The ‘90s bucket hat is officially ‘The Hat’ of 2020. This gender-neutral headwear proved to be a popular way to hide bad hair days during lockdown, and continues to be a favourite with fashionistas, even now that their manes have been tamed.
Loved by Fashion Editors, models, influencers and celebrities, the bucket hat has been spotted on pretty much everyone, from Bella Hadid to Billie Eilish. And it’s easy to see why. Bucket hats suit all face shapes and there’s enough variety of styles that you can find the perfect one for you. You can opt for a more structured fit made from vinyl or straw, or a softer cap made from cotton.
The lack of music festivals this year hasn’t stopped festival fashion filtering into our wardrobes and the bucket hat is the staple that makes that cross-over with ease. The instant street style credibility of a bucket hat can transform any look from ordinary to Instagram-worthy, plus you can leave your hair down or style it in braids and it still fits comfortably.
The question is not so much are you getting a bucket hat, but when?
