As the Perth race season approaches, it’s important to think about your fascinators and headpieces and how you will dress up for the occasion. The right fascinator can attract even more attention than the right dress, and going the fresh floral route will definitely turn heads this year.
Floral crowns take over
Younger visitors to Perth race courses will know that floral headpieces and crowns have been taking over fashion since they were introduced as filters on social media. Even better than putting them on digitally is to have the real thing, which will be a hugely popular choice for fascinators.
The gorgeous blooms are sure to link in with other current trends, such as the boho and blousy looks. With fresh flowers put together in a beautiful arrangement that just works, your fascinator will complement any number of styles. You can pick out a central colour that fits your outfit, or go with a wild array of flowers that really bring the boho look to life.
Natural florals that call to the heritage of the local area will be a big hit, and more exotic looks will also garner a lot of attention.
It looks like fresh flowers will be a big theme at the Melbourne Cup, too, with the marketing team choosing to incorporate them into the design of the show. This means you will be bang on trend, not only for the fashion season but also for the racing season.
Special events a perfect fit
When a special event arrives, it’s always important to make an effort. Fresh flower fascinators are perfect fits for these occasions when wearing the same old crowns or hats just won’t be good enough. These pieces are truly a unique one-off for the event, which makes them feel all the more special.
What kind of events might you wear them for? Well, here are some important ideas to consider:
- The Melbourne Cup, held this year on Tuesday 7th of November
- Weddings, whether as a guest or as the bride
- Hens Do’s (you can even do a flower-crown class as an activity on the day)
- Engagement parties
- Birthday parties
- Christenings and baby showers
- Annual celebrations
- Prom nights
- New Year’s Eve
- Christmas parties
Whenever the occasion is special enough to warrant a new dress, it is certainly special enough to consider a floral fascinator. If you don’t want to buy a new dress, a fascinator is also a great way to breathe new life into an old look.
Pair fascinators with other accessories
Travelling in a group or as a couple? There’s an easy way to ensure that you all share the same style while maintaining your personal quirks. There are plenty of floral accessories to try, made from fresh flowers and designed to last for the full day.
Consider purchasing the following for your companions:
- Boutonnieres for men, matched to your own floral fascinator
- Half or full floral crowns for the friend who loves to go all out
- Floral dog collars for your canine friends
- Simple wrist corsages and buttonholes for younger members of the party
Don’t forget that it’s possible to give everyone the same themed looks, simply by choosing the same flowers, even while wearing different products. This is a fun and natural way to get your party all dressed up together.
Not only that but for weddings and celebrations outside of the race course, it’s almost a given that everyone will want to match up!
