Steal Her Style: Audrey Hepburn

I think one of my favorite Audrey Hepburn quotes is this:  "I'm always in sweaters and pants.  I have very few good clothes.  I have to take care of them.  I take them off as soon as I get upstairs."  Knowing that the woman who practically invented the little black dress really preferred sporting lounge clothes makes me feel a bit better about my own lazy days in the fashion department.
I think many of us get so caught up in the glamorous outfits of Audrey's characters (like Holly Golightly and Princess Ann) that we think she has a somewhat unattainable style--but as you can see, that couldn't be further from the truth.  If you want to really dress like Audrey, you'll only need a few basic essentials:

It's pretty clear that if you are yearning to emulate Audrey's style, you should stick with the "simple sophistication" route.  Grab a solid oxford shirt (or even a sweater during cooler months), some patterned pants, and a practical-yet-stylish pair of shoes to gain the actress's effortlessly chic look.
Don't you wish other celebrities had such laid-back approaches to fashion?
