Trade out your trusty old baseball cap with a new style this spring. From vintage-inspired rope hats to bold prints and graphics, a cool golf hat is a great way to add personality and style to any outfit. While traditional, curved caps will remain a staple in any golfer's closet, flatter-brim hats are on-trend and companies are designing the look to fit any style. For those new to the style, start with a darker color with simple styling, like the Palm Golf Co. or G/FORE caps (below). Once you become more comfortable with the style, explore statement-making pieces like the Puma Pineapple cap or Original Penguin Vintage Print Cap (also below). Just be sure to keep the rest of your outfit tame, if you opt for a bright accessory. Pick out one or two colors in the hat to match your outfit with to create a more deliberate-feeling and stylish look.
