Yesterday marked 20 years since the passing of style icon Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Which means we’ve celebrated her fashion legacy for over two decades. But how does one dress in Jackie O’s likeness? Well, according to ELLE, it’s not all about going the conservative route. In fact, it even involves a little risk.

Jackie O's Style Legacy

From baring hints of skin to sporting curve-hugging silhouettes (often with graphic prints), Jackie O was no stranger to bold dressing – she just always did it tastefully.  Don’t believe me? Head over to elle.com to see a slideshow of her more experimental wardrobe choices (and for plenty of outfit inspiration).

While on vacation in Capri in 1960, Jackie Kennedy first met the sandals that would inspire the original Jack Rogers style. She was photographed wearing them with nearly everything in the U.S. – and the rest is history. The signature whipstitching and trademark rondelles went on to inspire almost all of Jack Rogers’s following shoes.

We love all fashion equally, be it from across the pond or close to home. But in the spirit of the country’s birthday, we’re discriminating – for just a day. Here are four reasons to feel good about buying your blues (and much more) from the red, white, and blue.

1. The brands. Jack Rogers. HABITUAL. Lucky Brand. Need we say more? There are literally too many top-notch “Made in the USA” brands to list (and we love them all).

2. Environmental protection laws. Companies that manufacture in the United States are subject to EPA regulations that help protect the land, air, and water. Plus, if they’re made in America, they’re already in America – hello, tiny carbon footprint.

3. It’s patriotic. There’s a feel-good element to that “Made in the USA” label that just can’t be denied. Call it a discreet nod to American pride.

4. It boosts our economy. More American manufacturing facilities mean more jobs in the States. Companies make their money stateside and reinvest it in the community. Employees get paid and spend their wages in the U.S. It’s like a really expanded version of keeping it all in the family.

Go anywhere in the summer and you’re likely to see at least three pairs of Jack Rogers strutting around. But how did they get so popular (and completely beloved)? This is where it all began.

1. In the early 60s, the label was born on the streets of Capri.

2. After Jackie O fell in love with them while vacationing in Italy, the Navajo sandal gained instant fame.

3. That same sandal is still made by hand in Palm Beach, Florida.

4. Jack Rogers opened its first storefront on NYC’s Madison Avenue in 2011.

5. The brand was recently recognized by the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where it was inducted into The Costume Institute.
