Snap Back Stylin'

Salaam Apparel Snapback




By 'eck its been a while since I wore a snap back. In my ''skater days'' i.e trying to learn to skate and failing whilst simultaneously dripping in brands such as Adio, DC and lets not forget Volcom, I had a nice lil collection of snapback/hats that perfectly complemented the skater rapport [ahem] I was trying to go for. Oh what the hell, basically guys, basically I wanted to be Avril Lavigne ok? So when I was asked if I fancied styling up a snap back from the guys at Salaam Apparel I got a little nostalgic and thought why the heck not. It couldn't have come at a better time because:


1) Storm Dorris has been a right old cow reeking absolute havoc on my hair, ain't nobody got time fo that

2) My roots are fricking ridiculous 

3) I'd been wanting to give the snap back thing another go but not knowing how to go about it or where for that matter

I opted for a dreamy Burgundy colour, [girls got a thing about Burgundy] with a peace sign stitched on the back cos I love everyone and I'm about the hippy life, or so James keeps telling me. I had a dig about my wardrobe and accidentally put together a very Jess circa 2008/9 outfit and it made me realise I kinda missed it. I missed wearing plaid shirts, I missed living in my vans and I missed wearing a snapback. As mush as I do love dressing on the weird side, sometimes its nice to go back to what you known where you came from with style. Shout out to me for still managing to include the jeans/fishnet combo into the mix. I told you in my last post I'd be finding any excuse to do so. It's just a shame Dorris made my thighs really cold.

Have you been busting out any nostalgic pieces from your wardrobe? How would you have styled    this snap back? I'd love to know in the comments below <3

  2. This is a very me outfit. Up until maybe 2 years ago I didn't wear anything other than skinny jeans, a band tee, a plaid shirt, beanie or snapback and either converse or vans. And still to this day it's a go to outfit for me.
    I'm loving the fishnets under the jeans! Wish I could find some ripped jeans I like on so I could try this out myself!
    PS. Awesome location

  4. I love this outfit it's very skater girl-ish. The snapback's amazing too, I especially adore the Arabic calligraphy on the side. I might as well cop one too. The location you've scouted fits very well!
