Let's Hear it for the Boys

Davy Crockett had the coonskin cap. Abraham Lincoln had the top hat. The fedora is most linked to Frank Sinatra. And the baseball hat is the Fashionisto's main accessory.

While the weather is cooling down, one would expect to see more cold weather accessories like scarves and gloves around campus as opposed to baseball hats. But, I'm convinced that hats are to men what purses are to women. To quote Samantha Jones, it's “Just a little bag, but we'd feel naked in public without it.” While I don't know for sure, I'd be willing to bet it's the same for men regarding hats. Whether it's the last thing they throw on to cover their bed head before running to class or a good luck charm for their favorite team, the baseball hat seems to be a Fashionisto's favorite accessory.

This Fashionisto caught my eye by dressing in style while donning a baseball cap. His cool cap is only the starting point for the rest of his fashionable outfit. He kept the entire look simple by choosing a hat, sweater, jacket and shoes all in the same color. By doing this, he creates a streamlined look which allows the hat to compliment his outfit. I love how this Fashionisto added a pop of color by layering a red button-up under his sweater and letting the collar and ends tuck out. A sweater over a button-up is also a great way to showcase your team spirit while remaining stylish. By choosing these items in your team's colors, you can still support your team without having to sacrifice style. This pop of color also coordinates with the red in this Fashionisto's shoes and brings the entire outfit together. By choosing polished items like a sweater, leather jacket and jeans, this Fashionisto makes his outfit appropriate for class as opposed to a sporting event.

To follow this Fashionisto's example, layer a button-up under a sweater for a pop of color. Add a leather jacket and a cool pair of gym shoes and top it off with your favorite hat. Hats off to you for pulling of such an easy and fashionable look!

Hint: This Fashionisto creates a polished look by pairing his hat with stylish items like a button-up, sweater and leather jacket. Avoid wearing sweats with your baseball hat so you don't look sloppy or too spirited.
