Channeling Audrey Hepburn Style

One of my favorite style icons of all time would have to be Audrey Hepburn. Her classic beauty, style, and grace transcend time. Anyone who has heard of Audrey Hepburn would agree that her fashion sense is so elegant and timeless. Not only was Audrey an amazing actress, but her style was amazing both on and off screen. Furthermore, her personality only added to her elegance. In her older years she devoted her time to charitable causes and human rights work.

One of Audrey’s most famous roles was her role as Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. A lot of Hepburn’s iconic and classic style is also associated with this role she played. Her outfits within the film included a lot of black, white, and diamonds. The single most iconic look of the film would be the first outfit you see Audrey in. She wears a long black gown, a pearl and diamond necklace, diamond earrings, a diamond tiara, and elbow length black gloves. These days, it is quite easy to emulate this signature Audrey Hepburn look—mcz jewelryinus the diamonds, of course. Unless you are someone who can afford diamonds, this part of your Audrey Hepburn look would have to be slightly different. However, since Audrey’s time, cubic zirconia jewelry has become the number one alternative to diamond jewelry. Cubic zirconia jewelry looks just like diamond jewelry with some very slight differences that only some of the most trained professionals can identify.

You don’t have to go around everyday in a full out Audrey Hepburn get up, but you can certainly take elements of her classic style and incorporate them into your everyday wardrobe. Try side swept bangs, hair in a high pony, pearls, and cz jewelry studs. Or a classic black dress, black heels, and a cubic zirconia necklace. Remember that Audrey’s style was a calm and understated elegance. Keep it classic and simple and you won’t go wrong.
