With the famous romantic comedy ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ turning 50 this month, it’s not surprising to learn that America still loves the iconic leading lady and her fashion sense. Audrey Hepburn was the gorgeous pixie girl who won everyone’s heart and transformed every woman’s wardrobe.

This Autumn/ Winter, the runways were covered in mod style: peter pan necklines, neat knee length skirts and prim, waist cinching dresses. Don’t forget staples like the little black dress (which Ms. Hepburn made so famous), as well as a stylish pair of cat-eye sunglasses. With the return of the popular show Mad Men and the debut of Pan Am, both shows’ character’s show another inspirational source for the modern take on the classic silhouettes.

Transform these looks from retro to modern:

For a quick and easy retro-fix combine your classic black turtleneck, pumps and favorite dark skinny jeans.This Hepburn inspired look works best if you tuck your turtleneck into your skinnies to accentuate the feminine waistline.

Choose flats with some sparkle or a black turtleneck with a metallic sheen for a modern twist.

Espadrilles are a fun take on the pump and are great for summer!
