In my last outfit post, I wore my new and very beloved flower headband from Claire’s. Last Saturday I wore it again for a singing performance and I’ve come to realise that I really love to wear flowers in my hair! Flowers are spring-like but also summery, fairy-ish and girly. I happen to love all those things too, so flowers are perfect.
Flower headbands come in different shapes and sizes. The one I have has wires you can shape in any way you like, but there also those that make a firm circle and are not moveable. I personally prefer mine, because it also has an elastic at the back so you can put it comfortably around your head. There’s only one downside: I like to put the band around my head and underneath my hair. The elastic band pushes up my hair in the back, but luckily this can easily be fixed with some clips. ^^
Flower headbands can definitely complete an outfit. They stand out, but are not too distracting. They can go easily with a casual shirt-and-jeans-look, but also with a fairy-like (Lolita)dress.
If you think a headband might be too much, just adding one or two flowerclips will give a cute effect too. And you can always go OTT: flower headband + flower clips + headbow..? ^^
