Spring/Summer Trends to Look Out For This Year

Bucket Hats are the Headwear Must-Haves of 2023

Once relegated to the likes of festivals and sunny days on the beach, bucket hats are fast making a name for themselves as the season’s must-have accessory. More and more are making their way to the urban landscape, marking a shift in street fashion towards more youthful styles.

First made popular by fisherman in the early twentieth century, bucket hats only started filtering into the fashion scene around 1960s. Since then, it’s fallen in and out of fashion – but this time it seems to be sticking around for good. Nowadays, the bucket hat is a runway staple, with the likes of Prada, Barbour and Gucci all incorporating versions of the hat into their collections.

Before you shop, keep the planet in mind and make sure to dig through your wardrobe for last year’s garms. Re-wearing old clothes is the best way to be sustainable, but if you can’t avoid it then shop consciously at responsible retailers, as well as rental and resale sites.
