The Spring Racing Carnival is well and truly upon us and we know just how hard it can be to find the perfect fascinator... So, to save you some time, we have hand-picked our favourite, simple fascinator styles to effortlessly pair with your favourite frock.
This look is incredibly simple but oh so elegant. Whether you decide on loose boho curls, a messy up-do, or sleek and straight, this accessory can easily be popped on top to transform any outfit to effortlessly angelic.
Whether your look is sultry or ultra-feminine, the veil is a timeless choice. For a simple option, wear the veil on its own or, to create more of statement, try a veil with additional accessories such as flowers, embroidery or jewels. If your look is more feminine, opt for either a flower or jewelled veil that stops just above the eyebrow line. Hot tip – try to find one on a headband, that way you don't have to worry about the fuss of pinning, simply sit it on top of your finished hairstyle.
If you're looking to transform a feminine dress into a contemporary look, this ultra-chic take on the tiara is the answer. Although, this accessory can be easily added to any hair style, it is definitely the perfect partner for dead straight hair.
A favourite of Jen Hawkins, the wide brimmed sun hat is an extremely elegant, timeless choice. Paired with a monochromatic outfit and loose curls, this is sure to make a statement on race day.
The Flower Crown:
Good news for all the boho lovers out there… the flower crown is totally acceptable at the races! In fact, pair it with a pixie cut, a loose up-do or braids and a light summer frock and you'll nail Spring Racing with this bohemian look. If you're feeling a little more adventurous, you can of course, opt for a bigger, more colourful flower crown that matches your favourite spring-inspired dress.
The spring racing carnival is an incredibly exciting time in terms of fashion, so push the boundaries, be daring and really have some fun with your selections, and remember as we always say...no outfit is complete without great hair! Enjoy xx
