Yes, the bucket hat is back. It might have been the butt of jokes for years, but icons like Billie Eilish, Rihanna, Gigi Hadid and the VSCO girls helped bring this much maligned hat from the fashion graveyard. Nostalgia for the ’80s and early ’90s might have also been a contributing factor. The times were simpler and the fashion was pretty wild. Fashion icon and basketball star Dennis Rodman, who resurfaced in the Chicago Bulls documentary The Last Dance, certainly loves a good bucket hat. We can see why, though. These hats are practical and stylish, which is definitely a winning combo.
Bucket hats are usually made out of 100 percent cotton, which means that they’re breathable. Your head won’t get too hot and sweaty when you’re wearing this hat around town or hiking.
