Here in Texas, wild Bluebonnets are popping up left and right. The weather is getting warmer, and the sun shines a little bit brighter, even on rainy days. It's springtime.
As the heat rolls in, we put away our winter sweaters and pull out our summer clothes--the clothes we'll wear to collect seashells at the beach, have picnics in the shade, and walk along the boardwalk... of course, sometimes the clothes we already have just don't cut it.
A new season is the perfect time for new beginnings, and that includes new clothes! Adding a few new accessories to your wardrobe (like hats and scarves) can completely update your look in a fashionable, bright, and beautiful way that perfectly reflects the season. One accessory that we love for Spring and Summer is bucket hats.
Bucket hats were a popular runway trend this season with designers like Chanel, Dior, Fenty, Prada, and more adorning runway models in bucket hats of different textures, sizes, and materials. We can't blame them for falling in love with this style, and we can't help but feel bucket hats are one of the coolest trends of the season.
Why You Should Wear Bucket Hats
1. Bucket Hats are Versatile
Bucket Hats come in tons of styles, from handmade crocheted caps to water-resistant hats. There's a bucket hat for any and every occasion. Some bucket hats are even reversible, so you get two hats in one.
2. Bucket Hats are Comfortable
The classic, casual bucket hat style is super easy to wear. The basic cut of bucket hats makes them super comfortable on the head.
3. Bucket Hats are Practical
Bucket hats are basically the perfect summer accessory, because they protect you from the sun (and rain) while keeping you super stylish. Plus, bucket hats are less cumbersome than wide brim sun hats, which makes them a great choice for travel.
4. Bucket Hats are Chic
In addition to being spotted on the runway time and time again, celebrities and models like Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid, and Rihanna have all been seen wearing bucket hats out and about.
