Wedding hats are the ultimate accessories for a day celebrating your loved ones’ nuptials.
Thought they were a little passé? We promise they’re not – but there are a few tricks to getting them right.
The first thing to think about is how they’ll match your outfit. You’ll want to make sure that your hat complements your frock rather than detracts from it.
That means it’s goodbye to over-the-top fascinators and hello to simple headpieces.
But don’t worry! You don’t have to wear something totally dowdy. There are plenty of seriously chic designs both online and on the high street.
Not sure where to look for your wedding hat? Here at LOOK HQ, we’ve done all the hard work for you.
We’ve rounded up 12 of our favourite designs that we think will suit ladies heading to all sorts of different ceremonies.
If you’re a guest at a glitzy venue, you’ll want to take a look at Accessorize’s metallic fascinator. Off to an outdoor event? River Island’s faux suede piece is a more casual option.
BHS’s navy hat is a classic choice while Dorothy Perkins’ 70s-inspired floppy design will make heads turn on a boho fashionista’s big day.
Another thing to consider is colour.
It may be a big no-no to wear white at a wedding – but that rule doesn’t apply for hats. Pick up Topshop’s summery favourite for the ah-mazingly bargain price of £14.
Reiss’s black number is perfect for offsetting a patterned dress and the chocolate brown hue of Miss Selfridge’s creation will go everything.
If you want to liven up a plain outfit with a splash of colour, we recommend you take a look at ASOS’s red headpiece and Marks & Spencer’s girlie pink number.
