Coming off January which was a month of blogs about Murphy, Super Bowl, Maxie, 30-Day Abs, Dressing like Olivia Pope, and How to have a lovely day! Not too much about style, other than Olivia Pope. So I thought I’d highlight some “style tips” from Jackie Kennedy, who has always been one of my style icons. This is Dressed to a T, btw. And again, I do appreciate those who tell me they enjoy my blogs when they are more about “my life”, but I prefer blogs Not about “my life”. #keepemguessing #boringlife #notboringgal
Yves Saint Laurent once said that fashion fades, but style is eternal. Every time I hear this quote, I immediately think of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Laura Dunn.
Laura Dunn, writes a Political Style blog, and had this to say about Jackie Kennedy’s style. I think she happens to be right on, so happy to reblog this.
“I’ve been a fan of Jackie Kennedy for several years, with a particular interest in the work of the Kennedy Administration and Jackie’s time as a book editor. The period of her life ‘after Jack’ is similarly intriguing, and it is this era of her life that I look to for timeless fashion tips”.
Jackie Kennedy Style Tips
1. Never be without your sunglasses: I always opt for big sunglasses, or at least ones that cover the whole of my eyes! Jackie was known for the bug-eyed style of glasses, and legend has it that she had a bowl by her front door that contained many different pairs. This is a Terry O style tip, as well! When in Rome…
2. Own a classic handbag: From Gucci to Hermes, Jackie carried a designer handbag to store her essentials. While you don’t have to spend several months rent on the latest purse, look for a classic shape and color scheme that will take you easily from season to season. Yet another Terry O tip! #sisters
3. Off-duty doesn’t have to be untrendy: When she wasn’t on ‘duty,’ Jackie would opt for jeans and a pair of Keds to run around town. With endless options to choose from, there are pairs of Keds for everyone! Plus they’re very useful for running away from paparazzi! I can relate.
4. Invest in jewelry that will last a lifetime: Timeless pieces of jewelry are always a winner, and Jackie had several items that she wore from her time as a Senator’s wife in the 1950s, up until her death in 1994. Because luxury items hold their value, consider investing in a timeless piece that will bring both revenue and style. Thank you Kevin!
5. Keep them guessing: Many of Jackie’s jewels were actually costume jewelry designed by Kenneth Jay Lane. She even had real pieces recast in paste, and many individuals couldn’t tell the difference. If costume jewelry worked for Jackie, it will work for you! I have a knack for losing jewelry. This is a great tip. Take it from someone who knows. 🙂
Great Jackie Looks that I Love <3
Jackie Kennedy Quotes
I have heard about this quote for many, many years. I have, myself, also tried to live by this quote.
You cannot separate the good from the bad…But I do try to focus on the good.
Something that we, in this social media day and age, need to remember.

To me you are the only one
Who can help unwind my tangled mind

I’m telling anybody tell everybody
So here we are the week after Super Bowl…and typically one of the sadder weeks of the year for me, because it’s well, “Too many to count”, weeks till Football starts up again. Whatever will I do to fill my time? 😉
