The most famous and remembered dress suit from the 1960's was a Chanel pink suit made of wool wore by Jacqueline Kennedy. She was the youngest lady to become first lady, and brought an elegance to American dressing. Her trademarks were boxy jackets, pillbox hats, over blouse dresses, and sleevles A-lines.
