Whether it’s for function or fashion, many of us can’t leave the house without sporting our beloved cap, but how should we wear it? Here are three of the most popular ways:
1. Peak at noon
The classic and most common way to wear a cap is to have the peak directly in front of you, shielding your eyes from the sun and allowing the full design and logo of the cap to be clearly seen by anyone looking at you.
The look best complements summer clothing, such as T-shirts, shorts and skirts, or canvas shoes like Vans or Converse.
Wearing a cap backwards is a look often associated with the ‘90s, but modern day fashion icons like Taylor Lautner and Cristiano Ronaldo are showing it can still be effortlessly pulled off.
Wearing a cap back-to-front has practical purposes too, such as preventing a sunburnt neck. Many skateboarders favour this style too, as it offers greater aerodynamics and prevents the peak from obscuring their vision.
3. Curving and sloping
A perfectly flat peak can look a little utilitarian, while curving it adds a subtle touch of style. Flexfit caps come with a specially designed Permacurve peak to allow you to curve and adjust the peak as you see fit without ruining the shape of the cap.
Likewise, some wearers prefer to slope their caps. Take a look at rapper Jay-Z, who usually has his Yankees cap a little higher on the left of his head than the right.
However you like to wear yours, Flexfit caps are designed to offer the ultimate in style and customization.
