Choosing the right fascinator for the races means picking one that complements, rather than competes with your outfit. You want to pinpoint a fascinator that provides the perfect balance for your dress while giving you a stunning finishing touch. Here are key aspects to consider as you narrow down your choices to find the fascinator that's calling your name.Fashion
Size and Shape
Look for a fascinator that balances out the silhouette of your outfit with a complementary size and shape. A wide, full skirt would mesh well with a larger, round fascinator, while a sleek, body-hugging dress would align better with a fascinator sporting a taller design.
Look for a fascinator that continues the shape of the dress. A dress with severe angles would do well with a fascinator with an equally dramatic shape. A dress with soft, rounder curves, on the other hand, would align well with a round fascinator.
Colour and Pattern
The colour of your fascinator should align with the colours in your dress, either matching the overall colour scheme or highlighting a single, stand-out hue. You can also pick a single aspect of your dress’s pattern, such as a rose from a floral pattern, to use as the starting point for selecting your fascinator.
Add-ons and Details
While you want your overall look to make a statement, you don’t want it to be a statement that overwhelms the senses. The details and complexity of your outfit plays a role in how busy or complex your fascinator needs to be.
A busy outfit that features loads of eye-catching details typically does better with a straightforward, rather simple fascinator that pulls the look together with sophisticated polish. A simpler outfit may welcome a more detailed fascinator, such as one sporting various textures, colours or a collection of multi-coloured butterflies.
While these tips can serve as a guide for choosing the right fascinator for spring racing season, you’re certainly welcome to break the so-called rules if you fall in love with a hat you simply have to have. In addition to looking fabulous, fascinators are designed to bring on plenty of smiles and fun.
