While headlines detailing A-Rod’s suspension from baseball may be overshadowing the sport’s current season, a measly fashion trend may just swallow what spotlight is left. Nothing’s a more classic ode to America than the baseball cap, and while often reserved for sporting events (not to mention one of the easiest ways to spot a tourist), it has become a fashion staple, with designers eager to add their own take. J.Crew (seen on me), Rag and Bone, and Hervé Léger by Max Azria all offer somewhat dressed-up versions of the cap with wool and and leather-fitting for the cooler months ahead. This new crop of caps is incredibly versatile, and a mainstay among many of the fashion world’s most notable trendsetters, including (unsurprisingly) Cara Delevingne, who trades between her signature beanie and backwards cap, often with cheeky text. Teen Vogue‘s Mary Kate Steinmiller, who has been sporting the trend for eons, adds edge to her ladylike wardrobe, mixing hers with both leather midi skirts and cable knit sweaters. Whether paired with a slinky gown a la Hervé Léger F/W 2013, or the greasiest hotdog at Wrigley Field, there’s no wrong way to interpret this trend.
