Former First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis is and forever will be a legend. Arguably one of the most stylish women of all time, everything about her oozes with elegance. From her signature beauty look to her timeless style, here we show you how to live your best life like the style icon.
There’s no argument that Mrs. Kennedy’s style is absolutely impeccable. Some of her go-to pieces included a classy string of pearls around her neck, elegant day gloves, and pill box hats. She loved wearing all shades of colors from pretty pinks to sunny yellows. Less is more was definitely her style mantra. She liked to keep things simple and chic.
Everything about Jackie was effortlessly glamourous including her beauty routine. She was all about the classic, natural look. She kept things pretty minimal when it came to makeup but she made everything pop with a strong eyebrow and a bold lip color that complemented her attire.
As for her hair, Jackie O was known for her signature bouffant short style that perfectly framed her face. Want to keep your blowout looking fresh like Mrs. Kennedy? Sleep on a silk pillowcase like she did. This blush one from One Kings Lane is a dreamy option.
Mrs. Kennedy gave the White House one of its most dramatic makeovers in history transforming the iconic home into a veritable museum of treasures. She wanted the decor to reflect American history and culture. Every single item was carefully selected with purpose. "It would be sacrilege merely to 'redecorate' it—a word I hate. It must be restored—and that has nothing to do with decoration,” she said during a 1961 Life magazine interview.
The First Lady’s love for all things French was also reflected in the decor. Take her downright dreamy dressing room for example. Designed with the help of French interior designer Stéphane Boudin, the space was awash in baby blue and and punctuated with leopard print accents. It looks like something straight out of a fairytale. Give your own space a Jackie O vibe with a baby blue cashmere throw, leopard print chair, and a tufted chaise.
As you can imagine, Mrs. Kennedy was an incredible hostess. She went above and beyond to create a welcoming ambiance and ensure that her guests were having a good time. No detail was overlooked. A well-stocked bar was essential as was a menu tailored to the likes of her guests. Just like her beauty look, her tablescape style was simple and elegant.
