Every season, one hat is deemed the must-have style. For spring, it was the visor. This summer, it seems the bucket hat is making a comeback (thanks, Rihanna). However, we can’t seem to shake our unbridled love for the classic baseball cap, and thanks to a handful of recent on-point street style looks, it appears we don’t have to. Scroll through for a curated selection of shopping and styling inspiration, and let us know what chapeau you’re wearing this summer in the comments below.
We love a good tomboy outfit, and what better way to quickly incorporate a masculine-inspired element than with a baseball cap? We suggest you pair yours with basic separates, like a button-down shirt, denim cutoffs, and sandals.
