Timeless Style Icon: Katharine Hepburn


Born: May 12th, 1907

Why We Love Her: She was a rebel at a time where women were supposed to be pretty, soft-spoken, and above all, obedient. Her wit was as sharp as her cheekbones, and she was unapologetically bold in every area of her life - from her nontraditional romantic choices ("If you want to sacrifice the admiration of many men for the criticism of one," she said, "then go ahead, get married.") to her borrowed-from-the-boys wardrobe.



Signature Looks: Jackets with oversized collars, wide-leg trousers, belts, trench coats, shirt dresses, and the occasional show-stopping gown.



What Makes Her Style Timeless: Hepburn's penchant for menswear might have garnered the most attention, but it was the impeccable tailoring of everything she wore that made her look sharp, polished, understatedly sexy, and eternally stylish.

For a thoroughly Hepburn-esque look, pair it with high-waisted trousers and a black leather belt. Then go take over the world, just like Katharine.


"If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun."
