But after I laid eyes on Transparent System’s White Moto Jacket, I was like, “Forget the black.” White is the way to go. No one has a white leather jacket. No one.
And I’m not even a fan of white things. (I usually prefer black to white).
This lightweight jacket has zipper pockets, and the logo artfully running down the left arm. My favorite detail is the stenciled elephant roaring on the lower backside of the jacket. You can’t go wrong with this jacket.
Sleek, smooth and different. It’s a nice deviation from your typical black leather jacket.
As some of you may know, Audrey Magazine was named after our publisher’s daughter. James Ryu started the publication in 2002, inspired by his young American-born daughter, and wanting to provide a magazine that reflected not just faces like hers, but the unique bicultural world in which she lives and will grow up.
It doesn’t hurt that the name “Audrey” also references one of the most stylish and elegant women in American history. I first became obsessed with Audrey Hepburn in the ’90s when I discovered Roman Holiday. I devoured all her films, biographies and especially the clothes. I even dressed up as Holly Golightly one Halloween … back when I still dressed up for Halloween.
Now that strong eyebrows and winged eyeliner and pixie cuts are making a huge comeback, Audrey is more relevant than ever. And beyond her beauty and sophistication, towards the latter half of her life, Audrey Hepburn dedicated herself to the children of the world as a UNICEF goodwill ambassador. That’s something all of us, including Audrey, can aspire to.

Think about your go-to absolute favorite, instantly hot-tifying piece in your wardrobe. Picturing it?
Perhaps it’s that LBD. Maybe it’s that statement shoe you’ve been saving up for. Or the always-make-me-look-skinny jeans that go with everything.
Now, think about the one or two pieces you actually wear, like, all the time.
If you’re anything like me, they’re two totally different things. Yes, I love my jacket with the super structured shoulder, my floral mini with the angular pockets, my skinny-fying jodhpur cargos.
But I live in these cheap men’s tank tops my mom brings by the dozen from Asia every year. They’re a wardrobe essential.
This Transparent Systems tee is destined to become a wardrobe essential. The perfect length for leggings, an easy slouch, and a just-interesting-enough graphic to be a little rock n’ roll, a little retro. Throw on a jacket and you’re ready for dinner. Pair it cut-offs and flat boots for an I’m-with-the-band vibe. At this price, you might as well get two … or three.
