Dress your tresses with style

By Khiara Elliott

With the annual Spring Racing Carnival around the corner, ladies and gents alike will be fighting to secure their spot on the “best dressed” list.

Although a fascinator is a nod to the tradition of top hats and tailcoats, milliner Philip Treacy has declared the fascinator “dead”.

CBD News consulted fashion textile merchandising student and aspiring stylist Mil Yotkamthorn about her views on headwear alternatives.

“Fascinators are a little outdated simply because people are just way more creative these days,” she said.

“Younger females are turning away from the old-school fascinators and are now wearing gypsy-inspired head pieces. Smaller statement pieces that are simple yet dramatic are what I think will be the newest trend this season.”

So, ladies, instead of opting for the hat and lace combo this spring season, perhaps try something a little subtler.

A perfect example of simple, but dramatic, is a gold feather barrette. Pin one side of your water wave curls behind your ear with this pretty piece to create a timeless glam look. You can pick up one of these for around $20 on Etsy.

A simple up-do can be quickly and easily improved with the adding of a jewelled hair comb to the top or either side of your bun. Any bridal store will have a selection available for purchase, and depending on size these beauties can run anywhere from $19 to $90.

This spring season, embrace your lavish side and have your hair dripping in jewels and gold. It’s time to dress your tresses!
