Style icon: Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis

As Miss Bouvier, she gave us preppy, debutante, horseriding chic. As Mrs Kennedy she gave us the bags, and the hair, and the First-Lady Fashion.

And later, as Mrs Onassis, she gave us the sunglasses, the head scarves and the kaftans. She was an all-time trendsetter, and along with Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly, she is one of my absolute favourite style icons…

Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis: July 28, 1929–May 19, 1994

Dresses and pillbox hats saw her a first-rate First Lady. Matching gloves in pastel hues and geometric shifts became her trademarks. Later it was her gypsy skirts and white jeans that became the epitome of Jackie O style.

Ultimately, the real style of Jackie O is not what she wore, but how she wore it: matchy-matchy single colour schemes, paired down glamour, always groomed, teaming Dior or Givenchy bottom-halves with T-shirts and priceless jewels.

She left us with a legacy. Thank you Jackie O.
