17 Cool Bucket Hats For When You Can't Settle the Side Part/Middle Part Debate

So there's a lot to unpack here... First of all, Hailey Bieber's wearing of a bucket hat this week proves that they are, in fact, still cool (in case you had any doubts). Also, unless you've been living under a rock, you've heard all about the Millennial side part vs. Gen Z middle part debate, but if not, here's a rundown. (Hailey Bieber, for the record, is technically a Millennial by just a few months.)

Now a little about me: I'm a full-blown Millennial who doesn't look great with my hair parted down the middle but I suddenly feel self-conscious about my usual side part, so maybe a hat is the best way to avoid the controversy until it inevitably passes. (But also, you do you and wear your hair however you want.) Either way, I do love a cute bucket hat. Bieber's Adidas x Ivy Park hat is unfortunately sold out, but there are so many good ones on the market right now to choose from and I chose TK of my favorites for you, starting at just $15. Scroll to shop them with me.
