Bucket Hat Outfit Ideas For Men (Visual Guide)

Bucket hats are underrated fashion accessories that not only protect you from the sun but also keep you looking stylish at the same time. Here are the best bucket hat outfit ideas for men.

All-white bucket hat outfit

Do you have a white bucket hat? If so, then the simplest thing you can do is to style it with an all-white outfit. It’s so simple yet versatile and works every single time.

You don’t necessarily have to go full-on white with this look, since you can wear a white top with another color on the bottom, so long as the color complements the white well.

For example, you can wear a white bucket hat with a white shirt and khaki pants.

When going for this look, it’s best to avoid bold, dark colors. The goal here is to remain subtle and let the white color take center stage, offering a pristine yet calming aura.

All-black bucket hat outfit

Every yin has a yang. Every positive has a negative. And while you could go for an all-white bucket hat outfit, you could also wear an all-black bucket hat outfit. 

You might be thinking, “Why would I want to wear all-black clothing?”

It’s because all-black clothing gives off a more slimming appearance, which allows for smarter outfits without worrying about adding extra pounds. It’s effortless.

An all-black clothing and different-colored footwear can be a great look, however, if you’re going for that slightly villainous, all-black bucket hat outfit, you’ll want the footwear to also be black.

Or, as you can see in the picture above, go for a white pair of sneakers. It complements the all-black looks especially if you’re wearing a black bucket hat.

Tropical island bucket hat outfit

This outfit is a fun one. When summer comes around, wear your favorite “beach-ready tropical island” clothes and top it off with any colored bucket hat.

There are literally so many combinations you could pull off with this one, especially if your bucket hat is neutral-colored like white, black, navy blue, or even olive green.

I personally like to keep things simple with solid-colored outfits, but you could mix and match them with patterned Hawaiian shirts, so long as your bucket hat has no patterns.

If you choose to wear a patterned bucket hat, one with a camo pattern for example, I’d recommend wearing something simple like a white or black tee shirt so nothing clashes.

Once you’ve got the top covered, you can complete the look with your favorite beach shorts and flip-flops. Or, you could substitute the footwear with boat shoes too.

Korean men’s bucket hat outfit

If you have a skinny frame, you could go for the “Korean men’s bucket hat outfit” look.

Taking inspiration from the classic Brits and fuss-free Scandinavians, Korean men usually go for colors that are monochromatic. In other words, wearing an outfit that consists of one color. 

Based on three-piece looks, black slim-fit trousers, a long-sleeve plain tee and a cotton topcoat (trench or work jacket) lay the foundation for minimalism.

The most effortless way to style a bucket hat is to wear an oversized tee shirt with denim or trousers. You could tuck in the tee shirt, or leave it untucked.

That’s it. It’s as simple as it gets.

Suit bucket hat outfit

Contrary to popular belief, a bucket hat can add an interesting twist to a classic suit. Keep the outfit sleek by pairing it with dress shoes, or make it more casual by wearing sneakers instead. 

For this look, I would avoid bright and striking bucket hat colors like yellow and neon green. Instead, I’d opt for neutral colors such as black, white, navy blue, and olive green.

Whether you wear a suit or an overcoat, make sure the bucket hat doesn’t clash with the overall color scheme of your formal style. Wear a pair of sunglasses to add to your confidence.

Colorful bucket hat outfit

So far, I’ve been telling you to keep things simple and maintain a monochromatic look. This time, I want you to take all of the above suggestions and go crazy with them.

And by crazy, I mean colorful. Your only limit is your imagination,

For example, try a tie-dye bucket hat with a monochrome outfit, such as all black or white. The rainbow shades easily brighten up your outfits, no matter what season it is.

Alternatively, you could add a bit of fire to your regular wardrobe choices with a red bucket hat. If you want something to brighten your day, you could choose to wear a yellow bucket hat.

The limit is endless. You could literally go for any color. Just use common sense and don’t go too crazy on the color combinations, otherwise, you’ll be like a wild splatter of paint.
