Audrey Hepburn’s Classic Style Pieces Are Still Relevant Today

by

Audrey Hepburn has long been recognized as a film icon, as well as a fashion icon. Audrey Hepburn’s classic style was elegant and feminine. Making her mark in the film world, Hepburn was the first actress to win an Academy Award, a Golden Globe, and a BAFTA for a single role in a film. That film was 1952’s Roman Holiday, which aided in establishing her career as a film star. She continued to grace the silver screen with her presence in performances in films such as My Fair Lady, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and Sabrina. As of August 17, a new exhibition of Audrey Hepburn photographs are on display from Beyond the Screen, an exhibition showing at London’s Proud Central gallery. The photos showcase the actress with some of her iconic fashion statements.

Audrey Hepburn’s Classic Style Pieces

The Hepburn photos in the Beyond the Screen exhibition were taken by Terry O’Neill, Norman Parkinson, and Bob Willoughby, to name a few. The pieces of note? Oversized white sunglasses, cable knit jumpers, Beatnik coats, little pink dresses, and men’s white collared shirts. These 1950s-60s styles are classics thanks to the subtle grace with which the actress wore them. Other female stars of the time contributed to new trends, such as Marilyn Monroe and Grace Kelly. But Hepburn arguably holds her own unique spot as a past trendsetter.

Traditionally, wearing gingham was limited to summer, but now we are seeing this pattern appear all year long. It works well as a transition piece between seasons because it includes white and neutral colors like black or navy that can be paired with most solids. Any statement necklace or pair of tassel earrings are sure to stand out alongside checkered gingham items. From preppy to trendy looks, gingham is one of the most versatile pieces to style. Check out our 5 ways to style gingham! 

Classic Look

With so many cute looks in mind, choosing just ways to style gingham is difficult!  Preppy looks, one of the most classic, often include gingham patterns. From collared dresses to blazers, gingham makes many appearances in the preppy style including this look. A classic gingham shift dress paired with a navy blue cable knit sweater and Jack Rogers sandals is the perfect combination of elegant and stylish.

Casual Look

Since gingham is a bold print, it doesn’t require many accessories. A pair of gingham pants can be paired with a scoop neck neutral sweater and oxford shoes for a simple, yet put together look. Adding a pair of sunglasses or a racerback bra can add extra touches to this casual outfit without taking away from the pants.

While this look may not be for everyone, print mixing with gingham is an option. The colors in the top compliment the pink gingham well and give this look a vintage vibe. This look is perfect for the spring and summer because it is so colorful and bright.

Summer Look

Since summer is one of the most popular seasons to wear gingham, styling a colorful top like this one is celebrated. Besides dark navy and black, gingham also comes in pastel or bright colors. This pastel blue and white gingham off the shoulder top compliments a pair of white jeans nicely and requires minimal accessories, maybe just a simple necklace or bracelet.

Layered Look

Styling gingham with several layers makes for a cozy fall or winter outfit. The navy and white gingham top pops underneath the tan sweater and alongside the matching purse. In this case, the monogrammed necklace, watch and bracelets work well as fun accessories and add to the ambiance of this outfit. Choosing white jeans versus regular blue jeans is another option to make the gingham top stand out more.
