The North American leg of Beyoncé’s Renaissance World Tour kicks off this week in Toronto, which means that you should start thinking about what to wear. And if there’s one must-have accessory for the tour, it’s a sparkly cowboy hat, like the one Queen Bey wore to announce the tour back in February.
Bey’s stylist bought the disco cowboy hat from an Etsy shop, owned by Abby Misbin, last summer. Misbin’s shop, TrendingByAbby, has been slammed with orders ever since the hat made its tour poster debut.
“I had no clue whether it was gonna be used,” Misbin told The Cut in February. “I was thinking, ‘She’s gonna look at the hat and not like it.’ I was just refreshing my phone and hoping for the best. I didn’t see it when her album art got released. She’s wearing a cowboy hat, but not my cowboy hat, which was the biggest bummer. And then the tour poster came out, and she was wearing it.”
After the tour poster dropped, Misbin “replied to like 50 tweets” to get people to notice that Beyoncé was wearing her hat. And it worked.
“I sold out once one very popular Twitter account posted it,” Misbin said. “My friend messaged them about my shop, and they said, ‘That’s awesome, we love that it’s a small business, we’ll promote it right away.’ The tour poster dropped at 8 or 9 a.m., and by 11 a.m., I was sold out. Everyone wants to wear them to the tour.”
Misbin received around “75 orders” in the first day and had close to 500 people on the waiting list at the time of the interview. The hats are currently sold out, but according to a message on her Etsy shop, Misbin is determined to get them out to fans. “I’m committed to bringing each and every one [of] you lovely people a beautiful disco ball hat!”
Between Beyoncé and hit shows like Yellowstone, the cowboy aesthetic and coastal cowgirl aesthetic keeps getting hotter as the trends have racked up more than 140 million views on TikTok. Whether you’re heading to see Bey perform live, hitting up a musical festival, or another must-see tour (or all three, if you’re lucky), a cowboy hat will certainly come in handy.
To ensure that you’re ready for the Renaissance Tour, we rounded up a few mirrored cowboy hats from retail sites like Etsy and Amazon that are currently in stock — but with the tour officially hitting the states, they probably won’t be there long, so it’s good to buy sooner rather than later.
See more below.
It’s not the exact hat that Bey wore for her tour photo shoot, but it’s close to the original (and also available at Etsy). This mirrored cowboy hat features disco tiles that catch the light for added shine, and according to the reviews, the hat is “absolutely gorgeous,” and good quality.
Want more options from Etsy? This sparkly ball hat is on sale for $85 (regular $94.95), while this mirror ball hat (with rhinestone mask) is on sale for $74.61 (regular $82.90) and this lovely, sequin hat is on sale for $85.50 (regular $95.50).
This embellished disco ball hat is selling fast at Nasty Gal and it’s discounted, so it might not be in stock for long.
For cosplay and Beyoncé! If you’re looking for a budget-friendly option, this sequin cowboy hat from Amazon is recommended for parties and costumes, but it also makes a nice tour accessory.
Feeling flashy? The sequin cowboy hat pictured above lights up with the press of a button. The hat has three LED light settings (flashing, blinking and steady), plus it’s available at Amazon, in case you get down to the wire and need a hat delivered in a hurry. You can also shop metallic cowboy hats on Amazon and a decent selection of rhinestone cowboy hats.
How about a mirrorball hat with tassels? This design elevates the standard rhinestone cowboy hat and will definitely turn heads.
