Our Favorite Vintage Fashion Icons

Tracie Pfrogner

Posted on August 28 2018

Everyone can remember that nostalgic feeling you get while watching Audrey Hepburn dressed as Holly Golightly strolling down Fifth Avenue in the early morning while the solemn notes of “Moon River” play in the background. Between the oversized Ray Ban sunglasses, huge pearl necklace, and iconic black dress, there was so much fashion to love from Breakfast at Tiffany’s. And as designer Hubert Givenchy dressed Audrey Hepburn during the majority of her film career, it is no surprise that Audrey became the fashion icon that she still is today. So many wonderful women from the past have inspired the way we dress today. Today we’ll be sharing some of our favorite vintage fashion icons and how you can achieve their iconic looks.

Audrey Hepburn
This is such an easy look to recreate, grab your little black dress, a pair of kitten heels, and a statement necklace and you’re ready to dance the night away.

Marilyn Monroe
Love your curves in form-fitting dresses and don’t forget your red lipstick!

Grace Kelly
Next time you’re running to the grocery store feel free to wrap a Hermes scarf around your head to shield yourself from the paparazzi! Grace Kelly was also a huge fan of classic pieces like A-line skirts and crisp button-up shirts.

Diana Ross
Go bold and channel your inner dancing queen with some sparkle and statement jewelry.

Jane Birkin
Keep it simple just like the French with your favorite pair of jeans and a white tee. And of course don’t forget your Birkin Bag!

Elizabeth Taylor
Dress in jewel tones and never forget to accessorize.

Jackie Kennedy
Channel your inner first lady with ladylike dresses in pastel hues and classic prints. A classic bag that matches your pumps is a must!
