Wanted: Fashionably Guilty Straw Cowboy Hats

Say Howdy to Summer Wearing a Stylish Straw Cowboy Hat

Once upon a time straw cowboy hats were reserved for the bronco busters, steer wranglers, cattle herders, ranchers, gauchos, drivers, and all around frontiersmen that tackled life on  unsettled lands. Nowadays those hard working women and men are joined by country loving urbanites from coast to coast in an effort to embrace the Western lifestyle. Although it’s nearly impossible for everyone to truly know the cowboy way of life, it’s a true compliment that cowboy hats are trending on the front row at fashion shows and the red carpet. 

In a unifying effort to embrace tradition and what John Travolta romanticized in his 1980 movie, Urban Cowboy, cowboy hats are becoming the perfect accessory to gussy yourself up in a practical yet stylish manner. Add a little Western flair to your wardrobe by wearing a lightweight, durable, and iconic straw cowboy hat this summer. You’ll adore the easy to wear, sun protective headgear and how it makes you feel whether or not you consider yourself a real cowgirl or cowboy.
