Bucket hats are back in season with updated fashion sense

  • NEW YORK TIMES

    The bucket hat has dethroned the fedora as the chapeau du jour. Here are five updated versions to choose from. From left to right: Carhartt Watch Bucket Hat in Soft Teal (top), Herschel SupplyLake Bucket Hat, AMI Bob Hat, Patagonia Mickledore Bucket Hat (bottom), and the Louis Vuitton Bucket Hat.

Forget about “Gilligan’s Island” and the Kangol caps of the ’90s: The bucket hat has dethroned the fedora as the chapeau du jour.

Spotted these days on megastars including Pharrell and Justin Bieber, the floppy topper has also showed up on fashion runways, most notably Prada and Lacoste.

Here are five updated versions to choose from.

>> Feeling Blue: Made from Kuroki cotton denim, this Louis Vuitton hat features stitching details and monogrammed metal studs. Louis Vuitton Bucket Hat, $615 at louisvuitton.com.

>> Halfpipe Approved: Carhartt has become the place where workwear meets streetwear, and this teal, four-panel hat is perfect for fishermen and skaters alike. Carhartt Watch Bucket Hat in Soft Teal, $38 at carhartt-wip.com.

>> For the Great Outdoors: This sporty Patagonia bucket hat, with its floppy brim and adjustable chin strap, is made of recycled nylon that offers protection from UV rays and water. Patagonia Mickledore Bucket Hat. $39 at patagonia.com.

>> Making Waves: If you want a change from your standard aloha shirts, consider the tropical-print bucket hat. Just, whatever you do, don’t wear them together.

>> A Foppish Top: This topper by AMI is evocative of old-school tailoring, but its relaxed shape and soft houndstooth wool give it a younger twist.
