These are the stories making headlines in fashion on Tuesday.

Hillary Clinton knows how to recycle an outfit
The Democratic presidential candidate is a busy lady, and she doesn't have time to change outfits during a single day — which sounds normal but is nonetheless striking for a high-profile woman. And since Clinton has been criticized for a lack of style as well as shopping too high-end, it's worth noting that she can recycle an outfit and look good doing it. Case in point, this printed double-breasted coat, which did double-duty at the hospital for the birth of her grandson (congrats!) and again later that evening at a star-studded fundraiser at the home of Harvey Weinstein and Marchesa designer Georgina Chapman. (Another memorable outfit repeat? The coat she wore on both "Broad City" and "Late Night with Seth Meyers" in December.) {Daily Mail}

Shinola and FTC disagree about "Made in USA" label
The Detroit-based manufacturer proudly produces its watches, bicycles and leather goods in the USA. But in a recent letter to the brand, the US Federal Trade Commission accused Shinola of being misleading, since the brand (and countless others) sources materials from overseas. "As you can imagine, many of the components and raw materials are simply not available in the US, and because of that we are unable to meet the almost unattainable “Made In USA” standards created by the government," said Shinola founder Tom Kartsotis in a statement. "Until a change in policy clarifies for the consumer what it truly means to be Made in the USA, Shinola will always strive to do as much as it can in America with the benefit of an American workforce." {Quartz}

South Asia's bridal fashion market is worth an estimated $100 billion and counting
For wealthy South Asian women, no expense is spared when it comes to ostensibly posh attire. In recent years, there has been an uptick in the number of runway shows and fashion weeks in the region, which has given way to a massive increase in demand for couture pieces for special events, especially weddings. "Bridal clothes can go into thousands of dollars," said Fashion Parade founder Sadia Siddiqui, whose annual invite-only catwalk event features Pakistani designers and regularly attracts South Asian diplomats and members of high society. "On bridal wear, depending on a designer, it can be anything between six to twenty thousand dollars." {Forbes}

Kylie Jenner is getting patriotic with her newest Lip Kit colors
The youngest member of the Kardashian-Jenner tribe recently took to Snapchat (where else) to announce two brand-new shades of her Lip Kit that will be available later this month. Pick from Skylie, a light blue shade, and Freedom, a dark navy — both of which are sure to be a hit throughout the Fourth of July. {People}
