Last year, the bucket hat was seen everywhere from Western runways to Korean streets, and the trend doesn’t seem to go away any time soon.

However, as the plain bucket hats have become a common sight, the new trend among the more fashion-forward crowd is its 90s-style fuzzy sister. Instead of being used to dress down more fancy outfits, these eccentric bucket hats made of mink, fleece, wool or full-on faux fur in bold colours are now the statement piece of the look.
Find out how fashion icons and celebrities such as Rihanna, Gigi Hadid, Dua Lipa and FKA Twigs style their fuzzy bucket hats and how you can rock this trend, too!
The supermodel posted these selfies in which she effortlessly pulls off two trends at once: the fuzzy bucket hat and leopard print. This super chic hat goes perfectly with the retro vibe of the rest of her outfit.
The fuzzy bucket hat isn’t just a fun, trendy piece, it can also be incredibly functional. If you are travelling somewhere cold, take a leaf out of Dua Lipa’s book and pop a winter-appropriate bucket hat over your head to keep it warm.
Riri once again proves that there’s nothing she can’t pull off, not even this green faux fur bucket hat. Her secret? Nothing but confidence. Her nonchalant attitude makes the hat look effortless as if it naturally belongs in the graphic tee and jeans ensemble.
Taking the green faux fur hat even further, this eye-catching hat that FKA Twigs wore at this year’s NME Awards is for the “go big or go home” crowd. However, don’t think this is only for the red carpet. The wide brim of the hat makes it a useful piece of accessory to protect your face from the sun during the day, too.

How to style fuzzy bucket hats
Unless you are on the red carpet or walking the runway, the more eye-catching your hat is, the more casual the rest of your outfit should be to balance out the bolder colours, patterns or textures.
Just like other types of hats, bucket hats can be quite fussy when it comes to what hairstyles can go with it. Top knots or any styling on top of your head are obviously out of the question.
The general rule of thumb is the bigger, wider-brimmed your hat is, the longer and more voluminous your hair should be to balance out the proportion.
If the hat is more subtle, consider long curls or braids to add visual interest to your head area. If the hat is bold enough to be a statement piece, keep your hair simple to avoid clashing.
