Is it just us, or is the humble baseball cap taking over Instagram? While the cottagecore aesthetic dominated 2020, the fashion world is certainly shifting gears in 2021. As the world opens up again, leaving the simplicity and comfort of our lockdown uniforms is daunting. Perhaps that explains the rise in popularity of the streetwear or elevated loungewear aesthetic. What’s the one accessory – apart from sneakers – that complements the streetwear aesthetic? The baseball cap, of course.

Sure, fashion is cyclical and trends tend to bounce back every few years. But, in the era of loungewear, it’s hard to ignore the direct relationship between the rise in popularity of the casual, off-duty aesthetic and the comeback of the baseball cap trend. The baseball hat is characterized by its neutrality, making it compatible – when styled right – with just about any outfit. No, dresses and blazers aren’t off-limits either.

Leave it to the “It” girls to educate us on styling even the most basic accessory. Some of the most (fashionably) famous heads have been bobbing around Instagram wearing baseball caps. Bella Hadid, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and Karen Wazen, among others, are huge fans of the baseball cap trend and have been spotted sporting one on multiple occasions. Not just any baseball cap though — the cool-girl gang is rocking baseball hats engraved with the most covetable fashion logos. From Chanel’s intertwined ‘Cs’, Prada’s iconic triangle logo, and Nike’s signature swoosh to Calvin Klein’s embroidered ‘CK’ logo, the baseball cap trend is hardly limited to traditional streetwear brands. Plus, who could forget the infamous Balenciaga version that kicked off the entire trend? You know, the one made to look like a certain ‘MAGA’ cap?

The best part about the baseball cap trend? You can protect yourself from the burning UAE heat without compromising on style. Win-win. Can’t wait to cop the look? Discover and shop the trend below.
