Hats can help a woman’s persona at the same time it can also hurt it. Today’s tip from Red Pyramid Company is simple, as a young lady you make the hat! But there are a few rules as a woman you should know about hats.
Rule #1: Don’t wear matchy-matchy looks.
As a woman I know how tempting it is to wear a hat that looks exactly like your shirt. But you have to realize at the age of 11, this style starts to look very immature and takes away from your persona as yopu progress into becoing a grown woman.
Rule #2: Wear Hats with prints on them.
The printed hat can make a simple outfit POP. Try out a stussy hats for example and see how it goes. It can make solid color clothes seem more so a hot commodity, you will not regret the results.
Rule #3: Don’t…

Leather Trousers; They stand for rebellion, carry sexual connotations, and generally drawn attention to the most private areas on our bodies. Leather trousers are among some of the most love/hated wardrobe guilty pleasures.
Leather alone is a statement; if they fit too tight, you’re risking the chance of not pulling off “the look”. So you are probably asking yourself, what should I wear with leather pants? Well the answer is simple… Don’t over do it. Styling should be as minimal as possible, stick with T-shirts, a dark well cut jacket, and make your shoes blend in with the trousers.
If you need inspiration, look below at the Stylistic examples given of Kanye West and A$AP Rocky, two of the biggest fashion hip-hop Icons of all time. They exemplify the options of when and where to wear them. It’s alright to style it up with your favorite Air Jordan ones…

Claude Sumner A.K.A Quez is a 17 year old Atlanta born rapper is full of personality with a special talent. Listening to Quez, you can hear it in his dialect and you can see it in his swag that he takes pride in his hometown.
Quez two biggest influences are Lil Boosie and his father. He said Boosie because “He speaks truth, He don’t sugar code nothing”. In Quez song “Memories” you can hear the similarities between Boosie and himself. Quez gives off the same dirty south feel that keeps you intrigued until the track is officially over and has you wanting more.
Quez told me multiple times, the main reason he raps, he says “I want others to know they’re not alone in their story”. Claude can relate to a lot of people that grew up in the urban city of Atlanta. Quez said his father has always been in and out of his life; he aspires to be the exact opposite.
Though Quez makes dirty south music, he also has his music girls can “twerk-sumn” to. His famous song “Squally a Thottie” has become a fan favorite all around Atlanta! He came up with the song when making a beat while listening to another one of his fan favorites “She a THOT”. Quez stated “I figured if I could make one about a THOT, then why not one about a “Squallie”. If you have not seen the infamous vine about a “Thottie and a Squallie” or Quez song check out the links(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vtRUCnvnuCk) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O-8l9tjUmSk&feature=youtu.be)
It’s so ironic that this song gives a basic overview of the type of success that Quez wants. He wants his music to bring “Joy to people and wants people to relate to his music. Let’s be honest everybody has a “Squallie” and a “thottie” at their school.
Quez wants to keep people entertained and anxious to hear what he is rapping about next, very similar to his hip-hop rushmore. Which contains Biggie, 2 Pac, T.I., and of course his favorite Lil Boosie.
Quez says his biggest fear of becoming a mainstream rapper is the outside perception that will be given off by the chorus of his song or his outward appearance.
YES! Quez has dreadlocks… YES! Quez might let his pants sag…. YES! Quez has family members that sell drugs. But did you know Quez is a successful African American Male and is graduating on time in June… no you did not. Claude Sumner is just a 17 year old senior in High School who aspires and has the potential to be a great rapper.
He stays humble with his favorite quote, “I’d rather eat crumbs with the bums than to eat steaks with the snakes”.
Are you going to eat with the snakes or are you going to wait for your perfect opportunity like Quez?
