If you haven’t heard about the Jackie O style yet, and you love to follow fashion, then you’re in for a treat. Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis was the first lady of the United States and a popular fashion icon. Her style was as iconic and as sought after in her day as it is now. She started a trend of chic skirted suits, pillbox hats, pearls, gloves, and the famous oversized sunnies.
She was a lover of sunglasses, and kept several in a large bowl near her front door and would grab a pair before she walked out. Oversized sunglasses became her signature look and started a fashion trend known as the 'Jackie O' style.
Our latest additions to the JJ Tints Collection are inspired by her timeless style. Below we have curated a list of our favourite pieces that are sure to update your retro wardrobe.
A bit of style and retro - these frames are what we like to call the modern retro look. Make a real style statement by investing in a pair of white sunglasses. They are the perfect accessory to make a basic outfit look glam and gorgeous.
If you’re looking for something bold, extra-large and with bucket-loads of character, then these sunnies should be your pick. We have given these retro shades plenty of modern updates like the graphic details on the temples. Wear them with sleek hair and high necklines.
Cat-eye sunglasses are a perennial fashion favourite, and that's not going to change anytime soon. Loud, edgy, and extremely modern, they are unfalteringly elegant and made with the best quality of Italian acetate. The exquisite tortoiseshell adds the perfect glam factor to them.
Jackie O’s unique style continues to inspire designers and dominate catwalks worldwide. Whether she wore her frames cat-eye, square, or oval, she was creating a timeless style statement. Be sure to find your own style statement at John Jacobs, and choose from a multitude of designs and colours.
