Bucket hats are big business. Believe us.
This stylish and versatile headwear has been rocked by everyone from Jay-Z to Samuel L Jackson to Rihanna. They match with most outfits, keep out the sun and look a million dollars when worn right.
Kangol may be the brand most associated with the bucket hat but over the years many fashion heavyweights have released their own designer bucket hats. We've rounded up some of our favourites, including bucket hats from the likes of Prada, Dior and Gucci.
Below are the perfect bucket hats to keep you in with the cool crowd. But be warned: they don't come cheap!
Prada Bucket Hat
Prada is well known for its bucket Hats and this classic Triangle Logo-Plaque Bucket Hat is simple but effective. The plaque of the Triangle logo is the little detail that marks the hat out. It was made in Italy with a softened crown, ensuring comfort for all heads, while the durable nylon fabric became a Prada signature in the 1980s. Just class.
GUCCI Bucket Hat
This green Gucci bucket hat is reversible, so you can have two different styles to choose from depending on your outfit – or mood – for the day. One side is made from monogrammed cotton-blend canvas and the other side is midnight-blue twill. The hat is covered in the GUCCI emblem and made in Italy, naturally.
DIOR Bucket Hat
This black Dior bucket hat is made from cotton canvas and features gray Dior and Kenny Scharf embroidery on the front. Its style was reimagined from the 1990s through the collaboration with the American artist Scharf. This is the perfect bucket hat to bring a more casual look to an outfit.
BURBERRY Bucket Hat
Burberry’s bright yellow reversible bucket hat was woven in Italy and has two eyelets embroidered in the wool-blend twill for ventilation. Again, it’s reversible: turn it inside out to reveal the famous Nova check that has defined the brand since the 1920s.
LOUIS VUITTON Bucket Hat
Not only two hats for the price of one – it’s another reversible – but a hat that will match your footwear: the design complements Louis Vuitton’s SS shoes collection. The denim side of the hat was created using a Jacquard weave technique; the other side is block colour featuring the brand name. (You really want people to see the brand name.)
FENDI Bucket Hat
This very fashionable black bucket hat was made in Italy from cotton canvas. The FENDI moniker is embroidered in bright yellow so everybody can see what brand you’re rocking. This hat is suited for any casual or street look: dressing down needn’t mean dressing drab.
CHANEL Bucket Hat
This black and white Chanel bucket hat is made out of mixed fibres. The white pattern on the hat subtly features the Chanel emblem but you’ll have to look closely. Perfect for a cold winter to keep yourself nice and warm – albeit very stylishly.
