The Kennedy’s were probably the closest America has ever gotten to having a royal family, with Jackie widely considered to be one of the most iconic First Ladies in US history. Long before Michelle Obama entered the White House, Jackie was leaving her stamp on the fashion world and establishing high expectations for the wardrobes of future First Ladies. Decades on and she’s still a style icon…
We know, we know – it’s still only mid-August but with September just around the corner, we can’t help but start thinking about our autumnal looks. Get a lesson in layering from Jackie in a high neck top and cosy coat combo, the base of the outfit adds a subtle pop of colour while the oversized silhouette creates a snug feel – perfect for beating the chill.
This easy, breezy look isn’t what automatically springs to mind when you picture 80’s fashion but the loose fabrics create the ideal get-up for summer. Follow her lead and finish off the outfit with a statement handbag to elevate the minimal look!
From high end to high-street, two pieces are currently available in a wide spectrum of hues thanks to their popularity after being spotted on the likes of Cara Delevingne and Alexa Chung. Keep it classic like Jackie in a fresh white duo – just avoid red wine at all costs!
If you’re a fan of oversized sunnies, you have Jackie to thank for popularising the trend! Our go-to shades for hiding a hangover and/or lack of sleep were Jackie’s favourite’s for a day to day basis. She may have worn this outfit in the 70’s, but we’d still happily make room in our wardrobe for her chunky belt and polka dot maxi skirt.
A camel coat and black turtleneck will always be wardrobe staples so when they’re worn together, you’ve got yourself an instantly timeless look! If you fancy giving the combo a modern touch, do so via your accessories á la Jackie in her XXL sunnies, chain bag and beige gloves.
