Not gonna lie, I love a hat – it’s one of those accessories that can really shift your outfit and style to the next level (or perhaps bring it down a notch). Personally, I love a classic baseball hat as my casual, lazy, hide-my-hair-regrowth weekend vibe, and there’s the ever so stylish Panama, which I absolutely adore! But at the moment, we have a bit of a game-changer in headwear trends: the trusty bucket hat!
Although they’re usually thought of only as part of Aussie summer school uniforms or as grandad’s well-worn fishing hat, this underdog is having its moment – and it all started with Rihanna. The fashion icon wore a chic sea-foam green version of Prada's nylon bucket hat in New York this summer, making it look super chic with a pair of jeans and graphic top.
Then I saw Justin Bieber sporting a hot-pink Stüssy bucket hat, and I’ve seriously never wanted one more! Ever since, we’ve seen celebrities like Billie Eilish, Brad Pitt, and Gigi Hadid all transforming the bucket hat into a must-have stylish accessory.
Bucket hats come in a variety of colors, fabrics, and of course now with bling. There aren't too many rules with this one, our favorite celebrities have worn it with just about everything!
So, here are a few of my favourites! I must say, I'm totally on board with the bucket hat trend (I recently purchased a super fun bucket hat from Jay Jay's, and I may be in the market for more!).
Not bad for something that was designed as humble headgear for fishermen.
