Our curated list of the 10 best luxury designer bucket hats this Fall.

We first spotted them on street style trendsetters attending New York Fashion Week in 2019 and now they are everywhere. The gender neutral favorite has been spotted on the attractive noggins of celebs like Rihanna to Justin Beiber, Kaia Gerber to Kanye West.

Many of the luxury designer names we all know and love showed bucket hats on their runways: Prada, Dior, Valentino, Burberry, Jacquemus, and Fendi.

And as I write this from a family reunion at a Midwest lake house, I see the trickle down effect has been swift. All the high school and college-aged nieces, nephews, and cousins are sporting them. As celebrity stylist Zadrian Smith says, “A bucket hat says the wearer is a little more relaxed and chill and has a sense of style, ease, and cool.” Though they may seem more summery, when rendered in quintessential fall textiles and patterns like suede, wool plaids, faux fur and leather – the mood is instant luxury.

We went in search of the 10 best luxury bucket hats to top off your ensemble and look effortlessly chic.
