If you asked me a few years ago about my hot take on baseball caps, here’s what I’d say: “Eh, they’re pretty boring. Not my style, period.” I normally associated baseball caps with sports teams or hats my mom wore when she didn’t feel like doing her hair. The backseat of my dad’s Jeep always had a baseball cap or two just laying there, motionless and looking a little worse for wear as it molted in the California sun. So, baseball hats just reminded me of hot cars and a lack of style options.
Welp…look at me now.
Yes, I’ve been converted to a baseball cap fan. Admittedly (yikes), the rise of “normcore” fashion brought the humble baseball cap to my attention once more, and I realized that there’s some untapped charm to them. They’re light, they keep the sun out of your eyes, and they can top off a cute and casual outfit really nicely. Plus, to my surprise, there are actually a lot of really cool baseball caps out there with cool designs and funny phrases. Intrigued? Check out these 11 baseball caps that’ll really make you stand out. If you cop one, don’t resist the urge to take a zillion selfies.
