Royal Wedding Style: Fabulous fascinators
I'm attending a wedding next month: I'm sorry to say it isn't a royal one, but every girl wants to feel like a princess on her wedding day, and to get the regal spirit well and truly flowing, my friend the bride has requested that as many guests as possible wear hats.
Hats, you say? Well, like many women under 50, I have to admit that the prospect of hefty headgear fills me with dread. But a cheery little fascinator - a mini top hat, feather hairslide or spray of sinamay really appeals. Kate Middleton herself has often been seen sporting one of these celebratory items, and we're sure that plenty of her guests will be wearing them on 29th April. So in honour of the event and of spring weddings everywhere, we've picked out a few of our favourites currently available on the high street.
