1. Red top hat
Step out in colour with this top hat style creation from Stephen Jones. Ideal for adding the finishing touch to formal wear, it’s made from soft wool and features a velvet and mesh rose appliqué.



2. Feather detail hat
Pale blush pink is a huge hit for wedding colour schemes, wedding dresses, flowers and guests’ outfits. Confirm your stylish status with this graceful, two-tier, lightweight hat with feather detail and strong shaping. Available in cameo or navy.



3. Ben De Lisi floppy hat
Ideal for laid-back summer weddings, this stylish woven headpiece is available from Debenhams and features a ribbon trim. Its monochrome appeal is sure to be a versatile piece after the wedding.



4. Vintage brooch fascinator 
If a smaller headpiece is more your style, this Pretty Eccentric fascinator complete with veil and vintage brooch could be a delicate accompaniment to the mother-of-the-bride outfit. The fact it comes in a broad range of colours including ivory, bottle green, navy, gold and black means there are options to suit any shade of dress or suit.



5. Polka dot floral hat
Combining florals and polka dots, this show stopping hat from Jacques Vert tips to the side and is perfect for a sophisticated guest.



6. Pale blue hat fascinator
This fascinator, with its tilted appearance and bow detail could almost be mistaken for a hat. The soft shade will complement an outfit of most colours, while the stretch headband offers a little comfort for those unfamiliar with wearing hats.
