This week, I’m posting a series of posts celebrating and appreciating Audrey Hepburn’s enduring style inspiration. This series was inspired by a combination of factors:
- my new pixie haircut
- my silver drop hoop earrings from the set that I recently received as an early birthday gift from my mom (these earrings are reproductions of the ones Audrey wore while filming Sabrina)
- my enduring love of Audrey Hepburn’s iconic style

Next in this mini-series of inspiration is an outfit inspired by a costume that Audrey Hepburn wore in the film Sabrina, a casual button-front plaid shirt, shorts, and slides combo. There are lots of photos, film stills as well as behind-the-scenes publicity shots, of Audrey in this casual outfit, but I was particularly drawn to this little-seen photo of her in this outfit beside a leafy lattice work, shot in and around her apartment in 1954.
How did I make this outfit my own?
It’s clear that Audrey — and/or Edith Head, the lead designer on the Sabrina set — has wrapped a button-front plaid shirt around her waist, to showcase how tiny her waist was. I simply knotted one of my plaid button-front shirts in front, but I did pop the collar. I also am wearing longer shorts than she wore, as well as slingback wedges, rather than the wedge mules she sported.
And, of course, one last shot in full color! 😀
Hope y’all enjoyed this second of three Audrey Hepburn inspiration posts this week! Stay tuned for one more…
