Hat association time! Bucket hats = fishermen and LL Cool J, respectively. Bowler hats = tap dancers. Top hats = that Planter’s peanut guy with the monocle. Sunhats = elderly ladies on the beach. Baseball hats = your respective fathers, baseballers (obviously), and… high fashion?!
My most recent recollections of baseball caps revolve around notions of cheesy holiday souvenirs (alongside equally cheesy t-shirts), all my hypebeast-y friends, and irony-inducing kitsch (like the ~vintage~ Toronto Blue Jays cap). However, baseball hats have adapted a very fashion savvy following as of late, and hence, my understanding of their relevance is rapidly evolving. I’m also not so passive about their practicality, either, so I guess that’s a good thing too.
Or you could do both the baseball cap and sneaker combo for ultimate casual trendiness!!!!
Regardless if your cap is emblazoned with Nike or Supreme, a baseball cap really adds a ~casual~ vibe to even the ~fanciest~ outfits.
See? Unbranded works too. Especially if it’s solid black leather….he he he.
So, to make use of yet another hat-related opportunity, retire your beanies and fedoras…because (as the title of this post suggests), baseball caps should not be shunned! Maybe retire your bucket hat, though, because those aren’t going to be cool for a while…
