Yes, You CAN Make a Baseball Cap Look Chic (Here's How!)
For several seasons now, sporty style has been a favorite look for fashionistas who like to keep it casual and low key. One of the go-to pieces for pulling off this look: the baseball cap. While this piece can take some warming up to, hear us out: It's the perfect way to add an unexpected casual detail to a dressed up look. Still don't believe us? Check out these three looks that elevate the baseball cap from sports game essential to stylish.
1. Fab in Flannel
A gray marl midi skirt ($19.99, Ally Fashion) provides the perfect balance of sophistication and sporty - so what better way to wear it than with a faux leather baseball cap ($24, Abercrombie)? Add a bit of casual color with a navy and green flannel ($14.33, Sheinside) - try wearing it half-tucked into your skirt! Metallic ankle boots ($96, Charles & Keith) look totally unexpected with the dark colors in the rest of your outfit. Compete your outfit by adding some subtler sparkle with a gunmetal cuff ($8, Boohoo).
A baseball cap ($24, Nordstrom) has super laid-back, sporty vibes, which makes it the perfect piece to wear with a sharp, tailored blazer ($34.95, H&M) - the contrast of the two pieces worn together looks amazing. When wearing a blazer for an off-duty look, it's always a good idea to keep the rest of your look really dressed down - a crop top ($14.04, Glamorous) and studded sneakers ($45.97, Shoes.com) will do the trick! Lace hem shorts ($20, Boohoo) add a feminine touch to the rest of your look.
3. All Dressed Up
When in doubt with a statement accessory like a chambray baseball cap ($39, Intermix), keep your look minimalist and pared-down. The perfect pick? A simple leather-look cami dress ($27, H&M). Ditto for your accessories - a no-frills bucket bag ($24.90, Forever 21) and Birkenstocks ($90, ASOS) look chic, but won't overwhelm your outfit. A statement cuff ($32, Macy's) adds detail without being over-the-top, and let's be real - every good summer outfit includes the perfect pair of sunnies ($5.90, Forever 21).
