What’s the secret to an effortless off-duty look you ask? Simple, a baseball cap.

It’s the wardrobe must-have this season, which is great news if you ask me as it’s the perfect lazy day solution when you can’t be bothered to do your hair or make up but still want to look put together.

With the revival of Y2K fashion recently, we’ve seen a comeback of some of the trends that we would have preferred to stay in the past – low waisted jeans, we’re looking at you.

The baseball cap however is one we can get onboard with.

The beauty of the baseball cap is its versatility. From a sports bra and leggings emsemble, to a flowing dress or even a sharp tailored suit, it adds an instant cool factor to just about any look. What’s not to love?

The accessory started gaining traction when designers including Stella McCartney, Versace, Louis Vuitton and Tom Ford showcased them on the runway, not to mention the array of models walking the Chanel cruise show with the accessory.

The trend soon trickled down to off duty models and influencers alike, and we began to see baseball caps with everything from pared-back tracksuits to floral dresses.

Chances are you probably already have one in the back of your wardrobe, but you might be unsure of how to wear it. I know I am, so I did some digging and found some prime examples of how to style a baseball cap and the pieces you need to re-create the cap-centric looks.
