“For attractive lips…”

…speak with words of kindness. For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people. For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry. For beautiful hair, let a child run his or her fingers through it once a day. For poise, walk with the knowledge you’ll never walk alone.”

While the above quote was actually written by Sam Levenson, it’s often attributed to Audrey Hepburn as her “go-to” beauty advice. And it’s quite possibly some of the best beauty advice I wish we heard more of today.

Having just watched one of her later interviews in 1989 with Barbara Walters, I was struck (but perhaps not surprised) by just how humble and unassuming she really was, declaring several times there wasn’t anything particularly remarkable about her appearance, but rather she created a “look” that hopefully other women felt was attainable. A short hair cut. Sleeveless, midi dresses. A neck scarf. A bold brow. A red lip. And sunglasses. Always big sunglasses.

Of course, having followed the “Audrey” formula for years now, I wanted to round up some of my favorite Roman Holiday wardrobe pieces — many of which made it into this very shoot of ours, and many others that were top contenders when I was planning out our shoot. The beauty of each piece is that none of them should feel dated in anyway. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good bike short trend from time to time, but when it comes to the capsule wardrobe pieces that I’m going to hold onto for years, I’d much rather stick to classic silhouettes and fabrics that’ll stand the test of fleeting trends.

So without further adieu, here’s a taste of what I like to think Audrey might wear today during the summer months…keep scrolling to shop!

And don’t forget to check out Parts 1 and 2 of our Roman Holiday editorial — Part 4 is coming tomorrow! Grazie mille!
