Walking through Coachella must have been like walking through a desert decorated with flowers – confusing, unpredictable and downright beautiful. It seemed like anyone who was anyone was in attendance. Each chic celeb at one stage during the music festivities wore something floral. With this floral trend continuing throughout 2014, from Lana Del Ray to Alexa Chung, few aren’t sporting the floral glow. So, what is all the fuss about? Would you, our FRL readers, wear a crown like headpiece out and about this Spring/Summer 2014?
Yes, they look girly. Yes, they are cute and I must admit on the one occasion I did wear one I felt like a princess but do they look good in the fashion stakes? I wouldn’t wear one walking around London. I wouldn’t wear one popping to the shops to get a pint of milk. For me they are just for festivals and Las Vegas type occasions. Day time Vegas though. Night time Vegas is far too glamorous for it. With Topshop and even Claire’s Accessories selling them in the bucket load should we invest?
If I was honest I would say no to spending your life savings on a designer version. It is a novelty item at the end of the day, so, unless you have pounds to burn, step away from Moschino. For a cheap and cheerful purchase keep an eye out at Primark. Remember when you see that floral headpiece for £2 do not hesitate to buy it as they will sell out quicker than you can say “Star Buy”.
Let’s reflect for a moment. I would usually bask in the glory that I wouldn’t spend much on a frivolous item but I had forgotten the bonkers purchases I made before my big trip in 2012. For my 6 week trip to Thailand I got so carried away with the excitement of it all that I bought two pairs of über long feathered earrings from Topshop for £20 a pair. Who is the crazy one now? This may not seem like a lot but for someone on a student budget this was an elaborate and over the top buy. Though the bizarre pairings did create some complimentary responses.
Moral of the story floral headpieces are fun, they look great and you’re going to look like you went to the effort of glamping up for the occasion. If you’re artistic – DIY and if you’re broke like me stalk Primark like you’ve never stalked before and for our classier readers do you dare get a designer equivalent? It’s your call, but get that flower power going for this festival season my FRL readers.
