Facing one of fall's biggest accessory trends head-on
In recent years, bucket hats have become the equalizing accessory, elevating street style and bringing a wearable edge to the runway. Although the unisex style was widely popularized by hip-hop artists in the 1980s, bucket hats give a decidedly '90s flair to headwear as they entered mainstream fashion and pop culture during the noughties. Since designers such as Michael Kors and Chanel began reintroducing the trend for Spring/Summer 2018, they have consistently appeared on catwalks during the following seasons, most recently in the Off-White and Fendi Spring/Summer 2020 men's collections. The style has also become a favorite among models like Bella Hadid, musicians such as FKA Twigs, and a bevy of other celebrities, proving that the bucket hat is here to stay.
