When I found myself searching for a wide-brim hat this fall, it wasn't the influx of western-themed campaigns, runway shows and Fashion Month street style shots that inspired me — it was my dad. 

My dad almost never leaves the house without his Stetson. Each cowboy hat in his collection hangs on his wall in a proud display — he even walked me down the isle at my wedding in one (complete with bolo tie). 

This Amish-style hat, a different version than my dad's cowboy style, fits my need for a dose of western flair. I plan to wear it instead of carrying an umbrella on days when there is a light rain or snow and the best part is how it will make me feel like a character in "True Grit" — specifically, Hailee Steinfeld as Mattie Ross
