10 Fashion Tips To Learn From Audrey Hepburn



Audrey Hepburn was an actress who became the fashion and style icon of her time. Her style was loved by many and still, today, many, myself included, look up to her because of her fashion sense and style!


 Bold Red Lipstick


Whatever Audrey wore, she wore it well, and red lipstick was no exception. A dash of red lipstick can be bold while adding just the right amount of pop (especially if you’re wearing all black). You just have to make sure to find the right shade for your skin tone.

Cinched Waist


Audrey was often seen wearing an outfit with a cinched waist. Having a cinched waistline in an outfit helps accentuate the waist and emphasize feminine curves. All you have to do is add that cute belt over a cardigan or high-waisted skirt, and you’re set to go.




The famous over-sized sunglasses she wore in Breakfast at Tiffany’s were actually Ray-Bans. Looks like they’re not just for hipsters after all. I mean, if you’re a hipster, then by all means keep wearing them; they look great! It doesn’t mean that they can’t be a fun addition to an evening gown too, though.




Audrey Hepburn loved her hats and was seen wearing all types of hats throughout her lifetime. Sun hats, top hats, pillbox hats, boater hats and much more. I’m personally a fan of hats; they’re fun to polish-off an outfit, and they can cover up a bad hair day! With the frizzy hair I have, it’s a wonder why I don’t wear them more often. I personally love boater hats; they give a cute vintagey look to an outfit that I just can’t resist!


Collared Shirts


Audrey wore them often, and there’s a reason she was known as the fashion icon of her time. Collared shirts can be simple but they can also look incredibly chic if worn the right way. Nowadays, you can find all types of collared shirts, from sheer fabric to studded, laced or even bejeweled. You can never go wrong with a simple white button up collared shirt paired with a skirt and/or some jeans.



Ballet Flats


Audrey was always seen wearing flats: simple, comfortable, and  put-together. They were one of her favorite types of shoes to wear, and I don’t blame her, they keep the painful heel experiences away. Flats have the unique advantage of being dressed down with a casual outfit or dressed up with a more formal outfit, like the aforementioned little black dress.


All Black


You can never go wrong in an all black outfit, whether you’re doing an LBD or separates. Audrey knew that better than anyone else, and it was a signature look for Audrey, particularly from her movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Not only is black slimming, but it also has a sophistication about it that is great for any occasion.




Whether her stripes were on her dresses, basic tops or hats, Audrey looked great in nautical garb. The best part is that you can easily play around with this pattern through colors, width of the strip, and direction. I especially love when there’s a variation in size from thin to wide horizontal stripes in a basic top. You could even add a different pattern somewhere in your outfit, such as a floral print or polka dot, and they’ll complement each other well.

There’s nothing sexier in a woman than a little humor. There’s also nothing wrong with having a little fun and being a little out of the ordinary from time to time.


Musical Talent

So usually it’s the girls who are swooning over the guitar players or lead singers, but why can’t it be the other way around? Musical talent adds a little culture to your life, and it doesn’t have to be difficult. Stick to something as simple as a ukulele to start off with
