How To Wear A Baseball Cap: Baseball caps are one of those accessories that are always easy and accessible, they can be styled by anyone and worn with almost any outfit to really elevate the look. They come in all different colors from muted undertones to bright and colorful ones for those who love a pop of color in their outfit. Baseball caps are the easiest way to uplift an outfit by adding another element that will, in most cases, not clash with the outfit at all.
Styling Baseball Caps
While there is only one way to style baseball caps, (by just wearing them), there are many ways to go about it cleverly to make your outfit look well thought out. This is done by color theory and see what colors go well together and complement each other the most.
This is such an easy and effortless way to add a little extra to your outfit and make it more interesting and dimensional. Especially if you are not one to accessorize with jewelry or add more layers, baseball caps are the perfect alternative for you.
Do’s And Don’ts of Styling Baseball Caps
- Do try to be creative by trying out bright and bold colors, no matter how different they are from the colors in the rest of your outfit
- Don’t be afraid to color coordinate and match your cap in a single colored monochromatic outfit, it will never go wrong and will always create a flattering look.
- Don’t wear your cap backward. While that may be okay with more relaxed looks, it gives an overall very casual look and the colors are not prominent enough to really tie the outfit together by adding it as an accessory.
- Do try to incorporate sneakers trainers, or any type of athletic shoes, to really create a sporty and athletic look. Baseball caps are perfect for such looks and will really take your outfit to the next level.

16 – Plain White Tank Top, Distressed Shorts With A Green Baseball Cap
In this outfit, as opposed to the previous one, there is more emphasis being laid on the baseball cap itself rather than a statement top or a statement bottom. This outfit shows us that with a nice, neat, and clean base outfit (something as simple and easily worn as a white tank top and light wash denim shorts), you can make your baseball cap the star of the show.

15 – Black Tube Top Paired with Lightwash Denim Shorts and A Bright Red Baseball Cap
This outfit is similar to the previous one except the base outfit is chosen to be colors that will uplift the color of the chosen baseball cap a lot. Using the same concept, you can take a simple, plain, black tube top and pair it with a normal pair of shorts, and add a bright red baseball cap as an accent color to tie the whole look together. In this case, a darker color has been used for the base outfit, keeping in mind that a color like bright red will stand out more against a darker base color like black. That is why this outfit works so perfectly together despite having somewhat mismatched colors.
