In honor of President’s Day, I decided to do a piece on my favorite couple to be in the White House, John and Jacqueline Kennedy. This will most likely be my first of many posts about the famous couple who brought the Camelot Era to the United States. There is just something about the Kennedy’s that continues to fascinate me and I could spend countless hours learning about their lives. I believe that this was the first Presidency for the couple to be recognized as fashion icons. For example, JFK changed men’s fashion by choosing not wearing fedoras like most men wore everywhere during that time. This choice of his caused the decline in dress hats being worn (especially to work) by men. As for Jackie, her grace and style has forever changed fashion. From the pearls, to the pillbox hats, the Gucci bags, and shift dresses, she has created so many staples for women even today.
So heres to President’s Day, and The Kennedy’s for changing it fashion in the White House.
