Baseball caps aka “dad hats”- Instead of wearing beanies or snapbacks, celebrities and bloggers have brought attention to an older fashion obsession: the “dad” hat. The great thing about this trend is that you won’t have to worry about a bad hair day again, just grab your “dad” hat, and if you don’t have one, feel free to borrow your dad’s.
