From high fashion runways to festival crowds, the cowboy hat has been spotted everywhere this summer, proving to be this season's hottest accessory - and we're not mad at it.

What started as a Y2K trend (along with micro-mini skirts, and butterfly tops) has come back with a vengeance, and is the perfect summer 2022 headgear. It's an It-girl favourite, and we've seen it on the likes of Vanessa Hudgens, Kendall Jenner, Miley Cyrus, amongst many many others.
