Do you ever get allocated a task at work and think to yourself ‘I was made for this’. Well, that was me this morning, folks. I was tasked with bringing you, the summer-loving PTV reader, a variety of bucket hats to slap on ye noggin’.
The humble bucket hat made its resurgence late last year and has been a popular sesh staple ever since. Throwing it back to the ’80s and ’90s, we’ve seen a range of printed, woven, towelling and classic styles floating around of late.
And honestly, seshes aside, the whole “dad has gone fishing” look is a fucking vibe. As the proud owner of three bucket hats (linen, woven and towelling), I can confirm they’re comfy, cute and my absolute go-to on a bad hair day.
No doubt you’ve seen celebs like Zoë Kravitz, Hailey Bieber, Bella Hadid and Dua Lipa sporting them all over Instagram, and if I even look half as good in one as they do, my boyfriend (who hates my bucket hats) can fuck off (ily babe). If you haven’t already, it’s time to embrace the bucket hat friends, EMBRACE IT!
