This type of hat is a true fashion statement, but it only works with some clothing styles. For instance, business or elegant clothes should usually leave the snapback out of the equation. But smart casual outfits can really benefit from a snapback cap.
For example, you could pair a long sleeve shirt with a snapback hat to create a clean look. With this style, it’s best to wear the hat facing forward.
In general, wearing the snapback facing forward creates the sleekest look. It conveys a sort of seriousness mixed with a down-to-earth attitude. For people with longer hair, it’s best to forgo the ponytail sticking through the back. Instead, wear your hair down and loose around the hat to avoid looking too sporty.
If you want to wear the snapback backwards, it’s recommended to pair it with hip-hop fashion. However, ensure you wear the brim low, almost touching your neck, with more of the forehead exposed. Otherwise, you run the risk of looking outdated.
No matter what, do not wear the hat sideways. People may have been able to pull this look off in the past, but it does not work at all in the 2020s.
