No spring racing outfit would be complete without a hat or fascinator to match! There are so many spring racing millinery options to suit every woman and every style; whether it’s a showy headpiece, an abstract hat or decorative headband.
The best part of spring racing fashion is that it is the one time of the year you can really go ‘out-there’ with a head-turning ornamental headpiece and push the fashion envelope to the extreme.
Choosing a fascinator can be the most difficult part of assembling your racing outfit. We have made it easy for you by selecting our 5 top favourite celeb-inspired headpieces from our range of fascinators to wow the crowd on race day.
