And how quickly time flies! It is now the end of another extremely rewarding semester at CollegeFashionista, as well as the end of my crazy-busy NYC summer. As a hats off to you all, I’ve chosen to feature my new best friend: the baseball cap/snapback.
Even if your aversion to sports causes you to call Wii Golf a workout, you have to admit that our Fashionista looks cute. I love her classic button-down and shorts look, but the hat adds another level of sass that I’m very partial to. I love pairing the cap with sporty looks for a laid back, hanging-with-the-boys vibe. Recently I saw a street style photo of a girl wearing a white T-shirt, denim overalls and a snapback. It was so adorable that I immediately went to Forever 21 in search of my own. There are classic denim ones, but I’m more drawn to the polka-dot and houndstooth versions, just because they’re less hillbilly-chic and more actual-chic. As for the snapback, I like updated options like this floral snapback or this leather baseball hat.
If you’re interested in a cool, affordable snapback to start with, I highly recommend the Hey WTF cap. (I have one, so you know it’s awesome.) HEY WTF Records is a Boston-based band that is funded through kickstarter, so you can get a hat by donating to their campaign or by checking out their merch page. I love it because it’s simple but cheeky, and an easy way to support live music.
