Another early '90s trend we can't get enough of these days? Bucket hats. There are millions (we're just estimating) of ways to style this fun accessory whether you're dressing up, down or just covering up your dirty hair pre-wash day. If you're wondering how to style this beloved cap, we've got you covered.

If you're going for a casual day look, we recommend pairing a fun option with a more muted outfit. Go for a pop of color with a white sun dress or a pair of jeans and basic crop top. Baggy jeans or oversized denim jackets are complementary '90s trends that pair great with the adorable bucket hat. But if you're looking to dress up a bit, opt for a monochromatic look and maybe even splurge on a designer hat to elevate the look.

Here, 17 bucket hats to consider adding to your shopping cart to complete your cutest summer OOTDs.
