We are barrelling head first for another Spring Racing carnival whether it’s spectator-free or otherwise in 2021. It’s normally a jovial time of excitement, frippery and fun and without a doubt, our favourite time of the year at Olga Berg. This year, you can bet we’re still dressing up for the racing season and going all out with our accessories because, why not! Read on for our round-up on our favourite spring racing hats & fascinators to help you feel like you’re trackside too.
Best Spring Racing Carnival Hats in 2022
Spring racing carnival hats are a total vibe. Not only do they give you the added bonus of sun protection, but they’re also seriously cute. Our #1 pick for this year is the Anika Lace Boater. With black or white lace trim to choose from, they’ll work with any outfit and colour combo. The lace and pearl overlay add a touch of elegance, but the straw hat is also casual enough that you could easily wear it to a Sunday afternoon picnic too. The options are endless really!
Okay, we’re digressing from strictly hats for a moment but we couldn’t not talk about our Cosette. She’s a stylish button fascinator that sits atop a headband featuring hand twisted sinamay loops, and a mesh trim for a little sparkle. She comes in red, black or blush so there’s a shade everyone will love too. We see the red Cosette working wonders with an all-black or all-white ensemble with a glass of champagne in one hand, and the remote control in the other!
Love a little romance? We think you’ll like our Daisy girl then. She’s ultra feminine, dreamy and whimsical in her champagne blush pink shade with big faux flowers to boot. The best part about Daisy is you’ll get wear out of her to all your wedding events too as she’s seriously the perfect muted shade. We’re officially obsessed!
4. Nat Button
In the same gorgeous metallic blush shade as Daisy, our Nat button hat is glam upon glam upon glam. Featuring a rose and quill, she’s super elegant and just screams race day hat. We see her working beautifully with a pure white or cream dress and an up-do situation. Throw her on and gather for a picnic with your designated 4 person party as you celebrate race season.
Understated elegance is our Gwendolyn to a tee. In a soft grey-mauve, she’s a little different to your regular race day hats. Featuring a wave of sculptural sinamay, hand manipulated and arranged on a simple sinamay button, she turns heads subtly.
