Fashion Trend: The Paperboy Cap

FC6A8373Wow! 2018 is abuzz with so many great trends. We’ve had the beret, tuxedo dresses, paperbag waist pants, checkered plaid and an epic return of the fanny pack.

Apart from owning only a fedora and bucket hat I am not much of a hat fanatic,  heck! I’m still trying to master the art of headwrap tying. One slightly less popular yet practical and tomboy accessory trend is the beret’s cousin- the paperboy cap (a.k.a the baker boy, news boy or poor boy cap). The paperboy cap is a versatile and very laid back accessory which is iconic of the 60s and 70s and made a comeback in the 90s as it was worn by supermodels like Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell.

You can alternate between this Oliver Twist famed hat and Parisian berets in various textures such as canvas, wool, tweed, checks, leather and denim to stay warm. Also, wearing a hat keeps your hair in place and gives some protection from the icy wind and harmful sun rays.

Here are two of my favourite bloggers leading the trend:

Naty Michele @natymichele

Celebrities who also wear the trend well:

Jourdan Dunn
Bella Hadid
