A cap is a form of headgear. Caps are generally soft, and often have no brim, or just a peak (like on a baseball cap).

For many centuries women wore a wide variety of head-coverings which were called caps. In the 18th and 19th centuries for example a cap was a kind of head covering made of a flimsy fabric such as muslin; they were worn indoors by married women, or older unmarried women who were "on the shelf" (e.g. mob-cap).

Specific kinds of caps include the kepi.
