Bucket Hats: The Style Hack For Your Newfound Video Conferencing Life

Style, ease and comfort: the bucket hat is your hat trick to looking good and video-ready for that next webcam meeting.

Bucket hats might have once served very practical purposes – but its utilitarian beginnings have propelled the humble headpiece into every trendsetting star’s wardrobe rotation across generations. In the ’90s, it was the staple of cool kids like Liam Gallagher and LL Cool J (long before his Lip Sync Battle career) while Britney made it trend in the early aughts (remember Crossroads?) . Flash forward to the present day and we’ve seen Gen Z songstress Billie Eilish in a rainbow terrycloth Louis Vuitton number, model Elsa Hosk flex her sleek nylon Prada piece and pop star Dua Lipa in a ’90s Cross Colours classic.

The trend has seen a number of variations popping up this season, proving there is something for everyone. At Gucci, a powdery-pink wool bucket hat lets you channel some bubblegum cuteness while Burberry has a more muted take with a canvas number in neutral. With a bucket hat’s ability to instantly add a dash of cool to any getup, the style has turned out to be the easiest way to look effortless hip while taming bad hair moments the next time we jump on a conference call.
