Red Fashion Vixen- Audrey Hepburn

Audrey Hepburn remains to be one of the greatest actresses and style icons of all time. Although modest about her style, wearing clothes that were comfortable and casual, she still remains to be relevant in this day of every-changing fashion. Her "little black dress" from Breakfast at Tiffany's, designed by Givenchy remains to be a  fashion staple inspiration in every fashionista's closet.

The Audrey Look

Audrey's style consisted of key staple fashion items. Firstly, was the her little black dress-you will want to purchase a black plain dress that you can accessorize with pearls as she kept her jewelery minimal, but pearls were one of her favorites. Her white blouse was a second staple that she made famous-buy one that is plain and ties at the front. Her style consisted of wearing both short and long scarves to accessorize her casual outfits, or to tie around  famous hats-you will want to purchase these scarves in neutral colors to match with a variety of outfits. A Pair of Flats is a must, or a pair of Ferragamo heels that she both adored to wear. To complete your Audrey wardrobe other style staples to consider are a black or white turtleneck, capris and 50s inspired skirts. For the finishing touch you need a pair of fabulous oversized black frame sunglasses.
