These aren't just excellent burlesque accessories- sexy, fun, and eye catching. Fascinators are also making appearances on the high street on Saturday mornings, in classy restaurants, and even in pubs and clubs. Vintage clothing has never been more popular and adding a fascinator to any outfit means a touch of 1920s style. Casual or formal, a spray of feathers and lace will serve you well.
On the burlesque stage, fascinators are common but not so common that you can't make your mark. There are plenty to choose from. Tiny top hats have a light-hearted cabaret feel while peacock feathers are very period, and can be the perfect flare of colour on an otherwise dark and plain outfit. Brighter feather plumes help draw attention towards your face and flowers are elegant but a little cheeky as well.
Away from the theatre and the music hall, fascinators have been graced some of the biggest occasions of the decade. The spectacular and slightly bizarre 'hatinator' Princess Beatrice wore to the last Royal Wedding attracted more biting comments than any other but the critics fell silent after this piece raised more than £80,000 at auction. Not bad for second-hand!
There are two ways a fascinator can attach. The headband style is a little less discreet but can look quite good anyway, particularly if you are going for that vintage feel. Crocodile clips are simple and can be attached anywhere you like. Some models can easily double as brooches.
