With the ongoing resurgence of Y2K fashion, trends like denim skirts, mini shoulder bags, and chunky shoes have been dominating your Instagram feed and your TikTok ‘For You’ page. Bucket hats have also made their way back onto the fashion scene — and this spring and summer, they’re getting an upgrade. Thanks to celebrities like Hailey Bieber and Billie Eilish, floral bucket hats and patterned bucket hats are having a major moment. Move aside plain, solid-colored headwear.
In general, there’s a good reason for the bucket hat’s rise in popularity: The accessory can be extremely versatile. They can be styled with a trendy top and jeans for an alfresco brunch, with a matching workout set for a hike, or simply with a swimsuit for a day at the beach. Plus, the long, downward sloping brim provides extra protection from the sun. And with the wide variety of colors and patterns now available, there’s endless opportunity for statement making. Hence why Bieber and Eilish can’t seem to get enough of these multi-colored hats these days.
If you’re looking to spice up your headwear style, you should definitely consider taking a cue from the likes of these celebs and add some floral bucket hats and patterned bucket hats to your wardrobe.
Scroll on to see 11 patterned and floral bucket hats you’ll want to wear all day everyday this spring and summer.
