Fascinators 101: Hat or dress first?

Should I buy my fascinator or dress first?”  Have no doubt about it, the fashion world’s version of the ‘chicken or egg?’ debate is very much alive & kicking.

Here at SHOW PONY Millinery, we are firmly ensconced in Team FASCINATOR.

SHOW PONY - Spring 2016However, this isn’t just some typical sales push from millinery designers – we’ve actually got a few reasons to back up our opinion.

For example, fascinators are much harder to find than dresses and so when you fall in love with one, we think you should snatch it up!  You never know when you might need it – even if just to wear when you want to brighten a rainy day.

That, and what girl doesn’t love a good old impulse purchase?

Secondly, thanks to the advent of online shopping the world is your oyster when it comes to buying dresses.

This resulting abundance of frilly frocks means you’ll find it a damn sight easier to find a dress that matches your dream fascinator, rather than trying to work it the other way round.

However, all of this is not to say you’re in the wrong if you purchase your dress first. In fact, most people do (and we would be lying if we said we weren’t guilty of it).

That’s why we offer a custom design that sits alongside our range of ready-to-wear fascinators.  We will also happily tweak one of our existing styles (where possible) to suit your tastebuds – and your dress.  Interested? Give us a yell here.

Happy shopping ladies!
