Jackie had an extremely simple style and didn't wear much jewelry.

However, when she did wear accessories, they were always a reflection of her personality and never too glitzy or gaudy. Along with her large-framed sunglasses, Jackie made the three-strand pearl necklace a signature trend that women still follow today.

Her famous faux pearl necklace even sold for hundreds of thousands of dollars at auction. So, whether with a dress and white gloves or trousers and a T-shirt, you can pair pearls with any outfit for instant class and elegance.

There's no need to break the bank, either -- remember that Jackie's pearls were imitation, and yours can be, too!
