I mean, obviously.
If I had to pick the ONE woman who captures my aesthetic above them all, it would be – without a doubt – Audrey Hepburn.
My early adult years unfortunately coincided with the height of the 1980’s. So big hair, big shoulders and big belts pretty much “defined” my look back then. But as I got older, I noticed that – despite the occasional foray into a trend or two – I gravitated toward a look I like to call “tomboy chic”. Simple, timeless and often menswear (or neutral) leaning pieces:
Button front shirts.
No wonder I’ve looked to Audrey time and time again for outfits and style ideas.
(This sweater-pants ensemble from “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”? Pretty much sums up my idea of perfection.)
As you scroll through these images I think you’ll agree that these are looks that are hard to pin down by decade. And yet you’d never describe them as “dull” or “predictable” either. Just effortless, comfortable and chic.
At any age.
Best of all, as I’ve adopted the capsule wardrobe concept over the last few years I appreciate even more having a defined style that makes it easy to shop, edit and put together outfits that are 100% ME. And will be 3, 5, and even 10 years from now.
How right now is this look, for example?
