I don't drive a truck. Nor do I play a truck driver on TV....
However....I find myself powerless against the trucker hat phase of 2015 that is upon us. I just dig it. Its trendy, practical, and old school with a new school vibe thanks to catchy phrases and graphic prints that give my jeans and t shirt addiction a little pop of modern. I plan on adding this little gem to my collection soon:
(also black and jungle green are straight up my color jam right now.)
Here are a few inspiring trucker hat photos to show how never-ending the styling options can be. No matter what your personal style, these hats can become a summer staple in your wardrobe.
Go girly with designer Lauren Moshi's Love Bird hat
(let me save you a click - its sold out)
You cant go wrong with floral - if Gwen Stefani is doing it, you should be too!
Check out Nicole Scherzinger (of the pussycat dolls) rocking one of my favorite color combos red, black and white.
You can pull of this same look with Cents of Style's LOVE hat: here
and even though Pharell Williams has been the victim of this buffalo hat in the past:
He redeems himself completely when he dons the trucker version (but lets overlook the star trek hand shall we??)
Take a cue from model Cara Delevigne and don your hat backwards...its edgy. I like it.
If you need to go out in public without being recognized (you know, for frequent trips to your local krispy kreme, or just a casual drive past your ex's house to make sure his new girlfriend is 100% less cool than you...) I highly recommend pairing something like this amazing black leather version with some giant shades. Annalynne McCord nailed it.
And last but not least - unleash your inner animal with an adorable Leopard print hat like this one:
I can totally envision this paired up with some black skinnies and a hot pink t shirt.
Whether you wear it forwards or backwards, go girly with florals or birds, love graphic prints, or catchy phrases and especially if you're over the blow dryer lately... you really cant go wrong in a trucker hat this summer. Unless you're Brittney Spears and you're wearing it circa 2007 to hide your newly shaved head. In that case just stay inside. and cry.
