Hailey Bieber’s towel bucket hat is a vacation staple
Over the past few seasons, bobs have become an unexpected staple for all fashion girls. They reappeared in 2019 as highly polarizing props that not everyone could keep up with (for some, the Gilligan Island the vibes were just too strong), but now the whimsical topper has turned out to be a versatile staple that works in almost any sartorial setting. Take the napkin bucket hat Hailey Bieber wore while vacationing in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, for example. Bieber used his yellow terrycloth hat from Zulu and Zephyr as a finishing touch to two of his very different holiday outfits this past weekend – both of which were documented in an Instagram carousel that she shared on July 19.
First up: Designer Bieber’s casual outfit by the pool with a strawberry knit cardigan not yet released from JW Anderson’s Resort 2022 collection. With her fruity sweater and bob, Bieber wore mustard-colored Nike Dunk sneakers, a raffia tote from Prada‘s beachwear line, and a colorful Ian Charms pearl necklace – all of which have since sold out, unfortunately. Her next look was a bit more loungewear-influenced and consisted of bright coral SKIMS shorts and t-shirt that she paired with orange Yeezy slides. Bieber accessorized her lounge look with geometric sunglasses from RayBan and, you guessed it, her trusty bucket.
So what’s the ultimate takeaway here? The bucket hat, despite its inherent energy in tourist dads, is a fashionable dark horse with unexpected versatility in styling. Much like Bieber wears her towel bob when she soaks up the sun, Bella Hadid uses Memorial Day’s viral crochet caps as the ultimate beach accessory. Meanwhile, always at the forefront of experimental trends, Rihanna wears her fluffy bob for a date in New York City, proving that the adaptable accessory can work as part of a nighttime look, too.
Along with the TRIANGL bikinis that she can’t help but wear, Bieber’s textured cap has clearly become a vacation staple that has gained a permanent place in her suitcase. And if you’re also looking for a versatile accessory to slip into on your next getaway, well, there’s good news and bad: Bieber’s hat in its marigold colourway is no longer available but – and now here is the good news! – Zulu and Zephyr offer the cord hat in olive, off white and dark brown. Or, you can go for another bob that’s Bieber-endorsed as well, like Jacquemus’ soft-edged green option that she recently wore in Las Vegas. Scroll forward to start shopping for hats.
