Its roots go a long way further than the streets of the European fashion capitals. Universally believed that Bucket hat originated around the beginning of the 20th century and was predominantly a headgear of Irish farmers and fishermen. Thanks to its convenience and functionality, the headpiece spread quickly around the world as something that easily fits even the smallest pocket. Fifty years later, the bucket hat became the part of the Vietnam War history, being the item of American soldiers' uniform. The culmination point for the headgear was reached in the 80s, when hip - hop singers made them famous by their music clips. Then for a couple of decades, it seemed that the world forgot a once-beloved hat model. Nowadays, Bucket hats have reemerged as a trendy unisex accessory, raised from the mass-market level to the world of Haute Couture.

The hats come in all forms, hues, and styles. The plain black twill Michael Kors model reminds of a bell by its shape. It goes perfect with the office-looking outfit, consisting of a trench and a jumper-trousers combo. Another black-colored but leather version can become an ideal addition to the rock style of Victoria/Tomas, handpicked from the fellow material midi-skirt and brutal chained blazer. The design from Kenzo suggests the sable sportswear interpretation, which could fit into the street style of the long-sleeve crop-top and mini-skirt.
