• The icon:

    Jackie Kennedy Onassis

    Who: Charismatic former First Lady whose glamorous yet demure style set a benchmark for '60s chic.

    Her look: Classic cuts allowed her fashion-forward accessories – pillbox hats, oversized sunglasses – to take center stage.

    The runway tribute: Onassis' elegance is echoed in spring's ladylike looks, from Jason Wu's classic, framed bags to the sharp dresses at Rochas.

    How to work it now: Start with a soft-hued dress, then go all-out with matching, feminine accessories; midi-heels compulsory.
