3 Ways to Style Baseball Hats with MakerWear

Share Button

Compensated post in collaboration with MakerWear and Target. Views and style ideas are my own – of course!

Yet another style surprise for me — I have never ever worn baseball caps or hats (ok, I may have worn a Dave Matthews Band hat the summer of 1997 but I’m pretty sure that was the last time!) My husband doesn’t own any either and I just don’t know how to wear them or where I would wear them to.

I like hats and I own several in the form of fedoras, newsboy caps, knit hats or something with a more feminine look. When I was asked to style three different hats from MakerWear — which are all caps and exclusively sold at Target, I knew I was in for a challenge. Regardless, I was excited to see how and what I could come up with. 

Here are three ways to style baseball hats — they are different enough looks to inspire you to give them a try.

Ways to Style Baseball Hats No. 1

This was the first hat I styled. I chose the five fold cap because I liked the feminine touch with the colorful birds and bravely said “Yes, I’ll put a bird on it!” Baseball hats were made for men, so in wearing them you have to accentuate your womanly features in order to create a contrast. I felt I was dressed up for hunting, so I added the scarf and focused on my hair and makeup. You don’t want to get lost when wearing a hat.

HAIR: Wavy or curly hair when wearing a cap adds glamor to the look.

FACE: Red lips are a must — your face is hidden under the bill, so bright lips allow your face to still be noticed.

OUTFIT: Blue button down shirt, black skinny jeans from Old Navy, Gap jean jacket and knitted vest and a striped scarf. PLEASE, skip the sneakers and add boots or suede booties to dress up the look.


Ways to Style Baseball Hats No. 2

This look happened by chance. I wasn’t sure what to do with the “Party” hat and then boom! It just came together. I chose this one because it’s such an oxymoron — my party days are over but everyday is a wild day with two kids. Instead of red plastic cups on the floor, beer stains on the carpet, a random person passed out on the sofa and the IT song of the moment playing in the background, I have half empty sippy cups all over the house, milk stains on the carpets, a baby passed out on the playroom floor and Kidz Bop on replay. I could argue the PARTY isn’t over just yet.

HAIR: Loose waves or messy chic look. Best to keep hair down to add cuteness and femininity to your look.

FACE: Again, red or bright lips are a must — your face is hidden under the bill, so color allows your face to still be noticed. 

OUTFIT: Blue polka dot button down blouse, Sierra Stella & Dot Necklace, sleeveless Gap cardigan, skinny burgundy jeans, over the knee boots and green Merona handbag from Target.


Ways to Style Baseball Hats No. 3

When I saw this hat I laughed to myself — “noise?” I thought. Yep. No silence here. Or least not until my kids they are off to college. In my life there is constant noise — crying, whining, laughing, yelling, the Fresh Beat Band for the millionth time — you get it. I’m sure the artist didn’t have this in mind when he designed it, but art is left up to interpretation, right?! Sundays are laundry, family, lazy and get ready for the week days so I opted for a more relaxed look. Besides, hair wasn’t washed so that worked out great!

HAIR:  Down and loose. I don’t personally like ponytails with hats.

FACE: It’s Sunday so whatever you want! I had just come home from a birthday party so I still had makeup on.

OUTFIT: Fleece leggings (so warm!), argyle socks, Superga sneakers and long houndstooth cardigan from Forever 21.

    I want some hats so bad! But i just don’t know if I’ll look too boyish in them! these are great though!

    you look good!


    • http://www.verybusymamablog.com/ María José Ovalle

      Hi Ruth, that has always been my fear too, that’s why I didn’t have any, I didn’t know how to propery style them. Play around with different looks, always add jewelry, nice makeup and form fitting clothes (such as jeggings or skinny jeans) to keep the femininity. First create the outfit and then add the hat. Let me know how it goes!

Good Housekeeping magazine?! What the whaaaaaat? I’ve never been a fan — cooking, baking and recipes just don’t do it for me. Only when the dentist or doctor is running behind do I pick up a copy —  if all other magazines are taken. A few months ago I actually for real, picked one up, opened it and READ it after my mother saved me a copy because she wanted to show me a style feature which had a picture of her newest London {Read More}
