This spring, we would have to say the bucket hat is trending – so much so that we are tempted to say it's THE best shade option this season. And no, not only because they're super practical and easy to pair with everything you already own!

The bucket hat originates from its use in old English fishing communities as a sun hat – with the wide silhouette designed to shade fisherman from the sun and protect them from falling objects. When Jeremy Scott debuted his bohemian 70's-inspired collection for Moschino, bucket hats became something of a cult fashion accessory — and rightly so! 

The best thing about this simple hat is that it can be worn in so many ways – as a sun hat, as a bucket hat and even dress it up with enough accessories to make it your own. Whether you're looking for something more simplistic or want one that really stands out, our edit of bucket hats showcases some incredible styles including prints and colours we just love this time of year!

Armani Junior is definitely on trend with its bucket hat, printed in a bold stripe. For the dapper dude or gentleman looking for something to pair with their classic suit, look no further than this one!

From Prada, we're loving eye-catching baseball caps – and this pink version is just perfect to brighten up spring outfits! Available in a range of colours, this lightweight and knitted cap is something you can wear everyday – perhaps even under your helmet!

Fendi's bucket hats don't fail to impress. This one in particular has a sleek and subtle look that pairs well with both casual and smart outfits. The light pink shade makes it especially perfect for springtime!

Asos always brings its A-game when it comes to the beachwear department – this bucket hat is definitely no exception! We're loving its rainbow of colours and playful style. Perfect for those sunny days down at the coast, this one will have you covered from head to toe!

Even though a bucket hat looks good with anything, we think they really make a statement with pastel outfits. Add a case and sunglasses and you'll have an outfit that's ready to go for day or night!
