Since the 2011 Royal Wedding, occasion hats and fascinators have been back in vogue, but sometimes all the multi-coloured feathers and stiffened linen can leave a wedding party bearing a remarkable resemblance to the avian section of the Muppets.
However millinery has been undergoing somewhat of a renaissance – thanks in large part to Philip Treacy – with the introduction of modern materials and designs that complement rather than dominate your face, and the evidence is now trickling onto the highstreet. So, if you’re off to the races or a wedding this summer and want to stand out from the crowd in the right kind of way, then check out our picks of alternative occasion headpieces:
Rock n’ Rose Claudia Floral Berry Headband in white, €52.71
