Do you wear customized baseball hats? If not, it’s time to make a change! Baseball hats have a wide range of uses: as a functional hat to keep the sun out of your face and eyes, as a way to cheer on your favorite team, as a fashion statement, and much more. If you’re only wearing them for one of these reasons or not at all, you’re missing out on the benefits and simple joy of sporting a baseball cap!

We’re going to give you some background on baseball hats, some outfit ideas, and how you can style them for not just you, but the whole family. Read on to learn more and see why we love baseball hats for almost any occasion!

A quick history of baseball hats

Baseball hats were introduced in the mid-1800s for the purposes of…baseball of course! They were used to help tell the two teams apart on the field but gained popularity decades later in New York for other uses. Baseball hats are defined by the soft cap and more structured, hard visor or bill, and an adjustable back (although not all modern baseball hats are adjustable.) 

While baseball hats have maintained their popularity as a fashion and sports accessory since the 1980s, many people don’t know how to wear them or don’t think they fit into their wardrobe. However, even the most elevated celebrities are sporting baseball hats these days, so why not you? If you could use a little help figuring out how to fit baseball hats into your style, read on to learn more!

Different kinds of baseball hats and how to wear them

Baseball hats for being active

Baseball hats are the perfect accessory for outdoor activities. Whether jogging, hiking, playing tennis, hitting golf balls, or simply going for a walk, baseball hats are key in keeping the UV light off of your face. Additionally, many modern baseball hats for men are made with sweat-wicking material so they can actually keep you cool when the weather is warm. 

What’s more, baseball hats can also hide dirty hair, so if you’re feeling a little messy from a workout or outdoor activity, a baseball hat can help you look more polished and hide sweaty or dirty hair.

How to style:

When choosing a baseball hat for workouts or outdoor activities, it’s best to choose a neutral color that can go with many different outfits and will be easy to match when you take it on vacation or wear it multiple days in a row. Also, consider a baseball hat with reflective properties on it so you’ll be spotted if you wear it while walking or biking on busy roads. 

Make a statement with your baseball hat

One of the best things about baseball hats is their ability to help you express your personality before you even talk with someone! Baseball hats can do it all, whether it be displaying your favorite sports team, alma mater, cultural phenomenon, name, or catchphrase. They’re easier to match with and wear regularly than T-shirts or sweatshirts and come in seemingly endless styles and designs. Baseball hats are the perfect way to elevate your look while also connecting with other people in your everyday life!

How to style:

What part of your personality or what interest do you wish people would know about? If you can dream it up, there’s almost certainly a baseball hat for it! Pick something fun and unusual and find a baseball hat that fits it. If it matches your personality, you’ll be more likely to incorporate it into your wardrobe! Ready to get started?

Baseball hats as a fashion choice

Despite their sports roots, baseball hats are now loved by all as a way to spice up or add style to an outfit. Celebrities wear leather and bedazzled baseball hats paired with jeans, leather pants, or even dresses. Baseball hats marry fashion with functionality and create a polished look without sacrificing streetwear style. While you may not want to wear a baseball hat to every event or on every occasion, pairing one with your favorite outfit (especially on a bad hair day) can help polish your look and add a little more interest.
