In every fashion girl's arsenal, there's a dependable, wear-everywhere baseball cap that they've called on time and time again. Be it a less-ideal hair day or a morning jog, there's endless reasons to throw on the normcore staple — and just as many ways to style it. If you find yourself defaulting to bike shorts and a tee, you're not alone — luckily, there are scores of It-girls that have put their own twist on demure, here-to-there accoutrement. The eight celebrities that style baseball caps so differently include It-girls like Meghan Markle, Rihanna, and everyone in between — and each makes the look entirely their own.

The endless appeal of the sporty cap is well documented, but it's low-profile silhouette has something extra to offer celebrities. While ducking in and out of airports, hotels, and fashion shows, these girls have learned to integrate the hats in the chicest ways possible, whether tying in a pair of fuzzy princess mules (Dua Lipa) or the black leather Dior Book Tote (Lucy Hale). What's consistent is that each cap is shockingly affordable, with Kendall Jenner and Kaia Gerber's favorites retailing for under $20.

While leaving New York's fabled Mark Hotel, Markle wore a look that was demure and polished. She went with a 'Rectify' hat (to rep her friend, Abigail Spencer's latest television show), a wool Prada peacoat, Adidas sneakers, and a Cuyana leather tote bag. The camel trench was the perfect addition to the all-black ensemble.

Never one to shy away from a bold menswear look (especially if it's Virgil Abloh's Louis Vuitton), Gigi Hadid stepped out at Paris Fashion Week in 2019, wearing a tonally synced button-up and trousers, with a backwards LV-plastered snapback on her head. While the whole look is sold out, Fendi's canvas cap is a close alternate.

Rihanna's spin on the sporty cap trend is primed wearing on late nights-turned-early mornings. Along with a matching pinstripe jacket and trousers, the entrepreneur behind her FENTY fashion line styled a basic, heather gray tank top and a low-key hat.

When landing at Heathrow Airport, it was Future Nostalgia singer Dua Lipa's footwear choice — a pair of fluffy Natasha Zinko mules in baby pink — that was most surprising.
