3 Reasons to Get a Sombrero
August 29, 2019
Hats are always considered to be one of the best representations of someone’s culture. Almost every culture out there has a hat or headgear that is specific to them and they wear it with pride. If you are Mexican, have roots in Mexico or just appreciate Mexican culture then getting a sombrero might be for you. Of course, some people will think about the whole cultural appropriation thing, as long as you don’t wear a poncho and some fake mustaches on Cinco de Mayo then it’s all good. Here are 3 reasons to get a sombrero:
You Are Mexican
Embrace your culture and heritage by wearing a sombrero. They look cool and make you proud of who you are, and you can wear them to any Mexican festival or day of celebration. Donning a sombrero will make your parents/grandparents so proud; they won’t stop talking about it.
They Come in a Variety of Colors
Sombreros come in a wide variety of colors, designs, patterns and sizes for people of all ages and tastes. There is a sombrero for almost every occasion whether a wedding, Cinco de Mayo, quinceaneras and even funerals. There is a sombrero for everyone and if you shop for sombreros, you will definitely find one that suits your tastes.
To Appreciate Mexican Culture
If you are not Mexican and feel uneasy about wearing Mexican attire then you can still get a sombrero and put it on display with any other items that represent different cultures. Wearing something of somebody else’s culture, with the right intention and at the right time or place, does not make it offensive. Alternately, you can wear it on holiday in Mexico where the people appreciate foreigners buying their items and appreciating their culture.
