The item that is usually associated with tourists and little-league games has become the must-have accessory for this spring and summer. In the past, some of us have worn baseball caps for sun protection or for days we want to go “incognito” (GUILTY). Also, not only does it make a look casual-cool, but it means you don’t have to worry about styling your hair. This staple piece has achieved a new prominence thanks to normcore and the rise of sportswear.

This cool Fashionista has an assortment of baseball caps in her closet. Today, she has chosen this bright yellow hat, which serves as the focus of her outfit. Keeping it casual, she wears a basic black long sleeve, her thrifted light denim shorts and white sneakers! Her yellow signature accessory adds a color accent to her look and tops it all off.

Everyone has their own version of the baseball cap. They are usually distinguished by a canvas or cotton material with a curved brim and can add personality to your look. There is a baseball cap you can wear with just about everything, from classic sports team hats for a laid back look to leather caps for an edge. You can also find ones with colorful prints that look perfect with a monochromatic outfit. Like this Fashionista, a personal favorite of mine are ones with a patch or embroidery in the front for the addition of a funky detail.

How To: Pair a colorful baseball cap with your favorite basic top and denim shorts for an effortlessly cool combination like this Fashionista!
