If there’s one thing that can make any outfit look now, it’s the baker boy hat.
Nautical, effortless and great for a bad hair day (just saying), my baker boy hat has got me feeling all Kate Moss circa 1997.
If you’re not convinced that the baker boy cap is the next big thing, read on for the reasons that may just convince you to click **add to cart**.
The baker boy hat is an accessory by many names: baker boy cap, newsboy cap, captains hat, driver hat… But whatever you call this magnificent millinery creation, it is the one accessory that you seriously need to get your paws on this season.
The baker boy hat has been seen on the likes of Suki Waterhouse and Kendall Jenner is a go-to piece for supermodel legend Kate Moss.
As soon as my ASOS baker boy cap arrived at my door, I was totally in love with its 60s style non-challenge.
So without further waffling, here’s why you need the newsboy cap in your life…
1. A Baker Boy Cap Makes Everything Look Effortless
It has that sort of je ne sais quoi that French women seem to be born with. Adding a newsboy cap to any outfit just makes it seem that little bit cooler.

2. No More Bad Hair Days
Sweaty strands? Hair a little more than ‘just worn’. Pop on a captains hat and all those hair worries just sail away…

3. A Captains Cap Is The Perfect Trans-seasonal Accessory
Although my captain cap proved itself to be perfect for warmer climates, this absolutely gorgeous outfit proves that baker boy caps are suitable for when the mercury starts to drop.
A straw sun hat is just for Summer, but the captain cap is all year round baby!

Ok…. I may have lost all hope of ever looking this cool…
Note to self: the newsboy cap looks amazing with messy pigtails.
5. The Newsboy Cap Is Just The Right Amount of Quirky

It’s quirky enough to make a statement, but isn’t all “look at me with my soy latte, hipster beard and Nan’s vintage jacket” quirky.
In other words, it’s a totally unpretentious way to be a little bit different.
Dear life, may I also have these eyelet boots? **Insert endless heart eye emojis**
6. They Are Just So Darn Nautical

Anything that screams ‘sea’ always gets a huge tick from me! Nautical is a trend that is always on style and the baker boy can get you there in one fall swoop.
7. They Are ‘Borrowed From The Boyfriend’

There’s something always so wonderful about mashing menswear pieces into an outfit. The captains cap looks like it has been stolen straight off David Beckham’s head.
8. They Look Great With Boho Outfits

Monochrome minimalism not your thing? A baker boy hat doesn’t have to always be tough!
As Youtube beauty Cartia Mallan expertly shows, the captains cap looks adorable with bohemian looks too.

Captains caps have been around since the 1960s! Chances our that our Mum and Grandmother may have rocked them themselves!
The retro nature of them means that they are still wearable even when they are not ‘in vogue’. Just as pearl necklaces and brogues are always quirky and cute.
