The Bucket Hat: Hit or Miss?

Is this early 2000's trend a sensational hit or an undoubtable miss?

Prada launched their Men's spring summer 2022 collection this week and the centerpiece of the collection was undeniably the BUCKET HAT. This collection has established that the bucket hat is a trendy accessory at the moment.

Though Prada released this collection recently, the bucket hat has been popular over the last few years due to the new wave of early 2000’s based streetwear trends. These trends have included everything from baggy jeans and baguette bags to tiny strap sandals and tube tops.

The bucket hat solidified its roots within early 2000’s fashion when celebrities such as Lindsey Lohan, Justin Timberlake, and Puff Daddy were all photographed sporting the bucket hat.

Though the bucket hat is celebrity approved I can’t say that it is fashion editor approved.

How anyone could be attracted to the bucket hat bewilders me and puts into question whether or not the individual has style. As a fashion editor, I've seen many trends come and go but the bucket hat has overstayed its welcome.
