Hats are probably one of my favorite accessories. I just so happen to have a baseball cap that never fails me. Yeah, it’s bright red and doesn’t really match half of the things I own, but it gives my look a bit of character every time I wear it (not to mention it hides bad hair days and forehead zits). The fact that a simple head accessory can change the character of your outfit almost instantaneously is baffling, yet probably the best thing you can hear when you’re in a rush to get out the door.
This week’s Fashionisto pulled off a great look with his slouchy black beanie. I absolutely love these hats. Not only are they conventional, but they also have the ability to add a whimsical touch to any outfit. The look that this Fashionisto is rocking is not one that takes much effort to pull off. He wears a basic Henley T-shirt, dark wash jeans and Sperry Top-Siders. Yes, this outfit does contain all of the basic trends that we’ve been seeing around on campus, but the hat gives it that extra flair, that little something that makes you do a double take while people watching.
But that doesn’t mean that the other pieces in this Fashionisto’s outfit should go unnoticed. His Henley T-shirt is a style that we’ve been seeing for years, but the blue, red and charcoal colorblocking aspect adds something unique to the shirt and makes it look like a lot more than what you’re actually seeing in front of you. Also, whenever you are stumped on which shoes to wear with your outfit, Sperry Top-Siders are a great choice because of their neutral tone and style.
Hint: Don’t limit your hat collection solely to beanies! Broaden your horizons with a Pork Pie hat for an even more relaxed look.
