When a spring and summer style drops that doubles as a solution to keep our skin healthy and burn-free, we’re eager to embrace it. Even better? When that trend is super accessible (read: affordable) and worn by some of our favorite fashion icons. That style, of course, is the oversized hat that also protects your scalp and face from the sun, and right now, the functional and fashionable look is leaning into the wild, wild West. 

With footwear like cowboy boots, spotted on celebs like Emily Ratajkowski, picking up in popularity again, it’s no surprise that another form of the Western trend has us turning our heads: the cowboy hat.

And this is one celebrity trend that you don’t need to spend a lot to emulate. We found 10 large summer hat styles — including a number of Western-inspired options — giving off big hat energy at Target, and prices start at just $10.
