Shop It to Me: Audrey Hepburn's Gamine Style

As a female on planet Earth, I of course love and admire the sophisticated elegance of Audrey Hepburn. I always strive to look like her in some capacity, but it never quite comes off. I'm always too all over the place -- my hair never looks as sleek, my clothes are always too rumpled, and my eyebrows are too blonde to ever be that striking. One of my favorite looks is the gamine chic look that was popular on waif types like Audrey and Jean Seberg in the 1950s and 1960s. I went over to Van Mildert to shop the look for myself. 

I really love this updated version of the classic striped boatneck top for its sheer paneling and adorable Peter Pan collar -- it's the best way to get Audrey's look while still being very on-trend. I would pair the top with some dark, slim-legged trousers to get the look of Audrey's cigarette pants. The subtle pattern on these pants make for an interesting but not overwhelming detail. Because the rest of the look is so understated, I would go a bit crazy on shoes. A pair of classic loafers done in a crazy leopard print fit the bill perfectly. Add some thick cat eye-style liner, some nude lipstick and maybe a copy of something by Sartre, and you've got an Audrey-approved gamine chic look!
