When it comes to points of fashion inspiration, my references are constantly changing 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 been a constant source of inspiration for many, many years, however, is the late Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy. Her point of view on minimal, elegant 90s fashion feels as relevant today as it did 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 timeless is that her looks are timeless at their core. Rather than leaning into fleeting trends, her style is grounded in neutral and seasonless silhouettes that transcend the moment she originally wore them. Ahead, I’m highlighting some pieces you can add to your cart now that were inspired by some of Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy’s most iconic looks, plus some new finds that I think would fit seamlessly into her wardrobe now.
