The Look: Snapbacks

Like a great pair of kicks, snapback hats have become an essential part of streetwear fashion. The very first adjustable snapback started in the 1950s but primarily seen as part of baseball uniform. The term snapback is slang for a baseball-style hat worn improperly. Snapbacks were popularized in the late 80′s & 90′s by artists like Tupac Shakur, Dr. Dre @drdre, and Ice Cube @icecube. Today, artists like Wiz Khalifa @wizkhalifa, and Jay-Z @S_C_ have contributed to the reemergence of this trend by rocking this stylish headwear and its now a cult status among young consumers.

When it comes to the snapbacks if you want to make a statement go for bold colors and patterns, pair them with some tims, a graphic tee with denim or army fatigue pants. Now if you want to use it with majority of your looks, keep it classic and fashionable by pairing your outfit with a neutral colorway instead. Either way a stylish snapback is definitely the way to go to top off the perfect streetwear look.
