Baseball hats are no longer just for athletics. As with many pieces in fashion, baseball hats have been reworked and upgraded by designers and brands to become a statement accessory to jazz up your outfit. We rounded up some of the best modern baseball hats that add some athletic-inspired style to your wardrobe.

1. Fila Cotton Twill Baseball Hat

Fila’s vintage aesthetic has helped bring back baseball caps as a style statement instead of an athletic staple. This simple cotton hat makes a great go-to for beach days or running errands because it’s only $25, so there’s no need to worry about beating it up a little.

2. Polo Ralph Lauren Classic Pony Cap

Another great vintage-inspired lid is this one from Polo Ralph Lauren. It’s made of chambray, which is more stylish than your typical baseball hat, and it features the subtle, iconic Polo logo on the front.

3. MELIN The Diplomat Baseball Cap

This low-key Melin baseball hat can be worn to the pool like typical baseball hats, but can also be worn out to dinner or around town. It features a unique wool and polyester construction that makes it stand out from regular caps, but still works with everything in your closet.

4. KENZO Neoprene Cap

If you want a baseball hat with some character, go for this KENZO lid that features the brand’s tiger peeking over the bill. It’s a great way to spruce up a boring everyday outfit, and the neutral navy color lets you wear it with everything.

5. Rag & Bone Lenox Ball Cap

Baseball hats like this one from Rag & Bone can do the impossible: look great with an office outfit. The super minimal design and premium suede leather makes it a powerful office style swerve that will impress everyone from the intern to your boss.

6. Gucci Vintage Logo Leather Ball Cap

One way to nail the upgraded baseball hat trend is with a designer cap like this one from Gucci. Sure, it takes a few extra bucks, but it’ll upgrade just about any outfit from board shorts to jeans and a button-up.
