How To Get The Iconic 'Breakfast At Tiffany's' Look On A Budget

There are a few different options on how to snag Birthday Girl Audrey Hepburn's Breakfast At Tiffany's Look. 

I'm sure you know the one...

If you'd like to snag the look, there's 2 ways you can go about this:

 

1: The Costume Dress from Chasing Fireflies

I don't know what the fabric is, but it's identical to the look, back and front.

 

2: Take Some Liberties With The Style - Like This Dress From Macy's 

It's not a scoop neck, but it still does have an elegant flair to it, and goes down far enough in the back and front to give the same look and character of the dress. You need to be able to rock those pearls so that's the most important part!

3: Get gloves on the cheap - Like these from Amazon!

You don't have to overdo it on the gloves. Honestly. Get some that will stay together, but won't break the bank. These are 90% polyester, 10% spandex. Plus, this pack comes with a pair of white ones too, in case you're feeling like you want to switch it up or use it for another outfit.

 

4: Go For The Pearl - Like These From Charming Charlie!

Sure, you probably can't do the whole "front and back" thing unless you find an amazing strand of pearls, but this will do! And it won't break your bank!

 

5: The Tiara / Headpiece - Like This One From Charming Charlie!

If you're doing this for an everyday look, I would suggest leaving out the tiara. But if you're doing this for a costume, or if you're doing this for maybe Prom? Get that tiara, girlfriend!

 

6: And finally, Sunglasses - and let's update those to Mirrored Sunglasses!

We're pretty sure that Audrey would approve of this.
