Nothing says athleisure quite like the white tennis shoe — It's minimalist, its clean, and it's super chic. But if you're looking to up your athletic trend game up another step, the secret weapon is the baseball cap. Ever wonder why celebs like Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, and bad girl Riri look so effortlessly cool? It's the baseball cap, giving off the I-don't-really-care-and-it-works-for-me look.
When I think chic, I automatically think effortless. It's looking put together, without looking like you tried very hard. Oh, this outfit? I nonchalantly picked it out of my pristine closet without even thinking. That's what I imagine myself saying, but in reality, my closet is a mess of cringe-worthy pieces. I'm working on it, okay?
These days, nothing's cooler than looking like a mix of your grandpa's style and your dad's fashion sense. Looser, structured silhouettes reign supreme, and the boyfriend and mom jean have essentially beat out (but will never replace) the skinny jean. The older, more worn in an item looks, the better. High five for vintage finds!
But if you can't exactly score your father's favorite baseball cap (because maybe, he doesn't want to let go of it yet), there are definitely some super cool ones out there that'll give you that cool dad look in a pinch. Maybe, one day, you can steal his favorite glasses and denim jacket, too. If he ever lets go.
Below, find the coolest baseball caps out there that'll have you looking like the coolest kid in the class.
