What’s the deal with bucket hats?

If there’s an accessory in this world that reminds me of fishing trips and childhood, that’s the bucket hat. In my family, it was the designated hat for vacations – either going to the beach or in the wild, where supposedly it protected you from heat and mosquitos. It was also a good cover if your hairdresser screwed up ūüėČ

As none of these were particularly glamorous, I thought I could kick that bucket back into the closet the minute I reached adulthood. Ooh, sweet freedom! There was no way I’d go through high school and college wearing this. I was right. The one thing I didn’t imagine though, was that the bucket would kick back, years later.


Now, it’s a runway hit! Excuse me?! Yes, you read that right. Somehow, designers found something cool and sexy in wearing a thing¬†that destroys any hope of having a frizz-free hair some day. At least, other models have structure (baseball caps) or add a touch¬†of mistery to your look (floppy), eccentricity (fascinators) and edge (fedora). ¬†

At BCBGMAXAZRIA, the bucket hat was just a part of the big picture they had in mind for s/s 2016 РSouthern California, surf, music, laying low. Unfortunately, to me, the patchwork did little to increase the cool factor. 


I don’t know about you, but I seriously doubt women will wear a hat that instead of accentuating their fine features, it gives the optical illusion of a full face, with no bone structure.¬†
