Hat Du Jour: The Baseball Cap

If you’ve recently spent anytime on street-style blogs, chances are you’ve noticed that baseball caps are popping up on style-setters’ heads from NY to Paris, and everywhere in between. The baseball cap is the new sought-after headgear in fashion circles. The off-duty hat has been getting the high-fashion treatment since designers like Kenzo and Karen Walker featured it in their Spring 2012 collections. Yet another style homage to the ‘90s and the sport-influenced moment we are currently experiencing, the baseball cap is a fun and easy way to inject a hint of streetwear edge to everything in your closet.

And we do mean everything.

It goes perfectly with a myriad of looks from dressy frocks to casual ensembles. The cap is the new beanie. The same way that slouchy beanies went from a cold weather essential to a hipster must-have donned with everything, and in any season, the baseball cap is resurfacing as the newest accessory of choice.

Here are some looks that will totally inspire you to test drive this trend, if you haven’t already.

I’m a huge fan of Basso & Brooke’s prints, so when they released a limited edition collection of baseball caps in their kaleidoscope digital prints, I knew I had to get my hands on one! This particular style I’m wearing here is currently sold out but there are a slew of other options still available here.
