Trend Alert: Baseball Caps


Baseball caps are one of my favorite trends this year because it gives an urban feel to any look and it instantly makes your outfit look effortlessly cool.  You can wear it with a dress, jeans and a t-shirt or a jumpsuit – the options are endless. Check out four ways to wear a baseball hat!


One of the easiest ways to style a baseball cap is to pair it with leggings and a crop top. The leggings + crop top combo is an understated sexy – as long as you keep the bottoms high waisted. Kourtney Kardashian wore a matching set with a leather baseball cap in black, finishing it off with a denim jacket. The denim is a great way to break up all the black and also add texture.

Kylie wore a white leather baseball cap with a matching hued crop top and black bottoms. The black X white color scheme is classic and will never go out of style. Both ladies kept it casual in sneakers but you could definitely swap them out for heels and wear this look in the evening as well.

2. Dress X Heels

Rihanna looked amazing in her silky dress, heels and baseball cap! She pulled her hair back into a bun beneath the hat, showing off her décolletage.  The cap adds that nice touch of edge to the fancy pieces.  This look is sexy and so chic.  The hat gives the outfit a bit of mystery while balancing out the pieces.

3. Black X Gold

I love wearing Nike/Adidas/Puma hats – they aren’t ‘trendy’ hats — trendy hats usually go out of style in a few months. Nike/Adidas/Puma hats are classic pieces -something every girl should have.  I love adding that sporty/urban element to my looks because I feel like it gives me more confidence and sass.

For this look, wear all black with gold accessories, and add a cream hued baseball cap.  Black with gold jewelry always looks good together – they balance each other out.  The red nails and lips make the look more glam – it will definitely turn heads.  Each part of this ensemble is a classic look on its own and so when you put them together, it just works!

4. Denim X Denim

I have so many hats from my favorite sports teams. I used to only wear them when I went to the gym.  These days, my sports hat serve as the finishing touch to my outfits.  Kendall Jenner wore a chambray top tucked into jeans for a causal but streamlined daytime ensemble.  She added a NY Yankees hat, which made the look less preppy and more effortlessly cool.

How to Look Chic in Sweatpants and Sneakers


I love feeling comfortable in my clothes and sweatpants and sneakers are the perfect combo to me.  Instead of limping in heels or feeling self-conscious in fitted jeans, my new go to is sneakers and sweats.  It’s entirely possible to look chic in this athletic-inspired combo, but it’s all about how you style it.  Check out three ways to look chic and stylish while wearing sneakers and sweatpants!

1. Choose a Printed Sweatpants and Top Set

Jourdan Dunn wore a pineapple printed sweatsuit set with her Adidas Superstar 2.0 sneakers, an easy stylish combo!  The great thing about this look is that you can have fun with the pattern or print, as long as you keep it consistent with the sweater top and pants. Make sure to roll up the sleeves, just so the look is a little more relaxed and effortless. Her sweatpants and sweater are by Zoe Karssen.  She also designed other sweatpants with crazy patterns, including a bat pattern, as well as stars and palm trees. The Adidas Superstars are the perfect sneakers for the look because they give the outfit an edgy vibe.

2. Add a Crop Top and Denim Vest

Candice Swanepoel wore black Nike sweatpants with a white loose crop top and denim vest, finishing off the look with her Adidas Superstars.  This a definitely a more daring look than Jourdan’s, but it’s still casual and relaxed.  The long sleeve white crop top is super loose, which compliments the loose sweatpants.  The whole look works because the top is cropped–revealing her stomach and making the look sexy.  The light wash denim vest is a great way to make the outfit a little less revealing while also adding that effortless vibe.  The sneakers keep the look casual and works perfectly with the color palette she chose.  This look screams effortless cool! Check out these sweatpants at Asos-they look pretty much identical to Candice’s and they’re only $33 USD!

3. Tuck in a Simple Loose T-Shirt

Cara Delevingne wore two simple pieces and she looks so stylish!  She chose navy sweatpants and tucked in a gray t-shirt.  She wore gorgeous Chanel high tops and reflective sunglasses to finish off the look.  The key to this look is making sure to tuck in the tee, because if not, it could look a little sloppy–by tucking it in, you’re defining your waist and making it more streamlined.  The white sneakers bring a pop lightness to the mostly dark-colored look.  This is such a easy look to recreate–a simple tee and solid sweatpants! has similar navy blue sweatpants for $30.
