Even with all the hoopla surrounding athleisure and glamleisure, there are a few key sporty elements that haven’t taken off. Like baseball caps. But that’s slowly changing. Everyone from Rihanna to Katie Holmes and even Kim Kardashian have been spotted out rocking caps.

Truth is, baseball caps have been popping up on runways for a few seasons now. When Elie Saab presented its Spring 2017 collection, graphic caps served as toppers for many of the designer’s trademark super luxe gowns. Chanel opted to place a sideways baseball cap on a large portion of models that same season, from versions fashioned from the label’s classic tweed to more vibrant 90s-era neons (think The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air).

Flash forward to Pre-Fall 2018 when Gucci teamed up with Major League Baseball. The hats basically involved adding the Gucci logo to Yankees caps and other teams. There was also some glitz and flowery prints thrown in for good measure.

Now with so many celebs hopping on the baseball cap bandwagon, you can bet they’ll be popping up everywhere. We managed to find 14 baseball hats that cover all the bases — from supporting your team to making a fashion statement — without demolishing your budget.
