The classic newsie hat is a statement piece that has been around for a really long time! With it being a fairly staple part of mens fashion, I usually suggest using it in a more formal way instead of urban (Pairing it with a button up and vest instead of a graphic tee). I don’t know, it just seems typical of a mall store to pair it with a t shirt and jeans, not that there is anything wrong with that. I just think that it should be used sparingly and most often in it’s most classic and pure form. I’ve seen it used as a fashion cop out for like…forever, and I would just really like to see it used in some new and creative ways because the cap itself is a GREAT accessory! For something basic, pair it with a simple white t shirt and jeans with some combat boots. To pump it up a bit, try pairing it with a leather jacket, button up, funky bow tie, and dress loafers! It’s a look you’ll KILL no doubt!
For the ladies, you can actually get away with a lot more since it’s a little less common to begin with. Pair it with a dressed up trouser, oversized sweater and simple pumps or try it with leggings and a 4 XL belted button up and leggings (Just make sure the shirt is LONG. Good gravy people! No one wants to see your cheekage in the fashion world!) for a little bit more of a street smart attempt at the newsie hat.
With that being said, here are some of my favorite photo examples of how to rock it!

Love the style the four guys have in that picture. What a great photo!
