Hat and jacket

Hi everybody! What do you call the kind of black hat and the kind of light pink jacket that Rod Stewart's wife wears?

Thanks a lot!

The shoulder wrap would be a stole, but don't know about the hat - it's pretty old-fashioned.

My dearly beloved suggests that the hair adornment is a fascinator defined as : a woman's light, decorative headpiece consisting of feathers, flowers, beads, etc. attached to a comb or hair clip.

BonnieL - I am tempted to agree with you on "stole" but the fact that it is tied, says my dearly beloved, means that it isn't a stole but, rather, a wrap.

I was only aware of the very old version of fascinator - a scarf. Thanks for adding to my vocabulary!

As to stole or wrap - it can go either way.

I must reciprocate : I wasn't aware of the old meaning. I don't see the fashion returning : http://www.karensvariety.com/images/COP ... or1049.jpg

Nice photo, Tony. I think my Mum had some of those things covering the extra tissue rolls stacked on the tank of the toilet!
