the baseball cap.

The first baseball hats were made out of straw and were first worn by the New York Knickerbockers on the 24th of April 1849. After a few years of straw, the cap transformed and started being made out of merino wool. During the 1940’s, latex rubber was used to stiffen the material inside the hat. This was when the modern baseball cap was first born!

the orange maxi-dress.

Oscar de La Renta created the first maxi in 1968. It was made out of cotton lace and was for Elizabeth Arden Salon. I’ve written about the mini dress and so it’s only fitting that I write about the maxi dress.
