“It’s Oscar time. That means dazzling gowns, tailored tuxes and … denim?
Yep! While it’s not often associated with the red carpet, iconic indigo has a definitive place in Hollywood when it comes to the films themselves. Since the 1950s, onscreen jeans have created a cinematic archive of popular styles over the years, setting trends as they record them.
When it comes to fashion icons for women, Audrey Hepburn is the penultimate clean, classic style inspiration–and we’ll still look to her for notes on how to pick our denim. We can totally imagine her wearing this collection of slim black pants, graphic printed jean trousers, high-waist shorts, and classic blue jeans. Add a preppy collared shirt, flats, a perfectly arched eyebrow, and you’ll get this look down pat.
