Priscilla Presley's Style: The Fashion Lessons We Can Learn From The Icon (PHOTOS)

Priscilla Presley was half of one of the most contentious couples in Hollywood. She and Elvis Presley met when she was only 14 years old and went on to marry just a few years later. Though society might not have approved of their relationship, she didn't seem to care.

Today, that self-assured attitude also translates to her style, and her propensity to push limits and try new trends has made this lady a fashion icon. In celebration of her 68th birthday (on May 24), we are taking a look back at Priscilla's best sartorial moments to date.

Here are six style lessons from the great Ms. Presley -- you might want to take notes.

1. You can never go wrong when you're in a jumpsuit.
