Bucket hats are *the* best fashion accessories for the summer. Sun-smart and stylish, these headwear pieces have earned their rightful place in Aussies’ wardrobes. But what's better than a bucket hat? One that has a unisex design or one that’s reversible, of course! 

At FORD MILLINERY, we always, always encourage you to #WearWhatYouLove. So we don’t want you to feel limited by gendered designs. Whether you’re looking for bucket hats for men or bucket hats for women, we have both and more. 

On top of that, we also agree that variety is the spice of life! And, to be honest, there’s nothing quite like getting the value of two things for the price of one, right? 

In this blog post, we're going to explore some of the best unisex and reversible bucket hats available in Australia.

1. For stylish adventurers: Bobby

Crafted with lightweight but durable materials and a stitched brim, it’s the perfect companion for your outdoor escapades. Depending on the style you choose, the reversible feature allows you to switch between a classic colour and a flouro or a combination of two fluoro colours.

2. For beach lovers: Billy

Heading to the beach or pool? This is just what you need for stylish sun protection. They’re made with 100% cotton to keep you cool. This reversible men’s and women’s bucket hat offers two styles in one, making it perfect for mixing and matching with your swimwear. Whether you prefer a solid color or a fun print, you can switch it up to match your mood. The printed styles are also great for instantly stylising a casual outfit — the easiest fix to look more put-together.

3. For urban explorers: Palm

For those who love the city life as much as they love the great outdoors, the Palm bucket hat is a must-have. It features a unisex design that pairs well with any outfit. The style also allows you to match it with your outfits for city strolls. Thinking of living the city life in another city perhaps? This is perfect for an elevated resort look for luxury holidays too — think Maldives, Santorini and Como.

4. For road trip enthusiasts: Bubble O’Bill

Get ready for the road with Bubble O’Bill! This cotton corduroy reversible bucket hat for men and women is the perfect combination of form and function. It has a tilted brim that frames the face nicely while keeping you sun-safe. This is the perfect choice for children-at-heart who love spending time outdoors — whether that’s surfing or exploring new cafes — and just love to express themselves with style! P.S. Did you know that this is named after an Australian kids ice cream in the ‘80s? 

On top of sun protection, style and versatility, these bucket hats are also super convenient to carry. All of these can be rolled and placed quickly in your bag or pocket if you don’t need to wear them. Whether you're exploring the outback, lounging on the beach, or strolling through the city, there's a bucket hat to match your style. 

You can wash these too! So you don’t need to worry about sweat or sunscreen buildup (blech). They’re also great if you’re particular about keeping fine lines and dark spots from sun rays at bay. Bucket hats protect your entire face (sorry, baseball caps, you just can’t). So they’re perfect for not just anti-aging but also making sure skin cancer won’t be in the picture for you. 

You don’t need to choose between fashion and function with these fantastic options. Stay sun-smart and stay stylish with FORD MILLINERY bucket hats!
