The humble baseball cap is a cheat code when it comes to styling. Even in its most simple form, it caters to both form and function — adding a cap to your fit can round out a look while also providing much-needed protection from the sun (gotta keep this skin looking fresh). But the best part of hats is without a doubt, the price.

Affordable hats are everywhere and you don’t need to look far to find cool cheap hats. Whether you’re looking to tap into a higher-end brand like Neighborhood or find your everyday unassuming staple, you can cop it all for under $50.

Below, we’ve gathered the best cheap caps for you to shop. From a 90s-feeling Carhartt x A.P.C. collab, an ode to Colette, or a Grateful Dead trucker hat, we’ve got you covered.

It's always a good idea to have an all-black option in your headwear collection, because you can wear it with virtually anything. And coming from Arc'teryx, you don't have to worry about the quality. The brand's Bird Baseball Hat is a universal style with that unmistakable logo embroidered on the front.

Gramicci Yellow Umpire Cap

GramicciUmpire Cap 2.0
Buy at Highsnobiety

Yellow is a seriously underrated color — it’s bright (so it lifts your mood) and as we previously wrote it’s a shade synonymous with summer, the sun, and positivity in general.

The shade is also surprisingly wearable, and Gramicci’s mustard dad cap is an easy hue to style. But, if you’re not convinced, there’s also a navy version for the yellow adverse.

Paterson Paris Cap

The Paris Cap from Paterson will bring a splash of color to your ensemble, as the hat is offered in a minty green colorway. Multicolored branding livens up the cap even further, while a brown leather strap provides the design with another complementary dimension.

Carhartt is the gold standard of workwear so it makes sense the brand knows its caps — how else are you going to keep the sun out of your eyes? Now, teaming up with A.P.C., Carhartt has elevated its headwear game. The denim version gives us Britney and Justin at the VMA vibes, while the khaki stays true to the brand’s roots.
