At this point, I can distinctly hear some of you murmur to yourselves “I know what a hat is but the word ‘fascinator’ and ‘hatinator’ completely throws me!” Okay.  Let me take a moment to describe these ….

What are Fascinators?

With less weight than a full hat, but similar to the Kentucky Derby and church-going women, fascinators are a great alternative to hats.  Striking, modern and easy to wear, this head piece can still be the eye-catching centerpiece of an outfit, is a timeless accessory, and is a style of formal millinery that is popular among British women.

And a Hatinator? 

Simply put, it’s the perfect ‘half way house’ between a hat and a fascinator.
