    When snapbacks made their first entry into the fashion scene, they were a bomb. Every middle-aged man would give anything to rock one of these godly hats. They were defining your fashion sense and if you didn’t have one, you were considered a fashion invalid.

    A common misconception surrounding the history of the snapback is the decade it originates from. Whilst most people associate the snapback with the nineties rap music scene, it actually originated in nineteen-fifties baseball culture.

    After initially being worn by the Brooklyn Excelsiors in 1958, the snapback was in high demand and hat-makers were keen to capitalise off the new hat design. Four decades on, in the nineteen-nineties, the snapback returned and became one of the fashion trends that defined the decade. This time, it wasn't baseball players, but rap and hip-hop performers popularising the snapback.

    This rich history doesn't mean the snapback hasn’t faced significant competition. The most notable being its nineties rival, the bucket hat. In the last few years, the popularity of the bucket hat has soared. Alongside the bucket hat, the humble knit beanie and the Parisian beret have also been worthy contenders.

    It’s clear that the popularity of the snapback continuously wavers, and is closely linked to prevalent hairstyles.

    Despite these fluctuations, the snapback keeps returning and gaining mass popularity as a fashion trend every few years. As a leading hat retailer, we're constantly asking ourselves what it is that makes the snapback so popular? Is it the rich history or simply how easy the cap is to style?

    As we've briefly outlined, snapbacks have a fascinating cultural history. This history dates back to the nineteen-fifties when the Brooklyn baseball team debuted the style, to more familiar (and more hilarious) styling from actor and icon Will Smith in The Fresh Prince of Bel Air. Smith and other hip-hop icons of the nineties made snapbacks one of the most iconic fashion accessories of the decade. It was here that the snapback became the trendy street style accessory we associate it with being today.

    In the nineties, as in the modern-day, the snapback is more at home when styled with a graphic tee, baggy jeans and sneakers. Attend any skate park or hip hop show, and you’ll encounter a sea of caps and the cool yet casual outfits associated with them.

    Wearing your snapback facing backward
    You have to be extra careful if you choose to wear your snapback facing backward. This style tends to look outdated and awkward if not pulled off correctly. A lot of people consider it juvenile. However, you can sure look stylish and confident if you pull it off successfully. While wearing your hat this way, be sure to pair it with contemporary and modern outfits. Ensure your gear looks as casual as possible. This style portrays a relaxed and sometimes a carefree vibe. You do not want to mess it up with smart casual outfits.

    Make no mistake; this style is suitable for streetwear. Just place the hat high on your head, and let the brim face downwards. It can be a little awkward to have the brim stay straight.
