When it comes to points of fashion inspiration, my references are constantly in flux as trends emerge on the runways, street style shifts, cool celebrity looks unfold, and new designers take the helm of designer brands. One person who has remained a constant source of inspiration for many, many years, though, is the late Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy. Her point of view on minimal, elegant ‘90s fashion feels as relevant today as it did many decades ago and I always return to her classic looks as I continue to build out the staples in my closet.
One reason I think her style is so eternal is that her looks are timeless at their core. Rather than leaning into fleeting trends, her style is grounded in neutrals and seasonless silhouettes that go far beyond the moment she originally wore them. Ahead, I’m highlighting some pieces you can add to your cart now that are inspired by some of Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy’s most iconic looks, plus some new finds I think would fit seamlessly into her wardrobe now.
