Style Stalk: Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s

13 Mar

As a lover of all things clothing, I’m a little embarrassed to admit that it took me until my early twenties to finally get around to watching Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Although I don’t share the same affinity towards older films as my mother (minus Wizard of Oz and a slight crush on Cary Grant), I barely got beyond the opening credits before I was completely in love.

I think everyone can agree that the single best thing about the movie is that you could take any of Hepburn’s outfits right out of the movie and still, to this day look perfectly styled and fashion-forward. In the  same way a trip to Tiffany’s takes care of Holly’s anxiety (or, the “mean reds”) this movie gave me the comfort of knowing that there truly are classic staples that will carry you into the next 50 years, just like BAT has for the last half-century.

Classic Staples to Any Wardrobe:

  • A good trench coat. Holly Golightly rocked a khaki color, but I think a bright color is an easy update for a more modern look.
  • A little black dress. Hepburn practically invented this look. Wear an LBD with sandals and a scarf for a breezy, casual summer look, with heels and a statement necklace for a party, or with tights and boots for colder days.
  • High-waist belts.
  • Airy scarves.
  • Fitted black capris.
  • Flats.
