What started part of normal dress attire for weddings in the UK, has now become an international trend. Ever since Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding, fascinators have become a sought-after, trendy accessory worldwide. The fascinators were out in rare form for the Royal Wedding. Kate Middleton is often seen wearing a fascinator as is Sarah Jessica Parker. Philip Treacy is the man behind almost every famous fascinator that you see today. This amazing milliner has done amazing things with so many fun things that Marie Antoinette would surely be proud as well as keep him all to herself so we should be glad!
In a wedding ceremony I was invited a few months ago, I chose a black jumpsuit (in fact it looked more like a dress because of the wide-cut pants) and I matched it with a fascinator because why not. You’ll never know where you will have another chance to wear a fascinator or hat, whatever you wanna call it. In my opinion, these type of accesories are suitable in the a.m-s. Evening ceremonies require another type of so called classic outfit. But is a fascinator (or hat) necessary for a wedding?
I think that wearing a fascinator to a wedding is always appropriate, unless the bride has specifically mentioned not to in the dress code. Fascinators can add color and personality to your outfit, and help pull together a look. Only wear a fascinator if you feel comfortable doing so, and enjoy the experience!
