The hat that every fashion follower is currently wearing is the bucket hat. While this hat type may have had a questionable reputation in the past, it has quickly morphed from a dreaded item into a fashion must-have. Bucket hats have become the signature summer wardrobe of Scandinavian girls and the finishing touch to any water-draining ensemble on the streets of New York, London and Paris.
From Fishermen to Fashionistas The bucket hat has a long history, that includes everything from harsh weather to soldiers. It can be considered the oldest of hats, initially loved for its practicality. Originally designed with a longer brim at the back and made from robust and waterproof fabric, fishermen working off the coast of Cape Cod mainly wore bucket hats. Over the years, the brim of the bucket hat has evolved. Nowadays, the width of the brim is narrower and even longer to improve comfort. Like the Breton or the Aran Knit, the bucket hat has become a classic over the years and a style legacy still with us today. You may like the slim crown bucket hat if you have a small and long face. If your face is a bit chubby, you may prefer a bucket hat with a wider crown.
