Organizers have tightened the dress code for the Royal Enclosure at Ascot. Among the changes: no fascinators allowed.
The new dress code states: “Hats should be worn; a headpiece which has a base of four inches (10cm) or more in diameter is acceptable as an alternative to a hat.”
Of course this requires a reexamination of Feministe’s own policy about hat posts. Should we continue to include discussion of fascinators along with our standard discussion of hats, or should we move toward a more hat-centric model (including, of course, other headpieces of appropriate circumference)?
