At Debenhams, dressing up for the annual racing events has never been easier – especially with our Top Hat by Stephen Jones style guide…
The stylish collection, Top Hat by Stephen Jones, encapsulates a chic range of fabulous hair pieces, from beautiful headbands to show stopping hats, all perfect for adding the finishing touch to a special outfit.
The range is great for many occasions; be it the races, a wedding or a garden party – and look great teamed with a stunning dress to ensure you feel fabulous.
As seen on our summer TV campaign, we’re here to show you the best way to wear the collection this season…
You’ll be sweet and pretty with this black figure of eight headband (also available in navy and pink) whilst placing the bow over the right eye for a cute classy look. Similarly, the bow on the pink bow veil headband (also available in black) is detailed with pretty gem stones but better worn with the bow over the left eye.
For something more full and dramatic, this black or red floral ruffled fascinator looks best when worn forward on the head with the front touching the brow. Nevertheless, you can use the comb in the back for extra hold.
If you’re more of a hat wearer, try this navy figure of eight boater hat with the balance on the top of the head at a slight angle (note: do not pull fully onto the head as you need to keep the dip in the crown). Alternatively, wear this pink oversized mesh bow hat (also available in black) straight on the head, where the trim sits over the right ear, as the seam in inner bind determines the centre back of the hat.
Love florals? Wear this black ribbon fascinator with the button over the right eye and with hair tied back or to one side to flaunt the flower detail on the band. For something more upright, wear the black petal headband with flower trim over the right eye.
Don’t forget to make a statement by wearing this black flower gem fascinator with the flower trim over the right eye. Remember – veiling should sit comfortably over your eyes and nose. To brighten it up, wear this pink flower fascinator over right eye and let the disc sit very high on the head.
Likewise, this pale pink pansy headband is also better worn with the disc over right eye with the petals falling onto the face.
Last but not least, for something more Gatsby-esque, wear this cream cloche hat with flowers at the front over the right eye – it’s the ultimate way of working that thirties-style.
With a guide like this, you can’t help but be a racing success.
