This is not the first season, and certainly not the last, the baseball cap has been unshakably holding the leading position in popularity among hats all over the world. As soon as they have gone beyond the scope of an accessory for athletes, a baseball cap is a permanent inhabitant of the everyday wardrobes of citizens. This is a stylish, versatile, practical and functional accessory that protects our heads from the sun, bad weather and gives the image of energy, enthusiasm, youth. Eminent fashion designers and designers each season create new and varied versions of models, using different materials and decorations, thanks to which baseball caps sometimes not only complement or complete the created image, but also create it. Presented in a wide range of different styles, each of which is interesting in its own way, they can be easily combined with any piece of Casual wardrobe, even with dresses, skirts, heels or jackets. In addition, baseball caps are unisex.
An ideal option for any wardrobe is to have several different types of baseball caps. Or you can purchase a simple model, to which it will be easiest to choose sets of clothes: plain (white or black), without any decorative elements and inscriptions.
Before you decide on the model that suits you, you need to consider some points:
— A baseball cap should be made of quality fabrics and materials.
— when choosing a specific model of a baseball cap, keep in mind that each style has its own type of visor. This is necessary in order to understand how this or that visor will be appropriate for the occasion. For example, if you will be wearing this hat while driving (be it a car, a bicycle, a scooter or even roller skates), then it is better if the visor of the baseball cap is straight and not too long.
— absolutely any model of a baseball cap must be equipped with a special absorbent firmware that absorbs moisture. Otherwise, from the heat, your skin may become irritated in the form of a rash, and your head will overheat. In addition to the stitching, the baseball caps have eyelets to prevent overheating. And it is better if they are made of metal than plastic, as they will last much longer.
— it is better if the baseball cap can be adjusted to the size of your head. Adjustment can be made in different ways (elastic band, Velcro, plastic or metal clasp), but thanks to it you can achieve the perfect fit of the headgear on your head.
- Plastic is an inexpensive option for promotional baseball caps;
- Velcro (Velcro) — a universal and convenient fastener, but not the most durable;
- A metal buckle is the most expensive and durable option. A logo or an inscription can be applied to the metal buckle;
- Elastic band — an elastic band sewn into the edge of the headgear perfectly replaces the fastener. A comfortable baseball cap with an elastic band will be a particularly good gift for children.
And now directly about the varieties of this accessory with a sports past.
- A classic among baseball caps is considered to be a model sewn from six parts (the so-called «petals»), which converge at the base and are connected by a round button. It is also called «Needle Cap». On the front, as a rule, there is a brand logo — the manufacturer, and on the back — a fastener for adjusting the size. As a rule, they are worn with a visor forward, slightly bending it. This is the most versatile option, suitable for everyone without exception.
- The Snapback option closest to sports baseball caps is a model of six “petals”, with a straight, flat, rounded and wide visor. In this model, the back of the head is somewhat pressed down. This cap should not be too tight on the head and not look overly wide. It so happened that «snapbacks» are especially preferred by representatives of rep culture, who often wear them over a bandana and with a visor back.
- The 5-panel cap is very popular. This A-shaped headpiece with a flat, rectangular visor can be worn with the visor forward or sideways.
- A lot of controversy in fashion circles is caused by the “trucker cap” or, as it is also called, “trucker”. Someone believes that such models are unacceptable in the everyday wardrobe of an urban fashionista and fashionista, while others, on the contrary, choose them as the best summer option for hot days. «Trackers» necessarily have a clasp at the back and a semicircular visor, they are distinguished by a rather voluminous front part and the presence of a mesh, thanks to which good ventilation is provided to the head. These hats are perfect for those with round faces.
- Have the right to a place in the wardrobe and bike caps, even if you ride a bike. They are lightweight, breathable, and look a lot like baseball caps. The number of panels from which the cap is sewn can be different, but no more than six, of course. This headdress is distinguished by the absence of a fastener and a short, rounded visor, which is worn either straight or turned up.
By the way, models with a short visor are most suitable for people with a small face and a miniature build. Also, owners of short and medium height should choose high six-panel caps with a straight peak. Therefore, high should avoid such models. If you have a wide face, you should not take a cap with a wide visor, as it will visually add volume to your head. But the narrow-faced narrow visor does not harm in any way.
When choosing a set of clothes for a baseball cap, first of all, you should consider the color combination. There are completely monophonic models, and there are those that differ from the main color, for example, a button, wedges or a visor. This does not mean that your outfit should have exactly the same color, it can be a shade or a color that matches perfectly with it. If your headdress is bright, saturated with colors, decorated with prints or decorative elements, then you should choose discreet clothing in neutral tones. A baseball cap can be matched to the color of any accessory, bag or shoes.
Jeans, T-shirt, sweatpants, jacket, coat, dress, skirt, shorts…. — you can choose an option for any item of your everyday wardrobe. Now baseball caps and their varieties can be worn even in classic formal clothes, the main thing is to think carefully and carefully about this combination. Although the baseball cap came from sports, with it your image may well look romantic, and brutal, and solid, and bold, and sexy.
You won’t go wrong if you get a baseball cap made of denim and leather in your arsenal, and you should also pay attention to models that are fashionable in the spring-summer 2022 season: with animal and floral prints, with “ears”, decorated with lace, embroidery, sequins and rhinestones. Just do not forget about your age: if you are in solid years, then your option is monophonic calm and neutral colors, a minimum of decor and no inscriptions, symbols, etc. And also, you should not wear a baseball cap with a visor on its side or back.
