A baseball cap finds its utility not restricted to the diamond shaped pitch but has become an everyday item even off the field. From keeping the sun off your delicate eyes to looking fashionable- the trusty baseball cap has you covered, my friend. From back in the 19th century, this handy cap has served the not only the people of America but the people across the globe well. It has gained mass popularity and can be spotted almost anywhere- the police, the military, and even other sports apart from baseball itself, like to include this trusty cap as a part of their uniform. Well, as much as they are a part of a sport, they aren’t just made to provide shade to your eyes or hide a bad hair day. Here are some ways a baseball cap can be worn to make you look like a fashionista:
- The sloppy side-ways look- Scott Schuman (blogger and fashion photographer who is credited with The Sartorialist) could probably wear a damn rock on his head and make it trendy, but thank god he didn’t. Instead, he chose to don a baseball cap but with a slight lean sideways which, if you think about it carefully, is the natural progression of the strategy of wearing a snap-back. People have already tried out the ‘right-side-up’ and backward style, so it was only natural that the sideways became a huge favorite.
- Top tilted- This a tad bit more advanced look when wearing a snap-back. I this style, you wear the cap on your head while the brim protrudes upwards. This is a very risky look as the cap could cross the critical line into the ‘cockatoo territory’ if you cannot pull it off with the correct attitude. This hip look goes well with youngsters wearing bright colors.
- Rush look- If you’re still confused over which style to wear your snapback, the straight backward look is a definite no these days. To be honest, it does look a little silly. If you’re Jay-Z, you could pull the look off but sadly you’re not.The rushed look is the perfect for you– the cap hangs high off your forehead and dips down low at the rear – this looks way cooler. Scientifically speaking, it’s has got amazing aerodynamics, making it a more viable option to swift pass a crowded road on your bike or skateboard.
- Natural yet smart look- If Jane Goodall’s subject of study had been baseball caps instead of chimps, this look would be taken as her golden opportunity to observe the cap in its ‘natural habitat’. This look works with almost anything as this is how the cap was meant to be worn originally. Benefits: provides great shade to your eyes, works fine with just a casual tee-shirt, or maybe a trendy denim jacket. Also, the flattened bill of the cap gives a hipper, yet a more modern effect than the convex bill look
These are just some of the ways you can wear this multi-purpose cap. Everyone has their own style and you should wear this cap that suits yours, in your own special way.
