The Best Summer Cowboy Hats

Summer is a time for barbecues, rodeos, camping, fishing, and outdoor activities in general. But while you are spending all day out in the blistering summer sun, you want to be protected. No one wants to end their day with a painful, bright red head and neck. Luckily, cowboy hats can keep the sun’s rays at bay while also helping you look good.

Our Picks for 2019 Summer Cowboy Hats

The best cowboy hat for summer should be lightweight, cool, and shield you from the sun. Straw cowboy hats have become a staple in the hot summer months for this reason, but they are certainly not your only choice. At Sheplers Western Wear, we have pulled out a few of our favorite summer cowboy hat options in various styles.

  1. Stetson straw hats are a great choice for the hot summer months. Stetson is a high-quality and popular brand for cowboy hats and their straw options are no exception. Their collection is simple and stylish with a lot of light-colored hats so they can be worn for almost any occasion.
  1. Cowboy hats by Jason Aldean are another good choice for the summer months. Aldean’s hats tend to have a bit of a more rustic look than Stetson, with styles falling mostly into the brown and black color range. His hats look great with a traditional pair of men’s cowboy boots and a sturdy pair of blue jeans.
  1. The summer sun can be killer. If you are consistently outside for long hours, then a hat designed specifically for UV protection is a great option for you. Our selection includes hats of varying styles and colors so you should be able to find something you like easily.
  1. Palm leaf cowboy hats are similar to straw hats. They are lightweight and breathable so that your head can stay cool in the heat. This style has a bit more of a fun design than your traditional brown straw hats.

  2. Just to mix things up, we are adding baseball caps to this list. While this is not your traditional summer cowboy hat, baseball caps are a great alternative when you do not want such a wide brim, but you are still looking for a bit of sun protection. They are stylish too. You can show off your favorite brands for a night out or throw one on when you are having a bad hair day.

No matter the time of year, a cowboy hat can be the perfect addition to your western style clothing. Shop our extensive selection to find your perfect hat for every occasion.

Style Inspiration—Blake Shelton

You can’t talk about country music nowadays without referencing Mr. Blake Shelton.

Western Wear Shirt

Western wear shirts are a default in Mr. Shelton’s wardrobe. His seems to prefer neutral colors, or a classic plaid western shirt with rolled sleeves. His simple style of shirts makes his wardrobe perfect for everything from the everyday routine of running errands to a walk on the red carpet. If you want to copy Blake Shelton’s style, start by loading up on these basic button-down shirts.

Jacket

Blake Shelton’s jacket is often what differentiates his outfit from formal to casual. On any regular day, you may find him walking around town in a classic men’s leather jacket on top of one of his many western wear shirts. For more formal occasions like award shows, he will top off his western shirt with a plain, and once again, neutral-colored suit jacket. The jacket is probably unbuttoned, and he may or may not sport a tie. If your closet is currently missing these essentials, a nice black suit jacket is a good start.

Jeans

Like many country icons, Black Shelton is almost always in a good pair of sturdy jeans. Even on the red carpet, Blake Shelton is not afraid to throw on a pair of jeans. Together his suit jacket and jeans complete his classy, but not too formal look. Check out our Wrangler jeans to find a style that will look good and last.

Complete the Look

At our cowboy boot store, we have an expansive selection so that you are sure to find a pair you will love.

Cowgirl Hat Style Guide for Women

Summer is quickly approaching, and you need a new cowgirl hat for those upcoming country music festivals. We have you covered! Sheplers offers a wide variety of cowgirl hats of all colors, materials, shapes and sizes. You are sure to find the perfect hat for your style and taste. If you aren’t sure what you are looking for, check out our cowgirl hat style guide for women’s western wear.

Cowgirl hats are easy to recognize because they have wide flat brims and high crowns. Each hat has its own unique hatband for practical or fashion reasons. They were invented by John B. Stetson in 1865. Today they come in a variety of styles, colors and materials to match your cowgirl personality.

Leather Cowgirl Hats

Bullhide Get on Top Grain Leather Cowgirl Hat

The traditional cowgirl hat material was leather. As technology and innovations in fashion have improved, many hats have transitioned to felt or straw, but leather is still in use today. Leather cowgirl hats are a fashion statement for sure, but they are also heavy and have no ventilation, so if you are wearing your leather hat on a hot summers day, you should prepare for your head to sweat!

Felt Cowgirl Hats

Bullhide Jewel of the West Wool Cowgirl Hat

The most common of cowgirl hat materials is felt. It offers a little bit of ventilation for your head unlike its leather counterpart. A felt cowgirl hat protects against harmful UV rays on a bright sunny day. Your head may still get a little sweaty, but at least it won’t be sunburned!

Straw Cowgirl Hats

Shyanne Women's Beaded Straw Cowgirl Hat

Straw cowgirl hats are a breathable alternative to felt and leather cowgirl hats. Straw cowgirl hats are made by weaving loose straw strips together and coating them with lacquer to keep their shape. These hats will allow your head to breathe but they don’t offer much protection against the sun. Be prepared with sunscreen if you are out in the middle of the day.
