39 Sporty Hats for Women Style

I don’t know if you guys have noticed, but sport hats are enjoying a moment of popularity. Yes, I’m talking about the classic cap that you’ve probably seen your dad, grandpa, brother, and friends wear your whole life. Hats have been around forever, obviously, but they’ve traditionally been something you wear if you’re a “sporty” person, if you’re doing something vaguely athletic, or if you’re a dude. This year, they’re being worn as a stylish accessory that makes even dresses and heels look more casual. You definitely don’t need to be a guy to wear a sporty hat – and with the options available right now, you don’t even need to be into sports.

Sporty hats make the perfect summer accessory. Aside from the fact that they look cute, they shield your face from the sun, they’re great for hiding messy hair in humid weather, and they’re ideal for outdoor hikes or walks. Pair them with a casual dress or a crop top, and you’ve got that cool-girl-Tumblr-aesthetic you’ve (maybe) always wanted. You can opt for a traditional cap with your favorite sports team’s logo, something plain and in a different fabric (like leather), or one with a fun saying or graphic (like a little alien). Where to begin? Here are 39 style tips on how to wear sporty hats this summer:
