A women’s Fascinator is a type of headpiece designed as a form of lightweight knitted head covering. Since the early 1990s, the term was transformed to refer to a type of formal head-wear that was worn as an alternative to the traditional hat. Typically, a Fascinator features a large decorative design attached to a headband or a clip to attach to another headpiece, oftentimes including a base to emulate a regular ladieshat. Fascinators are a great way to accent any formal outfit and really show off your sense of style.
