The Principle: Simplify Shapes for Easy Sophistication
Oleg Cassini (1913 to 2006)Then: Debonair Oleg Cassini had a thriving career in film costumes, but his creations reached their widest audience when Jacqueline Kennedy chose him to mastermind her White House wardrobe. The French-born émigré shunned elaborate designs for sleek, tailored shapes―A-line sheaths, boxy jackets―that didn’t distract from the woman who wore them. “Cassini’s style was structured and tasteful,” says Pamella Roland, a designer based in New York City. This classic simplicity made Cassini a star―and Jackie Kennedy a paradigm of chic.
Now: A sleeveless sheath dress epitomizes Cassini at his minimalist best. Belted or skimming the waist, the straightforward shape works on all body types. Top it with a boxy jacket with lady-like three-quarter-length sleeves when you want a more pulled-together look.
