There’s no such thing as “wedding season” anymore. Weddings are year-round, with many couples looking to monopolise a trend, theme or style for their big day. If you’re attending a wedding in the coming months, you’ve probably already planned out what you’ll be wearing. It’s an important day after all and the best excuse to hit the shops and find a new head to toe outfit.
After picking out a gorgeous dress (careful you don’t upstage the bride – unless you are the bride!) and some equally stunning footwear, you’ll be looking at how to accessorize in a stylish way to tie the ensemble together. This is often the hardest part. But don’t worry! We’ve got you covered. Follow this advice, because there’s no more sure-fire way to make a statement than landing the right wedding hat.
Understandably, finding the right head garment can prove to be a bit tricky. It’s not every day that you’re on the look-out for formal headwear, is it? On top of this there are so many options to choose from and all of them have their own unique advantages.
Don’t worry if you don’t know your casques from your calots, the right hat is out there for you and if you follow this advice you’re guaranteed to make an impression.
As a guest
You could opt for the stylish 1920s Cocktail, the demure but classy Pillbox or perhaps make more of a splash with an elegant Fascinator.
As the bride
You can’t go wrong with a subtle tiara to compliment your choice of dress.
That isn’t to say that there aren’t other options out there. From fedoras to turbans, there’s a rich history of varied headgear at weddings and there’s sure to be one that suits your theme and style for the big day. The examples featured in the graphic below however, are considered the most timeless and widely used – making it more likely you’ll be able to work them into your outfit plans.
