Fascinated about fascinators? From weddings to the races, discover how you should be wearing this oh-so-elegant hair accessory…
Fascinators. Ok, we admit it’s not the easiest hair accessory to know how to pull off, but once you learn our styling tricks you’ll be ahead of the style game. Literally.
Take a look at how our favourite celebs are wearing this statement headwear and find out how to wear a fascinator…. whatever the occasion!
How to Wear a Fascinator… at a Wedding
Weddings and fascinators? It’s the perfect coupling – other than the bride and groom, of course! For those new to this stylish headwear, take a page out of Kitty Spencer’s book and wear one the same colour as as your dress. It’s an easy way to try out the trend without the fear of looking too much. However if you’re in already in the fascinator fanclub, another leaf out of Kitty’s Royal Wedding-worthy style and perch a feathery number on top of your head!
How to Wear a Fascinator… at the Races
If you’re looking to have a fascinator in only one colour – make it white. We all know that it’s a major no-no to wear white at a wedding, but at the races? Hey, it’s fair game! Kate Middleton is known for her impressive fascinator collection and her white Royal Ascot pick lives up to (royal) expectations. Opting for a sculptural headpiece is a great way to standout in the race-day crowds and add a little personality to your look. Make sure your hair doesn’t become victim to the British weather and get wrapped around a bolder design and wear a simple up-do a la Kate.
How to Wear a Fascinator… in the Evening
Famous for looking polished and put-together, it’s no surprise that Victoria Beckham has a chic hair accessory (or two!) in her occasion wardrobe. Black is usually a go-to for after-dark, but fascinators in this colour can have unfortunate undertones… Instead keep things a touch lighter with headpieces in elegant navy blues. For a touch of high-drama, Victoria’s netted fascinator is the perfect choice.
