One day, we’ll show off fits in real life again, even if it takes a little re-learning along the way. The Highsnobiety Summer Style Guide is here to help, ensuring that lightweight pieces still result in heavyweight looks.

Whether you've woken up with a wild head of hair or you need to breathe some life into a tired fit, a cap is an instant fix that, in our opinion, doesn't get the recognition it deserves. Therefore, we've selected some current favorites that'll provide the cherry on top of the cake — all at affordable prices, too.

From New York royalty in the form of a Yankees cap to a headwear option from the virtual gift shop of our Not In Paris exhibition, we've traveled all corners of the world to round up the best affordable caps that the net has to offer. Whether you're into staple hats or something with a statement punch, keep scrolling.
