in Accessories, Style

In Nigeria, the custom of wearing an elaborate fascinator on one’s head was more common at weddings, and usually worn by bridesmaids. The fashion staple gives its wearer a royal aura as it is commonly used for royal weddings (We saw a lot of fascinators at The Royal wedding).

Fascinators are fast replacing hats, especially at weddings with its huge comeback, and has been made versatile by guests who love the classic trend. Hence, guests are now taking over the trend for different events.

Often made from feathers, straws, lace and/or flowers, fascinators aren’t just for weddings as they can be worn to make a statement at any occasion.

It’s grown popular with bridal trains and even brides themselves. Besides wedding events, the fascinator can also be worn to other occasions like cocktails, dinner outings, award shows, premiers, church service etc.

Some fascinators are small and mild and just the right amount of royal touch you need to add to your outfit, while some are extravagant and loud. The best way to rock a fascinator effortlessly is by picking the right outfit for the right event, then taking into account your skin tone and facial structure, so you don’t end up wearing a fascinator for a costume party or miss what would have been your regal moment due to bad styling.

Other headpiece trends, such as the Turban, resurfaced and when combined with the fascinator, gives its wearer an outstanding look. A simple yet classic combination would do the trick anytime.

Bellas, let’s have in mind that a fascinator might be a statement accessory and add a bit of drama and extraness to an outfit, but a fascinator twice the size of your face could be a bit distracting.
