Enhance Fashion

The race isn’t the only event that stops the nation on Melbourne Cup day. From fascinators to hatinators, the fashion stakes have soared this year. And thanks to Enhance Fashion we’re spoilt for choice when it comes racing season headwear. With over 100 headwear pieces to choose from, Enhance Fashion boasts the largest selection of its kind in WA. Choose from fascinators, hatinators, head bands, combs and clips in all of SS16 hottest colours. Follow our top tips to choosing a headpiece that will guarantee you look your best on the field:
 
 Choose your headpiece first
In other words, choose a dress to go with your fascinator rather than the other way around. This is because the headpiece is often the most difficult part of your ensemble to buy and may not always compliment your racing dress. With so much more racing dresses to choose from be sure to choose the former first as this will set the tone of your entire outfit.
 
Pick your colour scheme
Do you prefer classic black and white? Or glamour in racy red. Is a spring time pink more suited to your colouring? Or be bold in yellow or turquoise. 
Popular this season are bright pops of hot pink, fuchsia and magenta. Pantone Colours of the Year Rose Quartz (a soft pink) and Serenity (a pale blue) continue to lead the way for Spring racing while monochromatic hair pieces will easily complement any black or white ensemble.
Once you have chosen your colour scheme look for a hat or fascinator that works with your colour.
 
Style to suit your face shape
We think about enhancing our best features and hiding the not so nice parts of our body so why not do this when we are selecting headwear. The aim is to select a piece that complements your face shape, much like choosing a hair style or a pair of sunnies. If you wear glasses or intend to wear sunnies go for a fascinator over a hat. Those with a narrow face should choose hats or fascinators with width, or 20’s styles that sit on your temple or fringe. If you have a full face stay away from small hats, instead chose a headpiece with a wide brim or details to create the illusion of a proportional face.  A square face or prominent jawline can be soften with abstract angles or layers and heights to draw attention away from the face.
 
Think about your hair style
Consider how your headpiece will be placed before selecting a hairstyle. If you’re keen on an up do, consider bunching it to one side to allow your fascinator, comb or clip to sit within the hair. Wear your locks curly for a soft feminine look to match a delicate headpiece with soft colours and feathers. If your headpiece has prominent angles or is futuristic, keep your hair simple and sleek. A sleek ponytail or bun will divert attention to the headpiece. If you are wearing a hat you will need to consider wearing it all day, or face the dreaded hat hair underneath.
 
Be daring!
Fascinators at Enhance Fashion will set you apart in the fashion game this racing season. Don’t be afraid to wear bold colours, or large and detailed fascinators with striking angles and embellishments- just be sure that you keep your dress and accessories simple. If your dress is outrageous, then go subtle with the headpiece.
