1" fork 1 1/8" Headset

Hi, hope someone who knows more about bikes than me can help!
I have just accidentally bought a 2nd hand 1" full carbon fork. My frame is a carbon 1 1/8".
Is there any way I can marry the two?
Could I just buy a different headset?
Or is there a shim I could buy?
Thanks, help needed!

If the headtube uses a traditional HS rather than integrated,the are reducing bushings that allow use of a 1" HS in a 11/8" HT. If your frame uses a Campy hiddenset HS, it can swing either way.

Apologies, should have said originally.
My fork is for a non integrated headset.
I currently only have the frame for my bike (hence buying the fork.)
It is a Trek 5500. I can, therefore buy pretty much any headset I need.
Do you know where i can buy the bits I'll need?
Thanks again.

Well yeah, you can buy any 1" threadless HS,but you also need the reducing bushings.
