Fashion Icon: Jackie O


Jacqueline Kennedy (28.07.1929 – 19.05.1994) was the wife, and First Lady of John F. Kennedy.

She brought style and glamour to the White House, enchanting everyone she came across.

Renowned for her impeccable fashion sense she is party credited to introducing and inspiring the country to take not of French fashion houses like Chanel and Givenchy.




Her love of colours, matching pillbox hats and oversized sunglasses are still referred to today.

Whether on official business supporting her husband or holidaying with her family she maintained her chic wardrobe right until her death in 1994.

Some have described her as a pioneer of fashion – to this day her most iconic outfit registers clearly in everybody’s minds – even those born over recent decades…her pink Chanel suit and matching pillbox hat ensemble of course. It’ s this outfit that has become sysnoymous with her husband’s assignation.

1. Skater dress by Dorothy Perkins – Jackie loved the high neckline, capped sleeves and nipped in waist of this style, which she always wore gracefully to her knees – pick up a pastel pink or orange one with a high-shine finish for a Jackie O seal of approval

2. The double breasted coat or mac was another iconic pieces of Miss O’s wardrobe and this coat by South at has Jackie written all over it

3. Never one for overdoing it in heels, these leather ballet pumps by Zara have a distinctly Jackie square toe for added chic

4. Oversized sunglasses by Ray-Ban are even dedicated to the icon of sunnies with their catchy ‘Jackie Ohh’ name
