FASCINATORS: LEFT OR RIGHT SIDE OF THE HEAD?

| May 21, 2018 | no comments

I stumbled on comments by social media users criticizing Amal Clooney’s left side placement of her fascinator for the recent royal wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, and decided to share with you the fashion rule guiding wearing fascinators.

Traditionally, fascinators are worn on the right side of the head (see the royal wedding group photo below).
However, one can choose to wear them on the left side (like Amal did).

You can also wear them on the front part of your head, although, I recommend you stick to right or left side as wearing them in the front might be a bit tricky especially the rounded ones; Positioning the rounded ones especially the big ones has to be done right to avoid making the overall look bulky, tacky, and unappealing.
Victoria Beckham also chose to wear hers on the left side to same event. I wore mine on the left too for my sister’s wedding in December last year. Photos below.

Whichever position you choose, be sure to choose the right type of fascinator, and place it appropriately to look as fascinating as possible.
