    Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

    The ever-so-stylish supermodel stepped out in Los Angeles in a gray Equipment Sloane Cashmere Sweater ($270), Citizens of Humanity Dylan Loose Fit Jeans ($228), and Chloé clutch. She (quite literally) topped her outfit off with a gold-banded Maison Michel cap in a cream hue, giving a laidback, tomboy feel to the ensemble.

    If you’re new to the military cap, try an all-neutral outfit, like this street styler. She matched her black cap to her dress, and polished the look off with a cream coat and beige bag. Add definition to the ensemble with a metal belt cinched around the waist!

    Astrid Berges Frisbey

    The French actress attended the Isabel Marant x H&M launch party in Paris donning the collection head-to-toe, including the wool fisherman’s cap. The oversized cardigan combined with her messy, side ponytail resulted in a chic, effortless look.

    We love the Barcelona blogger’s interpretation of the military cap. She tucked her locks into a vintage hat and added a feminine touch with a vintage, printed shirtdress. The key to her outfit success lays in the details, like her rolled sleeves, belted waist, and berry lipstick.

    For a youthful iteration of this hat, pair it with your favorite mini skirt and brightly-colored sweater, like Zingmark. She chose an initialed sweater with plaid contrast sleeves, and wore sheer, black tights, resulting in a look that’s delightfully reminiscent of a schoolgirl.

    Kate Moss

    When trying out a trend, looking to Moss for styling inspiration is a no-brainer, which is why her recent ensemble while out in London works perfectly for today’s story. She paired her cap with an athletic jacket, black t-shirt, and distressed Mango jeans (similar style here).

    Winter is an excellent season to pull out your favorite hat, so why not make it the military cap? Gravemaker wore her H&M cap with a cozy Stylish Plus’ Turn-Down Collar Plaid Coat ($54) for an ensemble suitable for all cold-weather occasions!

    Suki Waterhouse

    Waterhouse’s bohemian take on the military cap shows how versatile this hat can really be. She wore hers with a printed blouse and kept her hair down for a look with undone appeal.

    A striped shirt’s je ne sais quoi factor is something to be admired, proving true yet again in this outfit, courtesy of Suarez. The blogger paired her striped TOPMAN t-shirt with a ladylike Bardot Frayed Boucle Jacket ($82) and James Jeans High Class Skinny Jeans ($150). She balanced the preppy look with her H&M cap and metal, stacked rings.

    Why not embrace the origins of this stylish cap and don a military-inspired outfit, like Torres? Her gold button H&M Paris Collection blazer accentuated the soldierly feel of her H&M cap. For the rest of her look, she chose a Zara Basic Denim Shirt ($50), Guess Kate Skinny Jeans ($45), and a petite, structured Rebecca Minkoff Hudson Moto Bag ($365).

    Amp up your cap with a cat eye and attention-grabbing jewelry, like Ferragni. She wore her vintage hat while at Milan Fashion Week, and chose evil eye earrings to create a uniquely-accessorized look.
