Hey Friends, How you Doin’ (Wendy Williams Voice)
So it looks like the ‘90s are still at it again with the latest accessory to crawl out of this era and straight into 2014 It-status being… drum roll please… BUCKET HATS. Yes, the floppy headgear made famous by hip-hop luminary LL Cool J is now hot property once again. It’s gaining popularity with this generation’s rappers, seen on the likes of Wiz Khalifa and School Boy Q (who rapped “Brought the gangsters back to bucket hat, how real is that?”), as well as Rick Ross, Earl Sweatshirt and A$AP Ferg .
It is also making a wave within the street style culture. I am sure some of you are wondering how a hat that was reserved mainly for farmers, fishermen and pre-school kids became such a big fashion craze. Before you get all eye roll-y, just hear us out:Bucket hats are back, and we shouldn’t be so mad about it. They have been spotted on everyone from Rihanna, Miley Cyrus to the entire A$AP Mob and you can thank Run DMC, LL Cool J, and Aaliyah (RIP) for that. So, why exactly we should be rockin’ a bucket hat in 2014.
This trend is spreading good vibes. It’s rare that accessories can actually change our mood . The modern bucket hat has come to express a strange mix of sartorial statements: the most “norm” of normcore looks combined with humour and a note of gangster toughness. After all Rihanna has been wearing them for months and where she goes the rest of fashion is sure to follow.
We are wondering if this trend should stay back in the previous decade or comeback to our welcoming fashion forward world.
Be the judge!!!
Check You guys out later. HAPPY FRIDAY!!
