Bucket hats and summer go together like peanut butter and jelly, and they’re so nostalgic. Think back to the early 1990s when the late Princess of R&B, Aaliyah, stayed in a bucket hat while cheesing for the camera. And, we can’t forget LL Cool J who basically invented the Kangol bucket hat.
The newest bucket hat fashion trend that is sweeping the internet—and streets—is the accessory’s crochet version. Everywhere you turn, or everywhere you swipe, you’ll likely see someone in one of the trendy hats to help protect their melanin from the sun’s harsh rays.
