Our checklist for leaving the house has been updated for these times — the "phone, wallet, keys" reprise is now accompanied by "mask, hand sanitizer, and existential dread" — but that doesn't mean the feeling of having left home without something essential has faded away. Even with our go-bags stuffed to the brim, the feeling of completeness can sometimes hinge on our image rather than our arsenals. The very best dressers know this, but they all share a trick for pulling an outfit together at the last moment.

On an outing in New York City this week, Hailey Bieber wore a Bottega Veneta coat, Mother vegan leather pants, and New Balance sneakers, and she topped off the look with a classic black Hommebody baseball cap. Her tailored, streetwear-inspired outfit would have looked good without the top-most accessory, but the final touch made it great, especially when contrasted with her dainty gold hoop earrings: an expert combination of feminine and masculine details.

Bieber has applied this technique to many other outfits, including one in which she matched her cap to her coat. And so many other celebrities are savvy to Bieber's styling trick — Rihanna pared down a sexy going-out look with an FDNY cap, Bella Hadid frequently opts for baseball caps with crop tops and low-rise jeans, Margaret Qualley has worn her cap with a prairie dress, Ana de Armas wears one to go hiking, even Meghan Markle has been known to slyly sport one.

The best part about this brilliant outfit hack is that it's so affordable. Designer versions are available, but you can just as easily opt for an affordable cap, especially since the whole appeal is how down-to-earth it makes an outfit. Below, shop baseball caps from Nordstrom and Amazon, starting at just $8.
