Style Icon Project: Audrey Hepburn in Sabrina


Love the look of Audrey Hepburn in Sabrina? While her fancy looks are worth fawning over, I’ve always loved her casual sailing look, so recreated it!

Happy Monday, darlings! I thought it might be fun to kick off the week with another installment of the Style Icon Project, this time based on my favorite look from Sabrina.



Sabrina is full of great fashion moments, both before and after Audrey Hepburn’s character visits Paris and has her jaw-dropping makeover. And while there are plenty of glamorous looks to swoon over, one of my favorites is the casual, cute ensemble Audrey wears when sailing. (I’ve especially always loved the outtakes taken on-set.)

What’s amazing is her timeless men’s-inspired plaid top and fresh white shorts look just as spectacular today as they did over 50 years ago.

See how I wore them for a trip to the high desert and find out how to get the look…

I started with a pair of white shorts that I’ve had in my closet for ages.

Next, I added a vintage plaid top that I found at Angel View Thrift Mart in Yucca Valley and vintage white sandals.

Circular earrings, a pop of color on your pout, and a slight pop of the collar and a girl is ready for sailing…or a day of shopping with friends…or playing records with your sweetheart.

What’s great is that a plaid shirt is the perfect summer-into-fall piece and can even be worn year-round.


Love this look too? Here’s how you can get the look:


PLAID SHIRT: similar

(Make like Audrey and wrap it around your waist and tie it in a knot in the back (or front!)
