Audrey Hepburn’s secrets of Style

Which are the key elements of stylish women? Even though it’s hard to define exactly what style is, many influential people have given their interpretation.

I believe style has a lot to do with confidence, elegance, sophistication, good taste, knowing who you are and what suits you.

Try to maximize what you have.

I love Audrey Hepburn’s style. It’s so relevant even today.

One of the explanations given for Audrey Hepburn’s unique and superb style is that she stuck to a look that worked for her body type and her temperament her whole life.  Her style was also timeless and defined by minimalism and elegance.

The British actress, model, dancer, humanitarian and fashion icon still  tops the lists of most stylish women of the 20th century.


Secrets of style


  1. Underdress instead of overdress.
  2. Understand what works for you.
  3. Be good at accessorizing.
  4. Maximize what you have.

Famous style quotes


“Style is knowing who you are, what you want to say, and not giving a damn.” Gore Vidal, American writer.

John Fairchild, publisher and editor said “Style” is an expression of individualism mixed with charisma. Fashion is something that comes after style.” 

“What is style? It is an effortless confidence in being yourself, it is a way of putting yourself together according to your mood and what you want to project. Personal style appears to come naturally for some, but for others it can take a while to find it!” Diane van Furstenberg, designer.
