Autumn Racing Millinery: 9 Fascinators to Top Off Your Outfits

 

Autumn racing fashion, and autumn racing millinery in particular, are different from spring racing fashion in a few, significant ways. While spring fashion is all about airy lace, sinamay, straw, florals, and pastels, autumn is all about structure: moody palettes, more rigorous structure, and of course, heavier material to protect against the cold.

Strapless and singlet-strapped dresses are out: Autumn racing dresses in general have sleeves, ostensibly to keep you warm (although it’s still early in the season and God knows the weather is still sweltering). Belts, coats, and jackets come into play, and so do close-toed pumps and ankle boots.

Hats and fascinators, on the other hand, are mostly going to be felt, wool, leather, and metallic. Here are some head pieces to start you off.
