11 Adorable Fascinator Hats You’ll Love

Posted on

For formal headwear, nothing beats the striking elegance of a fascinator hat.

Fascinator hats combine the best of both worlds: the look and functionality of traditional hats mixed with the decorative style of fascinators. They are attached to the hair by a comb, headband, or clip, and these stunning pieces are often decorated with feathers, flowers, or beads and perched on the side or top of the head.

Traditionally worn at weddings, black tie events, formal parties, and premium horse-racing events like the Kentucky Derby, fascinator hats are sure to be the perfect accessory.

Here are our top picks for adorable women’s fascinator hats that will upgrade any formal look.
