Cowboy hats are probably among the most divisive pieces of clothing. Some people love wearing them, but others don’t. Thankfully, there are things you can do to make sure your hat will look good on you.

Here’s how you should wear a cowboy hat:

Choose a hat that fits well

You don’t want your cowboy hat to look weird on your head. The hat must fit well and must cover enough space on your head without interfering with your vision. No matter how and what you will be using the hat for, it must look good on you. If you are looking for high-quality straw cowboy hats for a party or any other purpose, always remember this.

Pair it with the right outfit

Sometimes, cowboy hats work mainly because they work well with the rest of your outfit. When wearing cowboy hats, you must exhibit a sense of ruggedness. Plaid shirts, torn jeans, and boots usually work best with cowboy hats. This will bring out the inner country boy or girl in you.

Angle the brim accordingly

How you angle your brim matters. If you want to look casual, tilt it in the front of your head a bit slightly. For a more serious look, tip it just above your eyebrows.

Remove the hat at the right time

There is a certain etiquette required in wearing these hats, too. You must remove it when singing the National Anthem or when you are greeting someone as a sign of respect and courtesy.

Sure, cowboy hats are not going to be everyone’s cup of tea, so you may as well maximize how great you can look. These tips will help you achieve the look you want.
