Baseball caps do far more than conceal post-workout hair; they’re now a staple accessory in everyone’s effortlessly cool wardrobe.

First spotted during the Celine Spring/Summer 2021 fashion show last December in Monaco, the baseball cap is now firmly back as the accessory all of us should have to hand.

With models owning the runway in everything from summer dresses to leather blazers, each one had a ‘C’-emblazoned baseball cap to match. Their appeal is clear: bad hair days are solved and you can shield yourself from the good old British elements (or paparazzi if you happen to be a celebrity). Essentially, it’s the off-duty way of infusing some casual depth into your everyday outfits.

The cap is usually worn alongside sportswear, but nowadays, celebrities like Rihanna, Hailey Bieber and Katie Holmes have shown us that pairing the hat with something more ‘put together’ works just as well.

Read on to see some wearable options to help you take part in the trend.

Hailey Bieber is among the many celebrity faces that sport a cap regularly.
