Fascinators are a lot like jewellery.
The styles & designs are endless. While the materials – sinamay, crin, feathers & flowers – remain the same, the way in which they can be put together is limitless.
Your own personal style will dictate the type of fascinator you choose. For me, I like the large, really-get-you-noticed styles. Mind you, I have short hair & can’t actually wear them, but if I had the hair to support a fascinator, I’d go big.
Luscious Lilac (pictured above) is an example of a very feminine, feathery design. With a sequined flower nestled among small, soft feathers, this design will suit the young & the young at heart.
Diamante Dream is an example of the get-you-noticed style that I prefer. A blue & pink diamante flower sparkles in the centre of a black feather flower, accentuated with stand-out hot pink & black feathers. For the slightly more adventurous lady, this fascinator is stylish enough to be noticed in the crowd.
If you were to ask me how to choose a fascinator, I’d give very much the same advice as I have done for jewellery…. if you really love it, go with it. Try it on. See how it looks. How does it make you feel?
And most of all – have fun!
