Once upon a time, the spring racing carnival was ALL about the hat or fascinator (and the races, apparently!) Wide-brimmed styles, structured cuts, tulle, flowers and feathers... if there was a hat or fascinator, we found a way to wear it.
But as time went on and the races became even more about the fashion, we became spoilt for choice in what we could wear on our head trackside. Now, there are still loads of hats and fascinators to choose from, but ther's also plenty of other options too - think crowns, veils, headbands and hair pins.
Ahead of the races, we look at a few of our favourite styles that a bit different to your regular hat or fascinator.
