Oct

Gold hoop earrings is making a comeback in the fashion world. The simple yet sexy jewelry look has been a go-to favorite for a multitude of fashionistas and trend setters.  Hoop earrings can add that glamorous touch to any look.

While the hoop size is entirely up to you, personally I think go big or go home. Check out three gorgeous celebs rocking the hoop earrings trend.

Trend Alert: Baseball Caps

Mar

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!

1.Leggings 

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.
