Some individuals are hat people and some aren't, right? Well, it's not quite as simple as that. Even if you've never considered yourself a hat person, when you find that perfect baseball cap, you can go from being indifferent to the wearing of baseball caps to never leaving the house without one. What you may or may not know is that with the right baseball cap, you can accomplish any number of things.
What makes a person prefer wearing a baseball cap? For some, they enjoy being able to take a look that screams, "I am totally put together," to a look that says, "Hey, I am super relaxed and casual." For some, it's a weekend fixture and a personal signature. Some people are just trying to keep the sun out of their eyes or the hair off their face. Regardless, when you put the right amount of thought into your choice of hat, it goes a long way.
We're going to run through five basic styles of caps so that you can make a more informed choice as to what you prefer.
The Dad Hat
It doesn't take a lot of imagination to figure out what style this is. Back in the early 80s, young people saw the Polo Ralph Lauren soft style and began wearing them. Soon they were not just a signature of fathers everywhere but uber prepsters, as well.
If the dad hat sounds like your kind of hat, opt for one in a unique texture or hue. You don't necessarily need a logo with this style. If you've got a head that's hard to fit, your soft style hat can be improved upon by the snapback variety. (see below).
The Trucker Hat
Other than truckers and a select few other guys, this isn't super popular, nor is it one of the most highly recommended by fashionistas. It does, however, have a place in hat choices. For many of us, Ed Hardy comes to mind when we see a hat like this. Which is probably not a good thing, in many ways.
That said, however, it provides a cooler fit, which is preferable under some conditions, and is breathable thanks to the mesh panel.
If you’re going to wear a trucker hat, proceed with caution. But it will work well on a boat, camping trip, or as part of a costume.
5 Panel Hat
This hat is for anyone with a head. Sounds silly, but it's true. Wear it with a detailed pattern, without, with a logo or without, and in any color. This hat is one of the most popular choices for good reason – it's flawless.
The Fitted Hat
When you want to represent love for your city, your team, etc., the fitted cap is the hat you will choose. It's not one that you can typically grab off-the-shelf, however. These hats are sized and will not offer a comfortable fit to anyone who isn't wearing the right size.
As mentioned earlier, for hard to fit heads, and for everyone else on the planet, this is the hat of choice in most any case. It goes with images representing California cool to hipster and from preppy to athleisure. It is the favorite among many. Grab one in a darker color and it will go with the most any outfit.
Hat Heaven Tells It Like It Is!
Just for the record… Lots of hats come with stickers on them. There's always been a debate about whether to leave the sticker on or take it off. We are going to give you the major consensus and opinion of the cap fashion world: take it off.
