Tie-dye isn't the only California cool trend to resurface over the past few seasons: welcome the versatile bucket hat.
The bucket hat (or the fisherman hat, as it's sometimes called) may have had its fashion heyday back in the '90s, but it's been having a major resurgence on the runways ever since Fall 2018 when it's been seen on both the runways of Prada and Lacoste. Fast-forward to Spring/Summer 2019, and they were seen all over, from R13's snakeskin and leopard print caps to Anna Sui's tropical jacquard versions to the oversized shields at 3.1 Phillip Lim. And now, they're just about everywhere, and available at every price point.
This summer's iterations are not only the perfect way to top off your look, but they're also pretty practical for days spent under the sun. Offering an extra dose of sun protection to your scalp, hair, and face, they make an excellent addition to your daily SPF, especially if you're planning to spend some time outdoors.
Below, we rounded up the best bucket hats of the summer, from tie-dye canvas to tortoiseshell PVC, to wear all summer long. And if there's any indication from the Fall 2019 runways, bucket hats aren't going anywhere anytime soon, so consider these a sound investment.
