The Influencers

Social media probably wouldn’t be alive without the ever-so-famous influencers. Whether it be for work or for hobby, these digital heroes invest time to produce original content to inspire others. Given all that, they’re probably heavily concerned about the sitch, but lost? Probably not so much. After the initial breakdown, they’ve hopefully gotten it all back together and started re-organizing their social media calendars and trying out other trends to share when things go back to normal. 


The Luddites

Because social media has become a necessity in this age, millions of people have come to participate in it, some of them more reluctant than others — the luddites. They’re here, they have accounts, but hardly interact with anyone or anything. Close friends are the only ones who can probably reach them through chat. These guys aren’t lost at all. They probably don’t care — or worse, don’t even know about it.


The Lurkers

They’re always online yet you never hear from them. The lurkers are the online ninjas, they know and see everything from the shadows. Having no feed to scroll through can be a bit of a problem for them, but lurkers always find ways. Luckily, there are still other apps like Twitter and Reddit where they can still get the latest news and memes.




The Locals

Ah, yes, who would forget the digital locals. These netizens basically live online, spending hours and hours on end just scrolling through their feed. They’re different from the influencers, in that they don’t necessarily create content for sharing. But they’re usually the ones who talk about the latest news first. You can easily feel their presence online, as most posts on your feed are probably shared by them. With the two main sites down, they’re the most devastated and lost. It’s like they were suddenly shipped to pre-historic times.

How do you wear a bucket hat? Well, the simplest answer would be to put it on top of your head. But kidding aside, we all know that styling a hat is more nuanced than that. It's an accessory that can drastically affect your overall look, so it's always a good practice to carefully consider how you'll incorporate it into your ensemble. Ahead, our top tips on how to style this beloved '90s accessory in 2019.


Pick an outfit with the same colour scheme



You can't go wrong with matching your bucket hat with one article of clothing that you'll be wearing. Just a caution, this usually only works for solid colours. Going print on print may look too overwhelming. If you really want to rock a maximalist look, we suggest you match your printed bucket hat with your bottom piece rather than your top. This will give a nice visual break and balance out everything.


Go glossy



Still deciding on what type of bucket hat to get? Experiment a little on the texture and go for a structured, glossy style. This simple but eye-catching design will help elevate any outfit in a jiffy. Whether you're going for a comfy ensemble or a glam look, putting on this piece will make it more interesting especially if you love wearing all-black outfits.


Make it monochrome



This one is a little challenging to pull off but it can be done with the right pieces. Just remember to stick to two colours that have the same tone. For example, creams and greys are neutral tones, which makes them a good pair for when you're doing a monochrome look. If you want a more colourful palette, you can opt for pastels like lavender and violets. Make sure that your bucket hat falls within your chosen palette for a fool-proof monochrome look. 


Keep it sleek yet trendy



It's a given that wearing a bucket hat will instantly make your look more casual and fitting for street style. But if that's not your jam, you can also keep it sleek yet still trendy by choosing a neutral-toned hat and pairing it with an outfit that features trendy items with a structured silhouette like a well-fitted top with off-shoulder details or stripes print.



Look for classy prints



Remember how your fave '90s celebrities rocked bucket hats with wild prints? If you do, you'll remember how goofy they looked. Instead of going for a tie-dye design, pick classy prints like plaid or gingham. These versatile pieces have that sophisticated touch and will seamlessly match most of the pieces in your wardrobe.
