Women's western hats, commonly referred to as cowboy hats help define the Old American West, as cattle herders and cowboys made this fashion accessory popular. Today, women's cowboy hats have circled the Globe. We've seen these wide brim cowboy hats from the South and Western United States, to parts of Canada and Northern Mexico.
Ladies, don't be fooled by the historically male trend. A variety of women's western hats have graced the beaches of Hawaii to trendy European bistros on celebrities including Britney Spears, Brooke Shields and Jessica Simpson. Nearly all western style hats are identical for men and women, making it even easier to find the look that's right for you.
Back when they originated, western cowboy hats' primary function was not so much for their style but rather worn for rain and sun protection, to signal others from afar, and even pull water from a nearby stream. No matter what your purpose or whether you prefer a straw cowboy hat or one made of canvas, our collection of women's western hats has it all.
