Why do we love Audrey Hepburn’s style? Let us count the ways: She’s the queen of gamine charm, what she wore a half century ago is still in style, and nobody rivals her ability to look effortlessly chic and polished. The combination of her heartwarming personality and effortless fashion sense is what has made her such an icon over the years—one with a wardrobe that is timeless and classic beyond belief.

Some of our favorite Hepburn staples include slim black pants, ballet flats, and oversize button-downs. The aforementioned pieces—including the additional ones we shopped out for you—are ones everyone should have in their wardrobe. Essentials such as these aid in stress-free wardrobe planning day in and day out. We could go on and on, but we think you’d rather get to admiring Hepburn and shopping her utterly enduring style. Keep scrolling to start crafting your own Hepburn-approved look.
