If you follow fashion bloggers on Instagram you’ve probably noticed many wearing and styling baseball caps, and we are living for this new trend.
Know to be an American icon, baseballs caps date back to the 1910s to the 1930s, the era of Babe Ruth when baseball fans wore the cap of their favourite team. It wasn’t until the late 1980s and early 1990s that they were adopted by the fashion community, made popular by hip-hop music artists such as Ice Cube and Easy-E. They soon became a symbol of American pop culture.
But why has the throwback accessory been resurrected? Well, most trends do eventually. However, there are reasons for the baseball caps success in recent months, popularly in the New Era cap was particularly trendy 15 years ago, but the sudden increase of wearers also comes down to its versatility and compatibility.
