Would you like to be more glamorous without looking as if you’ve tried too hard? One of the experts at timeless paired down glamour was 1960s icon Jackie O. The first lady was famous for matching single colour schemes, over-sized sunglasses and the super-stylish shift dresses. Here is a guide to interpreting the look with Evans…
While the London swinging 60s meant super short mini skirts and bold floral and tartan prints, John F Kennedy’s wife set her own trend with simple lines, tailored suits, and big sunglasses.
This style icon’s classic look embraces a woman’s femininity and clothes in the style that she championed will help make all of us look and feel like we can take on the world.
Fitted A-line dresses, pearls and pillbox hats were the norm for the extraordinary, well-dressed President’s wife.
It’s all about less is more with this fashion theme so rather than mix and match lots of layers and accessories, the easiest way to re-create Jackie’s effortlessly chic style is to choose a few tailored items. This is great news for your bank balance as you just need to invest in key pieces rather than overhaul your wardrobe.
To get the Jackie O tailored look from Evans, simply start with a black spot prom dress. The flattering knee length and tie-waist detail will subtly show off your shape without flaunting too much flesh so you look lovely and ladylike. But you don’t need the budget of a stateswoman to afford it because this gorgeous monochrome dress is just £49.50.
Talking of great value for money, the mink oversized sunglasses are just £10 but they’ll make you look a million dollars. Think old-school Hollywood movie star meets pampered princess with gorgeous gold detail on the side of each arm.
All you need to finish the look is a pair of gorgeous day to night shoes like the block heel bow detail courts. They’re stylish but they won’t squeeze your feet and you’ll be able to wear them from breakfast to cocktail hour to look effortlessly chic for as long as you want.
