SOS: BUCKET HATS HAS NOW ENTERED THE RUNWAY

Winter headwear usually means one thing: beanies. We’re talking about crisply cuffed, tiny beanies, ultra-bright neon beanies, and every other type of beanie under the chilly winter sun. Fact: We lose a significant amount of heat through our heads (though not as much as was initially believed)—which is why it’s always wise to wear a hat in the fall and wintertime cold. It’s the cold-weather accessory that keeps your noggin from freezing while also making you look more rugged and outdoorsy than you are. It is also, on occasion, a little tired. So, this year, why not change things up just a bit? If you’re looking for a break from wearing a beanie every day, consider the winterized bucket hat from honeybum.com.

Given this fact, I figured I’d scour our Instagram @beautyleebar, in search of fresh bucket hat outfit ideas. Bucket hats are by no means a new trend (they have dominated our feeds all summer), but that doesn’t mean they aren’t an accessory that could use some styling inspiration. And what better way to embrace the trend, than with a little help from our friends? Keep reading for all the various ways to wear bucket hats and to shop the key pieces to create the look for yourself.

WAYS TO STYLE BUCKET HATS:

♡ Swimsuit and a bucket hat. It may be fall, but that doesn’t mean your socially distanced days outside need to be over. In fact, if you slip off to the water nearby don’t forget to pair your favorite suit with a bucket hat. Instagram-cool-girls and Love Island’s Ovie Soko, is sooo the vibe. We even saw it on the runway, from Fendi and Dior to Emilio Pucci.

♡ Groutfit (head to toe grey look) with a bucket hat. Bucket hats aren’t just for those summer days. In fact, we implore you to copyreader Sara Flaaen and wear your hat well into the winter. Just pair it with a head-to-toe sweater groutfit and you’ll be cozy and chic for the coming months.

♡ Matching cardigan and bucket hat with white cargo pants. Another simple outfit idea that can include your favorite bucket hat, is by pairing it with a matching cardigan. Just be sure to pick the color that suits you best.

♡ Padded black T-shirt, combat boots, and a gingham bucket hat. Maybe it’s just us, but we’re very much a fan of this grunge-inspired look. We love when an outfit nails multiple trends, and this bucket outfit idea from Div Ravindran does just that. Pairing a gingham hat with the popular padded T-shirt and combat boots is the grudge meets polished look we never knew we needed to copy.

♡ Monochrome look, except for the bucket hat. There’s no better way to show off your favorite printed bucket hat than by pairing it with a monochrome ensemble. Whether you opt for nude, black, or go bold like Aniyah Morinia in an all-white look, your bucket hat outfit will be sure to stun.

♡ Matching set or boilersuit with sandals and a bucket hat. The best thing about bucket hats (other than the fact they’re great for bad hair days) is that they come in so many different variations and can be styled in so many various ways. If you’re not sure where to start, look for Cindy for inspiration and opt for an earth-toned bucket hat paired with a simple boilersuit. We promise this is a no-fail way to wear your new hat.

♡ Sweater-vest, exaggerated collar button up, pearls, and a fuzzy bucket hat. It doesn’t get any funner or more fashionable than Nnenna Echem’s bucket hat outfit. The fuzzy hat? The sweater vest? The exaggerated collar? Perfection. And the great thing about this outfit is that you can re-create it at home.

♡ Nude button-up with a matching bucket hat and gold hoops. The surefire way to pull off a bucket hat outfit? Just take a cue from Kristina Pittam and opt for a head-to-toe nude look. You won’t regret it.

♡ Oversize sweatshirt, slide sandals, bucket hat. Bucket-hat outfits aren’t just trendy—they’re the epitome of functional and fashionable. Don’t believe us? Look no further than this outfit from Rachel Nosco. Whether you’re at home or rolling out of bed for a quick run to your bodega, throwing on your go-to oversize sweatshirt with a colorful bucket hat and slides is a look you can count on.

♡ Blazer, bra top, Capri shorts, and bucket hat. We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: Bra tops are here to stay. And what better way to celebrate our intimates gets the limelight they deserve than pairing them with the other trend that’s here to stay? Bucket hats. If the look is too risquĂ© for your taste, try throwing on a blazer and a Capri short like Matilde Mantini for a more daylight-friendly look.

♡ Matching set outfit, sandals, and bucket hat. Want the comfort of being in a bralette, without showing the whole world? Look no further than Tiffany Wang’s matching set with a bucket hat. This is a look you’ll want to bookmark for when you want to be cozy but still need to be Zoom-appropriate.

♡ Turtleneck, jeans, and a bucket hat. We’d like to introduce you to the simplest bucket hat outfit idea that you probably already own: this look from BeautyLeeBar Editor Lee. Pull out your trusty turtleneck and jeans, and then throw on the bucket hat, and voilà!

♡ Bomber jacket, bra top, jeans, and a bucket hat. Not ready to bust out your turtlenecks? How about you copy Jamilla Strand and pair the crop top you’ve been wearing all summer with a bomber jacket and bucket hat for a fall-ready outfit that you won’t overheat in?

♡ Off-the-shoulder top, statement pants, a statement bucket hat, and platform sandals. The great thing about bucket hats is that they’re meant to make a statement. We suggest like reader Max, you go bold with your bucket hat outfit, and mix-and-match your patterns for an outfit idea like no other.

♡ Bucket hat with matching oversize cardigan, tank, and briefs. You’ve made it this far, and you’re probably thinking—these ideas are cute, but I have nowhere to go. But we’re here to tell you that you don’t have to go out in order to be able to put on your bucket hat. Just look to Amaka Hamelijnck as proof. Throw on your briefs, a halter tank, a cardigan, and your bucket hat for a cozy at-home fit that’s still chic.

♡ Crop top, high-waisted denim, chains, ’90s shoulder bag, and a bucket hat. f you’re looking for an easy way to incorporate bucket hats into your go-to weekend ensembles, look no further than Angelina for inspiration. Just pair your trusty shoulder bag, crop top, and favorite pair of jeans with your new hat for the perfect off-duty look.

♡ Leather coat, white top, black jeans, oversize sunglasses, and a fuzzy bucket hat. No matter your budget, another way to make your bucket hat outfit look luxe is by playing with textures. We’d suggest looking to reader uzi for inspiration. Don’t be afraid to mix faux leather with faux fur, or luxe pieces with affordable pieces. Just try to keep them in the same color family so that you can pull this look off with ease.

♡ Matching coat and bucket hat. We live for a matching moment—and it’s even better when the moment includes a bucket hat. No matter if you opt for a matching plaid coat and bucket hat like Lois Opoku, or pick a solid color this is an outfit combination that works for any style, any time, and just about anywhere. 

♡ Bucket hat with matching blazer. Not to be a broken record here, but matching your bucket hat to match other parts of your outfits is too cute not to try. And reader Haydy’s matching blazer and bucket hat outfit idea is further proof this is a look that’s super easy to incorporate into any wardrobe. All you have to do is find a hat that matches your favorite outerwear.

♡ Bucket hat with a cutout or lace up-detailed piece. Sure there are a lot of trends we say are big—but if you’ve scrolled through Instagram enough at some point you’ve probably recognized the rise in pieces with cutouts or lace-up details. And these trends will continue to be popular—so what better way to embrace the trend, than pairing it with a bucket hat. Whether you choose to opt for a look that includes both cutouts and lace-up details like Caroline Hu, or just pick one statement piece; this a look that is sure to be on-trend this season.

♡ Animal print bucket hat, a colorful sweater, leather pants, and a coat. If you’re not a fan of matching your outerwear or layers, then let Gemma Katrina’s be your muse, and don’t be afraid to mix it up. Just be sure to pick a bucket hat that makes a statement when styling your look.

♡ Oversize bucket hat, puff-sleeve crop top, linen pants. While we may be excited to break out our fall and winter wardrobes, some parts of the world are still feeling the summer heat.

♡ Shearling bucket hat with a matching coat. When it gets colder you don’t have to ditch your bucket hat—in fact, you like Olivia Natalie can use it to keep you warm by opting for a hat with faux shearling to match your coat. It’s not only cozy, but it’s chic.

♡ Oversize cardigan, knee-high boots, and a bucket hat. Somewhere in-between not too hot, not too cold weather? Why not opt for pairing your bucket hat with an oversize cardigan and your knee-high boots like Alice Festiova? It’s perfect for transitional weather. 

♡ Bucket hat, knit top, and cargo pants. You don’t have to limit yourself to pairing your bucket hat with just denim or dresses; in fact, if you’re in need of another bucket hat outfit idea look to Emily Aaron for inspiration. Pair your favorite knit cardigan with cargo pants for a unique way to style your go-to bucket hat.

♡ All-black outfit with chains and a white bucket hat. You’ve made it this far, and we wanted to remind you that to recreate your very own bucket hat outfit idea you don’t necessarily need to buy a ton of new pieces—you can work with what you got. Case in point: Michella Choi’s outfit. Pull out your favorite black jeans, top, and a bucket hat to recreate this look—there’s no need to splurge. But if you do want to, we recommend adding a statement necklace or shoulder bag to make this outfit idea feel like your very own.

♡ Oversize blazer dress, ankle boots, and a bucket hat. What’s great about bucket hats is they really can be styled with just about anything—from oversize blazer dresses, like Lien’s (click her name to see) to pair with jeans, this is a staple that has endless iterations, and various ways to be worn. Bucket hats, therefore, are here to stay—and we’re not mad about it.
