Summer is the perfect time for a touch of Americana, with Memorial Day weekend kicking it all off, followed by the Fourth of July, and then Labor Day as the season winds down. With all these occasions in just a couple months, there’s no shortage of opportunities to mix some of this American flare into your wardrobe. When Americana and fashion collide, there is one American style icon who should undoubtedly come to mind – the one and only Jackie O.
Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis’ style is ever-influential, inspiring the both Americans and fashionistas worldwide with every look, whether it’s big round sunglasses or a bright pink Chanel suit. Jackie O was certainly the First Lady of style, and she didn’t just influence stylish individuals for decades either, but mega brands with the likes of Chanel and Gucci have adorned her and been inspired by her image as well. Gucci’s now classic homage to one of America’s great style icons is the Jackie O bag. The Jackie O has been around for decades and evokes the stylish First Lady’s timeless look in a versatile shoulder bag that she herself wore.
This particular corner of Gucci bags comes in a variety of finishes, styles, and typically features a lock closure on the front of the bag. The variety of styles provide endless options and opportunities to incorporate it into any look. There’s the more refined silhouette of the quilted leather Jackie O shoulder bag, or the more relaxed hobo style bag which still evokes the classic look but also references Gucci style of recent years, like this printed Jackie O bag with horsebit hardware that Gucci released for the brand’s 85th anniversary.
However there are two styles of the Jackie O by Gucci that stand out and definitely deserve their fashionable namesake. The first is the gorgeous suede mustard tone Jackie O shoulder bag with gold hardware. Both simple and luxurious, this bag could be a perfect go-to bag for any day or night. Then there’s the stunning lizard Jackie O hobo bag, which instead of the standard lock closure features a more modern and cool clasp hardware on the front. This bag definitely stands out, and it has both style and practicality, being a roomier bag to fit all your other stylish goodies, like a matching Gucci wallet per se?
No matter what style of the Gucci Jackie O bag you fancy, from the monogram print to the standout lizard hobo, now’s the perfect time to rock this iconic Gucci bag and evoke one of the foremost American style icons of all time. And don’t worry, this bag is never going out of style, just like Mrs. Kennedy herself, so you can keep sporting this classic bag long after summer has come and gone.
