Posted on July 12 2019

Look around and you will see that wearing baseball caps has reached an all-time high where popularity is concerned. Women wear them, men wear them. They are donned by young, old, and everything in between. More and more individuals, regardless of their walk of life, are wearing baseball caps. But are they wearing them right?

Yes, it's true, there is a right way and a wrong way to wear a baseball cap. Let's explore that concept. But before we do, we’re going to have to look at the types of baseball caps in existence – because the type of cap you’re wearing matters in how you wear it.

The Dos and Don'ts of Wearing Baseball Caps

The Dad Hat

Looking for a fuss-free baseball cap? Dad hats are exactly that. They concentrate more on function and less on form. If you can see your dad wearing a cap, this is probably the cap you imagine him in. On the other hand, moms like them, too! A slightly oversized fit is okay here, with a curved bill, and a low profile.

The Fitted Cap

These caps are a solid choice, whether you are a player on the field or the referee calling the game. Unfortunately, they cannot be adjusted, so the ultimate no-no as far as how to wear one would be wearing one that doesn't fit properly.

The Snapback

This cap or hat is a classic and can be found at most any baseball game. There is an adjustable strip (plastic strap) with snaps around the back rather than a fitted elastic or cloth strap. Leather, nylon, and cotton are just some of the materials that these caps come in.

How to wear it: Guys, try a brilliant, team logo classic possibly made from cotton polyester. Ladies, for a fun-day look, consider wearing one with a maxi dress or T-shirt dress.

The Premium Cap

The name says it all – when it comes to quality fabrics and details, this is the stylish baseball cap worn by many. As a matter of fact, there are numerous high-end fashionistas and designers that promote and manufacture these caps.

How to wear it: Guys, keep it simple. Taking center stage should be this stylish accessory so tone down the rest of your wardrobe that day. Ladies, pair ballet flats, a chic skirt, and a silk blouse with this premium cap.

The Trucker Cap

These mesh snapback caps date back to the 1970s and were worn by rural workers and truckers. Ashton Kutcher and other actors and celebrities catapulted these caps to fame by bringing them into the pop culture around the millennium.

How to wear them: Considered by many to be fashion destroyers, this is a personal taste kind of venture.
