It’s been a nostalgic few years for fashion, and like everything else ‘90s, it looks like the bucket hat is back. They were shown in the spring 2019 shows of Anna Sui, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Louis Vuitton, and Michael Kors. But bucket hats aren’t reserved for the runways – they are also taking to the streets. Fashion insiders were first spotted wearing them last summer, and they have since been creeping into the universal style consciousness.
Before you chalk this up to yet another throwback trend that should’ve stayed in the past, hear us out: The truth is that the bucket hat works well with any look, whether you pair it with relaxed jeans and a trench coat or style it with your fanciest attire. Plus, with designer brands like Prada, Fendi, and Gucci selling bucket hats at big bucks, as well as updated versions being stocked at stores like ASOS and Topshop, it’s no wonder the recycled hat is, once again, becoming a wardrobe staple.
