From embroidered slogans to pretty pastels, distressed denim to corduroy, up your hat game this Spring/Summer with our roundup of the most stylish caps.

Caps may be nothing new, but they have become the cool girl’s staple for elevating a look in an instant. Whether you’re wearing gym gear, a matching trackie or a more pulled-together look, a cap can add a fashion edge to any look. In fact, it’s the smarter outfits we love the accessory with most – a leather trousers/striped knit/trainer combo or a ’90s-inspired bomber and baggy jeans both work perfectly.

If you’re looking to invest, a cap is also a great way to buy into those more expensive labels you love without splashing an entire month’s wages – we’re looking at you Isabel Marant. On the high-end edge of the spectrum, we’re also loving Acne for its simple, subtle shades and Anine Bing for their varsity with a hint of polish styles.

Then there’s the collab between denim brand FRAME and iconic French hotel, the Ritz Paris, who have come together to create the destination’s iconic logo on a simple sporty cap. It’s giving us dad vibes on holiday in the ’90s but we love it. Great paired with all your lowkey looks, from jeans and a sweater to oversized shirts and wide-leg trousers.

Come summer, lean into the athleisure trend and pair your varsity cap with an oversized slogan sweat and cycling shorts – very Princes Di on the school run.

Lean into your ’90s dad era with a washed-out varsity or holiday destination cap. Brands we currently love are Sporty & Rich, Caps Apparel and Idioma.

Destination caps are everywhere this season, giving a relaxed feel to all your summer looks… even if you don’t have a holiday planned. Sigh.
