I Never Thought This Accessory Trend Looked Classy—French Women Just Changed My Mind

Summer is officially only a couple of months away, and I'd be lying if I told you I hadn't already mood-boarded my entire aesthetic. Tapping into sporty references, natural fabrics and a few new-season trends, I'm ready to make this one of my most stylish summers so far.

During my pursuit of chic summer style inspo, I've come across a few hero items that I know will be making very frequent outings. Up there with raffia bags and white cotton dresses, for me, this year is all about the baseball cap.

Adding a sporty and casual element into any day-to-day outfit, baseball caps are the underrated accessory trend that will be seeing me through the warmer months. Styling well with graphic tees and straight-leg jeans, but looking equally chic when paired with a billowy cotton dress (and, of course, leggings and trainers) baseball caps are set to be some of the most in-demand accessories of the season.

Whilst baseball caps are nothing new, this season's styles offer sleek and minimal designs that pair so well with a polished capsule wardrobe; adding equal helpings of sporty and chic to a look. A mainstay in the wardrobe of so many of our favourite celebrities, rarely a week goes by when I don't spot Jennifer Lawrence, Taylor Russell or Gigi Hadid styling the growing trend.

If that wasn't enough, I've also seen a whole host of French women adopting the piece this season, further cementing its chic credentials. Plus, it's an effective way to further protect your skin from the sun, which we all know is more important than style will ever be. Still, it's a bonus when you can tick off both in one fell swoop.
