Simply put, a baseball cap. But not a snapback, flatbrim, or fitted. A dad hat is a baseball cap that's canvas or cotton and has a slightly curved brim (not toocurved, though) and is probably a little oversized on the wearer. Unless, of course, you're actually a dad—then it probably fits you perfectly.
How do I wear a dad hat? Just put it on your head. They aren't supposed to match your look— that's the genius of dad hats. But when in doubt, pair with a crewneck sweatshirt to really create the best outfit.
