Offscreen styling: the Irish cap

Movies and TV shows have always been a huge inspiration for fashion choices. Whether we talk about individuals or fashion designers, the fashion and cinema industry have always been close. But when it comes to styling pieces that you see on TV, if you don’t copy the full outfit, the task gets trickier. If you want subtle inspiration from certain characters you need to pay attention to the general vibe of their outfits and recreate that instead of the outfits themselves. And because we know this is harder, we’re here to help. In this article we have some suggestions on how you can take inspiration from the big screens and take it off screen, into your wardrobe. Read along and get ready for a star look. 

Classy coolness 

The Irish cap is well known for its timeless and classic coolness that takes any casual look to the next level. Take inspiration from characters who effortlessly pull off the laid-back yet sophisticated look such as Arthur Shelby(Peaky Blinders). Pair your Irish cap with a well-fitted denim jacket, a white shirt, and your favorite pair of tailored trousers or jeans. This combination has the perfect balance between casual elegance and a hint of old charm. And in this outfit, the cap adds a truly unique touch, making your outfit stand out with a subtle touch of the classic styles seen on the big screen. 

Street style  

If you want to bring an urban edge to your wardrobe, do so by incorporating the Irish cap into a street-style look. This look is all about combining comfort with a touch of rebellion, the way Frank Underwood(House of Cards) does. If you want to copy his effortless look, throw on an oversized hoodie, some distressed jeans, and a pair of stylish sneakers. Top it off with the Irish cap for an unexpected twist and you’re ready to go.

Vintage touch 

Last but not least, get into the vintage vibes that the Irish cap is highly renowned for. Choose a well-tailored, high-waisted pair of trousers and pair it with a retro-inspired blouse or shirt that’s tucked in. Complete the look with a carefully positioned Irish cap, adding a touch of nostalgia to your outfit. If you want to go even further, add a pair of suspenders for a true Tommy Shelby(Peaky Blinder) appearance. This look is the true vintage approach to styling the Irish cap and you can make it as formal or informal as you want, by just changing the trousers and blouse, but keeping the general vibe.
