living in: breakfast at tiffany’s

by amym

That Breakfast at Tiffany’s is a stylish movie is probably the worst kept secret in the world. Just wander the streets on Halloween, and you’re likely to bump into several Holly Golightlys along the way. But beyond the cigarette holder and pearl necklace are some pretty amazing elements that are equally deserving of iconic status. — Amy M.

Holly’s girl about town attitude and New York’s early sixties energy make a pair worthy of intense imitation. Whether her bare but quirky apartment or her outlandish but classic accessories, Holly pulled it off with panache. There is no recreating Audrey Hepburn’s insane charm, but let’s all try. Worst case scenario? We’ll just put “Moon River” on repeat and enjoy the ride.
