Snapback vs Full Cap

Snapback M&N Chicago Bulls

Full Cap New Era Atlanta

Some people say that Full Caps looks better. For me Snapbacks are more practical. It has seven possible sizes so it fit on every head. Few months ago snapbacks became very popular. American superstars started to promote them. They wore it everywhere. On the street, during the concerts, on the beach. 

Full Caps became famous at the end of the XX century. Baseball players started to wear them during the games. Now every baseball fan have the Yankees or Red Sox's cap.

So, which do you prefer, Snapback vs Full Cap?

Hi! My name is Gabi. My passion is music. I like photography and fashion too. Sometimes I design clothes. I like pastel colors, lace, bows, cute things, dresses. I love bows and floral motifs. I'm really interested in retro style and fashion of the 30s, 50s and 60s too (ex-pin up). But I`m not interested just in old fashion. I enjoy contemporary fashion too.
Way of dressing has long been associated with expressing and presenting our own mood and character. For several years in fashion, however, there has been a major breakthrough. It was a milestone in the field of art.
I`ll try to show you here what changes have occurred and what teenagers wear now, what brands are trendy and what you should have in your wardrobe if you want to dress fashionably :D
