Audrey Hepburn is an icon and inspiration whose style is still emulated across the world. She is known for her effortless charm, care and elegance. Audrey is without a doubt one of the most beloved movie stars.
So how can you be like Audrey Hepburn? Not everyone can fly to Italy for a Roman Holiday or take a trip to New York to have Breakfast at Tiffany’s.  But you can take a step in Audrey stylish shoes and learn how to emulate Audrey Hepburn's style. It can be quick and simple, and you might already have some of these items at home.

Here are 5 items that will make you look like Audrey Hepburn on the outside.

  1. Statement Sunglasses

You don’t have to wear Givenchy to look like Audrey Hepburn! The simplest and most affordable item can transform your look. A pair of cat-eyed sunglasses is the Audrey accessory most remembered in Breakfast at Tiffany’s(after the pearls of course!)

You can buy a pair of cat-eyed tortoise shell sunglasses from virtually anywhere including Amazonand Primark. There are also quality replicas from Oliver Goldsmithand the more affordable Utopiat. Utopiat has the biggest collection of Audrey Hepburn replica clothes and accessories.

I bought mine from Primark and I feel like Holly Golightly whenever I wear them! Wear your sunglasses with your hair in a chignon for that glamorous movie star look.

  1. Scarf

Another great, versatile accessory is a scarf. A headscarf is a must-have for vintage fans and great for hiding a bad hair-day! Audrey often wore her headscarf knot with her bold sunglasses to make the look chic yet effortless.

Another way of wearing the scarf is as a neckerchief to replicate Audrey’s look in Roman Holiday. A scarf knot around your neck is much more casual, carefree and European just like Audrey’s character Princess Ann.

A scarf can also be used as a hairband, or a longer length could work as a stylish belt. Etsy offers different styles and patterns of scarves. For replicas of the scarf worn by Audrey in Roman Holiday look no further than Utopiator Amazon.

“When I wear a silk scarf I never feel so definitely like a woman, a beautiful woman.” — Audrey Hepburn

  1. Hat

Audrey wore a variety of hats throughout her career including chiffon turbans and straw/woven hats to add a little extra to her personal, minimalist style. In her photoshoots and films, Audrey donned glamorous, decorated hats most famously in Breakfast at Tiffany’sand My Fair Lady.

In CharadeAudrey wore pillbox hatsof different patterns and colours which adds class to any look! In Sabrina,she worea chiffon turban to look like a sophisticated European woman. My Fair Ladywas all about the feathered Kentucky Derby hat.

The most famous Audrey hat of all is the oversized Chapeu Du Matin from my favourite film of all time, Breakfast at Tiffany’s. The wide-brimmed hat decorated with a long silk scarf is a statement piece that adds class, elegance and glamour to any outfit.

Finding a hat like this is rare and difficult to find despite its timelessness. Utopiatspent two years creating a replica of the Holly Oversized Premium Wool Hatwhich is even available in different colours! There’s also a lighter, Holiday Hatto wear comfortably in Summer.

The other, more subtle but no less chic hat available at Utopiat is the Holly Golightly Feather Hatalso from Breakfast at Tiffany’s. This hat is a little bit more formal but adds class to any occasion. This hat is made with 100% natural wool with vegan fur and duck feathers.

  1. Sleepwear

There is more than one item to choose from here in order to look and feel like Audrey Hepburn while you sleep! You can dream… while you wear the Holly Golightly nightwear sleep set.

It’s not just during the day that Audrey looks amazing. In Breakfast at Tiffany’s, we see Holly Golightly wake up in the morning wearing an outfit that makes us so envious! The tuxedo shirt, Tiffany’s blue eye maskand tassel earplugsmake up the most creative sleepwear of all time!

The Holly Iconic Sleep Setfrom Utopiat is to die for! Each item is made with quality and care and are exact replicas of those in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Owning just one of these items makes you feel like Audrey.

It’s the outfit I loved the most when I first watched Breakfast at Tiffany’s. I have the complete set as well as the lavender scented eye pillow to wear under the eye mask which has light blocking and healing properties for additional relaxation.

There are a variety of colours, a choice between tassled earplugs or earrings to bring the outfit to life during the day or as a costume! Individually, these items are reasonably priced for their quality and rarity. But its more affordable to buy the Audrey gift-set for the entire ensemble.

  1. Little Black Dress

I can’t talk about Audrey’s iconic style without mentioning the LBD. The ‘little black dress’ in the opening scene of Breakfast at Tiffany’s is considered to be one of the most iconic items of clothing in the history of the twentieth century.

In fact, the whole outfit is legendary, consisting of gloves, black heels and statement pearls and diamonds. The black Givenchy dress is so trendy but it is virtually impossible to find except as a fancy dresscostume.

A replica of the LBD as well as the accessories that make up the outfit is only available at Utopiat. The Breakfast at Tiffany’s Holly Iconic Black Dressfrom Utopiat is made from cotton and I’ve been told by others that it is sheer quality and class. It will never go out of style and is worth the price.

However a more affordable LBD is the one Holly Golightly wore in the party scene in Breakfast at Tiffany’s.This tassel dress is a classic example of an LBD and is perfect for any occasion. It’s easy to accessorise and combine with any colours and hairstyle.
