It’s Time To Get a Luxurious Baseball Cap. Just Ask Rihanna, Katie, Hailey, and Kim

  • 8034

Putting on a hat is one of the easiest ways to add visual interest to an outfit. Fuzzy bucket hats, embellished Stetsons, and patterned pageboys are currently trending with celebrities, but don’t underestimate the power of the humble baseball cap. Nearly everyone has the MLB staple somewhere in their closet, and most keep their outfits sporty when wearing them. The new take on the look is to contrast the casual headgear with otherwise dressy fashions, as evidenced by Rihanna, Kim Kardashian, and Emily Ratajkowski.

When Kardashian headed out for dinner last night in Rome, she could have worn her John Galliano for Dior cherry slip dress with a fascinator or beret. Instead, the reality star paired her luxurious vintage find with Idea Plant’s “Seeds” hat. The cheeky cap with a marijuana leaf patch on its brim was unexpected and added to the outfit’s sense of whimsy.

Rihanna, ever the early adopter, has been pairing baseball caps with her outfits for years. This morning when she headed out to meetings in Manhattan, she mixed Junya Watanabe’s oversized blazer, a mini-purse from Goyard, and a black and white hat from R13. With her grey color scheme and pinstripes, Rihanna’s outfit could have been all-business, but the final touch kept things cool.

There are countless ways to pull off the trend—Katie Holmes’ normcore separates and black cap combo, Hailey Bieber’s yellow hat accenting an entire Bottega Veneta runway look—but it all begins with the right hat. Below, a rundown of the best baseball caps of the moment.
