Essential Summer Accessory: The Baseball Cap

Baseball hats aren’t just for playing on the field, they’re a must-have for your Spring/Summer wardrobe and possibly one of the cutest and sportiest current trends. The fashionable staple item will bring your sports luxe look to life, keep you looking chic on those troublesome hair days and are the essential statement accessory to keep you dancing the weekend away this Festival season. I love this classic trend because it brings a masculine twist to any girlie outfit.

I’ve owned baseball caps since I was tiny weenie, but I’ve never been brave enough to wear them away from the sports field, but now that they are bang-on trend and it’s cool to accesorise them with ANY outfit, I couldn’t be happier! =

When I did Camp America in 2012 (best summer ever!) I lived in my Atlanta baseball cap and just looking through Fanatics hat collections, it brought back all of my amazing memories of teaching the kids the English version of baseball we play at home- Rounders. After browsing through all of the trendy designs, I found my fave from the Red Sox hats collection!black hat

The New Era Boston Red Sox snapback stood out to me the most because of its tradtional black and white colour scheme which makes it a fab accessory to pair with absolutely anything in your wardrobe! It will be the perfect match to my grey and red Boston sweater- my essential every-night sofa jumper for the past 2 years!

The Baseball cap is bang-on trend this season and has been mastered by some gorgeous faces in the public eye. Baseball caps aren’t only a male accessory anymore, they’re totally a hot item for women too and I’m totally crushin on Cara Delevingne and Rihanna’s statement looks- they rock the trend so effortlessly!

So whoever said a baseball hat isn’t a women’s wardrobe staple… here are my favourite four looks to prove them wrong.

The Sports Luxe trend is all about combining monochrome stripes with leather fabric to create the perfect statement look. Inspired by Vanessa Hudgens’ stylish take on the trend, I have put together my own look with the essential addition of this Boston Red Sox Baseball hat. Great for a cool statement weekend look or even to fashion-up a baseball game on the field.

Whatever look you’re going for, you can always count on a trendy baseball cap to top off any outfit! My favorite way to style my baseball caps are to wear them with a classic simple tee, high waisted denim shorts, chunky wedges and a floral statement necklace.The denim, sandals, and necklace come together as a casual feminine look, with the baseball cap and slouched tee making the outfit look effortless.

I also love to wear mine on holiday when i’m chilling at the pool or taking a wander down the beach. Not only are these hats super stylish and your best friend on troublesome hair days, they can work as a fab sun protector too. Pair with your fave bikini and sling-on a kimono for your ‘I’m in paradise’ look.
