Pumps

Audrey was really tall, so she stuck to flats or kitten heels. Ballet pumps, if worn correctly, can give an outfit a glamorous appearance. Try to opt for plain ones with less or no embellishment.

LBD

Black elongates and slims down any body type. Wear a black dress and its a party (or Breakfast At Tiffany’s). Choose an elegant style with a length that sits on the knee.

Gloves

Gloves serve a dual purpose: making an ensemble look uber chic and protecting your kitty paws from harsh UV rays. Why not?

Choker

A choker elongates the neck and it doesn’t clash with the neckline of an outfit. Stick to classic styles that are simple in design and monochromatic.
