Fashion icon inspired clothes from the high street

On this page, I am going to show you some clothes from the high street that are similar to the styles of Ingrid Bergman, Audrey Hepburn, Brigitte Bardot, Edie Sedgwick, Mary Quant, Debbie Harry and Kate Moss.

I wanted to see if these fashion icons really had made an impact on fashion so I went to modern shops such as Topshop, River Island and Marks and Spencers to find these items..

Ingrid Bergman

This Topshop dress reminds me of Ingrid Bergman's style, as it is smart and sophisticated in a classic black and white. I have combined it with white pearls; a favourite of Audrey Hepburns.

Audrey Hepburn

This shirt is also elegant and neat, it is similar to Ingrid Bergman's style if I paired it with a smart blazer but without, it resembles Audrey Hepburn's chic style. I also found a silk scarf which was one of Audrey's favourites - both of these are from Marks & Spencers.

Brigitte Bardot 

This look resembles Brigitte Bardot. One of Brigitte's favourite fashion statements was a feminine summer dress and this Topshop dress is perfect for her style. Brigitte also wore hats such as the one above to finish off her summer look.

 Edie Sedgwick

Edie Sedgwick loved wearing a stripy t-shirt and tights. I found this top in River Island and it reminded me of Edie straight away!

A check shirt was another one of Audrey Hepburn's favourite items - this one is from River Island

Mary  Quant

Mary Quant invented the bright coloured mini skirt! I really liked this red skirt from Topshop.


The shift dress has become timeless. It definitely reminded me of Mary Quant's style and the best thing is it can be dressed up or dressed down, and can be adapted to wear in any season!

Debbie Harry

Debbie Harry was a fan of slogan t-shirts and white shorts. I found these items in Topshop which shows Debbie's style is still around today!

Kate Moss

Kate Moss made the Alexander Mcqueen skull scarf popular - I found a similar high street version in River Island.

The following styles are similar to Kate Moss'. She has a very relaxed but well thought out style consisting of items such as denim jackets, shorts, loose t-shirts and scarves - all of these items are from Topshop and River Island.

So, after my search for clothing items inspired by the fashion icons I have focused on for my blog, I have discovered that the icons are still remembered in modern fashion! It shows the impact they have had on the industry and the influence they have on high street fashion.
