It’s time to channel your inner Audrey Hepburn!
While watching “Funny Face” last night, the one where Audrey plays a shop clerk turned fashion model, I couldn’t help but think of the influx of “grandma” styles taking over every store.
“Kitten” block heels, midi skirts, structured suits, knit shirts, top handle bags and even long sweaters/waistcoats have all made their way back to mainstream designer looks. Thankfully, as Audrey always demonstrated, there’s a way to pull off these trends without looking too much like your “Gan Gan” in a flashback photo.
Pair Midi Skirts with Off-the-Shoulder Tops and Cropped Looks.
Don’t be afraid to mix trends. To make sure you avoid looking like a 50s repeat, simply pair your latest buys with a longer skirt. A cropped top or off-the-shoulder shirt with a ruffled detail will make this more modest trend have some modern flair.
Zara flounce top / Topshop midi skirt / Pointed toe flat, $71 / Kate spade purse / Sun Buddies round sunglasses, $160 / Zero Gravity tech accessory
Dress Up Your Top-Handle Bags with Bold Accessories.
Not all purses with these straps are the same. Like everything else, they come in different designs, shapes, sizes and of course, prices. For solid accessories or ones that are cheaper with a little less flair, you can easily dress them up with a fun tassel/pom pom key chain. Or add your own style with those brooches you bought last season.
ZAC Zac Posen purse tote, $305 / River Island blue handbag $90/ Marc by Marc Jacobs brooch / Proenza Schouler pin brooch, $85 / Proenza Schouler brooch, $85 / Sara M Lyons enamel brooch / Christian Dior uv protection glasses / White House Black Market pure silk scarf / Marble MacBook Skin White / Fob key chain / River Island tech accessory, $14
Mix Low Block Heels with Cropped Bottoms for a Statement Look.
This one is very Audrey Hepburn, in my opinion! By mixing cropped pants (whether they be skinny, wide leg or flared) with block kitten heels, you get a fun combination that can easily be pulled off with any kind of style. Here’s one for your weekend escapades and another for work (just add a blazer).
Evening wear top, $25 / BCBGMAXAZRIA wide leg cropped trousers / Calvin klein footwear / Givenchy leather clutch / Kitsch island pink rhinestone earrings / Repossi hinged ring, $5,660 / Gold iphone case

When in Doubt, Use Denim and Sneakers to add Street Style-Worthy Flair.
Denim on denim as well as athleisure are both very much on-trend. So take advantage of this comfortable, casual style! When you’re not sure how to wear something, simply mix it with your favorite pair of jeans or some standout kicks. It will make all the difference!
Crop top / Red vest, $77 / Frame Denim skinny jeans, $240 / Nike Athletic shoes / Ted Baker clutch / Olivia Burton leather strap watch, $99 / Sigma Beauty lipstick
(Can you tell I’m loving crop tops?)
