3. FAB: This Minnie Mouse Obama/Biden ear hat

Love the use of the mouse ears. I can find zero signs of drab in this one. ZERO.

4. DRAB: This guy with a spiky blonde wig visor

This violates every rule in fab or drab. Visors + Guy Fieri hair are the #1 and #2 most drabbest things in my book. DRAB.

So fab I can’t even take it!!!!! In fashion, sometimes it’s the little things that count.

ID: 565232

13. DRAB: This sequined visor


ID: 565212

14. DRAB: This color mess

Neon mixed with rainbow is always a big fat flop! A fashion no!

15. DRAB: (Another) 1920s guy

Wrong era, dude!

ID: 565214

16. FAB: This Barack and Michelle silhouette vest

I know this violates my “Right Color At The Right Convention” rule, but I’m a sucker for a good silhouette vest.

ID: 565234

17. DRAB: This rainbow tentacle hat

Like, what is this? WHAT. IS. THIS?! It’s like his hat got in a fight with some rainbow-colored octopus and lost. Drab.

It’s not Christmas! Leave it in the attic, lady!

A twist to a traditionally simple item of clothing. Def fab.

Another example of attitude owning style. Take note gentleman, own your fabness! It’s in you all.

ID: 565236

31. FAB: Loretta Harper

Loretta, you went above and beyond. I wish I could give you more than this little “fab.”

ID: 565233

32. FRAB: This hat

Remember, Frab = fab and drab combined.

So anyways, let me explain my choice on this one. I love the effort, I really do. I love the concept, and I’ve even warmed up to beanie babies on hats. It’s just the execution. TAKE THE TAGS OFF YOUR BEANIE, THEY AREN’T WORTH ANYTHING ANYMORE.

33. FAB: Buffalo soldier dude

Gold suspenders are big right now.

ID: 565237

Again with the red, but tiny hats are always in. Also, the peace sign is a cute little detail. Good effort.

ID: 565255

35. FAB: Obobblehead hat


ID: 565240

36. FRAB:

It’s creative, but not really a thing. Like, who wears license plates anymore?!

ID: 565259

37. FAB: This Michelle Obama dress

Love this choice! I was getting so sick of seeing “Obama” all over everything, and then I saw this dress. It’s unconventional and different. FAB!

ID: 565242

38. FAB: Uterus hat girl

It’s a uterus… on a hat. Fab!

ID: 565246

39. FRAB:

I love the Obama logo detail, I just can’t do the red. Frab for sure.

ID: 565258

Colors are in this season, and this hat is FAB.

The end.
