What it is?
Interestingly selected headdress can complete the whole look, make a stylish accent and it can even become the centre of your look.
Headdress such as baseball cap, thanks to its’ variety of styles, colours and textures, can become a great addition to a modern, youthful wardrobe.
Initially baseball cap was a headdress with a large semicircular visor used as part of the sportswear of baseball players. However, as it started to become popular all over the world, baseball cap became a everyday accessory.
What is the difference between cap and baseball cap?
Most of the people don’t see the difference between cap and baseball cap. However, a cap can be considered different kinds of headdress with visor, while baseball cap is a specific type of headdress, which is sewed from 6 wedges connected with a special button at the top. Brand’s logo, picture or text is usually on one of these wedges, right next to a visor. A buckle is sewn behind the back for convenient adjustment of the size. A distinctive feature of the baseball cap is that the visor is always slightly bent.
Trendy styles and models
Initially baseball fans used to wear baseball caps to support their favourite team. This tradition is alive and well in the USA even today. These baseball caps are actively worn and even collected. One of the best examples is Leonardo di Caprio, who has an extensive collection of baseball caps with the names of university sports teams.
Cap is a headdress softer than a baseball cap, with a small, flexible visor and mostly without a fastener behind. This model is also very popular, and it has summer and winter versions. Cleverly selected, this headpiece can give its’ owner a solid or even extravagant look.
With ear flaps
Baseball caps with ear flaps became popular not so long ago, only about 2 years ago, but already firmly entrenched in designer collections on the catwalks and in the lives of ordinary people due to the convenience and unusual shape.
Baseball cap with fastening is simply irreplaceable for travellers and fans of active recreation, because it is possible to fix a camera on it easily. This allows you to free your hands and it does not reduce the convenience of shooting. It is also an ideal option for those who are uncomfortable using a standard head mount in the form of adjustable elastics.
Hockey fans dream to acquire an original and stylish baseball cap with a straight or classic visor with the symbols of their favourite team. Often, such a baseball cap is also selected depending on the colour preferences and compatibility with the existing wardrobe. Unless, of course, we are talking about collecting.
KHL caps with numbers
Baseball caps with the symbols of the Kontinental Hockey League are made from 100% cotton, and the numbers are made with volumetric embroidery threads. They are incredibly popular among fans, but they are not only worn at hockey matches, but also in ordinary life, combined with jeans and quilted jackets.
Rapper baseball caps are very popular among the younger generation, which deliberately emphasizes the activity and rebellious nature. These baseball caps are characterized by intense colours, bright prints and bulky visors.

It can be combined with a multi-coloured scarf tied around it. This gives the headdress a more refined look and allows you to combine it with summer dresses, shorts, tops and jeans. Also white baseball cap will look wonderful combined with light coloured or completely white clothes.
Red baseball cap looks bright, and in order not to overload the look, do not make other bright accents. For example, the combination of such baseball cap with a denim shirt and leggings or a denim overall and a white T-shirt will look stylish, youthful and unobtrusive.
Camouflage print has long been a distinctive feature of the street style, and it is constantly coming in fashion.
Camouflage baseball cap fits perfectly into the military or casual style, and thanks to the variety of camouflage types, it can easily be selected depending on the colour preferences of the outfit.
In addition, talking about tourism, camouflage baseball cap is almost an obligatory accessory for men. Baseball caps with a straight wide visor are popular among young people, and the ones with longer visor are popular among the older generation, as they are more practical and better protect their eyes from the sun.
Blue, just like gray, is chosen by those who prefer more preppy look. If you’re a fan of this look, wearing a baseball cap is acceptable, but it should be solid coloured, classy and look expensive.
You can combine such baseball cap with a coat, raincoat or an elongated jacket. It is necessary to avoid bright colours and other non-standard solutions that will not be in harmony with the classical style and may not look appropriate.
Black and White
Stylists say that black and white baseball caps will look great on men with beard. A bright combination of classic colours and brand name makes this baseball cap bright and steep. It will suit almost any style, except for the classical one.
With a skull
Skulls became fashionable in the 18th century. In Europe, soldiers ordered badges with a skull and pinned them on their uniforms. Now skull prints are incredibly popular, they can be seen on men’s, women’s clothes and even clothes for babies. Psychologists believe that people who wear such clothes, throw a challenge to society. Baseball cap with a skull obviously won’t be a good choice for shy people who do not want to attract extra attention to themselves.
Fleece baseball cap is a good choice for spring-autumn season. Fleece is very comfortable and pleasant to the touch. These baseball caps perfectly retain heat and give a sense of comfort.
There are models that are made entirely of fleece, and those with a fleece lining. Both can be worn with quilted jackets and coats.

Sometimes caps are made out of leather and denim.

How to choose?
Nowadays you can choose your perfect baseball cap from vide variety of colours and styles. Therefore, before buying it, it is necessary to determine the criteria for choosing a headdress and to learn some subtleties.
For example, it is better for young girls to choose baseball caps with a high top and a straight visor.
You need to take into account the shape of your face when choosing a baseball cap – broad faced people should not choose a wide visor, as it will add to the extra volume, and people with round cheeks need to choose a baseball cap with a long visor.
Also, when choosing, it is worth paying attention to whether there is a clasp on the baseball cap. It will be especially relevant for girls who, depending on the hairstyle, can tighten or loosen the buckle.
Summer models are equipped with eyelets or a grid to ensure the ventilation of the head.
How to wear baseball cap?
Baseball caps are usually worn with a visor placed forward. Youth models can be slightly turned to one side and thereby give a more playful and free look. Or turn the visor back and create a more rebellious look.
Stylists do not agree on one way to wear a baseball cap with a straight visor. For example, fans of rap and hip-hop wear such baseball cap over the bandana or combine a baseball cap with a scarf twisted around it.
If there is an emblem of the sports team on the cap, then, as a rule, it should be worn with a visor placed forward.
Adults should not turn the visor back, as visually it adds a few years.
