Audrey Inspired: Seaside Stripes

Audrey Hepburn is one of our favorite style icons—her look is timeless and as relevant today as it was when she first appeared on the scene in the 50s. Although she’s most famous for her incredible Givenchy gowns, her casual style is just as worthy of emulating. One part classic preppy and one part French gamine, seaside Breton stripes were a huge part of her simple and elegant day-to-day style.

The Luxe Tote

Apr 4 Bags1

With the rising popularity of mini bags and clutches, we’ve seen a surge in bags roomy enough to put your other bag in, plus the rest of your essentials! These totes are so much more than your basic shopper—they’re elevated to luxury status with quality details, materials, and construction.

Get the look: Louis Vuitton, Chloe

The Backpack

Apr 4 Bags2

Backpacks are a perennial style favorite, for all ages and all styles. Find an updated version in leather or patterned fabric, or stick with the classic brights.

The Structured Bag

Apr 3 Bags1

The structured bag is a callback to retro ladylike styles. It’s meant to be carried in your hand or at your wrist, for the life none of us actually have, but all wish we did! Look for pieces with elegant details and molded handles, in spring pastels or vibrant colorblocking.

Get the look: Delvaux, Celine

The Textured Bag

Apr 3 Bags2

This season, designers are using unique and creative textural treatments to stand out. Bags large and small are embossed, woven, embroidered, and quilted, in mixed media and unusual materials.

Get the look: Paule Ka, Jamin Kuech

The Pretty Pump

Apr 1 Shoes1

As platforms rise on other shoes, they’ve all but disappeared from pumps, which are making a return to the simple, ladylike styles of the 60s. At heights ranging from kitten heels to sky-high stilettos, these exude accessible elegance.

Get the look: Ferragamo, Manolo Blahnik

The Oxford

Apr 1 Shoes2

The menswear trend is moving down to the feet, with oxfords and brogues galore, embellished with piping, perforation, and, of course, color! They’re the perfect companion to other menswear-inspired pieces, like the classic boyfriend jean.

Get the look: Anthropologie, Robert Clergerie

The City Sandal

Mar 31 Shoes1

It’s the kind of sandal that can stand up to a day in your busy life, sturdier and more covered up than your basic flip-flop. The looks range from gladiators to cut-out boots.

Get the look: Celine, Marni

The Spring Boot

Mar 31 Shoes2

We’re seeing more boots for spring and summer than we have in years past. In general, they’re lighter and brighter than boots you’d see in fall or winter. Elevate the look with studs, fringe, or colorful details.

Get the look: Miu Miu, Prada
