The backwards cap, once considered a trademark symbol of 90’s fashion — think Mark Wahlberg in his Marky Mark days — is back in an edgier avatar.
While it was once considered cool for guys — and girls in the tradition of TLC — to wear baseball caps with only baggy jeans and flannel shirts, celebs are now wearing them with pretty much anything — from camouflage shirts to fitted jackets. The most recent star to follow this trend was singer Ciara, who wore a backwards trucker hat with a monochrome asymmetrical dress at a red-carpet event in Paris. Here are the other caps that celebs have worn backwards:
The baseball cap
Celebs who are stepping out to run errands usually wear caps to cover up messy hair. Take, for instance, Kristen Stewart, who is known for her casual style and epitomized this trend with a jeans-and-tee combo, which she finished off with a backwards cap.
The graphic-printed cap
It’s usually a no-no to wear a cap with a jacket, but Rita Ora did just that when she arrived at Heathrow a couple of months ago wearing a tailored blazer, leather trousers and a graphic-printed backwards cap. Way to buck tradition!
The accessorized hat
Rihanna is always one to take OTT to extremes when it comes to her fashion choices. Earlier this year, she wore a backwards cap with a netted veil to a fashion show in Paris. She’s even worn a gold quilted leather cap during a visit to the dentist.
