jackie o, we loved her so!

19 Sep

hello, one year later! after much too long of a break, the haute list is back in full swing! i’ve finally settled into nyc, started a new job in fashion and continue to gather inspiration from the beautiful city and people around me.

today i’m inspired by jackie kennedy onassis, our 35th first lady. with the recent project runway challenge in mind (gotta love mondo’s look!) and katie holmes set to play mrs. kennedy in an upcoming miniseries, it’s only fitting to pay tribute to this timeless style icon.

i love (okay, am obsessed with) jackie’s signature pillbox hats, round-frame glasses and other accessories, like gloves, bows and pearls. let’s face it: us girly girls can only aspire to be as elegant and refined as this former first lady. even the outfit she donned to her late husband’s funeral was to die for (badum-chh!).

here are some ways you can infuse a little jackie into your wardrobe:

  • stand out! try gloves with your next cocktail dress, or add a stylish pair of pearls or colorful flats to a simple ensemble.
  • fall for wardrobe staples: try a sheath dress or trench coat for fall!
  • get a tailor! the right fit can make or break an outfit.
  • remember that less is more. jackie’s look was always simple and streamlined, with just a hint of drama.
