John F. Kennedy: Presidential Style

With the election of John F. Kennedy as the 35th President of the United States, the golden era of Camelot began. John and Jackie, along with their two young children, revolutionized what the First Family could be during their short time in office. They were a great looking and very stylish couple. Whether you agreed with them politically or not, there was no denying that at all. JFK is one of my favorite style icons. He looked amazing whether he was in a suit (doing his job as leader of the free world) or dressed more casual (as he relaxed with his family). It's such a tragedy that his term and life were cut so short.

I was just about to say the same thing, what a tragic end for a great man. He did look amazing, his son did too.

Keith:
People can say what they may about JFK, but family wealth notwithstanding, he WAS a damn sharp dresser, be it formal, business, or casual.

And many of the young people of that day tried to emulate that.
It was a better time.

Good post.

Great photos of JFK here. The man was certainly an icon.

I especially like the picture w/RFK and Teddy. It was sad losing the last of the three of them recently!

JFK always looked so polished. I love his style. I also had a big crush on John John. He grew into a very stylish handsome guy. Jackie O has always been one of my fashion inspirations. She always looked amazing. Good choice for fashion this week. However, I've never seen you make a bad choice yet. I can see by your posts that we have similar taste in fashion. Hope you're having a fabulous week.

They were absolutely an amazingly stylish couple! I think they were the ones that made it acceptable to live in the White House and be stylish!

Every one of the Kennedys has impeccable style, and JFK was of course no exception -- absolutely immaculate.

I love the pic of the entire family.

Fantastic post Keith! They were so young and good looking and gorgeous, weren't they? I heard once that JFK was responsible for the phasing out of hat wearing in the 60s as he didn't wear one at important functions. I think there could be something in that as he was such a style icon.

simplychic said...

agreed!! they were such a well put together, lovely family.
