Football season is on its way out and basketball season is in full-swing, therefore it’s officially okay to start thinking about baseball season! And if you are like us you are already planning your outfits (maybe this is more of a girl thing) for the season! Well, we have great news for the ladies and gents about some new Astros baseball caps you’ll want to add to the wardrobe/collection.

The Houston Astros and hip hop icon Bun B have teamed up with New Era to design and release three limited-edition Astros caps. These babies are HAWT and will have you lookin’ so fly. All three styles are 9FIFTY snap or strapbacks. For the casual fan, the white and orange cap features the current Astros logo positioned to note the location of Houston on an outline of the state of Texas and retails for $34.99. For more fashion forward fans, there is black cap with a faux leather visor and glow-in-the-dark logos as well as reflective taping around the rear arch retailing for $39.99. And finally, a premium version with faux leather crown, visor and strap retails for $49.99.

How fitting is it that we would have two distinctly different styles and would more than likely rock the caps completely different. We thought we’d have some fun with the caps, since they also represent and bring different styles. So without talking about which we would choose or how we would pull our looks together, we went to work and here’s what we came up with…

For me it was about going into my closet and pulling this look together as if I were really going to a game, yeah I wanted to get in the spirit because I think the caps are super cute. Since I’m a huge sports fan I really like representing my favorite teams by sporting some signature/logo gear. However, it must have me written all over the look for me to really get into it. I’ve always been a fan of the Astros colors, so I knew exactly how I wanted to rock the look. By focusing on one of my power colors [orange] and accenting with one of my favorite accessories [a scarf]. I think the powerful orange jacket draws your eyes to me, but the cap is the star. How do you think I did?

Just a few years back, I owned no more than 2 pairs of jeans. The corporate job world reigned over my wardrobe for a majority of my life. Fast forward to now…I am an official jean girl and appreciate the fact that I can rock them with stilettos or my favorite pair of “chucks”, or as some my refer to as Converse. As with shoes in many of my outfit choices, I started with my hat. Bright in appearance and using orange as the pop of color, I wanted the baseball cap to shine and everything else to fall right in place. To keep with the lighter color scheme I went with a light washed jean, paired with a white tee, white sneakers, and a light grey watch. The blue silk bomber jacket added a bit of depth and drama to this minimalistic style. This look in perfect for a day out, bad hair day, sporting a casual look, finding a reason to put the “tongue” out on your chucks, and of course, attending an Astros game!

*The caps are only available at Academy Sports + Outdoors and the Astros stores in Minute Maid Park.
