1962: The pillbox hat
Since she married John Kennedy, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis became a fashion icon and an inspiration for the nation. She was always impeccably dressed, and a few of her accessories were particularly iconic, including the pillbox hats she put on the fashion map. In 1962, everyone was wearing these hats, followed by Jackie Kennedy.
White gloves were another trademark accessory of Jackie Kennedy, though she wasn’t the one to introduce them to he fashion world. Although most trend-setters were Hollywood stars, there was something about Jackie’s gentle, sophisticated style that put the eyes of the nation on her.
