15 Times Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Slayed The Fashion Scene
Start writing a post

Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis was most notably the First Lady of the United States from 1960 to 1963. She was also a mother, photographer, a publisher, and a renowned fashion icon until her death in 1994. The legacy she leaves behind is one of history, writing, poetry, photography, and fashion which is fitting considering her love for the arts. Her grace, elegance and poise lives on through fashion and is still recognized today.

1. When she looked flawless with her signature sunglasses and her Yves Saint Laurent coat,

Fun Fact: she is responsible for the big sunglasses trend that goes in and out of style every ten years or so.

2. When she was pretty in pastels

The perfect dress for Spring or Easter Sunday. Plus, a shift dress is always appropriate.

3. When she took the perfect selfie with her husband and sister-in-law,

You wish you dressed that stylishly in the summer. Nope, instead it's just norts and a frat tank. (Don't worry I'm guilty of that too)

4. When she wore Lilly Pulitzer and Jack Rogers,

2 Fun Facts: 1) Jackie went to school with Lilly Pulitzer so that's the prime example of why you should be nice to everyone even when you're a grumpy teen filled with angst and 2) she popularized both brands so sorority girls everywhere need to thank her.

5. When she looked perfect sailing the ocean blue in navy

Navy never looked so good.

6. When she donned her one of her famous most famous dresses, the Oleg Cassini peach dress

If anyone else wore that color, it would completely wash them out.

7. When she proved that pearls never go out of style

"Pearls are always appropriate" = literal quote from Jackie herself. And she isn't wrong.

8. When she proved that this color always looks good

This lilac/lavender color needs to make a comeback as soon as possible.

9. When she looked a straight-up goddess on her wedding day in 1953

Her off-the-shoulder dress was designed by Ann Lowe.

10. When she proved (time and time again) that she's more than just a pretty face

In the late 1970s, she worked at a publishing company and was probably the best-dressed in that office.

11. When she avoided the horrible bell-bottoms of the 70s and opted for this adorable outfit instead,

Dress like Jackie Kennedy at your next theme party – not Jackie Burkhart from That 70's Show

12. When she was the most stylish tourist to ever visit the Taj Mahal

Much better than every outfit that I wore when I was abroad.

13. When she was the only person to ever look good in a pill box hat

That hat style just worked for her, and she knew that.

14. When she wore normal clothes just like all of us would wore and she still killed it

Tell me that you don't own a shirt (or several) like this.

15. And finally, when she flawlessly and amazingly successfully sat on a camel in a gorgeous pink frock

Like, honestly, how does one do this while still looking ladylike?

Though she is remembered for a lot more than her impeccable style, her fashion trends will never go out of style and will always be relevant.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
