit set is a modern twist on something she would wear! The color she was famous for was black, but blue is softer and more casual. The mesh at the top shows a peep of skin, just enough scandal for Ms. Golightly. Then the brown wrap-around belt is another way to stay modern and casual again. But you still probably look more dressed up and classy then just wearing a shirt and jeans.
As for the heels, Holly was always in something tall! But her heels were mainly black, along with the rest of her rich wardrobe. But these nude heel pumps are perfect for this dress! The brown in the belt is accented by the nude shoe, and the lighter color makes it look a bit more casual.
The flower petal bag is beautiful and perfect for the outfit! Very classy, and matching the nude shoes, it holds the same “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” Hollywood vibe because it is hand held! Any type of clutch that you can tuck away somewhere easily holds a great amount of class. But the flower petals are a pretty modern design. It’s just recently that people like Cynthia Rowley and other designers adapted the large petals that overwhelm the whole design of bags, shirts, pillows, etc.
The sunglasses are something that Golightly never goes without. Audrey Hepburn herself never left without a huge pair of “Hollywood sunglasses” on her petite face. This is a more modern color, the nude matching the bag and shoes, but an old style, cat eye design that will cover a lot of your face, turning you into a starlet.
Lastly, the beautiful accessories. Holly of course loved Tiffany’s, so what’s more appropriate than a lot of simple bling. Stud earrings that have rhinestones,matching a rhinestoned cocktail ring, go perfect with a glamorous watch.
I hope you guys enjoy this! It is perfect if you are going to an event and want some inspiration for a type of style. I love Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and I hope that the visual will help you dress in this style everyday as well! (I can’t help that I do, I love the whole vibe) 🙂
