Wedding Wednesday: Hats Off to Secret Chic

Seeing as I did a little post on wedding guest outfits last week, I’m going to give a little time to hats, this week.  I think hats have really made a comeback with this vintage revival of late.  Hats used to be the absolute must have for a wedding and I think they’re making a welcome return.

I’m off to a wedding soon and haven’t found anything particularly inspiring on the high street. I stumbled upon SecretChic (www.secretchic.ie) who rent amazing pieces, and I’m sold. Here are a few of my favourites.

A rather classic, Kate Middleton style to start..

I think this one could be stunning for a summer wedding, love the colours.

here are a few tips from Secret Chic owner Sarah Carberry:

·        Always choose the style based on the shape of your face. As a general rule of thumb those with a round face should choose a hat with a high crown and wider brim. Or a fascinator tilted forwards and to the side with a tall feature.
·        Those with a heart shape face n oval face are very lucky because they can wear any shape, any size with any feature.
·        Women with a long face look better in small neat pieces or fascinators with features fanning out from the face or, alternatively, can carry off a wide brim hat.
·        If you have a small face never wear a very large hat. A fascinators works better.
·        If you have a large face avoid small head hugging hats or fascinators.
