One of the things I hope to do over the holidays is go see Jackie. The trailer has me in awe and as someone who has not only always admired Jackie’s style but also was taught to revere her in boarding school (she went to Miss Porters as well and her name seems to always be attached to the school now!) I’m really interested in cracking the “perfect” exterior of this fashion icon– and I’ve heard the movie does that.
Her style, I think, is thought of as ladylike and classic, but Jackie had an edge. Yes, she was always appropriate and beautifully coiffed, but she certainly chose styles, especially as she aged, that were the slightest bit bold and avant-garde. Traditional with a twist.
And the woman sure loved leopard….
A classic “Jackie” look.
As she gracefully aged, her look got funkier and more of the moment too.
70’s Jackie was just as awesome as White House Jackie, in my opinion. :)
I like to imagine what a young Jackie would wear today. So here are a few outfits influenced by her timeless but interesting style!
