Kim Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid and Rihanna are all trendsetters in their own right, but it seems they may be stealing style cues from an unlikely source: our dads.
Yes, the “dad hat” — aka your father’s favorite headgear, the solid-colored, cotton or canvas curved-brim baseball cap — has fast become the season’s hottest accessory and a fashion staple among celebrities.
It’s easy to understand why: The hats really make a statement, whether you’re showing your love for your home team, flaunting your favorite designer label or expressing yourself with a phrase that captures your feelings. They’re also surprisingly versatile, so you can wear them with sweats for a trip to the gym or rock them with your chicest outfits for a night on the town. Want to really knock it out of the park? Pair the cap with mom jeans and white sneakers.
Whether you’re obsessed with being on trend, want to tip your hat to the man who raised you or need a solution for your sloppy locks, we’ve got all your bases covered. Check out our favorite dad hats below.
