It all started when Rihanna stepped out in New York this summer wearing Prada’s nylon bucket hat in a chic seafoam green colour-way. Paired with a printed top and jeans, she made it look downright cool and not at all childlike. Soon after, in September, I spotted Brad Pitt wearing a sleek all-white style to the US Open, looking like the style icon that he is. Cut to Fashion Week this autumn, and many VIPs were wearing them in the front rows, including British Vogue ’s Edward Enninful, who wore a black bucket hat to many shows. He even managed to pair it with a sleek suit and look like a total boss.
If the topper is good enough for Rihanna, it’s good enough for all of us.
