Be iconic in all situations

While trends may change with each new season, decade and even era, one thing we can always rely on is iconic fashion.  Iconic fashion allows us to not only wear, but support looks that made an impact in history.  Much of fashion history’s notable looks in fact come from fictional character’s from famous films.  There are many examples to look to for icon fashion that can inspire us even today:

Audrey Hepburn: Breakfast at Tiffany’s

The Little Black Dress is one of fashion’s most iconic pieces. First fashioned by Coco Chanel and made famous by darling Audrey Hepburn, every woman is advised to own a LBD.  Not only is the look appropriate for almost every occasion, but it continues to flatter different shapes and sizes.
