5 Great Looks with Flower Accessories
If you've ever wanted to add a flower to your outfit, but weren't sure how to do so, these five looks will lend you some quick and easy ideas.
Essential Item: Floral Crown
A simple accessory such as a floral crown or headband can be added to any festival look to achieve a pretty bohemian hippy aesthetic. This look has been around for years on the festival circuit - the likes of Coachella & Glastonbury are perfect destinations for the floral crown because of the spirited nature of this accessory.
The Cassandra floral crown from Flower Gypsies is a perfect example of this accessory. Available for about $35.00, it is a dainty crown on floral twine with small roses (various colors available).
Pair your floral accessory with a printed tea dress, and white lace or crochet number, or even some denim cut-offs and a frilly tank top.
If you can't find a crown or hairband with the right color combination or appearance to suit you and your outfit, don't worry; these are easy to make at home. For a crown, all you need is:
- A bendy piece of metal wire
- Fake flowers of your choice from any craft shop
- Some strong glue
To make the crown, adjust the wire to the right size for your head and affix the flowers in the arrangement of your choice with the glue.
Mother of the Bride or Groom

This one is for all of you gorgeous ladies who have your children's weddings coming up. You have to make sure you don't upstage the bride in any way, but naturally, you want to look fabulous. The photos from this day are going to be re-visited in decades to come, and you want to look back at your outfit fondly.
The best way to complete a mother of the bride or groom outfit is to add a fascinator to your dress or suit. You'll certainly stand out, and your outfit will look complete, with that added glamour that every wedding needs. Be sure to choose your clothing first, and then find a fascinator that coordinates with the color scheme you have chosen.
