John F. Kennedy birthday tribute: Remembering the 35th president's iconic style
With his white Oxford, Bermuda shorts, sea-swept hair, and a beautiful woman on his arm, Kennedy pairs buttoned-up with casual in the most natural of ways.
Making a case for formal summer attire, Kennedy, seen here with his family, shows how an Oxford can go day to night, with a pair of navy chinos.
A washed-in polo, khaki pants, and Wayfarer-esque sunglasses were old-standbys for the president, as they are for fashion-forward men today.
Though Kennedy wears his white pants before Labor Day, the once considered summer signature has become a year-round staple.
A classic-cut, mid-thigh bathing suit in a traditional color is as timeless as the president’s winning smile.
A chunky, shawl-collar cardigan is an effortless essential for any man’s wardrobe, especially for those chilly summer days and nights.
A lightweight blazer in a pale hue showcased Kennedy’s smart style and weather-appropriate prowess.
A long-sleeve polo may not seem as necessary as it’s short-sleeve counterpart, but Kennedy proves its versatility.
