Fashion Facts about cowboy hats

No matter what your style is, there’s a cowboy hat out there for you. And yes, even if you’re not from Texas (or anywhere near it), you can still rock the look. Here are a few things to keep in mind when choosing the right cowboy hat:

  • Cowboy hats are traditionally made from fur felt. If you’re looking for a more affordable option, straw is a good choice.
  • The shape of your cowboy hat should complement the shape of your face. If you have a round face, go for a hat with a wide brim.
  • When it comes to color, there are no hard and fast rules. However, if you want to stay true to the traditional cowboy look, go for a natural hue like brown or black. For something a little more flashy, try one in bright colors like white or even neon pink.
  • You’ll notice that most cowboys don’t wear their hats indoors. When wearing yours inside, take care to loosen the band so that it doesn’t squeeze your head too tight.
  • Cowboy hats are often worn with suits by country singers on stage and actors playing cowboys on TV. It doesn’t take much effort to make this happen–simply buy a western suit jacket and attach an authentic cowboy hat to complete the outfit! (I don’t rock my cowboy hats that way, but you might try the traditional route first 🙂

Reasons not to wear a cowboy hat

Yes, cowboy hats are undeniably stylish. But before you go out and buy one, there are a few things you should consider. For starters, cowboy hats can be really expensive. Plus, they’re not always the most practical choice – they can be hot to wear in the summer and they’ll make you stand out in a crowd (which may or may not be a good thing, unless you are an influencer like myself). And finally, you need to have the confidence to rock a cowboy hat.

Tips for wearing cowboy hats in an unexpected way

Cowboy hats are no longer just for ranch hands and country boys. In recent years, they’ve become a popular fashion accessory for men of all styles. But can you really pull off wearing a cowboy hat? Here are some tips to make sure you’re making the right choice:

  1. Know your face shape: If you have an oval-shaped face, then the size of the hat is up to your personal preference. For guys with rounder faces, it’s best to stick with a shorter brimmed cowboy hat (because large brims can make round faces look even wider).
  2. Consider your style: More casual or sporty outfits work well with straw or felt cowboy hats. Dressier outfits will go better with beaver fur or sheepskin cowboys hats.
  3. Avoid the tourist cliché: If you want to wear a cowboy hat but don’t want to risk looking like everyone else in the crowds, choose one that is made from unique materials such as buffalo hide or deer antler.
  4. Own it: When wearing any type of hat, whether a cowboy hat or not, it’s important that you carry yourself with confidence in order to not appear nervous when people stare at you, cause they will!

How to shop for your first cowboy hat

The great thing about cowboy hats is that they come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. So, no matter what your personal style is, there’s definitely a cowboy hat out there for you. But with so many options to choose from, shopping for your first cowboy hat can be a bit overwhelming. Here are a few tips to help you find the perfect cowboy hat:

  1. If you’re worried about looking too flashy or silly, start small by choosing a smaller brimmed felt hat or straw cowboy hat instead of a wide-brimmed cowboy hat made of leather.
  2. Keep in mind that most men wear their cowboy hats tipped back on their heads (instead of tipped down).
  3. If you’re going to wear your cowboy hat often, it might be worth investing in one made of leather as opposed to the fabric which will require more upkeep.

How to take care of your new-found treasure

So you’ve taken the plunge and bought yourself a cowboy hat. Congratulations! But now that you’ve got it, how do you take care of it? Here are a few tips on taking care of your new-found treasure:

  1. Never touch the outside with your hands. The oils on your skin will tarnish the fibers.
  2. Store in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight or artificial light sources.
  3. Protect from dust by brushing off any debris before storing.
  4. Brush off any debris after wearing to prevent dirt buildup and stains.
  5. Remove as much dust as possible by using a soft brush before placing it in storage for extended periods of time to avoid rusting metal parts such as metal buttons, snaps, and rivets.
