Would You Wear… a Military Hat?

Beanies fall off with any decent gust of wind, baseball caps are more summery than winter-appropriate, and sometimes a fedora just doesn’t cut it. But a military cap will cover up any cold weather bad hair day with a trendy flair. Depending on the style and color, they can be as dramatic (or not!) as you want them to be. Some interpretations would be perfect for topping off a chic outfit, while others could be used for masking your mane on those less-than-fresh days.

Don’t consider yourself a “hat person?” Go ahead and try one on. The results may surprise you! Military-inspired hats are charming and playful. Pair it with a casual outfit for a whimsical touch or a flouncy dress and tights for a more Parisian look.

    I probably wouldn’t wear it because it isn’t my style, but I love the one on the far right from Free People!

    If I were to wear a military hat, I’d choose one with the same shape as the 1st one from ASOS. I was actually planning on going to Anime Expo while cosplaying a character that’s a general (Esdese).

    Love this “trend”! I’ve been wearing military hats for a while now, and I love them. They definitely sass up an outfit and are the perfect winter accessory! You’re definitely right, baseball hats are my go-to during the summer, but just do not cut it in the winter, especially here in Michigan with all of the recent boatloads of snow…:)
