Beyonce and her new longer short hair have just graced Coney Island, Brooklyn with their angelic joint presence! Rumored to have been shooting a music video (with Terry Richardson, no less), Mrs. Carter's Cyclone-riding ensemble definitely out-does anything we've ever worn to an amusement park. At its foundation, it's actually a pretty basic 'fit, but it's Bey's accessories that really turns this up to another decibel with GOBS of gold drenching her clavicle and right wrist and choice hat game. Bey K. takes this opportunity riding Brooklyn's most infamous rollercoaster to rep another BK icon: The Notorious B.I.G., wearing Biggie on her snapback trucker hat.

After almost a YEAR of built-up anticipation via paparazzi shots and Instagram snaps, we're finally getting to see some footage from Harmony Korine's Spring Breakers. We've pulled ourselves out of the *deeeeep inhale and then monstrous yawn* daybreak hours, the legendary director is finally letting us see the trailer. As we imagined from the teaser photos of the girls getting arrested and wielding guns and ski masks, the movie's PYT stars Selena Gomez, Ashley Benson, Vanessa Hudgens, and Rachel Korine unfurl before your eyes into gritty, grimey characters like you've never seen them before.
Riff Raff-channeling James Franco makes his grand entrance just before the minute mark and Gucci Mane follows soon after. While we still have yet to see how rumored co-star Heather Morris will play out in this story, the trailer is simultaneously tiding us over and amping up our excitement for the movie's official release. Mark your calendars, y'all: Spring Breakers opens March 22 in New York and Los Angeles and nationwide on March 29.
On the inescapable (for us, anyway) style side of things, the trailer is also helping us beat the winter blahs with its Spring Break wardrobe realness. We all agreed that shopping for swimsuits in January was pushing the calendar a little bit, but we did track down some of the movie's style essentials so you can cop the Spring Breakers look now. You're welcome!

Y'all already know how much we love snapbacks, but we can't stop spotting a new version of our ol' go-to accessory—the leather snapback. Not only is this cap an amazing homage to late '80s/early '90s fashion (um, haiii Janet Jackson in Rhythm Nation), but it's also totally warm (and practical!) option for those blustery winter days. Now if you're thinking, "Wha? Are you telling me a leather baseball cap is back in style?" The answer, friends, is yes. And we have proof! Rihanna, Kat Graham, Ciara and Brandy all sported leather caps within the past year and looked TOTALLY. KILLER. while doing so. Ri sizzled in a snapback with a snake on it (!!!) while performing in London last summer; Kat went grunge in a Nirvana tee and patent leather Alife cap last spring; Ciara stole the spotlight in a leather cap onstage in December; and Brandy oozed casual-cool style while spotted in the street in October.

haven't convinced you that snapbacks
have officially returned? Then get ready for some SERIOUS persuasion, courtesy of our girl Iggy Azalea.
Between modeling for Henry Holland, hitting magazine covers
, and doing her rap thing onstage, the Australian hip-hop star has sometime found time to create some custom snapbacks for online retailer Community54
. She tweeted
out the news last night, saying "I teamed up with @community54 and made 54 limited edition #azalean snapbacks!" The black, white and purple hats are super exclusive... so exclusive, in fact, that only 54 are up for grabs. So you'd better make moves and snag one for yourself STAT.
Girls want snapbacks too!

Listen, we LOVE snapback caps, and to be honest, we've been getting a wee bit jealous that mostly dudes are sporting this throwback hat trend. We got inspired by Rihanna's sneaker and snapback street style as of late, and thought, "DANG. We want to sport some fun and summery hats with our ensembles this season!" So that's exactly what we did—we scoured the internet to find the coolest caps for y'all, and to be TOTALLY honest (again), most of them were found in the men's section. (What gives?) But boy or girl aside, the hats are adjustable in the back (hence the name, snapback) to fit your head oh-so-perfectly. One of our favorite finds for this summer is the NEFF Donut snapback ($24) with, yes, rainbow sprinkles (!!!) all over the top. Basically, this turns your head into an instant chocolate confection, which is amazing for obvious reasons.
