...Audrey Hepburn, circa 1955
While most people picture Audrey Hepburn as the celebrated Holly Golightly in her little black dress that gave birth to the Little Black Dress, to me, there's something so much more appealingly classic about her real-life style. The connoisseur of striped boatnecks and cigarette pants, Audrey's everyday ensembles (though not Givenchy like her movie ones) were every bit as attainable as they were timeless and understated. But that isn't to say they weren't sportive to boot. Just take a cue from this mid-century snapshot of the icon on a bicycle; four simple pieces, one flawless outfit. If only it were that easy to achieve her dazzling, elfin looks as well.
