A fascinator is a women’s head decoration that isn’t quite a hat. It may include feathers, jewels or a small veil – it’s closer to a piece of jewellery than to any functional covering. And it may substitute for a hat in situations where heads are meant to be covered: In the Royal Enclosure at Ascot, for example, women must wear hats or “substantial” fascinators. The essential difference between women’s and men’s headpieces generally is this: Men take theirs off whenever they are inside, women do not.
In honour of the Royal Wedding today here are some pictures of headbands from S.O.S, and some pretty fascinators worthy of any royal occasion.
|Headbands available @ S.O.S $29.|
