Chanel suit

Description: Suits by Coco Chanel were considered a staple of every well-dressed woman’s wardrobe in the late 1950s and 1960s. They were designed to be comfortable and chic, and the jackets could be worn either closed or open, revealing blouses that often coordinated with the suit’s lining (like this one does.) Jackie Kennedy loved Chanel, and it was a Chanel suit that she was wearing the day her husband was assassinated.
