Katie Holmes is slated to play Jackie Kennedy in the History Channel’s miniseries, The Kennedys (opposite Greg Kinnear, as JFK) in 2011 – and we’re guessing that her Jackie O-like wardrobe didn’t hurt in landing the part. We’ve outlined the 4 Jackie O. basics that Katie encompasses, helping her nab the role:

1. A Classic Trench

The khaki trench was a classic Spring piece in Jackie’s day and is still going strong now. If you can’t justify splurging on a Burberry trench, try this Calvin Klein Belted Trench Coat ($128). It looks almost exactly the same – at a tenth of the price.


2. Oversize Lucite Sunglasses

Forever 21’s F0763 Sunglasses ($5.80) are a cheap way to get your Jackie O. fix – the shape of the lens and clear frame look like her originals.

3. Preppy Sheath Dress

Another classic trend – throw on a pretty sheath like Jones New York Collection Matka Silk Sheath Dress ($149) and you’re instantly Jackie-fied.

4. Tot Accessory… Just Kidding (Sort of).

See why Jackie O’s favorite Delman flats are worth the splurge, more Looks for Less features and then see our guide to celebrity denim,  Celebrity Style Sunglasses, plus more celebrity style posts.
