inspiration tuesday: we heart jackie kennedy, part 1

Leave a comment

she was one of our most memorable first ladies for a reason. jackie kennedy was simply lovely; but she wasn’t resigned to just the traditional role of her president husband’s silent partner. she was an integral part of john kennedy‘s presidential term; she lent her voice to political and social events throughout the early 1960s. a multi-lingual, highly educated young woman, she traveled extensively, during her term as first lady and also later on, encouraging the preservation of beauty, art, and history, domestically and around the globe.

her quiet strength was inspiring, but her public persona and style was what made jackie kennedy an icon. her simple and chic fashion was refreshing yet tasteful. bold pops of color and fabulous accessories ensured that she always looked amazing, and always stood out in a crowd. she inspired American women to don a-line sheaths, cleanly lined suits, and bright, fresh colors. typically in solids, she sometimes surprised in fun florals. yet she always rocked classic black, too. oversized sunglasses were a staple in her wardrobe. dressed up or down, she was often seen in glamorously oversized pearls. and of course the pillbox hat that she wore crowned upon her perfectly teased bouffant will always be hers.
