Traditionally worn by fishermen, the bucket hat appears to be the latest must-have headwear in Asian pop. Whilst snapbacks have long been the staple, these quirky headpieces are strangely growing in popularity.
Here's what we spotted on while on bucket hat watch...
Chen, are you complaining about your stylist making you wear it?
No Chanyeol, that’s not what we meant when we said to wear a bucket hat.
Just in case you couldn’t tell them apart, they even personalized it with their names. Mm…maybe this will end up replacing the name bibs that artists usually wear during performance rehearsals.
Peekaboo Jungkook. Just because you can’t see me doesn’t mean I can’t see you.
No, but seriously once he puts on that hat, he starts rapping like he’s giving Rap Monster a run for his money. The hat has special powers...
Pairing a striped grey floppy bucket hat with a bright yellow-checkered dress? Why not? Says the Attack on Titan star, who mixes it up with some prints. She still keeps it girly with an outfit that’s perfect for the springtime season we’re in now.
Bora compliments her cute oversized T-shirt dress with a white one, which also works well as a sunhat to give off a summery theme. In contrast, Hyorin dons a black version, labeling herself as a ‘snob’?
Well, given she’s currently competing on the latest season of Unpretty Rapstar, it fits in well with the whole hip-hop style swag she got going on.
Now with the bucket hat, you can turn it upside down, put some ice in it and dump it over your head (voila! Ice bucket challenge complete)…but we wouldn’t recommend it. Or you could add some corks to it for a bit of an Aussie flair.
Throwback to Justin Timberlake rocking the matching blue bucket hat back in his N’Sync days. Haha!
