There's no denying dad hats are a staple piece in basically everyone's wardrobe nowadays. Even though they've had a clear comeback in the past couple of years, dad hats have had a pretty stable presence in fashion since the 90s. But why does something so simple and unassuming become such a popular fashion item? Well, that simple and unassuming look might just be the answer.
If you're not the trendiest of people, you might wonder what on earth we're going on about with these "dad hats". Is there such a thing as hats only dads can wear? Well, not exactly. They were made popular several decades ago by middle-aged men (or dads), but are now worn by basically everyone. So, what makes a dad hat? Traditionally, the classic dad hat is a six-panel pre-curved bill cap or just plain old "baseball caps”. They are usually made from canvas or cotton, but you can find them in corduroy, polyester, and other materials. In any case, the key to a good dad hat is for it to be versatile, comfy, and convenient. Oh, and of course, nothing tops a dad hat than one with a unique, embroidered image. For example, take a look atour world's okayest dad hat.
We mentioned before that dad hats became a thing in the 90s. Well, that's true, but they've actually been around before then. In the 70s, baseball players started wearing them, and then their fans did. At this point, these types of caps were reserved mostly for middle-aged men, hence the name. In the 90s, they expanded to younger generations when rappers made them popular. Although they lost some popularity, it's been since then that you can find at least one dad hat in most people's wardrobes. Finally, since 2016 we've seen a huge comeback for dad hats, and they have become a staple piece for younger generations' wardrobe.
The best thing about dad hats is that you can wear them almost anywhere. I mean, If you've been invited to a black-tie event, maybe leave your dad cap at home, but it's such a basic accessory that you can play with it in so many ways. Get yourself a nice, minimalist-design dad hat and pair it with a cool outfit for going out at night, add some swag to your brunch outfit with an egg hat, or go old school and wear your beer can dad hat to a ball game. It's definitely best to have a few so you can mix and match with your outfits for all occasions. Also, they protect you from the sun, so if you think about it... they're kind of an essential, both style and health-wise.
