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.
Make it monochrome
Keep it sleek yet trendy
Look for classy prints
This March, we're all about achieving that Insta-worthy look — with or without a filter. Getting that glow up is actually easier than you might think. The important thing to do is to get started. Find the style that works best for you, learn that beauty look you've been wanting to try, get that long-overdue haircut and see a vast improvement. But it's really not just about aesthetics; taking care of your health and making good lifestyle choices are also an essential part of the makeover. As for us, we already have our product picks to help us kickstart our journey to Insta-worthy. Keep reading to know why we're adding these items to our collection.
"If you know me in person, you'd know that I almost always wear black (the exemption would be when I'm in white or grey). But since hotter days are coming, I think it's time to bust out a once-in-a-blue-moon bright outfit. I'm eyeing this orange combo from Pomelo's Under the Tuscan Sun collection because it's vibrant and just screams summer."

"If you’re like me and suffer from dull and faded hair thanks to an obsession with colouring and bleaching, infuse My colour shampoos are going to be your new best friend. With a range that works on bright copper to icy silver, these vegan, silicone, paraben and sulfate-free products are going to keep your hair glossy and beautiful until your next salon visit."
"I love Drunk Elephant, their products really work wonders. I have a few acne scars on my face that I want to get rid of, and also, I have been told that I have very dull skin due to my irregular sleeping hours and the amount of junk food I eat all the time. The Drunk Elephant C-Firma Day Serum is known to help dissolve dead surface skin cells and replenish lipids and visibly reduce the appearance of dark spots and wrinkles. I can't wait to include this product in my skincare routine to help with my dull skin!"
"I am such a sucker for beautiful Instagrammable packaging and cats, so when beauty brand Paul & Joe's Pearl Lipstick landed on my radar, I knew I'd have to get my hands on it eventually. Recently, I've been veering away from matte lipsticks and moving towards dewier, more hydrating ones especially for the summer, and the Pearl Lipstick hits all the right points: a glossy finish, a powder blue casing fit for Marie Antoinette's dressing table and let's not forget that cat-shaped bullet. Ç'est très mignon!"

"I'm the type of gal who carries all the essentials with her wherever she goes. You'll find everything one might need in my bag — from gadgets to an insulated water bottle. But my shoulder bags usually don't have the space for all of that, and on the off chance that they do, they become really heavy and affect my posture negatively. That's why I've been eyeing Lipault Paris’s new Business Avenue Backpack in garnet red. The medium-sized version has tons of pockets and space where I can easily store my stuff and get it when I need it. Its leather finish speaks sophistication, yet its vivid colour can still add a pop to my OOTDs and make them look more Insta-worthy."
