The baseball cap now known as “dad” hat is a recent trend, but like most fashion it’s been around for years. It’s like the male version of the “mom’s jeans”. How so? Well they’ve both been revamped from the 80’s and a total must-have now. So, step aside, “moms”, because it’s time for “dad” style to share the spotlight.
What is a dad hat? Simply put a baseball cap. It’s not a snapback, flat brim, or fitted. A dad hat is a baseball cap that’s canvas or cotton and has a slightly curved brim (not too curved) and is probably a little oversized on the wearer. Unless, of course, you’re actually a dad then it probably fits you perfectly.
In place of beanies, snapbacks, and even fedora, the “dad” hat is taking center stage among celebrities and fashion folks. This new trend has a lot of perks, not only will you never have to worry about a bad hair day again; it can serve as a sun protector. It goes with everything, I mean if Obama can pull it off in a suit then say no more…..
And the best part about that? you probably already own one (or, well ,your dad does).. so grab a pair of your favorite worn-in mom jeans (it’s a true family affair), a crew-neck sweatshirt and sneakers. And voila your “dad” hat game will be LIT!
