Speaking of clothing that would never go out of style, an honorary mention should be the classic leather jackets. They have been around for over a century and have also stood as an emblem for all things "cool". The leather jacket is more of an investment than a one-time buy because let's face it, donning the outerwear is never considered "so last season". It has been endorsed by some of the coolest people and has also had its groundbreaking pop culture moments. So it is worth considering adding this ephemeral trend to your closet staples. You can easily pull out a leather jacket and make a fashion statement without trying too hard. As part of its sleek summer style, DKNY is reinventing the classic leather jacket into a sleeves optional vest. Featured above is the Faux leather moto vest that can ramp up your OOTD, with the attitude to serve. The streamlined silhouette combines with its rocker sensibility is a perfect eye-catching ensemble to achieve that effortless baddie vibe.
Marilyn Monroe, the stunning, iconic actress whose fashion has been admired by many once said, "Give a woman the right shoes, and she will conquer the world." They may pretty much be at the foresight of fashion designer Tom Ford, whose eponymous label makes some of the most stylish shoes for women. Monroe also said, "Diamonds are a girl's best friend." While diamonds are often way too far off in our price range to be covetable, shoes aren't. When it comes to high-heels, however, we have a special place in our hearts, and the right pair of heels can boost one's confidence and transform any look. Featured above is the lacquered patent padlock pump, a pair of heels that can be easily deemed the top favorite in celebrity circles. Everyone from Beyonce to Jennifer Lopez has been rocking various styles of this timeless shoe. Cut in a smooth, sleek and slender style with a glossy finish, the shoes come with a pointed toe and a 10.5cm heel. It also sports an ankle strap with the padlock that sets the style apart.
