Extra, extra! Read all about it!
The newsboy cap has officially been upgraded to on-trend status!
Just take a peek at the street-style fashion around the globe and you’ll start to see the classic topper make its appearance on the heads of some of the world’s most fashionable women. While I wouldn’t call myself a hat person, per se, over the years I’ve been known to sport my favorite BLACK WOOL NEWSBOY CAP once the temperature starts to drop.
WIDE BRIM HATS are a fashion “commitment” for the sartorially bold — you can’t just roll into lunch with a wide brim hat and not expect some comments.
KNIT BEANIES plaster your hair to your scalp.
Beloved BASEBALL CAPS are truly only suitable for the most casual of occasions.
So, where does that leave us?
Designers have turned to some of the most iconic women in fashion (Jane Birkin, Jean Shrimpton & Brigitte Bardot to name check a few!) to bring back one of the most flattering and practical hat styles into this season’s mix — the newsboy cap.
By the way, did you know that the hat style was also referred to as a baker boy hat?
You learn something new every day.
From a fashion standpoint, I adore the gamine edge the newsboy hat gives to more feminine styles. From a practical perspective, this specific hat is a great opportunity to mask a bad hair day. Conversely, a newsboy cap can be worn on a good hair day without completely leaving your tresses flat and lifeless.
It’s the best of both worlds.
Now, the million dollar question (actually, more like the under $50 question): where can I buy a newsboy hat? Don’t worry, I’ve got the answer for you — technically, 15 answers!
