No hat gives off a laid back beachy vibe like the bucket hat. It is comfortable, and also practical for blocking the sun. Doctors sometimes will prescribe to people who are outside often to wear one to prevent skin cancer on the back of the neck. However, there are few social settings when it is acceptable to wear one. Other than on the beach, pool deck, or the golf course you would be hard pressed to find a situation to wear a bucket hat and not look out of place, though it is a bold move since it isn’t the most flattering hat and doesn’t have much style.
