words kill, words give life

style inspiration – Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Posted in fashion, movies and television by Kaitlin on November 11, 2009

Holly Golightly’s (Audrey Hepburn) little black dresses in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” have long been lauded as a fashion staple. Unfortunately, other items in her wardrobe are sometimes overlooked. Below I pick out my favorite non-LBD Golightly  looks.



1. Never has sleepwear looked so chic. With a tuxedo shirt, turquoise eye mask and tasseled earplugs, Holly Golightly epitomized the glamorous morning after.

2. Even the glamorous need to relax. A gray sweatshirt and jeans were Holly’s go to leisurewear. Simplicity keeps this look far from neon Juicy Couture.

3. Ms. Golightly definitely wasn’t afraid of color. She dared to steal in an orange coat and successfully pulled off wall-to-wall pink.

Maybe we would all benefit from letting go and not taking ourselves to seriously. And the easiest place to start may be with our wardrobe.
