The popularity of the bucket hat, which has now ebbed and flowed for a full five decades, is undeniably experiencing yet another upswing. As with most trends, Rihanna is in part to thank for its latest resurgence; who wouldn’t want to try out the look after Rihanna wore a snakeskin version by Atelier Versace? At this point, a scroll through the past few months of seemingly every celebrity’s Instagram feed will reliably turn up a photo of them in a bucket hat, ranging from fuzzy versions that wearers like Emma Chamberlain will be able to wear year-round to the cheetah-print ones favored by Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid. (Only a lucky few have been able to show off the Ikea bags-turned-bucket hats that the chain released on the first day of summer, which sold out almost immediately.) From Billie Eilish’s rainbow Louis Vuitton version to Dua Lipa’s bucket-cowboy hat hybrid, take a look at some of the trend’s foremost supporters this spring and summer, here.

Before their marathon run of coordinating outfits in Turks and Caicos, Kylie Jenner and her friend Anastasia Karanikolaou, aka @stassiebaby, matched in Chanel sneakers and tartan headgear by Burberry. Jenner, of course, picked the more on-trend option.

Jenner, it turns out, was taking a page out of her friend Gigi Hadid’s book; the model also wore a cheetah-print bucket hat earlier this spring.

Two weeks after kicking off July in a bucket hat combined with a visor, the singer Dua Lipa turned to another hybrid: a mix between a bucket and a cowboy hat.
