Audrey Hepburn was the epitome of style, sophistication, and beauty. Countless women through the years have looked to her as an example of how to dress well. So, if you want to look like a sophisticated lady rather than a tacky tramp on your prom night, you’d do well to take a leaf out of Audrey’s fashion book!
Here are some simple style tips you can take from the lovely Ms. Hepburn:
Show Off Your Natural Features
Audrey Hepburn was all about simple style., which allowed her natural features to steal the show. You can translate this to your prom outfit by choosing a simple style, which is pretty and elegant, but which does not draw attention away from your best features, whether they be your eyes, arms, legs or anything else.
There are lots of black dresses for prom 2017, which is good because you can’t beat black for a sophisticated prom night look. Think Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. She looked amazingly beautiful in nothing more than a simple black dress cautiously styled with pearls and a tiny tiara. Less is more and black is best!
Audrey Hepburn was the queen of accessorizing. Her outfits may have been simple, but she always styled them with a few little accessories to elevate them. Whether you choose a sparkling tiara, some simple evening gloves or a pretty clutch, your accessories will add an extra level of style and sophistication to your prom outfit.
Take Care of Your Hair
You could tell Audrey was a classy lady because she never had a hair out of place! If you want to follow in her footsteps, you need to create a pretty prom hairstyle that shows how much effort you’ve made. A simple updo offset with a tiara or pretty clips make for a sophisticated style, but feel free to experiment, Just remember that less is more!
Go Bold on the Lips
Audrey Hepburn was a big fan of the class red lipstick look, and this is a look that most women can pull off – you just have to find the right shade of red for you. Before prom, visit your local makeup store and try out as many shades of red as possible to find your perfect bold lip color. Be sure to check out other essential prom beauty products too!
Take a Risk
Of course, as much as Audrey was known for her simple, classic style, she was not afraid to take fashion risks either. She was often spotted out in bold prints or wearing rather unusual pieces. So, if you’re the type who likes to stand out, don’t be afraid to add some quirky touches to your outfit.
A Classic Purse
Don’t forget to accessorize your prom dress with a simple purse in a classic style to get the Audrey look.
Liner and Lashes
Ms. Hepburn had the most amazing lashes and you can too. Even if you weren’t naturally blessed, you could fake it for prom night by using false lashes and plenty of black liner to create an Audrey approved look.
Of course, the biggest lesson you can learn from Audrey is be yourself. She was a free spirit and someone who valued comfort. So, don’t be afraid to be yourself on your prom night. Audrey wouldn’t!
