Critically acclaimed biopic Jackie, which stars Natalie Portman in the titular role, opens in Singapore today. While the film has been most lauded for it’s writing and Portman’s acting, critics have also pointed out the impeccable fashion portrayed in the film.
Needless to say, Portman’s outfits were inspired by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis’ real-life style. Wife of the 35th President of the United States, John F. Kennedy, Jackie O is remembered for a fondness for classic, elegant looks that made her a bona-fide global fashion icon.
Jackie O’s wardrobe staples: A camel trench coat, a well-tailored skirt suit or a simple black turtleneck sweater. She was also a lover of sunglasses, often spotted in an oversized pair that became her signature look. Her favourite accessories? An elegant scarf, a dainty watch or classic jewellery to spice up her look.
For casual occasions, she favoured bright and colourful sundresses, most often in a classic A-line shape, and paired them with timeless accessories like a straw hat or a pearl necklace.
Here, coats, dresses and accessories that will help you channel Jackie O effortlessly:
