If straw hats aren’t your thing, bucket hats could be the perfect way to protect your face from the sun this summer.
If you haven’t subscribed to the trend yet, there’s still time. As the resurgence of 90s and noughties style continues with the rising popularity of mules, cargo pants, bandanas and mom jeans, it’s clear we’re yet to see much more of bucket hats.

Stars Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera and Naomi Campbell wore them back in the 90s, and now Hailey Bieber, Rihanna, Beyoncé and Bella Hadid are bringing them back. Meanwhile many designers including Erdem, Loewe and Jacquemus are also making a case for the fisherman hats in 2021.
As a result searches for bucket style are on the up, with crochet styles in particular rising by 46%, according to Lyst.
