The dad hat is back like it never left. And honestly, it’s probably because it never did. They’re so much more than a quick fix for bad hair days—baseball caps for women are a full-fledged cool girl essential these days. And a versatile one at that: depending on the design, a baseball cap can be everything from an unexpected statement piece to the perfect problem-solver when you feel like going kinda incognito. Practicality-wise, they’re a must for shielding yourself from the sun’s rays, too! Add some sunnies and you’ll instantly feel like a street style star.

We’ve seen celebs like Rihanna, Dua Lipa, Hailey Bieber, and Meghan Markle donning baseball caps pretty much everywhere, and you’ll find ’em on the runways, too, including Coach and Celine. It’s an effortless accessory to top off so many outfits. The best part? Baseball caps can be worn year-round! Just switch it up materials-wise between seasons: Think cotton, polyester, and sweat-wicking material for the warmer months (and for workouts), and wool, velvet, and corduroy for cooler months.

Where did baseball caps come from?

How about some brief fashion history, shall we? Baseball caps were originally worn by…well, you guessed it: baseball players. The thing is, the style started off as a sun visor to protect the players out on the field. Marketers and politicians quickly seized the moment to send a message by adding slogans to them and today, everyone is making a statement with ‘em. Baseball caps are def never going out of style; they’re just evolving.

Here’s what you should look for in a baseball cap for women:

No baseball cap is the same, so here are some tips that’ll help you find the best fit and feel possible, depending on your hair, head size and shape, and more…

  1. Figure out the right size. First things first, yes, size matters when it comes to hats. Many baseball caps are unisex, with an adjustable back strap to fit different head sizes, though baseball caps for women do run smaller than men’s. When in doubt, it’s worth measuring the circumference of your noggin, especially since you’ll find measurements guides vary from brand to brand. The cap shouldn’t be too tight (headaches are not cool) nor should it be too loose.
  2. Discover the material you want. Cotton is the best if you’re looking for something lightweight and comfy. But if you wanna experiment and have fun, try out other materials like leather, nylon, silk, satin, or even tweed. There are so many to choose from!
  3. Determine what kind of back closure you’re into. Do you prefer a hat with velcro, buckles, or snaps to keep it securely on your head? Figure out what works best with your hair type, go-to hairstyle, and, of course, your personal style.

Should a baseball cap cover your ears?

Heads up (get it?): a baseball cap shouldn’t be so big it covers your ears. Ideally, it will it rest right above ‘em.
