2020 fashion outfit: ballerina shoes in Audrey Hepburn looks
For spring summer 2020 ballet shoes are back in fashion. Here’s how to wear them following the outfits of the icon of style and elegance, Audrey Hepburn
Black sheath dress, a string of pearls and a pair of ballerinas. Who could it be if not you, Audrey Hepburn? The actress of Breakfast at Tiffany’s is discreet elegance icon, queen of bon ton, one of the few, if not the only, sophisticated lady of the 1900s. Yet her style has nothing to do with stiletto heels, necklines and too tight dresses.
Indeed his wardrobe, especially outside the set, is composed of essential clothes and accessories. Among these, the ones stand out dancers, a pair of shoes that have become symbol of a simple and refined style. It is no coincidence that Audrey Hepburn herself dictates these words to This Week Magazine in Philadelphia “Look for sobriety, avoiding eccentric details. It favors the quality of the garments rather than the quantity. Wear the ones that put you most comfortable and dress appropriately for the occasion“.
His favorites were those of Salvatore Ferragamo, created for her by the craftsman of Hollywood in 1954: a model with a rounded tip, of suede and almost low ground, to divert attention from the foot, considered “too long”. An elegant and clever trick that we can still adopt today, since the dancers are back in fashion.

THE Audrey Hepburn look they are also an example still valid for wearing these shoes in style in everyday life: the well-known actress wore them with black tapered trousers, wide skirts, colored coats, checkered dresses and peach trousers. He wore them on set (not to be taller than the stage mates, as happens in the film Sabrina) and also in your free time: an accessory that in a short time has become a symbol of refined elegance, without ostentation.
