Would You Wear: A High Fashion-y Baseball Cap?


I love a good hat in the fall and early winter. My favorites tend to be felt and a little floppy, or else knit and a little slouchy, but I’ve been noticing a new trend on the streets and on the blogs that has me considering an old school kind of head topper for the season… the baseball cap?

Hear me out! It’s… well, it’s unexpected. And a little bit tongue-in-cheek. Maybe kind of out there. These aren’t team logo baseball caps, and while they’re meant to be sporty, they definitely aren’t really down with being paired with sweats and a tee shirt. They’re… high fashion baseball caps. I know, it doesn’t make any sense. That’s sort of why I like it, I think.

After the jump, I’ll let the images (and a few high fashion shops selling their own baseball caps) speak for themselves. Enjoy and then let me know, would you wear a high fashion-y baseball cap?
