If you live in an urban environment, chances are you’ll have seen this get-up on lots of men. The great thing about this graphic fashion movement is how easy it is to express your creative and cultural tastes through your clothes. The five panel cap is less rigid than other baseball type hats so is also well suited to sports like cycling. Its soft design means it will fit most head shapes so you can feel relaxed in a baseball cap that won’t be sitting awkwardly on your head. Pair your baseball cap with a loose graphic-print sweater and black skate shorts like this pair from Dickies. This fashion movement has roots in skateboarding, so you’ll want to wear clothes that you can move easily in. Luckily that means this baseball cap ensemble is a comfy outfit you can wear every day.

We all have those days where we’d like to hide from the world, and no one knows this better than Hollywood A-listers. This is one of the easiest (like way too easy) choices if you want to know how to wear a baseball cap, and the beauty is you can even hide having an off day under your fashionable baseball cap and sunglasses and no one will know… The secret here is to wear a cap in a dark colour and add some sunglasses. Go for a large style to stop them looking too small underneath your hat. A baseball cap with an everyday logo, like this one from CAT will work well with your casual outfit and give your dynamic monochrome ensemble some detail without getting in the way of your under-the-radar style. Wear it with a black jacket such as a denim trucker or plain harrington for proper Hollywood fashion.
