Spring is here people! And you know what that means: it’s baseball season. That’s right ladies and gentlemen, the Kansas City Royals are back, and so are their fans. Get ready for tailgating, hot dogs and everything else that goes along with game days. Though I’d rather be at an actual game than working the watch parties at the local bar I work at, I’m still excited. So of course, the first thing that caught my eye when I saw this Fashionisto on campus was his hat.
Everywhere I go, I see people wearing baseball caps. Just the other day I was at the Apple store and the guy helping me was wearing one. When the Royals went to the World Series last year, everyone had these KC hats on. Granted, most of the people I see wearing these hats are boys, but I don’t care. I want one so bad because they’re honestly the coolest baseball caps I’ve ever seen. What makes them so amazingly retro and old school is the embroidered minimalistic KC. They’re also cut to the pattern of a 1950s baseball cap. Although these hats are a bit pricey, if you’re nearby and love all things Kansas City then you need one in your life. If you’re not nearby and have never been to Kansas City, then you still need one in your life. Also, you should probably hit up KC sometime soon because it’s a pretty great place.
For the rest of his outfit, this Fashionisto focused on layers. He paired his distressed denim jacket with a plaid button up and graphic T-shirt. I thought his denim jacket was unique because he added the personal touch of the small Jawbreaker and Kansas City Royals pins. He rolled up the bottoms of his blue jeans to reveal his Nike tennis shoes and awesome socks. Cuffing your jeans has been a trend for what seems like forever, but I love it when people roll their jeans up just enough to reveal some textured or funky patterned socks. It’s a quirky touch, but I think it’s a great way to add a subtle detail to any look.
How To: In love with the recent sporty-chic trend? Complete your outfit by throwing on one of these hats instead of the typical leather baseball cap for a unique touch.
