In celebration of Ray-Ban's 75th year, they challenged bloggers to dress as their favorite icon. James Dean is no doubt my icon because he is the king of cool. Dean is a renowned American actor in the 1950s. His most celebrated film is “Rebel Without a Cause” in which he portrayed the role of Jim Stark—a disillusioned teenager. His rebellious and rock-n-roll look are truly iconic. James Dean’s wardrobe staples include white tees, denim and a leather jacket, not to mention the iconic quiff hairstyle!

What I’m wearing: faux leather jacket (Forever 21 Men), flannel (Chief), black shirt (Forever 21 Men), jeans (Levi’s), aviators (Ray-Ban), watch (Tendence), boots (Dr Martens). Hype this on lookbook here.

When I started this blog, I have never imagined it will be what it is now. I get emails from readers asking help in gaining confidence. It’s funny because I am shy and awkward myself. But this blog became an outlet for me to express myself and a challenge for me to step out of my comfort zone and try new things. I want to inspire the youth to present themselves well, do what they are passionate about (whatever it may be-doesnt have to be blogging), find their niche and be the best in their chosen field. Don’t become someone you are not because just like James Dean, you can be your own icon.  

Invest in signature and classic pieces—a basic shirt, a flannel or button down, a leather jacket, nice fitting jeans and a pair of Ray-Ban shades. 

Developed for their functional excellence, desired for their legendary appearance. They are the styles that define lives. Cool was invented in 1937. Can you believe Ray-Ban has been around for already 75 years! Wow! These iconic styles will never fade.  

Admittedly, I feel like a true icon whenever I wear my Ray-Ban! The Aviator fits my style-it’s classic and iconic. This pair is worth every penny. The Aviator is just one of Ray-Ban’s Icon collection, check the other styles here

At the end of the day, it’s not about what you wear, it’s not about how popular you are that makes you an icon, it’s about doing the work we are destined to do extraordinary well—be it studying, sports, arts, blogging, etc! Make your simple life legendary. NEVER HIDE because you can be your own icon. 

"Dream as if you’ll live forever. Live as if you’ll die today" - James Dean
