Bucket hats are back! Are you here for it?
For a ~millennial like me, bucket hats bring fond memories of the ’90s and early noughties. There’s the vision of Britney Spears in the ‘Sometimes’ music video as well as playing under the sun with these trusty hats on.
More recently, they’ve been the accessory du jour of the music crowd.
There’s, of course, Rihanna looking good in anything and everything — bucket hats, included. And she’s worn them quite a number of times in different styles, from fuzzy to patterned to plain denim and more.
There’s also Justin Bieber, who not only wore them but also offered them in his Drew House brand.
Billie Eilish is a known fan of the accessory too, which goes swimmingly with her ’90s aesthetic.
While my personal style may not be able to squeeze in a moment with bucket hats — though I’m quite curious to see if I can pull off something like this with an all-black look or this with a more feminine silhouette — I’m glad to see that so many others with a renewed or newfound love for them.
There was a growing interest for the style — in crochet, specifically — starting April, according to Lyst. In May, people were still looking for the style though in a wide-brimmed version. But these instances just go to show that they’re definitely back and won’t go away from people’s wardrobes anytime soon.
