We have officially hit the month of April and Spring is in the air...or should we say in our hair? One of the biggest looks for headwear from Fall is staying with us for the warm weather and then will be us in the Fall for 2014 again. That's right, we are talking about snapbacks. The baseball cap was a NYFW show stopper. We spotted this look on the Spring 2013 runways of Alexander Wang, Cynthia Rowley, DKNY and many Fall 2014 catwalks as well.
Whether you decide to rep your favorite team or throw on a major metallic cap, rocking a snapback will enhance your style by adding a touch of tough-luxe us women are in need of from time-to-time. If you're not feeling so tough, at least try one of the printed floral styles, as it will keep your femininity grounded and in tact.

San Diego-based Charlotte Russe announced that it was considering selling the company last week, but for now, they are focusing on a merchandising re-direct. First, Emilia Fabricant is now president and chief merchandising officer of the mall-based chain. Her goal is to move the retailer out of the realm generic mall store and into a higher-end bracket. To help with this, Fabricant tapped lead Gossip Girl stylist, Eric Daman, as a consulting creative director and signed Susie Castillo, the former MTVVJ, as the brand’s ambassador. Fabricant wants the focus of the product to be placed on value and to increase the customer base from 16 to 24-year-olds to 16 to 29-year-olds. The now exclusive to Charlotte Russe, People’s Liberation line, is expected to help with meeting these goals as well. [wwd]
Seeing that the retailer has fallen into the red, I just hope that this makeover is not already too late.
