Why Are Colorful Bucket Hats Still In Style In 2022?

You know the old saying, “History repeats itself”? 

Well, it’s true, especially when it comes to fashion. 

Many clothing pieces, like loose-fitting jeans, vests, and certain hats, tend to repeat themselves even decades after they first came out. 

But here’s what’s interesting about today’s fashion… 

While fashion experts are still very highly valued, many people have taken it upon themselves to just create their own look regardless of what the masses have to say. And because of this, there’s a sense of freedom that’s achieved.

This freedom to “wear what you want, when you want” has allowed people to feel more confident in their own skin and clothing choices. 

So, while fashion trends might seem like they repeat themselves, they never really go away in the first place. They just get somewhat silenced by newer, more prominent fashion pieces. 

However, when it comes to fashion hat trends, it seems that there’s only a handful of hats that people quickly reach for. And the hats that seem to get a lot of attention regardless of what decade we’re in are those cute bucket hats

The Aesthetic of Bucket Hats

We know… there’s a certain 90’s aesthetic to the bucket hat. When we say bucket hat, most people think of LL Cool J, Notorious B.I.G., Tyra Banks, Britney Spears, and Christina Aquilera. They all sported a cute bucket hat back in the 90s era. 

But these hats have been around for a long time… We’re talkin’ since the 1900s. 

This raises the question…

What Does a Bucket Hat Symbolize?

Here’s the thing… People back in the 1900s didn’t really wear a bucket hat for its stylish appeal. Nope, they wore them for their functionality and practicality. 

You see, back in those days, they went by a different name: "Fisherman Hats". We know, not exactly a trendy name, but it makes sense. 

Their down-sloped, wide brim helps shade your eyes from the sun (somewhat similar to a sun hat) and keeps your head nice and cool even on those hot summer days. These features alone are what made this hat a “must-have” for anyone who loves being outdoors, especially fishermen. 

But over time, fisherman hats, now known as bucket hats, became one of the most stylish hats in the fashion industry. 

This is partly because they are very versatile fashion pieces. They come in a variety of sizes and styles. But what makes them even more appealing in today's fashion is that they come in various colors.  

What was once plain and neutral has now become bold and colorful. 

This brings us to… 

The Trend of Colored Bucket Hats

Remember when we mentioned that fashion repeats itself? 

Well, it does, but when it does, it often repeats itself with a slight variation. Back in the 90s and early 2000s, bucket hats were usually designed in one solid color: Dark blue, white, black, red, and so on. 

Not many people ventured out of those solid colors. 

Fast forward to 2022, and you have people walking around in those multi-colored bucket hats, and let’s just say… they look amazing. 

A colorful bucket hat has a way of enhancing your overall look and mood. 

Scientists have even found that when people wear certain colors, their overall mood changes. It’s an awesome phenomenon, but we’re not surprised. 

Certain colors can brighten your fashion look as well as your outlook on life. They can increase your confidence, spice up your flair, and even lower your stress. 

So… 

Which Bucket Hat Color Is Best?

For a long time, fashion experts advised that a bucket hat cap should only remain plain and neutral. But not many people took their advice. 

You see, the cutest hats are those that have various colors and designs. 

Yes, we’re talking about flowers, stripes, and unique patterns. What’s the fun in wearing just plain neutral colors? 

We get it, those colors are often the easiest to match. But when you add a pop of color you stand out. 

Now, don’t let standing out scare you. Believe it or not, wearing a colorful bucket hat isn’t going to make you the center of attention. Instead, it’s going to make you feel bolder and more vibrant, both on the inside and on the outside. 

You see, colors like green, blue, red, and purple can stimulate certain emotions. 

For example, green often stimulates healing, hope, and life. 

Blue stimulates calmness and freedom. 

Purple stimulates ambition and luxury. 

Red evokes confidence, strength, and boldness. 

And the list goes on. 

Adding color to your wardrobe, especially when it's on your head makes a huge difference in how you view yourself. 

Now, wearing these colors might seem overwhelming at first. And sure, you’ll catch some people's attention.
