A dad hat is basically a baseball-style hat that does not have a snapback or flat visor, but how much do you know about this stylish piece of headwear?
Who wears Yupoong dad hats?
Perhaps the most famous wearer of the Dad Hat is former president Barack Obama, who was featured wearing one whilst he signed autographs. North West, the five-year-old daughter of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, was seen wearing her dad hat with a $3,500 fur coat.
Dad hats are not new though, with politician Hillary Clinton seen wearing one way back in 1998. Musician Beyoncé also once wore an exclusive Lemonade dad hat.
The great thing about a dad hat is that, despite the connotations of the name, all sorts of people wear them – females, males, young and old and from all walks of life.
How to wear the Yupoong dad hat
There is a trend to wear dad hats that are a little too big for the wearer’s head, but for vigorous exercise, it’s advisable to wear a close-fitting one.
The genius of the dad Hat is that it does not need to be matched with any other clothing, but in the opinion of many, the classic look is to pair it with a crewneck sweatshirt.
A dad hat is normally regarded as leisurewear, but such customs are there to be broken and there is no reason why you can’t wear it with a more formal outfit.
A brief history of the dad hat
Dad hats were born on the sports field and were favoured by baseball players. Then, baseball fans started to wear then printed with the team logo that they supported. Workers then wore them as a practical cap to work in. They came to be known as dad hats because middle-aged men wore them rather than young people.
A few years ago, dad hats started to become trendy among young people and celebrities were seen wearing them in trending social media photos.
