Ahh, Jackie Kennedy Onassis. A true all-American style legend. Her famous wardrobe, elegance, grace, and beauty are just a few of the things that drew the world in. Best known as the First Lady to President John F. Kennedy, the nation fell in love with Jackie and their two children, John Jr. and Caroline, almost instantly. A devoted mother and role model to many, during her years in the White House, Jackie was known for her bright, solid-colored dresses and suits. During the Onassis years, her take on fashion was more jet-set chic. As we look back here, we notice Jackie’s style was actually quite simple and classic, usually consisting of black and white, which is why it’s perhaps still imitated so many years later. Think about it: Her trademark pieces, such as the oversized “Jackie-O” sunglasses, head scarves, three-string pearls, and her pillbox hat, all still have a place in fashion. Now, enough talking, let’s take a stroll down memory lane and get all nostalgic about one of our biggest Mother Style Icons.
