A fascinator or fascinator-style hat can be a perfect, show-stopping centerpiece to a formal outfit, and choosing the right fascinator to match your style makes all the difference. But with so many colors and styles to choose from, how do you find the best fascinator?
While the fascinator is the star of the show, the trick is to choose the rest of your outfit—the dress, shoes, jewelry, bag, etc.—first. Then you can find a fascinator that matches or complements your outfit.
How to Match a Fascinator to Your Outfit
The most popular way to match a fascinator to your outfit is to pick a color that matches or complements the color of your dress. If the dress has more than one color, you can choose an accent color and find a matching fascinator. Alternatively, you could find a fascinator in a beautifully contrasting color. Regardless, matching the color of the fascinator to your dress is a classic, sleek option.
Another approach is to coordinate the color of the fascinator hat to match your shoes, bag, jewelry, or other accessories. This option can really tie the whole outfit together.
Whether you match the fascinator to your dress or shoes, make sure to wear a fascinator that draws the eye and leaves an unforgettable impression on passersby.
