Not sure if you want to pair a bucket hat with your everyday casuals? Try it out on the beach first. The bucket hat + bikini look is a big trend among fashionistas and since you are at the beach anyway, no one will really care too much about what you are wearing.

2. Go for whites and neutrals.

Any white or neutral-colored accessory is a great fashion investment because this will look good with virtually anything in your closet. Not only is it a versatile color, it can also be worn all-year-long, regardless of the season.

3. Dress it up.

Who says bucket hats are for casual days only? This accessory can also be dressed up with the right kind of outfit. Choose a piece that has a more structured silhouette with a classic color. This can be a great topper to your favorite dress and heels combo.

4. Go for nylon.
