Summer Wardrobe Edit -  Jackie O Style

An icon of her time with an incredible sense of understated yet glamorous fashion style, Jackie Kennedy Onassis is giving us the ultimate guide for our W&W Summer 2022 capsule wardrobe edit.

 

Now, as much as we just adore the White House Chanel twin sets days, here at W&W we're more inclined to swoon over Jackie circa '69 onwards. Once she married Aristotle Onassis in 1968 and became forever known as 'Jackie O', her minimal style with maximum impact truly blossomed and still feels relevant to this day.

 

So, how to be more Jackie on your hols this year?

Throw our ABBI shirt over your swimsuit. Pair with sunnies and flip flops and you're good to go. Simple but SO good!

 

                

 

A big fan of clean lines in bold prints, what could be easier to wear - or pack - than a spaghetti strap dress? Accessorise with a headscarf, ancient Greek sandals and signature, oversized sunglasses then head down to your nearest café for some serious people watching (our favourite thing to do on holiday).

 

Our Pucci inspired EMMI maxi is just perfect for wafting around in the sunshine.

 

Or you could channel your inner Jackie with the elegance of a shift dress, the secret here is simplicity, never look like you're trying too hard. Keep jewellery to a minimum, less is more.

 

                     

 Our W. Vintage shift dress ticks all the boxes on this look.

We like to think Jackie would have loved the look and ease of a simple boilersuit, and our CORRIE option would certainly fit the bill (also available in Cream).

Perfect for a day in the city sight seeing.

 

                         

 

Although appearring to prefer a more neutral colour scheme of black, navy and camel, she was also partial to peppy primary brights. Our Jackie-approved belted, fluid shirt dress is sophisticated and relaxed, available in a colour popping coral or classic black colourway.

 

 

Lets finish with accessories, this is where you can have fun! Jackie was the absolute queen of fashioning a headscarf (even managing to look cool with her shades over the top of the scarf at times!)

 

                 

We love these versatile, statement making hair scarfs currently available from Etsy and ASOS.

 

                

 

An XL straw hat is another must have summer accessory - we found the perfect style and chic shape with this one from & Other Stories for £40.

 

 

And of course, not forgetting her statement oversized sunglasses, these are a great affordable option from Marks and Spencer at just £15.

 

 

Have a lovely weekend in the sunshine folks!
