Classic style icon Katharine Hepburn was the master of the sophisticated tailored look. Her vintage style can be the perfect inspiration for a modern woman’s wardrobe because it is both glamorous and comfortable.
Full disclosure: I have never seen a Katharine Hepburn movie!
I know! Even though I love the aesthetic of the 1940s – 1960s I have never been much of vintage movie buff. I am trying to remedy this by going through the old features on Netflix, but so far Katharine Hepburn has eluded me.
I have always admired her tailored style, but it is a bit too precise and refined for me. She wasn’t one for lots of pattern or floral prints, which is where my fashion sensibilities lie. With that said, I do appreciate the fact she had her own very modern sense of style and didn’t let others tell her what she needed to wear. Her clothing was both comfortable and stylish, which is what I believe is the best thing to wear as a glamorous housewife.
Here are some modern examples of what I believe Ms. Hepburn would wear if she were still alive today. Her clothing is now considered a classic style and I believe looks fresh and stylish no matter what decade we might be in.
