Last week, I asked the fans of the Westfield Facebook page to vote for their favourite style icon to feature in this blog. Can you believe that the winner (by a landslide) was the breathtakingly beautiful and eternally stylish Audrey Hepburn? I can. After all, there’s a reason Audrey has been at the very top of our Style Icon List for decades now, and it all starts with one little world -timeless. It seems the entire female population (Facebook included) also shares her love of a “classic” personal style, stamped with clean shapes in simple shades and prints, worn with an effortless flare.
So how do we look this chic? To get Audrey’s trademark look, start with the staples of her wardrobe, including 7/8th or capri pants, crisp white shirts, full dresses with plenty of structure, chic ballet flats, monochromatic basics, timeless trench coats, dazzling jewellery, simple-yet-complementing makeup and big shades. Invest in these items – they are your building blocks, and you will have them forever. Then, you can spend less on your seasonal trend items that add your own personal pizazz, but probably won’t stand the test of time.
