Saddle Up For The End of Summer With A Straw Hat!

only about a month of summer left, many people are flocking to the nearest
beach or to a great concert with their friends in order to soak up as
much  sun as possible.  The summer is always a great time to catch up
with your friends at a beautiful outdoor venue and enjoy some of your favorite
tunes.  Many of  music’s
biggest and brightest stars are touring across the country this year including Keith Urban, Jack Johnson, Tim McGraw, Dave Matthews Band, Lady Antebellum, Tom Petty, Justin Beiber, Lady Gaga and many others. 

traditional cowboy hats are the norm among many of country music’s biggest
names, many
concert goers rock out in straw hats to set off
their summer look.  While
country music fans love to get decked out in full country gear – from their
straw hats all the way dow
n to their cowboy boots, others have been taking a cue from celebrity style opting for the more chill, casual straw fedora for their
tailgating and concert look.  Ashlee Simpson (above) wears a straw fedora and illustrates straw hats aren't just for country music artists any longer.  

gearing up for the beach with a sun hat or catching a concert in a straw hat, be sure to
visit your local LIDS retail store or online at to grab all your straw hats.  As always, stay up to date on all the current
hat happenings and releases by checking in daily with the LIDS Blog.
