Mini Trend: Baseball Hats

These sporty mainstays are popping up in all new ways.

After spring’s dalliance with athletic-inspired everything—perforation, varsity jackets, and wedge sneakers, to name a few—it seems only fitting that headwear would move beyond fedoras and Panamas to the playful world of baseball caps. But take note: no team logos allowed. Instead, these cheeky caps are reimagined with a style-centric spin. Try feminine lace. Sassy studs. Shiny silver. Luxe leather.

Here’s the key to making sure the cap says trendy, not “bad-hair day”: Balance the tomboyish vibe by keeping the rest of your look polished and girly. Pair with a cute little sundress, or skinny jeans and feminine stiletto pumps. Wear your hair down, in loose waves. Maybe add a swipe of ultra-bright lipstick.
