Hats! Not any just run of the mill ball cap either. The new rhinestone authentic and certified collegiate cap in a variety of cobalt, kelly green, mustard or bright red are great for that Saturday dress down look, especially riding with the top down in Brookside, but I’m talking the latest trends, the type of hats you can wear out on a Saturday night with jeans and a fierce, sexy top or with a jean skirt and boots (which by the way is also quite a spring trend).
