Audrey Hepburn is one of my style icons. Cliched, I know but sometime cliches are cliches for a reason. I'd describe my style as "Audrey Hepburn on an acid trip" meaning I tend to stick to fifties and sixties shapes but go crazy with the color. The school yearbook asked me that question; I couldn't use that quote so I said, "vintage with a twist'. Hepburn has a simple lady like style.Hepburn wore coats so well. While most envied the little black dress in Breakfast at Tiffany's I loved the orange coat. By loved I mean went on an extensive hunt for a similar coat and wound up with a nice orange pea coat. I realize they aren't the same but I'm still waiting for the perfect one. While the coats her characters wear are simple they have a striking detail like a bright color or stand collar that make them unique.Audrey would have loved this pink Anthropologie coat. The stand collar and color are very vintage inspired.
Trenches are wonderful and romantic. Just ask Holly Golightly. They are always in style. The khaki trench is classic and great for every occasion. The striped one is a daring choice.
