SUMMER VINTAGE: Jackie Kennedy

Get inspired by the summer style of one of the most unforgettable style icons of all time.

Jackie Kennedy managed to set a new standard for true glamour and class. Her simple approach to clothes and beauty proved that fashion didn’t have to be elitist and decadent anymore. She inspired every woman with her unique sense of style and, of course, her sartorial choices.

 

With Diana Vreeland on her side -at the beginning-, she became confident enough and brought out her true self. From everyday appearances to the most formal events, Jackie managed to look effortless and impeccable.

 

Summer must have been one of her most favorite seasons of the year, as she always looked fabulous. Little dresses, total white, three-quarter sleeves, big sunglasses, jeweled sandals and silk scarves were her trademarks.

 

Today, nine years after her passing away and almost half a century after her legendary excursions on Capri and the rest of the Mediterranean sea, she continues to inspire us in creating our own Jackie-inspired looks.
