Style Advice

Style the Vandre flannel baseball hat totally casual or dress it up, either way you can't go wrong! The fabric choice and color were also selected to be versatile for EVERYDAY LUXURY.

The baseball hat has always been and will always be a wardrobe item staple for both men and women. They are even more popular today for everyday wear as the workplace becomes more casual. Slowly the baseball hat is transitioning from a weekend only item to an all week item.

The issue with most baseball hats is that they look, and sometimes are, a baseball hat from high school and college, and there is nothing elevated about the baseball hat to go with the rest of your outfit. 

The Vandre baseball hat's luxury material, high-end finishes and minimal branding provides you with a new wardrobe element that was once never considered for an elevated everyday styling.

Below I'm going to outline two ways to style your Vandre baseball hat:

  1. Casual baseball hat styling 
  2. Elevated baseball hat styling

One step above simply throwing on your hat and running to the grocery store is a casual look featuring a nice button down shirt. If your office is casual and even just for a casual Friday, it's a great way to showcase your personal style choices.

The charcoal luxury flannel pairs exceptionally well with blues, blacks and grays, but can also tone down a bold color shirt choice. An added benefit to wearing this hat in the office is that it will definitely help to keep you warm during those chilly months!

Another great way to casually style a baseball hat in the cooler months is to pair the hat with a sweater, denim and boots. In the example below, I choose to style the charcoal hat with a burgundy, chunky cable knit sweater.

Not only is it a bold color choice, but it also has a unique pattern. Pairing the Vandre hat with a sweater is a great way to elevate your casual fall/winter style! Don't forget your face mask, black is my preferred color choice.

I even wear the Vandre baseball hat when we're going out to dinner here in Chicago! Especially now that we're eating outside most places even in the colder weather, it's a great layering piece that will keep you warm!

To bring it down to the basics even more, wear your Vandre luxury baseball hat with a t-shirt and your winter jacket and you are good-to-go! For the brutal winter months pair the flannel hat with a pair of earmuffs and it'll keep you warm!

It's the perfect excuse not to have to spend anytime fixing or doing anything to your hair when you just want to throw some clothes on and run out the door without looking like a total slob.

Inspired by men's suiting, the Vandre luxury hat pairs perfectly with a blazer combination of any kind! This look is a bolder, fashion-forward look and it helps to keep a few critical style tips in mind when pairing a baseball hat with a blazer.

  1. The blazer must have some casual component to it, such as being unstructured or unlined, being a unique material such as tweed, or a bold color (like in the example below). 
  2. The look should be casual at its core, such as wearing jeans or slim chinos. Do not pair this combination with dress slacks. 
  3. It's best to wear a casual button down shirt with the blazer or even a t shirt. Do not wear an untucked dress shirt that's going to hang really low. A casual shirt is meant to be untucked and will not hang below the blazer. 
  4. If you are tucking in your shirt with the blazer and baseball hat look, remember to wear denim or slim chinos. 

The look is still perfect for a casual day in the office, a casual Friday and even a night out on the town in the cooler months!
