In my YA novel According to Audrey, the main character, Dove, is enamored with all things Audrey Hepburn. In large part, Dove is captivated by Audrey’s inner essence - Audrey’s confident air, her daring spirit… her carefree way with life. But one cannot admire Audrey Hepburn without also appreciating her iconic flair for outer style! Art, not fashion, is Dove’s main focus, but Dove is still enchanted - like many of us- with Audrey’s effortless sense of stylish beauty and timeless fashion.
Here are a few of Dove’s go-to Audrey fashion basics.
Black Ballet Flats
Audrey trained as a ballerina in her younger years and later loved pairing this ballet-inspired shoe with pants, capris, and dresses. Dove slips hers on with jeans all the time!
Pea Coat or Trenchcoat
The double-breasted buttons on these nautical-inspired coats give effortless structure and style to any outfit. Dove loves to hang out on the boat docks bundled in her navy pea coat.
Sleeveless Slip Dress
Simple necklines on these dresses make for an easy yet sophisticated Audrey look. This timeless classic is a chic addition to any wardrobe. Dove dons an emerald green, silky sleeveless dress for her high school graduation night.
Tiffany Blue Sweater
A simple crewneck sweater is the perfect Audrey-inspired top. Clean lines and understated elegance make this an easy, go-to piece. And Dove’s favorite sweater is Tiffany blue, of course!
