Style Icon: Audrey Heburn

Year after year, decade after decade, hundreds of "it girls" and "style icons" have filed in and out of magazines, media, movies, and red carpets. Many of these girls own the look that everyone of their time tried to recreate for themselves, but times change and trends fade, and with that, so do “It girls”. But sometimes, certain people can surpass the chains of time and trends and stay a style icon for decades. No matter where the fashion world goes, girls like this will ALWAYS be in style and ALWAYS be looked to for inspiration.

When I think of style icons, the first person that always comes to my mind is Audrey Hepburn. She was such an inspiring woman that my parents even named me after her! There was something so graceful and elegant about Audrey and the way she presented herself. She was pure class, and classy will NEVER go out of style. Classy is timeless.

I find it so easy to modernize the Hepburn look and add little touches of her charm to your day to day look. Big, huge sunnies one day, and ballet flats the next. Straight cigarette pants for a day on the town, and an LBD for the night. Audrey even said herself, “My look is attainable. Woman can look like Audrey Hepburn by buying the large sunglasses and the little sleeveless dresses.”

Audrey Hepburn is the girl that introduced the LBD to the mainstream. She was the first to rock the pieces of clothing that most girls of today’s time could never live without. Although during her time, she was a risk taker. She dressed completely how she wanted to and frankly, didn’t give a damn about what anyone else thought. Isn’t it so funny how  style once so revolutionary during her time, is now, and forever will be, a timeless look that designers will look to for inspiration for all the years to come? Audrey Hepburn is a beautiful style icon that will continue to be etched into fashionista’s minds for decades to come.

About me

I started Dressing Up In Daisies about four years ago for the purpose of sharing my opinions, ideas, and personal style on the internet, rather than keeping them bottled up in my head. In my first post on Dressing Up In Daisies, my then thirteen year old self said, “Fashion is about taking risks, and dressing up for yourself, and no one else. Ever since I was two years old, my favorite game to play has been dress up...and it still is. The amazing thing about this game is that you get to play it every single morning, so why not have some fun with it? Wear some massive heels, opt for the leopard coat, throw some daisies in your hair. Whatever your mood is that day.”

This statement is something I continue to stand by, and will for the rest of my existence. I believe it is important to show the world that fashion should celebrate the beauty in risk-taking and oddities, which vastly transcends the limitations of "trends" and other rules often imposed by members of the fashion industry.

I use my blog to connect to the world of fashion that I know I’ll be a part of one day. Feel free to leave comments with feedback, or click the "contact" link above to email me.
