How to Wear Hats – Streetwear Edition

h

1. The Fitted

Now let me just say this, when it come to hats I never knew their were so many unspoken rules. Being from California and never having heard ANY of these ever I’ve declared it as an east coast thing, or maybe a New York thing, since this is where my source resides.

DA RULES – when purchasing a fitted it needs to have a patch, why might you say? I have no clue, just as for the rest there is no method to this hat madness. Rule number 3, BEND THE BRIM! Lastly there are several different bottom brim colors, grey, green, pink and black. But black is unacceptable, cancelled, washed. “f$$k a black brim!” words of a true New Yorker, again no reason as to why.

Each color has its own era, the grey bottom is known as the OG of the New Era hats. As I was told “you not fresh if you not rockin’ a grey bottom!” Green is neutral, not an OG but still accepted, its like the middle child. As for the pink, she’s the baby still new to the game and where the hype is right now. As for black we should all know the drill, no just no.

How to style it

Whether you’re wearing it to support your favorite team, style purposes or simply because you like the color (me) you can make it fashionable. Fitted’s have become extremely trendy and gender neutral. Since its getting colder out you can pair your favorited fitted cap with an oversized crewneck layered over a collared shirt with cargo pants and your go to sneakers, and if you’re feeling extra jazzy, wear it backwards.

2. The Bucket Hat

The bucket hat made its first debut in the 1980’s within hiphop & rap culture, y’all remember LL Cool J and his Kangol hat? Well like most things in fashion they eventually come back in style. Today you can see tons of different patterns, styles and even textures. I even own a couple fuzzy/furry bucket hats, which also was a former trend.

How to style it

Styling the bucket hat can go one of two ways, you can take it back to the 90’s and do entire throwback fit or you can modernize it a bit. Personally the 90’s had a little too many colors for me, so we’re going to go with a modern look. Taking a neutral toned bucket hat you can pair it with a simple crop top, paired with a earth toned flannel, baggy, loose jeans and some nike blazers adding a baguette purse. This was inspired by one of my own looks featured on my TikTok.

Wearing hats is a great way to add an accessories to your fit or to simply to save you from a bad hair day. Of course there are more than just these two styles but they are super trendy right now especially in streetwear. Also as for ‘da rules’ for fitted caps, I’d say as long you’re on the west coast you shouldn’t have to worry but if you find yourself in New York beware.

Which would you wear, the bucket hat or a fitted cap? Also thoughts on my furry bucket hat look? Comment below! Here are some links to other sites on how to wear hats for women and for men.

Kingdes style is extremely unique, from mixing neons with camouflage print, to cow toe boots, she makes anything look good. One of my favorite things about Kingdes is that she has found the balance between cute and comfy, making hoodies chic rather than like regular lounge wear.
