Rad Or Bad: Should Cowboy Hats Off The Ranch Be Welcomed Or Outlawed?

When we think of the Wild West, we conjure up images of My Darling Clementine, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and The Outlaw Josey Wales. And with so many great Westerns to love, it’s no wonder the fashion world has such a sweet spot for the days of dueling showdowns.
Thanks to runway collections like Moschino and Kinder Aggugini, frontier chic is back with a bang, and with it, the cowboy hat. In fresh, bold colors and modern shapes, the updated styles of the cowboy hat might just take you to new frontiers, next season. But, when you're not on an actual ranch, are cowboy hats just overkill? To the comments, with your thoughts.
