Breakfast at Tiffany's inspired outfit
I love Audrey Hepburn. She is my favourite screen siren, and if I could capture but an ounce of her grace and elegance, I'd be immensely happy! Of her films, Breakfast at Tiffany's is probably the most well-known and best-loved. It's a charming film set with gorgeous gowns, jewels and wit; all running alongside the story of 'two drifters' - lost souls trying to find their place and way in the world.
As the 60s are very much the du jour of fashion at the moment, what better time to look to Audrey for some fashion inspiration? This outfit would be perfect for a fancy party, or for those of you who spend their days wishing they were Holly Golightly!

Start with a classic black satin shift dress - with a neckline reminiscent of that Givenchy gown - a reasonable £38 from Topshop; and add masses of chunky faux pearls, just £18 from M&S. Pop on some vintage-styled earrings, £5 from M&S; and don't forget your opera gloves! These Swarovski-studded satin lovelies are £95 from from Cornelia James. Be the belle of the ball in this stunning brocade coat, £95 from Wallis, and add these fantastic Mary Janes from Monsoon for £40, which are practically perfect in every way! Finally, it wouldn't be a Breakfast at Tiffany's inspired outfit without some big oversized sunnies - these square sunglasses from ASOS are just £10 and will top the look off nicely!
