Bucket hats are something I tried to avoid for as long as possible. When I saw them picking up popularity, I kept thinking of fishermen or toddlers... which are both great things, but not in my style wheel-house.


But wow... I was SO WRONG!


The trick to styling a bucket hat in a manner that isn't too juvenile or too "streetwear" is to pick a neutral color.


I saw a beige on from Burberry with their classic "nova check" pattern and my whole opinion of this fashion accessory flipped on its head.


Luckily, I was able to find this similar one on Depop, so if you're not sure where to start, start there.

High-Fashion


Paring the bucket hat with other neutral pieces is my favorite way to go about wearing this accessory. The pairing pieces are high-quality and feminine, like this coat and boots.


This ensures that the bucket hat works to amplify my feminine style, not diminish it.

Casual


I always love to throw in a casual look because this is how most of us leave the house day-to-day.


I paired the bucket hat with a crew-neck sweater and a neutral grey skirt (to tie in the hat color-wise, but bring the looks some feminine flare).


It ended up looking pretty "streetwear" but wasn't too baggy or boyish for my taste.

As intended


Turns out, I do dress like a fisherman every once in a while! My fiance and I went on a camping trip and my bucket hat was perfect for the occasion.


So not only is this piece versatile in the way you can style it, but also in it's utility!

I highly recommend giving this accessory a try this spring.


It's a really fun piece to style!


Love,
