Rosie Huntington-Whiteley



The ever-so-stylish supermodel stepped out in Los Angeles in a grey Equipment Sloane Cashmere Sweater ($270), Citizens of Humanity Dylan Loose Fit Jeans ($228), and Chloé clutch. She (quite literally) topped her outfit off with a gold-banded Maison Michel cap in a cream hue, giving a laidback, tomboy feel to the ensemble.



Street Style


Stockholm Street Style

If you’re new to the military cap, try an all-neutral outfit, like this street styler. She matched her black cap to her dress, and polished the look off with a cream coat and beige bag. Add definition to the ensemble with a metal belt cinched around the waist!

The French actress attended the Isabel Marant x H&M launch party in Paris donning the collection head-to-toe, including the wool fisherman’s cap. The oversized cardigan combined with her messy, side ponytail resulted in a chic, effortless look.



Saray Martin of Dansvogue

We love the Barcelona blogger’s interpretation of the military cap. She tucked her locks into a vintage hat and added a feminine touch with a vintage, printed shirtdress. The key to her outfit success lays in the details, like her rolled sleeves, belted waist, and berry lipstick.




Ebba Zingmark

For a youthful iteration of this hat, pair it with your favourite mini skirt and brightly-coloured sweater, like Zingmark. She chose an initialed sweater with plaid contrast sleeves, and wore sheer, black tights, resulting in a look that’s delightfully reminiscent of a schoolgirl.





Kate Moss


When trying out a trend, looking to Moss for styling inspiration is a no-brainer, which is why her recent ensemble while out in London works perfectly for today’s story. She paired her cap with an athletic jacket, black t-shirt, and distressed Mango jeans (similar style here).

Iris Gravemaker of Fashion Zen

Winter is an excellent season to pull out your favourite hat, so why not make it the military cap? Gravemaker wore her H&M cap with a cosy Stylish Plus’ Turn-Down Collar Plaid Coat ($54) for an ensemble suitable for all cold-weather occasions!





Suki Waterhouse



Waterhouse’s bohemian take on the military cap shows how versatile this hat can really be. She wore hers with a printed blouse and kept her hair down for a look with undone appeal.

A striped shirt’s je ne sais quoi factor is something to be admired, proving true yet again in this outfit, courtesy of Suarez. The blogger paired her striped TOPMAN t-shirt with a ladylike Bardot Frayed Boucle Jacket ($82) and James Jeans High Class Skinny Jeans ($150). She balanced the preppy look with her H&M cap and metal, stacked rings.








Style Scrapbook

Andy Torres of Style Scrapbook

Why not embrace the origins of this stylish cap and don a military-inspired outfit, like Torres? Her gold button H&M Paris Collection blazer accentuated the soldierly feel of her H&M cap. For the rest of her look, she chose a Zara Basic Denim Shirt ($50), Guess Kate Skinny Jeans ($45), and a petite, structured Rebecca Minkoff Hudson Moto Bag ($365).



The Blonde Salad

Chiara Ferragni of The Blonde Salad

Amp up your cap with a cat eye and attention-grabbing jewellery, like Ferragni. She wore her vintage hat while at Milan Fashion Week, and chose evil eye earrings to create a uniquely-accessorized look.
