Twins Nicole and Natalie Albino--better known as the R&B duo Nina Sky--visited the Latina offices this week to play cuts from their upcoming album (very hot, by the way), and I couldn’t help but notice, along with everyone else in the room, Nicole’s warm and oh-so-fashionable trapper hat. Now, I know that many of us are against wearing real fur; but, ladies, it is a huge trend this fall whether we like it or not! Plus, the way Nicole paired her furry hat with an old heather grey Mickey Mouse T-shirt (on loan from her 'sis) looked uber-chic and effortless.
Nicole's look also reminded me of Latina’s November fashion feature, “Love Supreme,” in which Dominican model Mar Flores sported a very similar hat on our pages. Seeing Nicole and Mar side to side only proves that we Latinas are always stylishly on point.
Not to be left out, Natalie also has a strong fashion sense. Check out this You Tube clip of Ms. Albino modeling her own T-shirt designs for the new clothing line, Made Me (mademeclothing.com), while sister Nicole shows her love behind the scenes....because that's what hermanas are for.
