Un SI rotundo a las gorras, porque son nuestro 'new black'

A resounding YES to caps, because they are our 'new black'

From being a purely sports accessory to being an essential Street Style that is being talked about so much today. There is no doubt that caps have taken over the streets of the world and especially the closets of the most stylish women. But, what is it about caps that every celebrity and influencer now carries with them everywhere?

The first thing we must highlight is that the caps arrived in times where fashion is going through a transition where certain standards are being redefined. Breaking stereotypes and creating new identities. Although it would be wrong to say that fashion now does not have a single style, in fact, that same absence of “a single style” is a style itself. Were caps at some point accessories that functioned as elements to express or manifest something in society? Were the first women who wore caps successors to the first women who dared to wear pants?

Caps were initially a male accessory or complement used in wars, as a complement to military uniforms, just as they were used by the Egyptians in ancient times. Did you know?

But it was not until the 60s that it came to be used as a sports garment, specifically in baseball, hence the "Baseball Cap", which at that time was made of leather and well, later more creations were added, making them each time an accessory linked to people's personality and tastes.

The trucker or baseball style cap began to be worn mostly by men, and somewhat less by women who used it on a more informal and sporty level. The truth is that this is history, since the middle of the 20th century, caps began to be used as an accessory for protection from the sun, rain, and even snow. Fashion experts began to define this accessory as a good accessory for those who wanted to frame their face and cover their hair.

But when did a sports cap and a formal garment like a classic blazer cross the line to create something we call athleisure? Well maybe this image will refresh your memory a little:

By then, the late Princess Diana could not imagine the impact that her uncomplicated and very original outfits would have a few years later. What would she mean with the cap? We dare to think that perhaps it was something like: “I am breaking the line of the basics, without leaving aside my personality and freedom of expression.”

Furthermore, we are living in a time when the eyes of fashion have turned their attention to a unique, simple style, without gender identity, where oversized garments, baggy pants, or jumpsuits that seek chromatic harmony are what demands and is marking a revolution in what is understood as aesthetic and classic.

There are certain 'rules' to follow to make the cap your accessory it. In our article today we will show you possible outfits that you can apply and that you surely have in your closet, it is just a matter of knowing how to combine them to create a perfect visual harmony that is sure to please. You will attract attention wherever you go.


Gorras y Blazer

We already encouraged a little with the style of wearing the cap as Diana of Wales did at her time: the royalty of the casual and uncomplicated. Her looks began to go even more viral thanks to The Crown series where they revive in a very original way each of the outfits that made this precursor of street style eternal.

How to imitate him? The key is to always imagine an inverted triangle. That is, from the widest to the narrowest: loose garments at the top and tight at the bottom. That gives some symmetry to your figure.If you're going to cover your hair or style with a cap like our 'Fox Red' cap , look for a coat, a hoddie, a blazer, a jacket that's two sizes too big. the one you usually use, even those for men, which by the way, are becoming very fashionable, showing a bit of avant-garde and style.And at the bottom you can opt for leggings, or jeans with a straight boot.

Not only did the late Princess of Wales impose this style, but she also has a few followers who have followed her style, for example, Hailey Baldwin, is one of the celebrities who has best adopted mixing the casual with the elegant, even daring to mix a leather jacket with his cap and oversized jeans. A spectacular look!

Now, the combination that radiates comfort wherever you look at it: Cap, with a sophisticated tracksuit, sneakers and a cardigan. The 'Turtle Royal Blue' cap can play an important role if you want to be comfortable, but without needing to look too sporty. That is, if you opt for an off-white tracksuit and a black or gray coat you can have a very calm look that matches the occasion.

The key is also not to stigmatize a garment to a specific area, just as back then it was said that tracksuits were only for going to the gym or being at home, now you can go out with them because in a certain way it is taking precedence the comfort. But if you want to go to the office comfortably, you can accompany the tracksuit with a cardigan that protects you a little from the bad weather.


Gorras y Athleisure

As we mentioned in our previous article, it was the fashion prescriber Alexandra Pereira who has been in charge of showing us that 'athleisure' is for everyone and that it can be worn very good at it. Here we show you several looks, which we simply love because of how wonderful they are.

The option of an emerald green hoddie and black bikers that combines very well with his cap and fanny pack. Also, if you decide to complement it with sunglasses, it is a perfect choice for a Sunday brunch or taking a walk with your pet in the park.

And combining some black leggings and a gray hoddie, with a cardigan, is top in comfort and style.Which if not accompanied by a windproof cardigan would pass for an informal look, and the best is yet to come, its purse and cap of the same color make the outfit simply spectacular.

We could say that she is one of our favorite bets, an overzised blazer and synthetic pants, plus, the cap. You can choose to use the same color in both the upper and lower garments, or combine the color of your shorts, your shirt and the cap, giving more prominence to the blazer, but where the cap creates an undeniable identity.

Another risky option is the option of moccasins, and your cap, in this case we recommend this combination where the 'Kangaroo Brown' cap is a very successful option.For example, always try to give it some elegance with a more elegant garment, such as your purse, or in this case the loafers that are becoming a must of the moment. The ideal is to give chromatic harmony, we can see that she is wearing cargo pants and with the cap she gives you the impression that you are relaxed.

We believe that these are the basics that you should follow if you were stuck thinking about how to combine your trucker cap with your outfits without losing any style. Remember that personality is your most notable garment. Without a doubt, the cap establishes an identity of strength, security, determination, and youth always, so make that spirit radiate throughout your outfit.
