Caring For Your Fascinator or Hat

Thursday, 18 June 2015  |  prettycool

Fascinator and hat season is upon us, with Ladies Day at Ascot in full flow today and the wedding season peaking.

If you have bought a fascinator or hat this year and have had it a while before the occasion it might just need a little lift. If it is made with sinamay which is the straw mesh type material this is easily moulded back into shape by applying a little steam and the sinamay can then be manipulated or straightened if you should wish to.

Like many people you may being wearing a fascinator or hat from a previous occasion and the above would also apply to this. Some of the feathers may be looking a little drab, if so and if there are plenty on there why not just snip them off at the base, you would never notice and you could even reinvent it by buying some odd feathers and adding another colour to coordinate with a different outfit. A classic Hat or fascinator will never go out of fashion so why not make use of it.

We still have plenty of fascinators and hats for sale at Pretty Cool and as always can give advice on styles via email caroline@prettycool.co.uk or by telephone 01438 545 181.

Whatever occasion you're attending, we all hope you have an amazing day and would love to have some photographs of our stunning customers to add to our Facebook page.
