FRESH IS BEST

Fas­ci­na­tors are tra­di­tional faves for the races but fresh flo­ral head­pieces can wow

When it comes to race wear, fas­ci­na­tors have al­ways been, well … very fas­ci­nat­ing to me.

I think it might be the fact that the chances of them go­ing wrong are usu­ally a lot higher than them go­ing right.

While there’s no doubt that rac­ing screams a chance to don a head­piece like no other event out there, it’s al­ways good to think of the best way to ex­e­cute it.

In my opin­ion, this sea­son may be call­ing to ditch the tra­di­tional fas­ci­na­tors and head to the florist for a fresh flo­ral head­piece ar­range­ment.

Af­ter all, what bet­ter way to nod to the ‘spring’ rac­ing car­ni­val than with a cel­e­bra­tion of the bloom­ing spring pro­duce?

Other pluses in­clude: em­a­nat­ing a stun­ning nat­u­ral fra­grance and em­brac­ing the nat­u­ral world around us which, let’s face it, can of­ten be over­looked by hu­man­ity.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not sug­gest­ing a ba­sic flower crown that is nor­mally re­served for clog­ging up In­sta­gram feeds but a slightly more cre­ative take on fleurs on the head. There’s a mul­ti­tude of places to look for in­spi­ra­tion, as plenty of fash­ion brands have been rep­ping this ex­act idea of late. Take a look at the Ro­darte SS18 run­way show or the Dolce & Gab­bana cam­paign in Capri (pic­tured) or even Mediter­ranean jew­ellery brand Keef Palas (keef­palas.com), which sells dried flower ear­rings. You sim­ply can’t go past Frida Kahlo’s take on flo­ral head­pieces – she’s se­ri­ously the OG of the look.
