Remember those very small hats. Well, not exactly small but smaller than a normal hat should be? How I hated them. It was funny looking and not in trend plus I always preferred the normal scarfs my mates wore back then to church. But guess what guys, its back. They are called fascinators and its back with a bang with different designs, sizes and shapes; some as big as a normal hat, some smaller than your head size where you get to use a pin to hold them or rubber band. They are a must have now. You get to wear them at weddings, church and events of your choice not necessarily church service alone. It gives you that elegant and rich look as a woman, there is a plus too, it makes a bold fashion statement. The amazing part is, you can not only buy, it’s very easy to make one, so you can create a design of your choice and look your look.
Fascinators are so trending these days that some of us are trying to make the “Turban” look like one. The style is so attractive and gives a bold fashion statement.
Fascinators are worn on occasions where hats are customary, sometimes, it serves as an evening accessory where it may be called a cocktail hat. It is generally worn with fairly formal attire but Africans have carried it to another level. You can wear it on your nice Ankara outfit, even your turban too. In addition, fascinators and turbans are not just worn for church events but also weddings, dinner, any formal outing.
Here is a DIY on how to make one.
Get you a fascinator and enjoy the chic and classy way to rock a hat.
