The one thing I recommend for you all to do with your fashion is to make a statement. Don’t be scared to have your clothes say what you’re thinking… or help define who you are. As long as you’re the one determining what message is being sent, let your attire talk all it wants. I’ve always believed that your style says a lot about who you are as a person. Are you professional? High maintenance? Laid back? Abrasive? Caring? Your clothes can speak loudly and clearly, so it’s best that you narrow down what you want to say. Some messages are more abstract than others and they require some deeper analysis, but then there are those pieces in your closet that get right to the point. I know I have a few tops that read “LOVE” or “New York” and even a hoodie that has “Triumph” written in all caps, which you could say clearly relays a few things about my own personality.
Most recently, I bought this snapback that can be seen in A$AP Rocky’s “F*ckin Problem” video and it simply reads “TRILLEST,” which I am simply obsessed with. For those of you that don’t know, trill is a Southern slang word for “real.” If you’re trill, you’re honest and straight forward, so to be the trillest means that your whole character is based on being real, which I value highly. Not only does this hat show my value of an honest person, but it speaks to my urban roots and the culture I’m surrounded by. If you don’t use the word trill, then you probably won’t rock this hat, but I’m sure you can find other pieces that can help you say what you want. You don’t have to wear this snapback, if it’s not your style, but pick something out that makes a statement about who you are and own it.
