When you picture Marilyn Monroe, it's likely you envision her baring skin in a dripping sequin gown. However, when the blonde bombshell wasn't illuminating the screen or painting the town red, she was cozied up in classic American staples. Most often you could find Monroe in a fitted turtle neck or low-cut blouse, paired with a neutral pair of trousers and loafers. The key to keeping her basic look refined was the tailoring on each of the pieces, as they accentuated her famous curves.
It's hard to disassociate Audrey Hepburn with her Breakfast at Tiffany's character Holly Golightly, because they're simply cut from the same cloth. While we don't imagine Hepburn sleeping in jewels Ã la Golightly, she never saw the light of day without making sure she was perfectly outfitted from head to toe, whether it was a form-fitting skirt suit and heels, or a fabulous coat paired with a sophisticated hat and statement sunglasses.
