You've seen her in ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s,’ ‘Roman Holiday,’ ‘Funny Face,’ and so many more. She was born in 1924 in Belgium and was an actress and humanitarian. We loved her for her acting and her stunning and unique style through the ages. Audrey Hepburn had a unique style with any outfit she featured. She could pull off anything from a popped collar and penny loafers to a wide-brimmed hat and a bold lip. Her outfits are timeless and are the epitome of any common day preppy looks. We have learned a lot from her and can't wait to share them with you. Here we go, tips and tricks from Audrey Hepburn's preppy looks.


It’s time to borrow from the boys! Hepburn was known for her takes on traditional men looks. She would wear a blazer, bowtie or a mean pair of penny loafers. She would step out of the dorm and make it cute, she was also known for a printed cropped pants. Not only are you adding a feminine touch, but you also look great no matter what. In the picture above, the red theme goes perfectly from her blazer to her loafers. Choose your color today and seize the day styling!


Did you know that collared shirts never go out of style? Well, that could never be truer than right now.  What better way to top off the perfect outfit than with a plain white collared shirt. It goes great with a pair of striped capris which would make for a great daytime look. It's also all about the light hair and makeup. The best way to class up a look is with Audrey Hepburn’s winged eyeliner. Definitely get extra points for a popped collar!


Add the bold lip. Unique lip color can instantly make an outfit more striking and extra special to you, anywhere you go. Whether your sporting a Lily dress or a casual pair of jeans and Vineyard Vines top, a bold lip will show off your sense of style. As Audrey Hepburn would do, dress simple and class it up with unique makeup, simple hair, and your most favorite accessories. 


Do you know what girl must have at all times? Her purse, maybe a scarf, but most importantly a gorgeous pair of oversized sunglasses! When it is time to hide from the paparazzi, this is the perfect thing to always have on you! (And, we know you all have a favorite pair or two). In one of Hepburn's most famous movie, Breakfast at Tiffany's, she played a character, Holly Golightly, who was a young woman living in New York City. She always had her sunglasses on her. She owned large, tortoiseshell sunglasses with a tinted green lense. Today, these sunglasses are still in style. So let me ask, what are you waiting for?
