As an accessory, what makes hats so functional yet fun – particularly in reference to the "dad hat"? With the right hat you can…
- Camouflage a bad hair day (or no hair!)
- Accessorize, with a pop of color, an otherwise dark or drab outfit
- Support your preferred team and/or sport
- Advertise your favorite cartoon character or movie
- Start a conversation
- Show the world that you mean business
- Kick up your fashion cred
- … and so much more.
If you're a hat lover, you already know that a dad hat – basically a distressed baseball cap – will make an awesome addition to your collection.
So popular are today's dad hats that they were listed on the top six accessories for fall of 2020 – and that shows no sign of changing for this year!
With all of the above-stated in mind, let's look at some ways to style your dad hat.
What are we talking here? Simple shapes, nude colors, and clean lines. With a dad hat, you've come to the right place if you dress in a "less is more" manner. Your go-to statement and accessory can be a dad hat that is patterned or one in simple white. For a striking look, pair it with an off-white jacket, white sneakers, and white pants.
You may also choose to pair your dad hat, for a little extra warmth, with a plain turtleneck and nude wool coat.
Never assume that dad hats are boring. To an outfit you already consider experimental, quirkiness can be an added element with the right hat. While still keeping your look cohesive, pair the un-pairable.
With plain dad hats, dilute clashing patterns. With a variety of different lengths and textures, pair a bright dad hat. You simply can't go unnoticed with that level of originality!
Who’s ready for chic but sporty? For the colder months, a white denim jacket with a sleeveless tee will be the perfect accompaniment for a dad hat in a bold color. For a super stylish and daring look, add an extra pop of color. Try to color coordinate your bottoms with your hat.
Versatility is one of the highlights of cool dad hats. You can spice up an outfit with a sophisticated, polished look by adding a dad hat. You will instantly add, to your look, a hip and playful character.
Let's take it a step further and pair your hat with a white button up shirt and leather pants or, specifically for ladies, heels and a slip dress. Wherever you go, you're going to turn heads! Add your favorite neck scarf or necklace and some statement earrings and you're good to go.
Don't think that because it's a baseball cap, it's automatically casual. There is a particularly casual way to don your dad hat. To create a stunning but casual look, pair your cap with khakis or dress pants, a crewneck, and sneakers. Wear a plain shirt underneath and add a cream-colored blazer for a touch of formal. You're ready for running errands or grabbing a coffee.
