On a scale of fedora to baseball cap, you can find bucket hats as a perfect middle ground for a casual outfit. Bucket hats have become a casual accessory found not only in men’s but also women’s wardrobes.
They can be worn various ways and in various types of weather. In the winter, rocking a bucket hat can shield you from the cold air and wind and provide a little comfort from the bitter cold. On the other hand, bucket hats are perfect for the summer because they provide plenty of shade from the sun and help to keep you a little cooler in the heat.
What I love most about bucket hats is that they are for those bad hair days. Sometimes, I hate throwing on a baseball cap because I don’t want to look like I just rolled out of bed, but then I don’t want to wear something like a fedora that is too dressy. So, the bucket hat gives me the best of both worlds, and I achieve a stylish look.
The bucket hat or any hat for that matter can easily add a little flair or extra edge to any outfit. What sets the bucket hat apart is that it is so easy to find in exotic prints or colors. This Fashionisto has this concept down. He is wearing a plain white T-shirt with a pair of jeans. The bucket hat adds a pop of color to his simple outfit by incorporating bright pinks, purples, blues and yellows. Because the bucket hat provides plenty of colors to work with, this Fashionisto is able to tie together his hat with his purple and black Air Jordan sneakers.
How To: Do you feel like your outfit is missing something, but you can’t quite put your finger on it? Throw on a colorful bucket hat with a simple outfit, and you are good to go.
