All this cold weather has me dreaming of being able to really bundle up and layer. For now I will have to settle for some Pinspiration.
As a kid growing up in Brooklyn back in the 90’s, snapback hats were the ultimate urban fashion statement and closely associated with the style and music of hip hop legends like Dr. Dre and Tupac to name a few. The trend of course spread wide from sport legends like Michael Jordan to celebrities such as Will Smith when he was “moving with his auntie and uncle in Bel-air!” Flash forward to today and my boys are rocking vintage snapbacks and listening to today’s trendsetters like Kanye West, Mac Miller, Jay-Z and even underground YouTube sensations like D-Pryde and George Watsky.
Yeah, some things in life come full circle and never go out of style! Oh, and if you are wondering the origin of the name snapback, here’s the quick version: it’s a hat with an adjustable strap on the back that snaps together…snapbacks!
The popularity is continuing to grow an many snapbacks today aren’t exclusive to sport teams – they also use designer brand names like Diamond, Krew and Crook League. From a fashion standpoint the snapback definitely adds a street vibe to your look whether jeans and a tee shirt or a sports jersey with shorts. Best of all there are a ton of options and styles to choose from online. Check out the huge selection at SnapHats.com
